98 CV. 180k. Starts and runs. Let idle till warm, engine stalls. Scan for codes, P1000 (should not have, system ready along time ago)
P1260 theft detected. Key off for several minutes and will restart. Let idle again, will stall but will restart immediately.

  1. If you drive it instead of idle it, will it remain running?
  2. Any aftermarket electronics on the vehicle?

It will have same condition if driven. No aftermarket additions.
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 2 years ago

Thanks, ***** ***** system can not shut down the vehicle once already running, so thats not the cause for the stalling. Do you have the ability to monitor the fuel pressure when it stalls and will not start, to see if there is a pump or relay issue we need to address.

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

If your confused on why or how to rate me, let me know.

I'm only paid from the deposit you've made when you rate 3,4, or 5 stars.

Follow up/Reply as many times as needed before or after rating.

I clear out the P1260 I didn't restart the car and allow it to run until it stalls. The P1260 code will again be stored. So it appears that somehow it is shutting the car down after it is running in generating the attempted theft code again after it is running.
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 2 years ago

I can only find 2 tech reports of a car that can start with a 1260 code and both state to replace the PCM. Would you like the Ford diag steps for this code?

Thanks Chris

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
