My 05 went into limp mode a couple months ago. I had nothing but factory gauges at the time and they showed nothing wrong. Took truck into shop and my oil was running 30 degrees hotter then my coolant so they said I needed to have my oil cooler replaced. Then I choose to have a EGR delete installed while it was tore down. Not sure if that's your problem but that's my story.

Well i have never had the problem so this is just my thought. It goes into a limp mod to keep it from self destruct, like going into an idle mod and no power, running to hot ECT-EOT trans, no boost bad turbo just a few and if you have tunes (Hypertech Max Energy Stage 3) this may be part of it, i have no idea what it is but the 6.0 is already max out on HP and when you add more you better have deep pockets for, ARP studs,HG, and a lot more. Mine has all the power i need so i did mods to try and not have a problem by adding gauges to keep an eye on things and add a oil by-pass to keep the injectors clean, coolent filter to keep the oil cooler clean. I may be all wrong but i'm to old to change. You need to go to a dealer or shop to get rid of it.
