That's the cars equivalent of passing out. You wouldn't grab a human being and force them to keep walking after repeatedly passing out would you? Take the car to a shop and get the problem diagnosed. Limp mode is the engine computer's attempt to prevent damage to a motor due to a mechanical failure, most likely timing related.
