Service Stabilitrak-Reduced Engine Power

I have a 2007 Equinox. For the past 2 weeks the engine light is on as well as "Service Stabilitrak-Reduced engine power". When I step on the accelerator, the car takes a while to get to a decent speed. It almost feels like it its in neutral. What could it be?

The engine light is a generic fault indicator in your car to point out something is not quite right with the engine, having a loss of power as well is also known in some areas as Limp Mode or Safety Mode. it means the car is restricting the power it gives to ensure no damage it done to the engine.

the only certain way to find out what is wrong is to take it to a garage that has diagnostics equipment that can read the fault codes from the vechicles ECU (the fault codes will be the reason the light on the dash has come on as its reporting a fault somewhere)..

your mechanic should be able to tell you what is wrong with the engine from that and give you a more accurate cost at fixing it.

Reduced power and service stabilitrack on my 2007 equinox.


The reduced power light is most likely responsible for the stabilitrack light to illuminate as it will shut it down as a safety feature. The reduced engine power light is normally set by a defective throttle control motor. In some cases, the sensor on the gas pedal can also cause this message to display, but, in my experience, the throttle control motor is most likely the problem.

Service stabilitrak and reduce engine power on my 2012 chevy equinox and suggestions on what it could be also had a bunch of codes for timing position and I replaced all timing components


The reduced engine power light is most likely setting the stabilitrack light to come on. The reduced engine power light is normally set when the computer senses an issue with the throttle actuator assembly. This actuator assembly needs a corolation signal from the gas pedal sensor to operate properly. In my opinion and experience in the automotive repair industry, the throttle actuator assembly is more prone to failure than the gas pedal sensor.

Since all three systems work together, when the engine light is on the other two can be also.
I would start with checking the engine computer for trouble codes.
