Is the vehicle's Check Engine Light on? It should briefly light up when you turn the key on (before you start the engine) to show that the light is working correctly. Based on what I've read I believe you should have one or more trouble codes. A place like AutoZone will read the trouble codes for you for free, and you can look them up here - http://www.engine-light-help.com/generic-check-engine-light-codes.html

try checking your transmission control module for burn't resistors or capacitors also try clearing your tcm by pulling the negative side of your battery off for bout 10 minutes and look for any fuses related to the tcm or ecm in your owners manual

When this happens, usually you have to replace the Computer. There is a chance you just didn't reset it when you took to cables off. Remove them and tape or hold them together for 5minutes or longer. If it still does it, I would get a book and find out where the code is to lead you. With the obd it only gives you a starting point in the diagnosics. You may have air in your lines that need bled, a sensor out, or just plain adjustment of the cables. But it shouldn't go into limp home mode unless you lost your Engine Control Monitor. Oh, I didn't click the read more button. Check the E-brake cables. You may have run over something that hooked it and ripped it loose. The Jags can tell if the cable is too far out of adjustment. It's under the car, cable should go through the floor and run to the rear of the car and Y out to the rear wheels. Good luck.

THE COMPUTER WILL STORE A CODE WHEN THE LIGHT COMES ON.THE CODE WILL STILL BE THE WHEN THE LIGHT IS OFF.ANY PARTS STORE SHOULD BE ABLE TO READ THE CODES.
