What happens when the alarm on a 2000 S Type won't let the car start and the Engine Failsafe Mode light appears Also the key can be taken out of the ignition and the vehicle won't shut off when on?
This sounds like a problem that is better left to the Jaguar dealer to resolve. The security system and interfaces are extreamly complicated.
Not to scare anyone, but it may be a combination of more than one concurrent problem as well:
1) I had a situation when the flooded trunk caused alarm activation, running out of battery and then preventing the start.
2) I had a problem the car forced into a Failsoft mode mode, - but this one was caused by a faulty rear control unit ("computer") in the trunk (located behind a side panel on the gas cap side) - this intermittent failure was forcing the car in the FailSoft mode as well.
I am not sure of the cause, but the Failsafe Engine Mode has been a recurring problem in my 2005 Mustang for about two years and over 40000 miles now. At first it occurred intermittently but then developed into a frequent occurrence. The check engine light may or may come on at the same time. When going into Failsafe Engine Mode, th 'Failsafe Engine Mode' wording appears on the dash where the odometer is. Upon…
The ignition switch is immediately behind and attached to the ignition lock cylinder. The ignition lock cylinder is where you place the key to start your vehicle. If you are haveing problems with your vehicle not starting and or turning the key, more than likely you need to replace the ignition lock cylinder. It is common for these to go bad in GM vehicles.
turn the ignition key to the on position (but do not start the vehicle) .Then push the trip odometer button a few times until the word oil appears on the screen. There will be a number next to the word oil. Hold the button in until the number 100 appears next to the word oil and then your good to go
To be clear, this is the cylinder ignition lock we are talking about, not the ignition starter switch. If the tumblers are damaged or 'bad', the key may be able to be removed fromt the ignition lock while the car is running. Also, the key may simply not go into the ignition lock anymore. On most cars the cylinder ignition lock is a separate item and can be replaced for a moderate price. However, this…
# With a master vehicle key, turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. # Observe the security indicator. After approximately 10 minutes, the telltale will turn OFF. # Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds. # Repeat steps 1-3 two more times for a total of 3 cycles or 30 minutes.

How do you replace the ignition module on a 2001 Ford Taurus and what is the estimated cost for the module?
The ignition module sits at the driver end of engine near the transmission, It is obvious as six plug leads come out of it. Remove all leads and connectors and unscrew four bolts on the corners of the module. I believe they are 7mm bolts on most '95 -'03 Taurus and Sable. Now fit you new module ans re-connect wires. All can be done in less than30 minutes, don't waste money taking it to a…
How can you tell if a starting problem is a starter or an ignition switch or a clutch switch in a 94 Honda Accord with manual transmission?
if you turn your key and nothing happens just the dashboard lights come on that would be your clutch start switch. if you hear a grinding sound when trying to start vehicle or a humming sound that would be your starter.if the vehicle cranks fine but for some reason it won't start then you would look at the ignition system(spark plugs,wires,etc) as your first possible cause.
