Hello and Welcome -
My name is ***** ***** Im happy to help.
The LIM and LO message is telling you that the engine management system has developed a fault somewhere - and as such, the Ecu / computer , puts the car into what is called Limp home mode ( LiM and Lo(w) power output.
When this happens you need to have a garage plug in to the cars OBD port a diagnostic machine - this will collect the data needed to tell the tech exactly why this happened - and the fault can then be sorted.
A lot of smaller garages have the equipment to do this test for you - it doesn't take long and should not be costly. Its cheaper to use a smaller garage really for this than a dealer - but of course all dealers can do this for you as well if you prefer.
Im sorry I cannot tell you exactly what is wrong without the results of that test - but that is your way forward now on this one to get this sorted for you quickly and cost effectively.
Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..
