As the title says my fiat is going into limp mode when i try and accelerate anything faster than an old person not caring about anyone. There are no codes being detected when at o'reilys but it does have a CEL and ETC light on it also will have the ESC light on when it goes into limp mode and i have no throttle input to it. It is the only car i have and i was wondering if it is even safe to drive it.

Limp mode is a steady 2000 rpm when i have no throttle control right?

Use a different code reader (state it is a Chrysler in the settings) and pull the codes. That will tell us where to start.

Did you get this figured out? Is the RPM surging as well?
