Just to add. Limp mode is a safe mode so you can drive when there is an internal fault in the trans. A lot of times, it will code and give us a hint of the issue. This trans is known for solenoid packs failing and governor issues from metal contamination.
This is why you need someone with a scan tool to look at the readings to determine which direction to go in. When we are here and cannot touch or feel the car, it is difficult to give accurate info on the system
in short, try changing the fluid and filter and look for metal in the pan
