In order to get it out of limp mode, you need to fix the problem. The only way to "reset" the ECM, which is really just erasing the self-learning memory, is to disconnect the battery cable for several minutes or, if it's a 5-mode ECM with a mode screw (as opposed to a 2-mode with a toggle switch), cycle though all 5 modes until you come back to mode 1.
