When this happens, usually you have to replace the Computer. There is a chance you just didn't reset it when you took to cables off. Remove them and tape or hold them together for 5minutes or longer. If it still does it, I would get a book and find out where the code is to lead you. With the obd it only gives you a starting point in the diagnosics. You may have air in your lines that need bled, a sensor out, or just plain adjustment of the cables. But it shouldn't go into limp home mode unless you lost your Engine Control Monitor. Oh, I didn't click the read more button. Check the E-brake cables. You may have run over something that hooked it and ripped it loose. The Jags can tell if the cable is too far out of adjustment. It's under the car, cable should go through the floor and run to the rear of the car and Y out to the rear wheels. Good luck.

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 Failsafe 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.

Have you another key and fob ?
Try lock/unlock cycle with new key + fob. Your key may be corrupted.
Try also just unlocking the car with the key (not the fob) as soon as you unlock the door put the key in the ignition immediately and see if the car starts.
If you have your radio code it may be worth trying a total reset (leave the car unlocked) disconnect the battery and leave for 20 mins. then reconnect, most systems will then reboot and this MAY help?
Failing all the above it looks like dealer time - more ££ss
good luck !

Lack in fuel pressure picked up by fuel rail pressure sensor hence flashing glow plug light, there is more than one pump on this vehicle so a fuel pressure test is required to pin point, it could even be the FRPS itself. Quite a popular fault on common rail diesels.
