Have you replaced ignition coils on this car previously? If so, did you use OEM Motorcraft coils, not aftermarket? The aftermarket coils do not play well with the PCM on this car, causing it to do goofy things including having it go into the ETC Failsafe mode. This is likely your issue since coil issues are common on this car. If it is not, let me know

What causes my 1998 Jaguar XK8 not to start when initially cranked and the Fail Safe message is displayed?


Is the check engine light displayed? If it is, that's where you start, by retrieving the fault code(s). If not, then you could have a security system fault, fuel system breakdown, etc. All codes, regardless of the systems affected, will cause the vehicle computer to immediately default to a failsafe mode, till the problem has been fixed, and this drastically affects driveability, causing no-start issues, idle problems, etc.

I have a 2004 ford explorer xlt. the indicator says engine fail safe mode. what could be the problem?


Failure Mode Effects Management (FMEM) is an alternate system strategy in the PCM designed to maintain engine operation if one or more sensor inputs fail.
When a sensor input is perceived to be out-of-limits by the PCM, an alternative strategy is initiated. The PCM substitutes a fixed value and continues to monitor the incorrect sensor input. If the suspect sensor operates within limits, the PCM returns to the normal engine operational strategy.
All FMEM sensors display a sequence error message on the scan tool. The message may or may not be followed by Key On Engine Off or Continuous Memory DTCs when attempting Key On Engine Running Self-Test Mode.
With the fail safe mode was the "Service" wrench light lit or check engine light ?

What does an orange diagram of engine light means when it shows off


The amber colored engine lamp means that something is wrong with either the engine or transmission systems. Input sensors monitor the engine and transmission to be sure they are within factory specifications. With this information the computer can adjust things like fuel control, idle speeds, transmission shift points etc. If an input or output is not working correctly the computer will sense this an throw an engine lamp on the inform you that there is a concern. In most cases the computer will use information from other sensors to keep the vehicle running until repairs are made. In more serious cases, the computer will flash the engine lamp and/or put the vehicle in fail safe mode. Fail safe mode will limit the amount of fuel to the fuel injectors and sometimes limit the transmission speeds and throttle response. You need to have codes retrieved either from a dealer, service station or auto parts store. The auto parts store will usually do it for free but their tester may not pull all codes. Good luck.

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