Question about 2005 Ford Freestyle

Enigine fail safe mode

My 2006 Expedition Limited has stalled twice and went into engine fail safe mode. I am trying to figure out what is causing this and what can i do to fix it. I have the same situation with 2005 Ford Freestyle (now Tarus X). Failsafe indicator comes on and engine runs limp, after restart the light is gone and the engine is fine. The car's build in system check indicated that all systems were OK.

    I just picked my 2005 Ford Freestyle up from the ford dealership today, from having the Throlle body replaced. Not even 20 miles later, it stalls out, fails safe engine mode comes on, and a wrench. No codes what could it be?

Sounds to me like the mass airflow meter, cutting in and out. When faulty it can completely shut a car off, and also ingauge limp mode. I hope this helps. Let me know how you get on.

This problem is due to a bad throttle body ford seems to be having a problem with this and will due nothing about it. Also i tried to order one and now ford has all throttle bodies on hold because the company making the replacement part is tooling them wrong.

What does it mean when my car goes into engine fail safe mode?


It mean that the PCM received a bad reading from one of the sensors
most common fix would be
Either a bad flash in the PCM or a bad PCM or a bad TPS
go to the dealer and have them fix it
only the dealer can flash your PCM
also have them check the throttle body
and be cairful when they get that code they have a tendency to just stall out

2006 Ford Expedition starts for about 2 seconds then shuts off


thats strange....it sounds like total fail management mode.... try reseting it by disconnecting the battery for 5 mins , and retry ... one problem known is the starter pig-tail per TSB - 06-19-14 but thats for a NO-START.... check for basic fuel and ign. ...this will be hard due to diag requires a scanner.... all else fails you'll have to go to the dealer/shop for further diag.... hope this helps... or get back to me for what you tried and the outcome......GL

Enigine fail safe mode


I encountered the same problem, my engine fail safe mode light came on and shut the car down. I took my car to my mechanic and he found the solution to the problem. The car needed a throttle body cleaning and the fuel filter needed to be replaced. After having my truck serviced my mileage increased from 14.6 mpg to 15.4 mpg
