Q: Reduced power in car

asked by on

My car gave a code that there is reduced power.

The reduced power warning generally indicates the failure of an electrical component vital to engine operation. These warnings can trigger fault codes that can be scanned and read by trained technicians. Typically, a throttle position sensor or engine component sensor may cause this concern. Consider having one of our expert mechanics, here at YourMechanic, come out for a diagnostic inspection of your loss of power. Avoid an unsafe situation, as our mechanics come to you.
