SOURCE: 1994. MBz, s600. v-12. ASR. dashboard light.

The ASR (acceleration slip regulation) light is for the ETA (electronic throttle actuator) it is a mysterious beast that controls throttle placement. I would say that you have one of two problems. Either the interior insulation of the wiring of the ETA is is crumbling or the wiring harness is disintegrating. Either fix isn't cheap although if I had to pick one I'd pick the wiring harness. It's about a third of an ETA. In short check he wiring to the ETA, look for damage or water intrusion, if nothing is found you will have to replace the ETA control.
READ THIS POST FROM A M-BENZ FORUM MEMBER ON ASR ISSUE
For two years I lived with the the ASR light coming on shortly after starting the car and had to either continue driving it in the limp home mode, or stop the car to restart it to regain normal engine operation with the ASR light out. Finally, it got so bad I simply took a chance, after discussing the problem with a reputable local indie, and bought a rebuilt ETA from Potomac German Auto and put it in. The part had a one year warranty with it and was about half the cost of a new unit from MB. There are other companies out there that rebuild these units as well. At any rate the ASR problem went away. To give you a reference point, my car had about 156,000 miles on it when I did this repair. That may or may not be significant to your situation, and I probably should have corrected this problem well before I did, but I didn't.

SOURCE: limp home mode

You need to scan for engine trouble codes. Most parts stores will do this for free, and tell you what they mean and make recommendations on what to do. The 'limp mode' kicks in to prevent damage to the vehicle when the computer gets data that something is wrong.. When you shut it off, it's temporarily reset, but then the cars computer is signaling there is still a problem, and it goes back into limp mode. If you have any questions after getting the codes 'read' , post questions and code #;s here for help. Good luck.

SOURCE: xr6 going into limp home mode when car is turned

theres a solenoid that selects gears it can trick the gearbox into limp mode, id have that checked before spending big money i spent 6000 on a new gearbox (not standard price i had a heavily modified gearbox) because the standard gearbox did the same turns out it was an $80 solenoid, i found out after forking out the money. any ford dealer should be able to plug it in and run diagnostic checks for you

Need fuse diagram for ba?


Howdy howdy John Mullins,

Thanks for adding the 2003 CLUE... that verified what I was suspecting: I am guessing the "BA" FORD nomenclature is pretty obscure ... I had to LOOK that part up... also "Utes"... Cute!

Now I am understanding "BA" to be a series of "Falcon" Fords
indigenous to DOWN UNDER typically between 2002 and 2005
(or 2003 to 2008... else where on the internet).

Being a life long FORD owner... I can tell you for certain FORD Factory manuals were/are available from the dealers... Being old fashioned... I like the hard copies (and have too many cars not to be self reliant)... and they all have the wiring diagrams, circuit drawings... schematics FOR SURE (Volume 3 of 3 on my '04 Navigator & Volume 3 of 5 on my '75 Ranchero).

You are going to like the last (Cabulture AU, local) option the best... eBay.

I have a 2008 Atos. It won't start. According to the manual, if the engine with key light flashes for 5 seconds, the car is in limp home mode. How do I clear this limp mode?


you cannot unless you fix the reason for the limp mode
you can reset the ECM using a scan tool but if you don't fix the reason in the first place it will simply go back into limp mode
read the fault codes to find the reason as it can be either engine or transmission

There is no way to get around a proper repair on a computer controlled transmission, that is wishful thinking. What is the fault code that is memory? Have you even run the system scan yet?

2003 land rover flashing tranmission lights M


Suggests a problem with the Automatic Gear box ECU, or X/Y selector switch. Can also be water in the connector as it joins the gearbox, or someone's knocked the ECU which is under the passenger seat (RHD).
Sometimes this can be cleared by stopping, turning off the ignition, and starting again and it's fine. It's alerting you that it is in 'Limp Home' mode (3)

Abs light, engine light


I have the same car, same problem and I've been doing some research. It seems to be that the most common problem is a faulty ABS sensor that causes the car to go into "Limp Home Mode". Limp Home Mode is automatically initialized when the car senses that it has some sort of electrical or mechanical issue. This is most likely what your experiencing, because I, and many other X-type owners are as well. Good Luck.
