You need to get the codes checked by someone with a scan tool. Then repost with codes for more help

Fail safe engine mode mean in a 2000 jaguar s type?


Hi Walter, the fail safe mode is for getting you home when something goes wrong and you need to move the vehicle a short distance. If it is engaged you should take the vehicle for a scan and find out what is wrong. Regards John

If the light stays on when your moving that shows a problem....I think that what your seeing is the computer testing the verious curcuits as its programmed to do

Is it safe to drive my car


Restricted performace means the power has been cut for some reason, its probably safe to drive but needs to be serviced. Check your manual for possible causes of the light being on to determine your next course of action..

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.

Engine failure mode message on display


Hi Keith

Probably those little Jag gremlins at it again ?

First thing to do is clear the computers memory, which normally does the trick.

Disconnect both battery terminals, switch on the ignition to start 6 times, this wipes the computer memory, and then reconnect the battery, the Positive + first......... then the Negative -----

Start the car and go from there.

Suspect you had a low battery previously, and this tripped the warning.

Get the battery checked, if it is the original, as it is now 8yrs old, and should be replaced.


Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be appreciated Thank you !

John.

Failed safe engine mode 1999 V8 S Type


I've got a 2000 that did the same thing. Get this, it was caused by a defective trunk seal that let water in my trunk and got my wiring wet. Could'nt even shut off the car, only way to kill it was to pull the positve battery cable, negative won't kill it. After all dried out, and jag dealer reset my failsafe mode all good....... until now i have a .500 ma draw on power while sitting unused, brand new batteries down in 1 week??
