I went to pickup my ebxr8 from the dyno shop but before i paid the guy i wanted to test drive the car first,the car went into limp home mode stuck in 3rd gear,so i turned the car off and restated still no good,tried this a few times then took it back,they rang me the next day and said its showing a fault code but they can't clear it,i told them to disconnect the battery for 1/2 hr or so,they've just rang me and it wouldn't clear and they have no idea what to do next,
any got any ideas how to clear the codes??

Sometimes after you clear a code or codes they pop back up straight awaywhich means you have to fix the problem and then clear the code.Any idea what the code was?
