Disable "limp home" mode

Can someone PLEASE tell me how to disable the "limp home" mode on my 328i automatic transmission? I know it needs a new tranny, however, I want to cook this old tranny first to get the most outta it. It goes into limp home mode after 15 minutes of driving and it's been doing it for over a year. Mechanics tell me the tranny is going, but it's not gone after 1 year and I would like to push it as long as possible. Something I can unplug while I kill this tranny??? Thanks all!
