Well "limp home mode" is basically the same o any car operated with a computer. It is a special mode in witch the engine and sometimes the transmission is put into when a serious problem arises. The engine reduces power out put and rpms in order to saves the engine from receiving any more damage.

Most new vehicles do not have the traditional cable accelerator to throttle system. Instead, when you step on the accelerator, a signal is sent to a computer that regulates how much gas is sent to the engine. When any part of this system fails, the vehicle goes into "limp home" mode, only allowing the vehicle to go very slowly.
