SOURCE: reduce power and check engine lights on

reduced power usally points toward a gas pedal to throttle correlation meaning the drive by wire system is where the problem is

SOURCE: why does reduce engine power light comes on chevy

That is a hard problem to pin point without knowing what codes the computer has stored. It can be any number or sensors or engine problems.

You can go to most auto parts stores and they will pull the codes for you for free.

SOURCE: 2005 corolla , check engine light on and car

Take your car to a Toyota dealership. Have them scan the car for trouble codes. If they come up with a P-2716 code, you need a new Engine Control Unit (the computer). If your car has under 80,000 miles on it, Toyota will replace it for free.

SOURCE: WHAT IS THE REDUCED POWER LIGHT ON AN 2005 CHEVY

It means that there is a problem in your throttle actuator control system.The PCM will limit power until the problem is resolved.You should probably take your vehicle to a GM Dealership for further diagnosis.

SOURCE: 2006 Chevy Impala reduced engine power

best bet is to stop in at a Pep Boys, Autozone, or similar big autoparts seller, and ask for free trouble code scan, which should pinpoint area causing problem. If not obvious by codes, what is necessary to repair the problem code, get back to us with those codes and we will be glad to assist you further. Better this way, takes away the guess work, and saves you money, as well as getting it right the first time.

Service stabilitrak and reduce engine power on my 2012 chevy equinox and suggestions on what it could be also had a bunch of codes for timing position and I replaced all timing components


The reduced engine power light is most likely setting the stabilitrack light to come on. The reduced engine power light is normally set when the computer senses an issue with the throttle actuator assembly. This actuator assembly needs a corolation signal from the gas pedal sensor to operate properly. In my opinion and experience in the automotive repair industry, the throttle actuator assembly is more prone to failure than the gas pedal sensor.

Chevy cobalt 2010 scan code po641 reduce engine power


Possible causes
- Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM)
- ECM harness is open or shorted
- ECM circuit poor electrical connection
- Shorted sensor on 5 volt circuit
help.jpg What does this mean? When is the code detected?
The Engine Control Module (ECM) has detected the sensor 5 volt reference circuit voltage is higher or lower than expected
Possible symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
P0641 Chevrolet Description
The control module has 2 internal 5-volt reference buses called "5-volt reference 1" and"5-volt reference 2". Each reference bus provided 5-volt reference circuit for more than one sensor. Therefore, a fault condition on one 5-volt reference circuit will affect the other 5-volt reference circuits connected to the reference bus. The control module monitors the voltage on the 5-volt reference buses.

Service Stabilitrak-Reduced Engine Power


the engine light is a generic fault indicator in your car to point out something is not quite right with the engine, having a loss of power as well is also known in some areas as Limp Mode or Safety Mode. it means the car is restricting the power it gives to ensure no damage it done to the engine.

the only certain way to find out what is wrong is to take it to a garage that has diagnostics equipment that can read the fault codes from the vechicles ECU (the fault codes will be the reason the light on the dash has come on as its reporting a fault somewhere)..

your mechanic should be able to tell you what is wrong with the engine from that and give you a more accurate cost at fixing it.
