Check ALL your battery connections are spotless and connected.
My eb had the same fault...sudden limp mode with no warning. Replaced all battery connectors andit fixed it.
Which is what I will need to do with my EB! Whenever I put the high-beams on, it goes into LHM. This has been happening for about a week now, and I've traced it back to putting on the high beams :( So I drive with low beams at night for now... I'm just waiting for my mechanic to get back from his fishing trip, the bugger.
Quick hint for limp-home-mode fixage when it does it on the road:
1) Find a straight piece of the road with no traffic
2) Put into N
3) Turn off car
4) Turn on car
5) Rev to about 1500rpm
6) Put into D
That's what'd fix mine... until I put the damn high beams on again
