Battery not charging/ service brake booster is on after getting off work


Do a diagnostic test to find out what codes come up. Once the repairs are made to clear the codes, you shouldn't have any more check engine lights cycling.

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.

On my 2010 Silverado the message center says engine power reduced, service stabilitrack and service traction control system. What would cause these messages. It started after sitting for a few days


The fault codes have nothing to do with it sitting for a few days. There are sensors that work with your ABS brakes and TCS to help your car maintain control when corning briskly under load. You probably have a bad sensor on one of the wheels. Recommend you get the Haynes manual to see exactly how to test and replace them. A multimeter will help too.

What causes the "Reduced Engine Power", "Service Stability Control" and "Traction Control" warning lights to come on?


the "Reduced Engine Power", problem causes the PCM to disable "Service Stability Control" and "Traction Control" turning on the warning lights to come on for those systems . The reduced engine power is because of a problem with the electronic throttle control system or as GM calls it TAC system . Reduced Engine Power Mode
When the PCM detects a condition with the TAC system, the PCM may enter a reduced engine power mode. Reduced engine power may cause one or more of the following conditions:
• Acceleration limiting--The PCM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however, the vehicle acceleration is limited.
• Limited throttle mode--The PCM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however, the maximum throttle opening is limited.
• Throttle default mode--The PCM will turn OFF the throttle actuator motor and the throttle will return to the spring loaded default position.
• Forced idle mode--The PCM will perform the following actions:
- Limit engine speed to idle by positioning the TP, or by controlling the fuel and spark if the throttle is turned OFF.
- Ignore the accelerator pedal input.
• Engine shutdown mode--The PCM will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.

Code drive 5 . My 2004 trailblazer posted a code "drive 5". It showed the "reduced engine poweer" light, and would not respond to the accelerator pedal. I had been driving in slow traffic. I pulled over,...


Thottle body sensor, accelerator pedal sensor, restricted air flow...will all trigger this fault light. Go to your local Autozone, they will run an OBD scan for free, and explain the fault codes to you so the correct repairs can be made.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

Reduced power light came on


reduced power messge is not caused by oil pressure. i assume this a 3.0L v6. this engine has a electronic throttle body which is a electric motor that operates the throttle plate that takes the place of a throttle cable. in cold weather the pcv (positive crankcase venelation) system accumulates moisture that will form on the throttle plate, in cold weather the water freezes and causes throttle plate to stick. when the ecm detects any malfunction whithin the throttle control circuit it is put in to reduced power mode that limits throttle position. usually resets after ign. is cycled. there is a service bullitin to re-position pcv hose behind throttle plate to reduce moisture bulid-up on throttle plate. your saturn dealer can perform this service.

Service Throttle Control


It sounds like these things are all related. When the a computer sees a problem in the Electronic throttle system, it will dissable traction control, and give the reduced engine power alert because the powertrain computer does not know the value of throttle postion.
Codes will need to be scanned in the computersto begin diagnosis.

i have a 2000 s60 2.0t and got the software update due to the recall. it apparently was some kind of safety measure when a fault of some kind occurred but it nearly got someone killed while overtaking and thats why the recall happened. sounds like the same issue but i could be wrong.
