Angry My vito and it's dreaded limp mode virus

Hi I'm andy

I was away on exercise with work and when I came back and after alot of snow my 2002 vito 112 now once 3000rpm is touched in 4th gear it won't let me go over 3000rpm in any gear. On reading up on previous posts i think I've realised I've got the limp mode virus. On stopping and turning off engine and restarting the motor this seems to overide the problem aslong as the clutch pedal is not pressed down although the turbo isnt anywhere as responsive as it was and seems that little bit lazy. My drivers side light also seems to of dimmed since this problem and also my window wiper won't work on the normal setting but will on intermittent and the faster setting. I had the front brake lines replaced recently along with front pads and discs and was wondering if any of these problems could be a contributing cause to the problem any ideas or direction would be appreciated!!!

Many thanks Andy
