Car entered safe mode while driving.Engine wouldn't turn over after shutoff.Long search by dealer mechanic. Diagnosis:failed alternator drained battery causing safe mode,made engine appear to be seized forcing major teardown to diagnose. Final diagnosis was failed alternator draining the battery causing low voltage and resulting in safe mode. The engine's inability to turnover was because of the failed alternator. No one had seen this failure before, causing the misdiagnosis of a failed cam chain and the disaster that results from that.

The engine had been "harsh" over the last few months and sometimes the yellow engine malfunction light would come on and the car would enter limp mode, solved by switching the ignition off and then on again. This got worse so we investigated to find the problem was caused by the timing activators. We replaced 2 and the engine returned to health!
