2005 Mustang GT. Engine Failsafe Mode
My 05' went to FAIL SAFE MODE. Wife was stopped in traffic waiting for bridge to close. Duration of about 10 min. It was at idle in park. I don't recall seeing check engine light.
Turned off and restarted, message cleared and car ran normally. Dealer said there was a code stored. Can't remember what it was, although it was not one familiar to them. Said they talked to engineering and were told it was some kind of advisory message. They ( engineering ) wanted to know if the car had been modded. It has none. Actually it must be the only BONE STOCK mustang on the planet.
Anyone else run into this?
