I had to disconnect the batteries for 5 to 10 minutes the first few times this happened. It still happens occasionally but all I have to do is turn the key off and restart. Now I can do this while rolling, in neutral of course.
It is very intermittent, practically rare, but the situation when it occurs has been consistent. On hot temperature days and the truck is idling for upwards of 5 minutes then using reverse. Such as idling in front of a store then backing out onto the road for example.
Unfortunately I do not enough to explain why this happens or why I had to disconnect the batts the first few times (all in the same drive) and now I can just cycle the engine off/on to clear it.
I have never heard or read about having to take it to a dealer to clear limp mode, but I am certainly not an expert and this would not surprise me. I seem to recall that other conditions may cause the rpm limit situation. Let us know if disconnecting the batts clears to condition or if we need to look for a different solution.
