Check engine light came on then reduce engine power


When this light comes on it means the computer control module has detected a fault in the system, it has reduced power to avoid any damage to the engine or transmission. You must now have the computer scanned for fault codes, this is done through the diagnostic connector under the dash see photo below.

2011 Holden Cruze CDX Petrol, Engine Power Is Reduced message has popped up and I would like to know whey it is happening or what it could be linked to.


Reduced engine power might be caused by a fault that needs investigating with diagnostic equipment but the condition might be linked to delayed routine maintenance and the resetting of the service interval computer when performance might be reduced to protect an unserviced engine.

Diesel. Reduce power lite turned on. Shut off engine and started back up - lite is off. Can it be driven?


Jerry, Drive to a good shop. So many things can cause reduced power light unfortunately. The first step would be to get the truck hooked up to a scanner/computer and have the computer scanned for trouble codes. One thing that you could try is to drain the water from the water separator that is mounted on the frame under drivers front door. If the PCM picks up on water, power is reduced until water is removed/drained. It could be an exhaust sensor that is reading faulty. Unfortunately from here its impossible to tell you exactly what the fault is because there are just so many engine sensor inputs that could cause your problem. Check the attached links, forums,instruction and guides, Good luck

What does the message "engine power reduced" mean on a 2011 GMC Terrain?


It means the PCM has seen a problem with your engine running and has reduced the power for your safety. You need to bring your vehicle in to someone with a scan tool to read your trouble codes so they can look in the right direction to repair the non-performing part.

There are MANY engine control malfunctions that can cause the engine control system to default to "Reduced Power Mode".

Reduced Power Mode is simply a computer strategy that was created by the vehicle manufacturers to keep people from doing dumb things like continuing to operate the vehicle with the "Check Engine" or other warning lamps YELLING at them to get their car properly diagnosed and repaired. Reduced Power Mode is also designed to protect the vehicle from further damage in certain cases.

Ignoring the warning lamps can cause safety issues as well as damage HIGH DOLLAR parts like catalytic converters, which the vehicle manufacturers are responsible for due to Federal Emissions and Safety laws.

As for whether it is covered under warranty....
Many major components of your engine control system are covered under the Federally-Mandated 8-Year 80,000 mile emissions warranty. The ONLY way to find out if your particular failure is covered is to have the vehicle first diagnosed to determine what is CAUSING the failure. Then you must check with an authorized dealer to see if the part (or parts) causing the problem are covered.
