The Reduced Engine Power message alerts the driver that the Control Module has detected a fault in the Throttle Actuator Control system. The control module limits engine power when this mode is Active. Your computer will need to be scanned for codes and then diagnosed and fixed accordingly. My experience has been a bad throttle body or a bad sensor or some sort causing this issue.

how much will this cost if i bring my car to a shop?
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 4 years ago.
IT all depends on what is wrong and the shops labor rate..

It is usually about 70 to 90 bucks for a good technician to get in there and take a look to see what is going on.
