Welcome to the BB. I am not aware that either computer (there are two - the one behind the seat is the fuel injection computer, the ignition computer is behind the right side panel) has any sort of 'limp home mode'. They do have a basic fuel/ignition map that they will use if the inputs are not valid - perhaps that is what he means? And, switching off the ignition should have the same effect as unplugging the wire harness connector.

Let's clarify some terms. When you say 'it won't crank' do you mean the starter motor turns the crankshaft but the engine won't start? Or do you mean you turn the key to the start position and nothing happens - the starter does not operate & the crankshaft does not turn?
