Limp mode at 4k!

HI,bit gutted as last night my 159 went into limp mode after i went over 4k,however all is not lost as driving home from work tonight i ran at 3k revs for about three miles and now it revs to the redline no problem Has anyone had this before? does it sound as though its dpf/egr related?And finally will a snap on scanner reset the light or will it have to be FES? Thanks,Craig

Had this the other day on my 3-year old Ti.

RAC man said it was Cooling Fan 1 which caused it, a quick reset by him seems to have cured it -I hope!
