[s-type] 01 4.0L S-Type

I just sold an S-Type to a client who is experiencing an
intermittent message upon acceleration - ‘‘failsafe engine mode’’.
Having difficulty getting any info on this problem. Has anyone
experienced this? What is it? Is it safe to drive until the Jag
dealer can fit him in? Thanks for any info. Bucz–

In reply to a message from Bucz sent Tue 13 Jun 2006:

My 1999 4.0 V8 s-type started displaying failsafe engine mode last
November and also the AMBER warning light came on.
Took it to local independant jag dealer who connected it to his
computer and he told me fault was with the accelerator pedal, He
told me he re-set the code warning and to come back if the light
came on again which it did 20 mins later when I accelerated.
Apparently the pedals are electronic (No accelerator cable)any way
I had a new pedal fitted and the car has been ok since!
Cost about �200 altogether the only good news is that it dosn’t
take long to change(20 mins) and so the labour charge was
reasonable.–
