Default Cam Angle Sensor, Surging/Governing

Hello All,
2006 GT 49,000 miles. I went to take the wife to work this morning. The check engine light came on and the car will not go past 2500 rpm. Like the car is being governed in some type of protection mode. It just surges unless you stay under 2500 rpm. The code is "cam angle sensor A" I THINK the guy said "0380". Do you guys have any idea? Do our cars have a "limp" mode on the computer that stops the car from going past a certain RPM? Please help, if you can. I really appreciate it.

Yes they do. Get a new cam sensor from the dealer, aftermarket don't seem to last long. Two 8mm bolts and a plug is all it takes!
