you have to get a scan to find the fault code, if your car is pre 1996 than you can do it manualy, check the faq forum on how to pullyour own fault code, if its 1996+ than you might need to find the fault through the dealer or someone who has the proper tool. either way to me it sounds like the car was in limp-home mode.
