SOURCE: how do I clean the fuel throttle body on a 2000 S

VERY CAREFULLY ! .... you will see a small bead inside - this is the brains - do not harm !!
I use an electrical contact spray cleaner and spray it from both sides, if it still looks dirty then use a very soft child's paintbrush along with the cleaner. The performance of these beads can be affected by dirt as they are very sensitive, if you have ''air flow'' or associated warnings often and you keep needing to clean this unit look carefully at your air filter assembly and piping for leaks or ill-fitting parts. Hope this helped.

SOURCE: My 2000 Jaguar s type

It means that a fault has been detected and stored by the engine management system. The fault most likely a component within the engine electrical system e.g a camshaft sensor, crank sensor, O2 sensor etc.

The only way to narrow the fault down is to have the engine management fault memory read with a scanning tool, which any decent garage will have. The emissions test result could be a secondary problem as a result of the fault causing the warning light to come on, or there could be an air leak in the intake system or a leak in the exhaust system. From here you need to have the fault memory read and go from there.

If you do not want to go to the dealer you can try stopping by your local parts store, Pepboys or Autozone as they will usually scan for these codes at no charge. Their generic scan tool will be limited in its capabilities but all we need is the code number which is a P then four digits. Once you have the code numbers let me know what they are so I can assist you with the diagnosis and repair. Try this before to make some Throttle Body cleaning job.

Hope helps.

Nothing really to clean

Just an aluminum casting with a throttle plate

Spray with CRC Throttle Body Cleaner

All fuel injected vehicles are a dry system intake

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.

My 2000 Jag S type also keeps saying failsafe mode?


fail safe mode is something the vehicle computor will go into when there is a problem with the vehicle it allows u to get off the highway or road safely you need to take vehicle to repair shop or your dealer which ever u prefer Failsafe engine mode on a 2000 jaguar s type is caused by a stopped up throttle body. Jaguar says not to clean the throttle body since it has a protective coating to help keep deposits from accumulating. You can clean the throttle body as long as you use ONLY throttle body cleaner that states it is safe to use with a protective coating. The butterfly valve in the throttle body will actually stick not allowing air to flow into the manifold causing failsafe engine mode to kick in reducing the amount of power your engine will produce. To solve the issue just clean out your throttle body, it will cost you around $5 dollars and take 1 hour of your time.

Hi, the problem is, your throttle body is restricting the air flow to the engine due to carbon buildup, simply remove the complete throttle body and clean it very good and reinstall, your problem will be solved for sure.
