It's going into LIMP MOD, this stops damage to the engine, your car needs to go on a reader to find out what code/codes are in the ECU, driving your car can cause more damage, get it checked ASAP.

Hi, there must be a Fault with in the ECU, have you looked at changing this, the other move is when the spanner light comes on and goes into limp mode, don't switch off and start, get the car to a garage or someone who can read the codes whilst in Limp mode, the option is an ECU change.
