Reduced Engine Power Light

Reduced Engine Power LightThis is a Reduced Engine Power Light symbol. Only a handful of manufacturers use this light, which comes on automatically with a reduction in the vehicle’s performance. Given what is likely an obvious reduction in power, the symbol itself becomes redundant.

However, the fault is likely in an electronic system, and…


…one vehicle maker suggests stopping the vehicle and restarting it after 10 seconds. This may reset the system and thus resolve the issue. If this does not work, see your dealer or authorized service center as soon as possible.

The light, in essence an engine seen from the side, is the same as the check engine light with a down pointing arrow to indicate that the power is reduced.
