Took the gt350 out today and stopped at my brothers house. When I started the car and left the car felt like I was driving the parking brake on. When I got home checked the manual and the car was in limp mode...yellow wrench light with no codes. Has this happened to anyone else? Since it is Sunday I will not be able to call the dealer until tomorrow. Any one have experience with this and the cause and fix.

Could be a thousand different things. The car doesnt go into limp mide without throwing a code...mine did it a few times...a cam sensor fault once, and a vacuum leak that was throwing misfire codes...

Had it happened on my F-250. It was the thermostat. Goes into this mode to not heat up the engine. That was my deal. Replaced the thermostat and no more issues.

pull over and turn car off... wait a couple mins then start it back up as it resets itself. Sometimes its just a glitch with no issues

Had the same thing happen today in the GT. Shut it down and restarted it and it cleared itself. Maybe the heat??

Do you have an Automatic or Manual because so far its only happening to the Automatics. Too much power at once and computer can't decide how to shift it so bam goes into limp mode as is only thing I can think of
