Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type
SOURCE: 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.

Sorry late reply - just seen this problem. The amber warning is basically saying a problem developing. The red and limp home action is showing more serious developement - But not always very bad news. Had car with same symptoms and it was a faulty sensor on engine, and another similar case was throtle position sensor. Get the car to a garage that can read the faults - so you know what the problem is that has been registered in the memory.
Hope this helps

Go to your local garage (anyone) and have them read the OBDII code this will tell you what has caused the problem, cost for this should be minimal £7-10 ask them for all the reported codes you can check them out at http://www.bluejag.co.uk if you wish to find out what they mean.

change the pedal sensor...thrttle is fine and will function properly as soon as its changed..make sure once you change it you turn the key to position two for 5 seconds then turn it back to position one ,then wait ten more seconds and turn the key to postion two for 5 seconds again to allow the ecu to calibrate.And make sure you unplug the neg terminal to do the install...once reconnected follow the above procedure...the crank the car.
