Re: Engine failsafe program
This message is similar to what US version BMW's get ( SES light ). I have a fault in my ECU and i get it everytime when my engine starts cold.
But like i said, you need to let the dealer check for electronic faults that are triggernig this "limp mode" !
When "engine failsafe prog" comes on, it basically makes your car go into SAFE MODE which means you cannot accelerate.
