You DO understand this this is one of the TWO possible failures when a fault occurs affecting engine fuel management, right?

If a fault causes rich running, all you get is a CEL. But if a fault may result in dangerously lean AFRs, the DME automactically protects the motor by running in the 'reduced power mode'.

To YOU, you think "ah ha, its that ONE failure- now happening across all these cars"

It reminds me of how prehistoric tribes would try to attribute cause and effect by what they could see....deamons, spirits, etc.
