SOURCE: engine failsafe mode

does the engine completely shut off? It sounds like the electronic throttlebody is causing the problem.

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.

SOURCE: failsafe engine mode

The failsafe mode can appear following numerous faults being detected - some faults can be momentary and register but not cause a problem. These are normally reset by just turning ignition off/on. get the fault code memory read at a garage and this may give you a clue as to a possible problem developing. Failsafe mode will give you reduced engine performance but will allow you to drive for normally some distance. If a serious problem developes your car message centre will tell you to shut off the engine or it will shut it down.
good luck.

SOURCE: failsafe engine mode light comes on, codes

Just a quick mention - for about a month my XK8 low coolant light came on intermittently. This week with no notice while driving normally I got Stability Control Fail and FailSafe Engine Mode and wtih great difficulty got the car back to where I started from (less than a mile). Two days later (when got time) and after a bit of research, I tried it again - same problem and a very unhappy engine. I then disconnected the battery for 15 minutes (probably more) to clear the engine codes as well as check all the wiring and vacuum stuff I could under the hood (at a Jaguar master mechanic's recommendation). No problems found but the car would start and immediately stall with the air intake hose disconnected from the intake butterfly. After I reconnected the air intake hose, she started and purred like normal. The problem is the BATTERY... It is low - I've known it for a LONG time BUT it always started right up and never skipped a beat. I intend to replace it tonight but fully expect that's the issue. I've had the car 6 years (it's a 98) and had NO problems except a dead taillight asembly.

Hope this is of value...

SOURCE: 2005 lincoln ls going into etc failsafe mode

I had to replace 4 different coils on my '02 LS before it finally stopped misfiring. After one code and coil replaced it would go to the next one. I had to replace them in this order, 2,3,7,8

When # 7 was misfiring it wouldn't even pull a code all of the time, the check engine light would come on one day then go off the next, really strange.

Failsafe engine mode


You might try to have your battery tested. The Anti-theft system reacts to low battery voltage and automatically reduces the Voltage to the starter so it will not turn over or turn over fast enough to start; thereby defeating thieves.

Failsafe usually is an extreme heat sensor mode which deactivates some of the cylinders so the engine exhausts excess heat through the exhaust valve. This is why top speed is limited and power is reduced. The deactivated cylinders act like air compressors, they have no fuel charge, and thereby draw air into the cylinder and expel heated air.

Failsafe engine mode


go to a parts store and have the codes read(most of them will do it for next to nothing. There is also more than likely some maintenance needed. get back to me when you have the codes and we can diagnose this together.
Just because there is a code does not necessarily mean that part is bad, but an area to test to find the actual problem.

Solution for the message "engine fail safe mode" in explorer 2005


I have hearing a lot of this lately with Fords. Most of the time this dash board light comes on due to problems with the Throttle Body (TB)not just your coolant,etc.. If it is sticking,dirty,causing misfires,etc. then this can cause an engine fail safe mode.You might first try putting in some injector cleaner and a higher grade of gas.Many people I know who have had this problem have had to have their TB cleaned and/or replaced. This is something Ford dealerships now about,but hasn't been made a recall or anything.There are service bulletins though.Mainly keeping cleaner in your gas and performing ritual tune-ups/oil changes may be the only thing you can do.Hope this helps

The vehicle began to run real sluggish and the warnig "failstop failure" came on and a light in the dash in the shape of a wrench?


This indicates that a sensor(could be any of many) has either failed or is providing values outside of the normally expected range. The vehicle computer is substituting estimated values for the actual measurements from this sensor to keep your engined running(failsafe mode).

The problem could be minor or serious. Take it to any parts store and have them pull the codes, these should provide clues as to what the problem is. Most parts stores will do this for free.
