In my area indy wanted $120 just for reading the codes, so it isn't cheap.
Than AAMCO does codes reading for free, but when I called one in the county, they wanted to see the car for few days to diagnose the problem, so I concluded they don't know how to deal with the transmission.
Call around to find best price. Than even if you go to the dealer, they usually will wash your car, some offer free coffee and WI-FI in waiting room.
Limp mode is 2nd gear what will give about 40 mph.
