I had my truck's ecm reprogrammed last Friday (1/17) due to recall #14v007, and earlier this evening (1/24) the check engine light came in and the dic showed an "engine power is reduced" message. The engine ran very sluggish and I parked it as gm recommended to do in their recall letter. This is the second time this has happened now. I thought that the new software was supposed to correct that issue?.
