Mine went into limb mode tonight as I was passing another vehicle on the highway. I've never stalled it out. This is the second time its gone into limb mode since I purchased it back in 2005. The first time was when the MAF went bad.
Thanks, I try resetting the ECU. Its that simple?I have the same problem and suspect a MAF, which is on order. It goes into limp mode at least 1 time each day, so I have MASTERED the ECU reset. I can even do it while I am coasting downhill without my stopwatch!!!
Switch ignition on for 3 seconds, then pump accelerator 5 times hard,fully release the accelerator pedal,
wait 7 seconds, then push and hold accelerator down 10 seconds, then up for 10 seconds, then down for over 10 seconds ( I do 13). Then switch off and it should be reset.
I disconnected and plugged it back in but its is still running in limp mode.That happened to my 02 2.5 last month. All I did was disconnect the maf and plugged it back in, and it worked fine.
