fail safe engine management

Recommended Posts

On my way down to the new forest the fail safe management message came on on the dashboard and all power was lost . Turned off the engine as we just made it to services and started it again and it was fine for a while . Now we are at the new forest it does it every 10 minutes or less any ideas anyone and does anyone know of a jag specialist nearby that could help . My car is a 1999 3.0 se we are staying at Milford on sea near lymington

Hi mj,

 

I have been googling around but the good people of Leamington don't appear to have any good local service garages for Jaguars.

 

There is a place I found in Southampton: Regal Autosport - 02380 987412 - SO17 987412 Belrave Road.

 

I was wondering if there were any mobile mechanics in the area who could do the diagnostic test.  If you have an OBD2 code reader you might find out the problem, but it might need a more sophisticated pice of kit to find the problem.

 

I do recall an XK8 on Wheeler Dealers which had a similar problem  --  limp home mode coming on when the car was warmed up - which was found to be a faulty sensor.

 

I will look around for a mobile mechanic in the area and get back to you.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.
