You have to find what is causing it to be in limp mode ! Have the vehicle checked for DTC's - diagnostic trouble codes . Do diagnostic's , fix what the problem is , sensor , wiring , a control module , then the light will go out .

you have to disconnect the negative side of the battery so you won't kill it then remove the door panel look for hidden screws behind the arm rest and behind what looks like little doors that you have to use a screw driver to open once that is removed you will find a plastic sheet just cut and peel this back (you can use duct tape to replace it when you are done) also put on gloves because inside the doors there is sharp edges, you then can see the motor and you will need to break off the rivets but you can put the new one on with just a small bolt and nut and use lock tight

This procedure is wayyyy to long to list on here. Your better off going to your local auto parts store and buying a repair manual for your car. It will have both detailed procedures for fixing both of your items. You can also goto the library and get the factory service manual for free. Good luck to you and thanks for using fixya!

Sincerely,

SOURCE: 2002 Ford Focus alternator replacement

I just did this for a friend this morning. Sounds scary bot it is easy.
1) remove P.S. fluid filler and pin it aside
2) remove radiator overflow canister and pin it aside
3) unplug wiring harnesses right over the alternator (back right of the engine compartment)
4) The scary part - remove the 3 engine mount bolts on that sode of the car
5) from the transmission jack up the engine just enough to tilt it forward slightly
6) it takes 2, tilt the engine forward and lift out the alt - you should have removed the belt at this time.,
7) take the sole (red) wire off of the alt.
8) finish in reverse order

What do u mean limp mode on a Ford falcon and How To reset It


Limp mode is a setting which is made by the Engine Control Module that limits the vehicle performance to protect itself. You need to take it to a garage, they will put a code reader on it and tell you what sensor is reporting a fault and what the fix is. Resetting the computer without fixing the underlying problem can be catastrophic to the engine.

Now, having written all of the above, this is an old vehicle, so codes and ECMs do NOT apply.

Have a read of this

Hi,

Limp mode is repairable and for not as much as you think. http://www.dieselturbocleaner.co.uk/ cures limp mode. You will need a reasonable level of competence to perform the treatment yourself (your local garage may do the treatment for you) but there are step by step instructions on the website and a support team to contact if you wish. Hope this helps

Front wheel alignment


you need to let an alignment shop handle it. The vehicle has to be perfectly level front to rear and side to side, if this is not correct the alignment will not be accurate.

2002 Impala: transmission limp mode...


Most transmissions have a limp mode, or limp-home mode.
If the driveline computer thinks there is something wrong, it can lock the transmission into one gear, such as 2nd gear. Usually reverse will also be available. The Impala automatic has 4 speeds. 2nd speed or gear will get you home, but the engine rpms can get a little high. I wouldn't get on the expressway will in limp mode.
Before taking to the shop, you might want to try and reset limp mode by turning the car off for a couple minutes, or you may have to disconnect and reconnect the battery.

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.
