i need to know the number of the code
The anti their code when starting headlights flash then go off truck runs but very ruff. He does not remember the code numbers
in order for me to help you will need to have the vehicle scanned again and write the codes down. I dont guess. Guessing doesnt fix vehicles. Data and diagnosis does.
thank you very much. give me a few minutes, thanks
The P1260 code can be set if the Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) has determined a theft condition existed and the engine is disabled or an engine start was attempted using a non-PATS key. This Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) is a good indicator to check the PATS for DTCs. This DTC can also be set when a new Instrument Cluster (IC), Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) or Powertrain Control Module (PCM) is installed without correctly programming either module even if the vehicle is not equipped with PATS.
unfortunately for this code, the only way to get the PATS system to unset is to have an IDS diagnostic tools to unlock it.
Were jumping it now every time it fires the headlights flash and the stops fireing
exactly. thats because the PATS system has it locked out of running. it need to go to a dealer
Ok we figured that and were trying to save some money were not rich to be able to pay that kind of money
i understand, believe me. maybe call around to some shop to see if they have a ford IDS.
So you are a ford mechanic and don't know a go around so we can get this on the trailer
is that an insult? there is nothing you can do to keep the vehicle started. thats what ford intended with the PATS system..works pretty good ................
