Limp mode is your cars way of saying "I'm not going to let you go faster because I think there is something wrong with the engine/transmission. In my experience, the trans connector was leaking (it's what controls the shifting), its very common but expensive to fix.

In my experience, the trans connector was leaking on the wires and needed to be replaced. (its what shifts the car down which explains the rev. Its very common but expensive in some cases.
