engine "fail-safe" mode

I have a 2005 F150 Lariat 4x2 automatic which went into fail safe mode while driving down the highway. It immediately went to idle and could'nt get any responce from the throttle what so ever. Creeped to a safe pull off area and turned the truck off. I then restarted the truck and the message went away and truck drove fine. What might be the issue...truck only has 38,000 miles?

They have an updated calibration but most of the time it is the tps sensor on the throttle body.Ford uses alot of loctite on the little screws so they break easily.We usually just replace the throttle body assembly.

If you need help with your Ford problems then this is the place to ask. If your just gonna rant & rave then you need to do it elsewhere. I've went through your post and cleaned up the language, I won't do it again...
