limp home mode is a fail safe mode on Mercedes vehicles which allows you to be able to drive a reasonable distance without necessarily damaging your engine. Most of the electronically operated parts driven by the MV belt can work on manual mode. while this is not ideal for performance it is meant to allow you to get the car to safety and a service station hence the phrase "limp home"
