The cause of this error may be the brake light switch on the brake pedal, it would need to be replaced.

The vehicle computer will go into fail safe mode when there is a problem with the vehicle. In failsafe engine mode you should go straight to a garage for repairing, usually is amajor problem

    Fail safe mode (limp mode) will start when the computer detect a problem that
    can cause potential serious damage to the engine or to the vehicle. The
    car will disable higher gears as protective
    measure.
    If you had to refill coolant there may be a problem with the head gasked causing the car to vapourize coolant inside the cylinders.
    You can often bypass fail safe mode disconnecting the battery for five minutes (you may be required car stereo code after reconnecting). My strong reccomendation is going to a qualified garage and not try bypassing fail safe mode, your car is well worth a check up.

What controls the a/c stepup in 2004 vitara j20 engine


happy new year.
WHAT IS THE RPM>?
hot or cold engine? both key factors.
the a/c puts a large load on the engine
the engine J20 is powerful, and has idle controls
so now those controls are dead.
1: if engine has full power then its not due to lean bogging at idel
2: idle controls failing, ISC failure or failsafe mode.(pcm)
3; Seizing a/c compressor.

idle controls are suspended in fails safe mode
idle controls will fail of engine is real lean.
idle controls will fail if the engine is overloaded.

we check the a/c by hand to see if its ok.
we scan the PCm see if DTC ERRORS. SEE RPM AT 800
See coolant at 180F
we then make sure the engine at hot idle is at closed loop status
if not, we fix that first.

idle is last to fix, all else must be correct or idle will or can fail.
eg: running real lean, running rich and misfiring. etc.
Egr VALVE STUCK OPEN

AND lots more..... ask

Why is failsafe mode activated when engine appears to be not overheated


some fords have a cylinder head temp sensor this what controls that type of failsafe.

Engine Failsafe Mode is activated


It may be if you ignore the light. Check the oil level and coolant levels first if ok have the fault codes read to determine the sensor that put the light on. Repair it and go from there.. Normally the ECM goes into safe mode to protect the engine and gear box from serious damage but it depends on the driver to react promptly to stop further damage occurring.

2004 RANGE ROVER IS IS ENGINE FAISAFE MODE AND IS NOT STARTING


I answered your other same question

If you have to add coolant,it had to go somewhere
as no fluids are consumed

So you have serious problems like a bad coolant
leak or bad head gasket if no visible leak can be found

You need a repair shop

No one can guess & help you from the internet

Repairs have to be made then know how to get out
of fail safe if that applies

That job will required factory reference material to
understand the problem & diagnose it

2006 f-150 goes into a failsafe mode.In the last month about once a week this did happen. As your driving the engine shuts off and the alert on the odometer says failsafe mode.Have you heard of this...


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

Car goes into failsafe mode; codes p2110 and p2107


Bad ignition coil,spiking the PCM,spike comes back on TPS Sensor,then to PCM again,putting the car into ETC Failsafe,and you can only go 6 MPH.

If the coils are not the issue,then the 2110 & 2107 come into play, and you spend $700,00 just for a new throttle body. The motor in it is not replaceable as of 2010,may be some day
In that case you better put it on yourself. Only (4) 10mm bolts,but you have to drain a little coolant,as it goes thru the throttle housing

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

Failsafe engine mode


The failsafe mode can appear following numerous faults being detected - some faults can be momentary and register but not cause a problem. These are normally reset by just turning ignition off/on. get the fault code memory read at a garage and this may give you a clue as to a possible problem developing. Failsafe mode will give you reduced engine performance but will allow you to drive for normally some distance. If a serious problem developes your car message centre will tell you to shut off the engine or it will shut it down.
good luck.

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...
