Hello, my name is***** you for allowing me to assist you today.
Safe mode will reset every time that the key is turned off. When the key is turned back on, if the condition still exists, it will go back onto Safe mode. If you are not getting any alarms, it is not in safe mode. It would just be running poorly.
