What Does Engine Power Reduced Mean on My Chevy Equinox?

2022 Chevrolet Equinox Parked Outside Building

In most cases, your Chevy Equinox is running as it should in East Hills. However, you might run into a scenario where you see an exclamation point on the dash as well as “Engine Power Reduced.” There’s a couple things that could be causing this, but in all cases, it means you should schedule service at Major World Chevrolet because we’ll get those things fixed for you. 



What Does My Chevy Equinox Saying “Engine Power Reduced” Mean?

If you see this phrase appear on your car’s driver information center, there are a few possible culprits. You’ll go into “limp mode,” which means you won’t accelerate as fast and you won’t get peak performance out of your Equinox. Most likely, you need a clean throttle body, which requires expert attention.

If you’ve got access to an OBDII reader, plug it into the car’s port by the steering wheel on the door side (on most models) and see what it says. In any case, scheduling service with the team at Major World Chevrolet is the best choice. We’ll ensure that you get your throttle body fixed and you yourself get back on the road.
