    Just to help anyone in the future - The old fella i work with was having a similar issue with his VZ LS1 Monaro done (400 thous Ks unopen engine)

    He drives roughly an hour and half 1 way to and from work. Some days on his travel he would have to pull over up to 4 times, as the car went into a limp mode and wouldn't go past 60 or 80ks (cant remember the exact figure) he would have to pull over, switch it off, wait a couple seconds and then start it. some days he could get a straight run in, he said it happen to his wife 11 times in one run.

    No one could figure out what the issue was incl holden, i told him to take it to the bloke whose done all the work on my car (Electronic Automotive in Epping) He had a look over everything, ordered him a new throttle body (which has the TPS mounted to the side) and fitted it up. been over a week now and hes happy to say it hasn't done it once.

    hope this helps anyone pulling their hair out

    Safety mode is generally either throttle body or accelerator pedal.
