This mourning on my way into work my car went into fail safe mode. The car was running for 45min prior to the fail safe mode. I pulled over turn the car off then back on and it was back to normal. At that point I only had 2 miles to work and seemed to be just fine.

I have not added anything to the car. Is it possible that it was just a flukey thing that just happen or should I try to dig deeper?

Mine liked to do that in the winter when I was driving like a grandma. I never figured out why, but I'd just shut it down, turn it back on, and keep rolling.

Thanks another that makes me feel a little better. It did scare the crap out of me as I have never had an issue with this car like that. The CAI has been on the car for 3 years now and have not changed the tune or anything in that time frame.

Does the car still have the factory Throttle body? I have seen were the TB starts going bad and makes the car go into Fail safe mode.
