New to the forum and not technically minded at all.
My son and i went to look at a 1998 XK8 today that has not been used for 5/6 years. We took a mechanic with us who commissioned the car enough to start it, engine runs like a dream.
HOWEVER, the car reverses ok but will NOT drive...
For some time I have observed the fault code 'Failsafe engine mode'. I have also noticed that the cruise control isn't working and actually immediately triggers this fault. Should check the brake pedal switch, but haven't worked up the nerve to try and get it out for proofing.
