Mr Gutz is right. Similar to the 1000 SDI, which all your sleds were built on, it tunes down the engine to keep the temps from climbing any further.
The following is when things have gotten out of hand.
Engine speed is limited to 5,500 RPM and RAVE valves are kept closed:
AKA Limp Home Mode
- ECM overheat 85C (185F)
- Engine overheat 100C (212F)
- Muffler overheat 800C (1,472F)
- Oil injection pump wiring shorted to ground or open circuit
- Low voltage in the high voltage DC system. Voltage dropped by 5 V.
- High engine detonation
