Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type

1 Answer

My 2000 Jag S type also keeps saying failsafe mode?

I keep getting failsafe mode flashing then my Jag cuts off as well. What is the problem? I can't get it inspected until that is fixed? Is it that the computer needs reprogramed?

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.

My 1999 Jag XJ8 did the same thing when the cruise control was activated (red button by the gear shift), but I wasn't actually using the cruise control. I deactivated the cruise control and the fail safe message no longer appears.

My 2001 chrysler sebring will not shift out of 1st gear


The fault code P1684 means that power to your powertrain control module (PCM) was interrupted. The most common cause of this is because of a weak battery. When the car is stated, the voltage drops low enough that it cuts power to the PCM for just a brief moment, which will set the fault. It can also be caused by a wiring issue to the PCM, or a bad connection in the battery cable. It may or may not cause issues with drivability. The fault should be thoroughly diagnosed by a qualified technician

What the P0700 code means. P0700 is set when the PCM detects a malfunction in the transmission control system. This malfunction causes the vehicle to set a Check Engine Light and trigger a failsafe mode. Once the failsafe mode is set it will remain until the fault is repaired or normal operation is detected

Alarm/ indicator lights keep flashing when i turn the car on


Yes.. the circuit is stuck in the safe mode. Usually when you disconnect the battery it goes in the safe mode as if someone is trying steal the car and cut the battery wire to cut the alarm off, so it goes back on as soon as the circuit completes. So just get that cleared up and you will be fine.

My care keeps saying failsafe engine mode and it keeps cutting off? Do you by any chance know what's wrong?


Many things can cause this message, get it to a good jarage and have the fault codes read - this will tell you what is going on. Don't panic - it could just be a faulty sensor .. these cars are very prone to this. Try to avoid using a jag main dealer for the code readings as they are expensive and tend to ''overcompensate'' for repairs! Most good independant garages have the ability to read the fault codes.
Hope this helps - please post the fault when know.

I want to repair the heating of a Mitsubishi Diamante - 1999


The heater coil is malfunctioning and if you dont have it fixed soon it will begin to leak on your ECU and cause the car to go into failsafe mode which essentially means it will be stuck in 3rd gear whilst flashing neutral, meaning the car will lag terribly until you reach 60km/h. The car should not be driven for an extende period whilst in failsafe mode. You have a small problem at the moment but if you dont see to it quickly it will be very costly.
