Electronic Timing Control. Has to do with your coil packs/spark plugs. There was a recall on this, check with your dealer for a TSB on the issue. Car running rough?

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.

What is the reset fail safe mode on ford Explorer 2005?


This is the best answer I could find but it appears that your owners manual has the answer in it unless you are in the position this person is in after disconnecting battery. Good luck.

Safe mode car radio


To unlock your VW factory radio from "SAFE" mode, you will need to enter the radio code. Typically, the code is written on a radio card included with the documentation for the vehicle when the car is first sold.

If you don't have the code, or have lost it, you can retrieve it by visiting your VW dealer. You will need the car's VIN number and the serial number of the radio (located on the body of the radio).

The procedure to enter the code is as follows:

Press the "MODE" and "SCAN" buttons simultaneously and hold them until "1000" appears on the radio display. Release the buttons as soon as this number appears.

Refer to your Radio Card and use the station preset buttons ("1", "2", "3" and "4") to input the code. Press the "1" button repeatedly to input the first digit, the "2" button to input the second digit, etc.

Press and hold the "MODE" and "SCAN" buttons simultaneously until "SAFE" appears again. Release, and the radio should be unlocked.

Do not enter the wrong code more than three times, or the radio will lock itself. Note the dealer can also enter the code for you (they may charge a small fee).

05 mini cooper S went into limp home mode, warrning lights blinking, shut off and re-started. Stopped for a bit then back into limp home ? what might be causing this


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

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

Does the etc engine fail safe mode engage when driving 20mpg or less in snow? I love 2003 lincoln LS. This question is not addressed in the owner's guide.


the engine fail safe [limp mode] engages for or when the engine/trans senses damage or something that can cause extreme damage[ no oil pressure] the limp mode is so u can safely get off road or to a service location
