ok let me know

usually with reduced power message there is an issue with the throttle body or gas pedal that the computer saw a bad reading and puts the truck into reduced power

this is usually cause by a bad connection at the throttle body or the gas pedal or a bad throttle body or gas pedal assembly

some times this is a glitch where if you start it back up or disconnect the battery cables for 5 minutes it will be ok enough to drive it back and then go into the shop
