Thread: Beeeeep! FailSafe Engine Mode on my '05 GT

  1. Beeeeep! FailSafe Engine Mode on my '05 GT

    Noticed a few others posting up about this, but didn't wanna hi-jack, so here I am. Just before arriving at the Show & Shine, I got on it a little to pass someone up, and all I got was a "nope .. not today" from my GT. Well that and a beep, followed by the message reading Engine in FailSafe Mode. Almost felt like it shut down, the loss of power was so dramatic .. so we get there, I shut down and restart, and the message goes away. Anyway, JCSGT hooks his Diablo up to it to see what codes it's giving me (thanks, Jeff), I jot those down, he clears 'em, and we continue with our day. On the way home, everything seemed perfectly fine, 'til again, I go to pass someone up, and as soon as I step on it a little, I get "denied" ... So we go a few miles, before we're able to pull into a gas station, I shut 'er down and restart, and it clears the message so we get back on the road, I set my cruise on 75, and we finally make it back. Now just gotta wait on the dealership to be open again, which'll probably be Tuesday, and maybe if I get on it a little, it'll come back on so it's doing whatever it does when I take it in. Wish me luck!

    Laura, Jeff cleared your codes on your first mishap. Your codes are still stored from your second mishap. Dealership will be able to download your fault codes and fix the problem

    Ahh, okay, then I guess it doesn't need to act up when I am able to take it in. In the meantime, he's gonna have a look at it, as he thinks he knows what the problem is.

    I had mine do this when the TB motor was acting up. Mine wouldn't even run,
    had to have a truck pick me up.

    Yeah, one of the codes Jeff pulled had something to do with the TB actually, so we shall see ...
