My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi Jay. Thanks for contacting us today. The problem with reduced engine power indication lights is that diagnosing the root issue can take a tremendous amount of trial and error or more importantly, detailed inspections to determine the source. The Reduced Power trigger will save Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs), which should indicate where the fault occurred. It might be best to have a professional mechanic come to your location so they can download all of the stored codes and help resolve this issue for you.
