P2104 Throttle Actuator Control System - Forced Idle
P2107 Throttle Actuator Control Module Processor
P2110 Throttle Actuator Control System - Forced Limited RPM
P2111 Throttle Actuator Control System - Stuck Open
P2112 Throttle Actuator Control System - Stuck Closed

Seems like Throttle Actuator is the problem.

Good luck on this repair.

    I too had the same codes on my 2004 Lincoln LS 3.0. But how could it be the throttle actuator if I had just replaced the entire throttle body before I got the diagnostic from the dealership? Yet they told me I need to replace all 6 ignition coils, when none of the 300 codes even came up. Because its time to renew my tags, I took my car to get smogged even though my check engine light is on. I read on the internet that ignition coil failure does cause emission failure, so I was hopinhg to qualify for the government assistance to fix the coils. Only to find out that I passed emissions, and failed the function light test. In addition to the previous throttle actuator codes, the smog place gave me about 6 new codes. My car is currently at Meineke (obviously the dealership prices are ridiculous), and after originally agreeing with the dealership about the coils, Meineke is now telling me that after driving my car, no codes showed up at all. Therefore, they don't believe it is the coils, and think it may be some bad wiring with the PCM. The symptoms of my car consists of the wrench light turning on while sometimes accelerating, and the car seems to bog out. I basically then have to pull over and re-start my car. After restarting, the car is fine until I accelerate abnormally again. The check engine light always stays on. Can someone please prevent me from not getting inevitably screwed over?

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.

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).

My 1998 beetle is stuck in 3rd gear. the engine and coolant light is on any suggestions?

This just happened to me. I drove the beetle in the snow and slid up to a stop sign. The slide engaged the anti-lock brakes. After that, the car was sluggish starting out and would not shift into 4th gear.
Turns out, the transmission was stuck in 3rd gear. If you can believe it, this is by design! It's a fail safe mode that gets triggered by the wheels spinning out of sync.
According to my mechanic there are wheel speed sensors on each wheel. If the computer senses the wheels moving at different speeds it will drop into fail safe mode. This requires a special scan tool to clear the codes.
Once the codes were cleared, ran like new.

ETC fail safe mode appeared on screen-what is this?

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?
