Default Limp mode won't go over 3000 rpm?

My cousin bought a 1990 Honda accord with a 2.2l engine. We didn't realize it was in limp mode til we got on the highway. anyways we replaced the distributor which was showing up as the code. Reset the computer and now there is a 14 code (intake control valve) showing up. I'm wondering why the light never went out. Even before I started the car. Anyways I know why it's in limp mode, it's to protect the integrity of the doesn't rev past 3000 rpm. I'm just wondering if there might be a magical code that's gonna pop out of nowhere. Or if there is anything else that could cause a code 14 that makes the computer think this? Any input is welcome like any similar situations. Also if I replace the part will I need to reset the computer to get it out of limp mode or is there anything I could do to get it out?

Sorry if I made this confusing

Kinda confusing but idle air control valve will be throwing a code (code 14, specifically)

or maybe... Code 14: Linear solenoid open or shorted.

Once its replaced you should be good I don't really think you have to reset it maybe just disconnect your battery for 10 seconds and then turn on.
