Hi

Disconnect the battery overnight, then when reconnecting put the live "red" on first then the "black" negative second, this should flash the cars computer and reset to factory settings.

Hope this helps
Regards
Dan

Replace the battery. (And possibly the Alternator). Reset any codes and try again. A week battery will cause al kinds of havoc and will result in just what you describe. BMW's are very sensitive to correct voltage.

the best thing to do is to have the car scaned with the diagnostic computer to see what fault codes are stored.

The dealer is correct but any auto prts store caqn bring the codes up for free as they want to sell you the parts to fix it. Failsafe is involve with exhaust emmissions and the car needs fixed noe before the parts are failed

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

Our 2001 lincoln ls was running fine, then all of a sudden now it wont start. we have replaced the battery, and everything else turns on, it is just hard to turn the key and it wont start--and it was all...


I would love to answer this question but I am having the same issue. I have a 2000 LS with the V8..replaced the battery about 2 weeks ago and last night I went to go home and it won't start. All the bells ring when I turn the key but when I turn to the right to "start" position, nothing. No clicking, no noise at all. I called the Lincoln dealership and we went over the alarm light "not flashing" and shifter position. They have no advice other than "tow it in".
The vehicle had been running fine.

Failsafe engine mode light comes on, codes


Just a quick mention - for about a month my XK8 low coolant light came on intermittently. This week with no notice while driving normally I got Stability Control Fail and FailSafe Engine Mode and wtih great difficulty got the car back to where I started from (less than a mile). Two days later (when got time) and after a bit of research, I tried it again - same problem and a very unhappy engine. I then disconnected the battery for 15 minutes (probably more) to clear the engine codes as well as check all the wiring and vacuum stuff I could under the hood (at a Jaguar master mechanic's recommendation). No problems found but the car would start and immediately stall with the air intake hose disconnected from the intake butterfly. After I reconnected the air intake hose, she started and purred like normal. The problem is the BATTERY... It is low - I've known it for a LONG time BUT it always started right up and never skipped a beat. I intend to replace it tonight but fully expect that's the issue. I've had the car 6 years (it's a 98) and had NO problems except a dead taillight asembly.

Hope this is of value...

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Alternator issues?


have the alternator regulator and diodes tested. sometimes when the regulators fail they allow ac voltage to go to the battery. ac voltage doesn't charge the battery properly (causes it to deep cycle and shortens its life) and causes all sorts of funny problems with the car. also make sure the battery is secured properly, vibration isn't good for them at all.
