Question about BMW Mini
Check the ABS brake sensors in your wheels, if they are not functioning properly. It will trigger the computer to engage the ASC auto stability control light as the asc uses the brakes to assist in control. I will also engage the EML engine management light to slow the rev point to limp mode

Sometimes you can reset the engine warning light by disconnecting the battery for ten minutes or more (be sure you have your stereo unlock code if needed).
That is not a good solution, it is better to diagnose and eventually fix the problem.
Have the car computer scanned with a code reader, the codes you get in return witll tell you exactly where to find the problem.
Here is the code list.
To get the codes the code reader must be connected to the car computer.
sometimes on Bmw you may need a Interface 16 pin Adapter, depending on the code reader.
Here is a home user code reader : PocketScan™ OBD II Code Reader (AXRCP9125 ...
Here is a good scaner.
Always better having the job done at a qualified garage.

SOURCE: Eml and diagnostic problems
As for the limp mode unless you have an expensive diagnostic system this usually has to be done by BMW (anything to get ya to a dealership!!). The comms problem, is the key turned in the ignition?
