I have never seen an EVAP system problem render a vehicle useless in limp mode. The only things I've seen initiate limp mode (fast idle only from engine) are: 1) An electronic throttle control problem, or 2) An electrical problem like low system voltage from a faulty battery or alternator.
Hello, I just experienced this problem, so I thought I would just chime in. I have a 2007 Santa Fe SE with 30,000 miles and first experienced the issue last Saturday. When attempting to start the vehicle parked in my garage, I heard a real loud crank noise in the engine and it would not stay on. I tried several times with same result. After a couple of hours, I attempted to start it again and it finally did turn on with no engine noise but MIL light came on. As it turns out, the codes showing were P2106, P1295 and P161B, yes P161B. I had my Santy towed to the dealership and they replaced a failed throttle position sensor. They said they also updated the ECU, but I believe the throttle sensor was the main problem. I have yet to test it, as I am on my way to pick it up from the dealer, but for those of you getting the same codes it is most likely a sensor problem. Thank goodness for Hyundai warranty. I hope this is the last time we have to visit the service department in a long, long time.
