Having problems with your 2000 Jaguar S-Type ?
My 2000 Jag S type also keeps saying failsafe mode?
\015 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?\015
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\015\012\015\012Failsafe 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.
