limp mode

Post by keithd2959 »

Hi there!

Can anyone please explain when Honda 2006 model F20C engine goes to 'limp / safe mode' , what is the error code generated to report this condition? (using Hondata Flashpro V1.8.2 firmware 64)

What is the exact problem that you're experiencing?

Limp mode or recovery mode? Recovery mode is when the ECU does not flash correctly. There's two different types of limp mode, one where the backup processor kicks in so you get a MIL but no codes, and the more common rev limiter when a major sensor is bad or similar (eg MAP, crank angle etc). In that case you get an error code.
