Sounds like a sensor issue on your transmission. it is going into failsafe mode for some reason because the computer is not receiving an input that it should. there may be a loose wiring connection on the tranny. the first thing i would do is check for loose wires. after that you may need one of several sensors. if the car works fine when this message does not appear i would not think the transmission itself is bad.

First check transmission dip stick for correct fluid level. Next schedule a transmission filter change. This should have been done at 60,000miles

The engine fail safe program light came on in my BMW X5 2006 and now the car won't start ...can It be reset?


Depends why the Failsafe was triggered. Read the codes would be a good way to start. Anyway, since the car wont start, it may be the crankshaft position sensor, which will cause a trans failsafe and prevent the car from starting.

How do I reset the "transmission failsafe program" light on the dash? The car seems to drive normal except for that light being on.


Keep driving it, you will have a $5,000 repair bill

Stop using it & hope you can save the trans with the
proper diagnosis, to find the reason it went into failsafe

Electronic Throttle Control Indicator Light dodge caliber 2007


Stop using the car--period

Have it checked for codes,road tested &
diagnosed

I think you have very bad ignition coils that
put it into failsafe

They are so bad they spike the computer &
take out the throttle postion sensor signal &
you get ETC Failsafe

Can't use it like that-- it will ruin the exhaust converter

The airbag light is illuminated on the dash of my 1995 GMC Sonoma pickup. I think it started after a shop replaced the transmission control module inside the car. Is there anyway to fix this myself or do I...


When it come to airbags take back and let the fix it.It could blow up in you face and they cost $2500.00 to replace so i think if they blow it they can pay for it.

BMW X5 2004 TRANS FAILSAFE PROG


Hi; If I get the 'Trans Failsafe Prog" message twice within about 2 hours, The SES light will go on automatically. Since I do not seem to have any real transmission problems, this SES message clears itself in about 24 hours. The "Trans Failsafe Prog" messageseems to be used to indicate other transmission problems as well, like loss of transmission fluid, so be careful. I have a 2002 X5. Cheers. Omer

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...
