It is most likely the Throttle Position Sensor has gone bad. But if the check engine light is on, the only way to tell exact problem, is to have a scanner placed on the vehicle to have the codes read.

Reduced power and service stabilitrack on my 2007 equinox.

The reduced power light is most likely responsible for the stabilitrack light to illuminate as it will shut it down as a safety feature. The reduced engine power light is normally set by a defective throttle control motor. In some cases, the sensor on the gas pedal can also cause this message to display, but, in my experience, the throttle control motor is most likely the problem.

What is etc when rduce engine power

ETC is Electronic Traction Control. This is a computer function that senses slipping wheels and reduces the engine power to the wheels that are slipping . Please go to an autoparts store and have them read the codes for free to get an idea of what may be causing this issue. IT may be a wheel sensor that is bad.
