    Has anyone had the fault code...’Engine Control System Failure’ come up and CEL illuminate ?

    I had my 2012 w 9000 miles out on Sunday, was joy riding, turned it off, went into a store came back out and got this fault code..
    .. Car runs great, starts right up, no detectable problem. I put fresh fuel in in about 2 months ago. The car lives in an air conditioned showroom maintained at 76 degrees. The fuel level was about 5/8 full. Any comments would be appreciated
    Thank you

    Thanks for your input, yes it stays on a battery tender, the code reappeared after multiple restarts that day, I have not tried it since Sunday but I will do that first thing in the morning and see if it re-appears. Thanks again

    Hope it’s nothing! Mine acts up randomly then disappears.
    I’m sure others will chime in on your specific issue but generally speaking the FF has a lot of battery related issue. Sounds silly but sometimes just changing it (if old) solves a lot of stuff.
    Do u have a code reader? If u do could be interesting to read the exact code u are given and share on this thread!

    My Buddy has an import shop and he has a reader, I’m going to bring it down to him tomorrow hopefully and see what codes he can extract from the car. If we get stumped I’ll try putting in a fresh battery, sounds like something it maybe.... and yes of course I will report back. What year is your FF? I have only owned mine for about 18 months so I have not had it long. This is the only issue I’ve had. I absolutely love the car, it is a beast when needed and tame and gentle too. Everybody loves the car, feel very fortunate to be able to own and enjoy such a great machine

    Yeah well I wish I could run mine more, I have 5 kids and 240 employees..... I’m not complaining but I have a lot of time bandits in my life, the older I get however the more time I get to myself.....and my cars.
