    No lights on the dashboard?

    Mines done this twice, it goes into limp mode and wont let you rev it but my dashboard lit up like an Xmas tree. The first time it resulted in a new ECU, the second it went back to normal.

    The AA guy told me it takes the ECU 2 minutes to reset itself, maybe it had a funny turn and managed to reset while you were on the phone to your Dad.
