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: 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

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
ENGINE FAILED SAFE MODE WARNING LIGHT, GONE Total cost $86.45

My xj8 Jaguar crank up and sets right back off what all could be wrong


Security is set. Could be one problem. Fuel system can do this, but rarely. Takes a scanner to see where to look first.

Fail safe engine mode mean in a 2000 jaguar s type?


Hi Walter, the fail safe mode is for getting you home when something goes wrong and you need to move the vehicle a short distance. If it is engaged you should take the vehicle for a scan and find out what is wrong. Regards John

Not starting up just turning over


I don't have a solution, but I have the same problem. My 2000 jaguar set for about 2 weeks and when I tried to start it, the engine turns over but won't fire or start.

Failsafe engine mode light on. reasons why. xj308 v8 1998


My 1999 Jag XJ8 did the same thing when the cruise control was activated (red button by the gear shift), but I wasn't actually using the cruise control. I deactivated the cruise control and the fail safe message no longer appears.

What does Failsafe Engine Mode mean? my manual was stolen


Hello! Fail safe mode is when the vehicle's computer detects a serious problem an allows you to "limp" off the road or highway safely.

Fail safe mode on a Jaguar is mainly caused by a dirty and gummed up throttle body. The throttle body on your auto has a protective coating, so you can not use just any cleaner. It requires a throttle body cleaner that states "safe to use with a protective coating". The butterfly valve in the throttle body will actually "stick out". This causes fail safe mode to kick in reducing the amount of power your engine can produce.

Also check the plugs on your ECM (computer) and make sure they are all seated properly.

Stability control fail Jaguar XJ8


this may sound crazy but what sort of fuel are you running? Try filling the car with premium 98 octane and run it - if you are running inferior grade or dirty fuel the throttle body sensors will register a differential in the burn/energy and throw a fault. The bad news is that a faulty throttle body will cause the same problem and cost a fortune to replace.

Failsafe engine mode Asc Trac Not Available


I had the same issue...I went to Auto Zone and got a diagnostic...Came back that my Throttle Position Sensor was faulty...However after taking it to the dealer, and paying 135.00 for THEIR diagnostic...You can't simply buy the sensor. You have to buy a new Throttle Body at 902.00 + Tax atleast here in Vegas. I hope it's not your problem, but go get a FREE diagnostic first.
