Failsafe mode now getting codes P0303, P061B and P2106

Post by Athomas » Thu Oct 26, 2017 6:00 am

Maybe about a couple weeks ago My wife started getting failsafe mode when she started up her 2005 freestyle and it seemed as if it was loosing power. Shortly after that the check engine light came on. I went to Autozone to have it read. It came back with error codes P0303(cylinder 3 misfire detected), P061B(internal control module torque calculation performance) and P2106(throttle actuator control system- forced limited power). I’ve changed all the plugs and coil packs within the last two years. It’s closing in to close to 250,000 miles. What are some other causes I need to check out.

cylinder 3 could be a clue as it is closest to the EGR and any associated problems with the EGR itself or the back flow/clogging of the catalytic converter. You did not have any associated EGR codes with your misfire code so that's good. Since you have replaced plugs and coils before, maybe try switching coil number 3 to a different cylinder and see if the misfire code moves with it or stays on number 3. That could help give you direction for next steps. A clogged cat will certainly cause a noticeable loss of power.

Just a update it turned out to be the throttle body was sticking. Replaced and no further issue.

05 SEL AWD

I been having intermittent speedo issues with the speedo getting stuck at 30 mph and also reporting my current speed as going 5 mph faster then my actual speed.

Also get an " Engine Failsafe Mode" error for the first time a few days ago. I just get back from my mechanic they tried to pull codes the only error they found was a miss communication error with the computer.

After about 30 mins of troubleshooting they found the issue to both the speedo and the failsafe mode problem.

Mice built a nest and chewed and damaged wires on the wiring harness.

So far everything seems to be working with no problems.

05 SEL AWD

Over the weekend had an issue after starting and immediately turning on the AC get and
" Engine Fail Safe Mode" error, turned ignition key off and restarted now got a " Check Engine" light.

Connected tool and getting P0610, P2106,P061B any ideas on what the fix might be hopefully not
a throttle body replacement.

I cleared the check engine light car is running fine ....WTF
