Hi,

I need some help! My car is stuck in limp home mode, currently has coolant temperature sensor, idle speed control code fault codes. I can't seem to find the problem, have changed the coolant temp. sensor to no avail. Have cleaned the throttle body, it is running a bit better but still in limp home (stuck in 3rd gear). Appreciate any thoughts or ideas on tackling this..cheers Andy

Any symptoms before it went into limp mod like no throotle response and poor acceleration, does it start and run fine till car warms up if left to sit and cool off

Maybe its the gearbox temp sensor that has died?
