Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.

There can be many reasons for limp mode, from safety issues to running problems.

What you need to do now is attach a scan tool and acquire all the data and possible codes that may be in the computer in ALL the modules.

Thanks, Ron

Expert:  rpmdiag replied 1 year ago.

Miles don't matter, something went wrong with the computer system, we just need to find out what happened.

Scan tools are a part of the diagnostic procedure that shops use to find these problems.

Thanks again and please remember to rate me 5 stars for assisting you and DO keep this link in case you need further help later on too.
