Randall C........I bought a 2003 lincoln LS from 90 yr old neighbor w/20,000 miles on it. Every time i drive it, when I accelerate beyond a certain point too quickly, the car goes into limp mode. We replaced the throttle body, gas pedal assembly, swapped the battery and so good. Someone told me the car might have learned a new program from the way the old man drove it so slowly. If I turn it off ,it resets and the car runs fine again till I try to accelerate too quickly. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hi. The computer will not learn a new program and cause limp mode. A failure with the transmission or an ignition coil can cause limp mode. And the throttle body or accelerator pedal. Which you have already replaced. When the car is in limp mode, have you had the codes checked in the computer?
