Default 2002 RSX type-S V-tech problem?

I was driving down the fwy on saturday when my acura gave a tug ultimately causing it to slow down. I popped it into neutral and was rolling. When I popped back into 6th gear the check engine went on and my RPM would not go higher than 4000( I had it modified for the v-tech to kick in that early ) What could be wrong? Is it the V-tech sylonoid? After giving the car a rest for about half an hour I test drove it. The v-tech was working fine but the check engine light was still on.What's going on?!?

The ECU received a signal and put the car into limp home mode. Get the car diagnosed to find out the fault code that caused it.
