Where I live many of the auto parts store will read the code for free. You need to go have the code read and ask them for all the codes. The traction control is probably on due to the code which set off your check engine light. When I last had the problem the code was for engine air or vacuum leak. Which I ended up changing the throttle body but other sensor could be the problem. You really need the code to help narrow the search.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: my 2002 impala's service traction control light

Traction control only works when one wheel is spinning faster than the other it trys to even them out so it wont spin...sometimes if one of the wheels come off the ground in an uneven area or if you take a turn too fast and one wheel turns when the other one dont it is designed to operate.
I would remove all wheels and check the braking system...Is it 4 wheel disc or rear drum ?
If it has rear drums you could have a wheel cylinder leak that will sometimes lock the wheel because of fluid contamination....This would cause both lights to come on...If you find no problems
sometimes the abs sensor builds up fragments on the magnet and makes the light come on...
or if the abs sensor is not close enough to the exciter ring it will make the light come on because it will be out of adjustment.....all you do is press the sensor inward until it barely touches the ring and it will adjust itself....You can sometimes clean the magnet if it is contaminated and make the light go off ( only after you reach 6 to 15 mph. it will go off ).If it dont go off you have to buy a sensor.
Also make sure all tires have same amount and plenty of air to keep vehicle in balance/level.

that light is set to come on at scheduled maintenance points or mileage,and even a bad abs sensor can set it off,look in the owners manual on how to reset it,it doesn't mean there's a problem with it though,i forget how its done but there's a procedure on resetting it,it may go off on it own also,so don't panic its not going to be an expensive thing to repair,read the owners manual real good on it ,it will explain why it came on,good luck with it.

SOURCE: 2009 Impala won't start. First message

turn on your car and remove the ground cable from the battery, if the car dies it's time for a new alternator, if not take your battery in to be checked. The other message(traction control) may be just due to a faulty battery/alternator.

Service traction control and stability warning come on occasionally followed by reduced engine power


When I had this problem it was due to a problem with the Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor. They are really easy to replace as seen in this video:

2006 chevy impala traction control


Reduced power is a problem with electronic throttle contol . drive by wire . Do you know what this is ? Taking the vehicle an having it hooked up to diagnostic tool an checking for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes is always a first step when trying to find the root cause of any trouble light ! And not auto zone , pep boys , or advance auto parts . Thier diagnostic tool will not check codes in all system control modules .

Engine power is reduced keeps showing on the dash screen, as does service traction control. the car is running rough and has no power when this occurs.


how do you fix the "reduced engine power" light on the dash bard of a 07 Chevy Impala LTZ and "Service Traction Control"?
