ENGINE POWER REDUCED, NOW CAR WON'T START

2004 Chevrolet Malibu • 19,000 miles

I had the message "Engine power reduced" and the car started vibrating. I tried to start it the next day but it won't start. Please tell me what is wrong with my car. I can't really afford a costly repair.

Fly by wire system is at fault with that messgae. Usually turning the car off and re starting will re set it till you get it diaged and repaired.

It most likely needs the throttle body and pedal sensor assembly.
