The reduced engine power symbol is on but with no arrow.

Customer Question
The reduced engine power...

The reduced engine power symbol is on but with no arrow. Have not experienced any change in engine performance since I noticed it today. What does this usually indicate?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

Approximately 90,000 miles. It is an automatic.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '90 GMC?

La Crosse CXL

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Have not tried anything yet. Just noticed the light today.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

If it is something I can fix I would certainly entertain the idea of doing myself.

This usually means the throttle body assembly has failed or pedal assembly but you will need to start by having diagnostic codes checked which can be done at your local parts store for free. With codes I can tell you possible/common problems, testing/repair instructions, and costs. Let me know if you have more questions or when you are able to get codes checked, thanks.
