Engine Malfunction Help (Codes provided)

INPA Error Codes:

Name - Error Code - Kind of error
ZGM - 93B6 - 61
KOMBI - A554 - 60
MOSTGW - E18F and E18D - 20 and 20
KLIMA - 9C55 - 61

Hello everyone,
These past 2 weeks have been unfortunate for my baby and I. After some spirited driving my car started to overheat at a stop light until it threw the engine overheating drive moderately message. The temp was continuing to climb so I decided to pull over turn the car off and let her cool down. I was only ~5min from my local Indy so the goal was to drive it there.

When I turned the car back on, it seemed like it was struggling to start (Rpms jumping up/down) felt like it was about to die and then the “Engine malfunction: reduced power” message popped up. I was able to drive off and the car then ran fine (a little hot not too much) and I was able to make it to my Indy. They replaced the radiator fan as it was failing.

I go to pick up my car, drive off and maybe 1-2 minutes pass before the engine malfunction popped up engine. I tried clearing error memory on INPA which seemed to work for the increased emissions I’ve always had but my car still remains in limp mode. Using a standard OBD reader I got the codes P2526 and P2528.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
