This fault can be caused by a low battery, as the ecu/pcm require power even when ignition is off ,so a battery that doesnt hold a good charge will make these components think the vehicle is being stolen and wont let it start , get a new battery and once started check the alternator charge rate in case that is the reason for battery poor condition

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

Ford v10 problems


When the engine light is on there is problems in the transmission and engine that have to be identified quickly before damage is done to either or both. Check oil and coolant levels and check the operating temperature of the engine (overheating). The CPU has the engine in limp mode until you fix what is wrong and reset the CPU with a code reader when you have finished.

Look in the owners manual

There is usually only a couple choices
when you go into Fail Safe

ETC Fail Safe -- for ignition problems,to protect the converter
Overheating Fail Safe
Transmission Limp Mode or Overheat

Just examples
Don't know your vehicle systems

Check for codes as ALWAYS WITH ALL
VEHICLE PROBLEMS first thing you do,
don't need to ask any questions

Check for codes-- then google them

My 2005 ford explorer 4x4 xlt (v8 4.6 ltr)has trouble code p2106. what does this trouble code mean?


P2106 is an informational code and is usually set by some other fault.

This DTC means is that the PCM detected a fault with the electronic throttle control and went into fail safe mode. It doesn't tell you specifically what system or component went haywire, just that something was wrong, the PCM didn't know what to do so it went to a known good operating parameter, in this case fail safe mode. Likely is a problem with the TPS sensor and will need to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

Over heating causes it to shut down 2 cyl n run on 6 cyl to help cool it down but once that happens the best is to shut it off check the cooling system check for antifreeze make sure its full then take the ground off the battery that's in the trunk beside the spare tire n leave the postive on but take off negative n leave it off for 5 mins then hook it back on it will turn the safe mode off back to normal. That's what I did to my 04 lincoln LS v8 3.9l... hope this helps ya

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
