05 ford five hundred throttle body replacement question

Post by SILVAMANE » Thu Jun 29, 2017 8:52 pm

I'm getting a couple codes p2104, p2111 and my check engine light along with yellow wrench are lit up. Engine is in fail safe mode. I'm going to purchase the throttle body. my question is once I install the throttle body will the failsafe mode automatically turn off or how do I get it out of failsafe mode after the install? Any help would be appreciated. I pulled the throttle body and cleaned it already just figure I replace it as that didn't help with the issue.

Codes p2104 and 2111 and I'm replacing throttle body. Will failsafe mode automatically go away once installed or how do I get it out of failsafe mode. Throttle body has been cleaned didn't work. Replacing it

So to answer your question...yes...the car should stop going into limp mode if the TB was indeed the problem. I replaced both the TB and accel pedal assembly at the same time and my car has not gone into limp mode since.

Consider yourself lucky to have been able to see and catch the codes. I was only able to catch a code if I hooked up the code reader during a limp mode session before restarting the car. The codes went away for me after I restarted the car.

Make sure you buy the correct TB...some are "heated" and some are not...you can use a non-heated TB on a car that originally had a heated TB, but you have to install a small piece of bypass hose. I replaced my heated TB with a reman heated TB.

Thanks for the replies. Mine has stayed in limp mode this time. Turning car off and back on doesn't fix it at all. Also has the heated TB.

Good luck SILVAMANE...TB replacement is easy...hopefully your issues will be fixed with a new TB.
