Reduced power reduced traction message car won't start now


Bo't my daughter a 2008 wrecked G6. Repaired and drove it a month. One day she drove it and a message came up on the display "Reduced Traction" and then "Reduced Engine Power". The motor shifted down and when we parked the car it would not restart.

It sounds like the battery is dead (the clicking sound) but the sound comes out of the trunk near the gas tank (the clicking sound is the fuel pump relay). I bought a brand new battery but it made no difference.

Any experience with this anyone?
