SOURCE: limp home mode

You need to scan for engine trouble codes. Most parts stores will do this for free, and tell you what they mean and make recommendations on what to do. The 'limp mode' kicks in to prevent damage to the vehicle when the computer gets data that something is wrong.. When you shut it off, it's temporarily reset, but then the cars computer is signaling there is still a problem, and it goes back into limp mode. If you have any questions after getting the codes 'read' , post questions and code #;s here for help. Good luck.

I have a 2002 chevy tahoe 4X4 with a 5.3L that has set a P1258 code engine over temp, it has also set a P0117 ect low input code, and a P1637 L terminal circuit, P1638 F terminal circuit codes.


If these codes are being only set during start I would expect a failure of the battery. If the voltage goes much below 9 VDC the computers (EMS) can become erratic and codes and limp home modes are a common result of defective and discharged batteries!



Careful having the battery tested. Any arcing etc at the battery can be the kiss of death for the engine computer. Better to remove terminal to check. Or test the crank voltage with multi-meter.

We have a 2006 Ford f250 super duty powerstroke F4X4 and the wrench symbol came on while driving, when turned off it went off, started driving toward home and it came back on again. What does this me


Sounds like 2 separate problems. The wrench light signifies that the truck goes into" limp home" mode and that there is a problem with your electronic speed control. As far as the truck pulling; is it doing it just driving without using the brakes? It could mean that you may need an alignment, tire rotation , low tire pressures or all of the above. Good luck to you

I have a 2008 F-350 SD Diesel P/U I just had the transmission reprogrammed as per the recall. Now the reduced engine power (limp home mode) keeps coming on. Could this be relaited. What can I check, or...


Hello, Go back to the Dealer. The programming is not working for your truck the way it is set up. The Dealer needs to test the temperature of the Protocols for the limp home mode. Your truck is either running hotter than it should with the new Recall programming or the "limp home" feature needs new values to de-sensitize it.

I pressure washed my f-250 today including the engine to remove salt and dirt from plowing and shortly after it went into limp mode and subsequently stalled and will not start, I have a heater running...


you have a wet coil pack possibly. use hair dryer to dry the engine coil pack. if you're not familiar with coil packs, they replaced the old type distributors. water has built up in coil pack or you've blown off a spark plug wire from coil pack while pressure washing engine.
