for an unknown reason my 2018 34hp horizon technology is going into safe/limp mode on the initial start-up

Its done it 2x now. always the first start of the day. it seems to be able to clear by the time I get to the next lawn, after using a different mower.

what can cause these motors to go into safe mode? wondering if anyone else has experienced this?
