Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.
The 1460 code is a immobilizer code, this is why the vehicle will not start, the fuel and spark is not activated by the ECU. The ECU has to be reset using a tech 2 scan tool, this is the only way to get around this.
