The reduced power light as well as the check engine light come on when the computer sees a systems fault and when this happens the computer will detect it and set and store a fault code and or codes. In order to know what is causing this problem you are going to need to start first with having the computer system scanned and the fault code and or codes retrieved. Most auto parts store like Auto Zone will do this scan for you at no charge. If you can get this done and post back with the results I will help you get this resolved.
