    I have a 2004 V-8. At about the 100k mileage, I noticed what seemed like the engine missing. Eventually, the engine light came on and it was running rough, and went into fail safe mode. The Ford dealer identified a cable as bad and an answer shop indicated that a cable was bad and that the plugs could be fouled. This happened 2 times to the tune of about $1100.00. The vehicle still runs rough and the check engine light is on-- the vehicle goes into fail safe mode if traveling at highway speed (60-75 mph) and the accelerator is hit. When I pull off the highway, turn off the ignition and turn it back on, the problem goes away until the next time. The dealer doesn't have any clear idea what it is. Does anybody?

    I also am having the same problem, when coming home from the airport today i had the etc failsafe mode msg on my msg center then the car stalled out, cutting off completely...I had the car for little over a year and have already put a transmission in it and now this. It took me a lil over 2hrs to get home from the airport which would have usually took me 30mins...if anyone knows what to look for first let me know, im going to hook it up to the machine tomorrow and see what codes are on it

    I'm having this problem as well and don't want to throw good money after bad! Just had 1 coil replaced to the tune of $225. Not in the mood to finance someone else's learning disabilities about this. I have already posted the details of my current car problems on this website as well. Appreciate you guys, Please let me know what your solution is. I'm starting on my coil packs tomorrow!

My etc light came on and i took to the lincoln dealer it was my fuel system and it had to be replaced for the tune of 800 dollars. after that it ran fine for about a month then i hit a hump then it went into etc mode again. i then took it back to lincoln they did not see a code or that it even went into etc mode because i cut the car off and turned it back on it ran fine but once you cut it off it resets itself it did this about 10 more times and never came back on again knock on woods no problems but it started missing and the check engine light came on it was a misfire in cylinder 4 and it replaced the spark plug myself and it has ran find ever since. I was told anytime the etc light comes on it due to fuel or transmission

I own a 2003 ls V8. I had this same problem. Coils bad, oil leaking on them and the spark plugs, car stalling out like crazy. There is a Recall for this exact problem. My car is currently being fixed at my local ford dealer for free. Coils are being replaced, valve covers, spark plugs. Don't let anybody else tell you what the problem is, like the dealership to be specific. My friend and I took apart the engine, it's a jaguar engine btw and its a pain in the ****. anyways, all 8 coils were soaked in oil, all of the spark plugs and a coil was blown. That is why the car stalls. A coil is 100% blown. Find the warranty on the internet, but more importantly just stand firm and tell them you know all about the warranty, which is everything I just told you. You should be golden. I was

2003 Lincoln LS V8, Won't turn over after errors

Forget the four coils. That is a common problem,but I would question 4 failing.
The ABS ,Parking Brake,Speedo Etc,where nothing to worry about,you were loosing power, when it went to fail safe,so they came up.

ETC -is Electronic Throttle Control, your problem? Maybe
You will need to have a scanner put on it's,daignostic connector under the dash,to check for codes. Them only a trained technician can follow a chart or test proceedure to properly repair.
I have a 2004 LS,one of Ford most high tech and complicated vehicles.
Conclusion: only a professional can repair you car.
I would start with a local shop. If money you have money to throw away,go to a dealer.
Most likely have to wave to it on a flat bed carrier. Don't flat tow it.

I own the same vehicle and have all the manuals. Give me all the codes the dealer got and all they did since new, in detail. Stop with the dealer. You go to a dealer for 2 reasons only. To buy the vehicle and warrantee work ONLY,unless you have deep pockets.

What causes 2004 Lincoln LS with V8 to go into

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

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
