So I figured this out the other day and it has saved me bringing my VIDA laptop and DICE everywhere and thought I would share it in case others didn't know.

I learned that if you are dealing with the "reduced engine performance" limp mode from a throttle body issue, a cheap scanner will clear it, even if there is no check engine light on. I realized this when I was in limp mode from a throttle body issue and my buddy scanned my car, showing no code stored (on a cheap scanner), but then he cleared the codes anyway and my car instantly went out of limp mode. Something to think about as it takes a while for VIDA to boot up for me and I don't want to carry my laptop everywhere I go. I have fixed my TB, but looks like I need a new connector (write up here), but its nice to keep a cheap scanner in the glove box so I don't have to sit and wait for the limp mode to clear on its own.

This is the scanner I use that works great: ANCEL AD410 Enhanced OBD II Scanner
