What is fail safe mode for transmission in 2002 dodge stratus? What could cause fail safe mode to activate with the transmission


I believe fail safe mode is usually direct drive which in most 4 speed transmissions is third gear. As far as what could cause this could be many things, electrical, clutch leakage or transmission oil bypassing the clutch that the transmission wants to engage, clutch slippage which could be the friction disks in a certain clutch that don't have any friction material left on them. IE like a brake pad the friction material on the pad once it is gone the brakes don't operate very good you have metal to metal contact you need to change your brakes. same concept. Are their any codes? Did the check engine light or transmission light come on? If you have a light try and see what the light says by scanning the computer. this should give you a good place to start.

While driving noticed check engine light ,slip,and ect light on dash came on proceeded my journey , when i started up the car again it took several cranks before starting. Next day drove about half a mile...


the bank#1 cam position sensor has failed.this is located in the back of the cyl. head closest to fire wall.takes several attempts to start because lack of signal puts ecm in fail safe mode and it substitutes a value to get engine started.about a$100 for sensor and half hour to put it in.

Engine shuts donw and "Fail Safe" message is displayed.


first thing you should do is have it plugged into a scanner to see what the problem is.places like auto zone and advance auto parts do it for free. then if it is the throttle position sensor its located on top of the engine not hard to do.but if its one of the four oxygen located on the exhaust sensors depends which one it is but usually requires special socket to remove them without stripping them, very hard.

Turn lights come on but do not blink


This means that one of the bulbs somewhere is burnt out. Its a fail safe to get the consumer to fix burnt out lights. if you do not have a bad bulb then it is the flasher, this is located in you fuse box. It needs to be replaced. ($5)

Fail safe mode and rear lights message on at times


Usually Fail safe comes on when there is a problem with the sensors of the throttle and gas pedal have reporting problem to ECU. You need to have the car diagnosed to see the error codes and check which sensor has the problem. there are three sensors that do the job of reporting to ECU. Could be the throttle or Gas pedal

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
