It could be many things - the only practicable route is to get the fault codes read to see what is causing the problem, it could be something as simple as a faulty sensor.

JEEP CHEROKEE 2003 oil light came on the the car died then would not start again


If the car died and then the oil light came on than that is normal. If you lost oil pressure the light would come on and the engine would continue to run for a little while until it seized up. If this where the case it would have made a lot of noise and you would have felt a gradual loss off power until the engine finally stopped. I suspect the oil light came on after it stalled. If this is the case the first thing to check would be spark or fuel pressure. Crank sensors and fuel pumps are the two most common issues that would cause the engine to stall.

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.

Check engine light code p1133 on a chevy colorado 2005


The code means the ECM doesn't like the exhaust mixture coming thru the cat.
It could mean one of the O2 sensors has failed, but could also be caused by a list of other problems with the fuel-air mixture.
If the ECM can't adjust the fuel trim to keep in the range, the cat could be damaged and fail inspection, so the ECM turns the light on and goes into safe mode until the problem is fixed.

1995 Monte Carlo 3.1L Temp gauge does not move, Service Engine Soon light is on but fails to give codes, and fans constantly run when engine is on.


Sounds like you have a bad temp sensor and the computer is going into fail-safe mode causing the SES light to come on and the fans to run, if you have a scan tool check and see what the coolant temp reads.

Engine failsafe mode light stays on . Explorer was running fine before being parked for three weeks. Found the accessory switch was left on and battery completely dead. Recharged battery and restarted to...


I don't know how old the battery is but just to make sure its ok have it load tested. If battery is good after load testing then have vehicle scanned for codes and see what ECU says about the fail safe lite( what made it come on). Lastly have codes removes and ECU reset.
Usually if you didn't have an electrical problem (battery dying) I would say the output shaft is worn time for a rebuild.

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
