Customer Question
Hi, I am getting...

Hi, I am getting DTC faults P1000 and P1260. Not sure why this happened, I was able to start it a few weeks ago after being away for a month, but then I let it sit for 2 weeks flat battery, recharged and car still wont start, and I get these codes.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

No

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2010 ford falcon fg xr6

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Falcon yourself? What have you tried so far?

Well, after having a flat battery, I recharged it and hooked it back up.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Yes, I am unsure how I can complete the drive cycle process and clear the codes if I cant start the car.
