First try to find a Good Independent Jaguar specialist, as these tend to give much better service on difficult problems than the main dealers who always seem to just want to put new parts on your car and give you a massive Bill ! Fail safe mode can be caused by many things. faulty temp sensor - throttle position sensor - air flow sensors- faulty coils - the list is endless ! Get the codes read on your car by a specialist - this history will show areas where the fault lies. If the codes are not too clear a running monitor test on your car when in use can help to identify the problem area. But make sure you take it to a GOOD garage ! Don't panic as the fact that the car is still drivable and the fault resets when restarted shows that the problem is in one of the electronic sensors - components or could even be a corroded wire in a cable loom. There is a list of known problem areas and reoccurring faults that will be known or accessible to a Jag specialist or Good Garage. Hope this helps - good luck.

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

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.

Failsafe engine mode Asc Trac Not Available


I had the same issue...I went to Auto Zone and got a diagnostic...Came back that my Throttle Position Sensor was faulty...However after taking it to the dealer, and paying 135.00 for THEIR diagnostic...You can't simply buy the sensor. You have to buy a new Throttle Body at 902.00 + Tax atleast here in Vegas. I hope it's not your problem, but go get a FREE diagnostic first.
