Does the truck run ok? Is the check engine light on? I know that some vehicles will go into some sort of limp mode to get you home if a problem is detected.

Is it still under warranty?

Get it to the dealer, it could be a number of different things

RTFM....

Reduced engine power on the DIC is due to engine overheating.... Check the coolant first....

Did you happen to look at your temp guage when it went into that mode?

If you are signed up with Onstar they can run a diagnostic for you and tell you what is going on with the truck.

If it wasn't actually overheating there is a possible fuse that is bad.... I cannot find where I read what one yet...
