On my way home yesterday, my 2005 Chevy Trailblazer LT, suddenly lost power, and a

arrow in it. What does this light indicate?

Reduced engine power light. The light is displayed when a noticeable reduction in your vehicles performance may occur. The vehicle may be driven at a reduced speed when reduced engine power light is on but acceleration and speed may be reduced. The performance may be reduced until the next time you drive your vehicle. If the light stays on see your dealer as soon as possible for diagnosis and repair. This light may also come on if there is a problem with the electronic throttle control (ETC) system. If this happens take your vehicle in for service as soon as possible. This info was found on page 3-48 of your owners manual. Hope it helps.

Thank you! Yes,I was able to drive it home(fortunately, not far) but it would not go much more than 30mph, acceleration was extremely slow and sluggish just to go that fast! So ETC makes sense. I can not locate my owner's manual, now that I need it(of course). Thanks again!
