Even unplugged the battery last night, this morning, limp mode (with full power).

Got annoyed and just washed my car just now cuz it looked like crap with all the salt and dirt caked on. And....lo 'n behold, LIMP MODE GONE!!! Drove it around a little and yup, it hasn't come back....
Car was telling you it was dirty man, they go in to limp dick mode when the car is dirty, no one wants a limp dick man, chicks like it nice and clean.
