Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Message Flashes on the Dash "Engine Fail Safe Mode" - what does that mean?

1 Answer

Not Active

Typically when a newer vehicle goes into a failsafe (some companies call it limp-home mode) it is because the on board diagnostics system is sensing a problem with the engine operations. however, typically when a car goes into a limp mode, they make very little power, only enough to literally limp the car somewhere safe. If you have had any sort of mechanical problems recently, I would take up your issue with whomever fixed it before. Also, if you do not keep up with regular maintenance, I would check through the manual and see if there isnt some issue that jaguar feels is a "must" item to repair/replace periodically.
