OK, I have a new one here. Today I was driving home and had to smash a Durachoke, and after my quick run I noticed my truck was not shifting quite right. So, when I got home, I used my H&S to check for codes. To my surprise there were no tranny codes....However, my motor threw the P1260 code (P1260 code:theft detected, engine dissabled)? My truck never shut down....I cleared the code and all is well now?

I searched high and low here and on other forums. All I can find is most people who had the same code could not start / restart thier trucks. I had no problem?

Any ideas? :dunno:

Thanks,
Turbo Kidd

I have seen this when someone opens the door with the window down from the outside in. Or use the key pad to open it with ot running.

If I remember correctly that code is one of two things. 1st the unusual reason. I believe it would happen because of the way the tunes had to override the speed limiter and that would cause the Theft code. The more common cause for that code is Fords "PATS" security system.

I've attached FORDS procedure to fix your issue if its a PATS problem.

Good luck,

Dom

? I'm not sure what you mean? Seems like I asked a fairly straight question, did I miss something?
Yeah he's implying that you stole the truck and thats why you have that code. :tard: I thought it was mildly amusing :D

No problem. :) I was so mad with my truck, I looked right passed the humor. On a serious side, my truck seems to be fine? I have been checking for codes every time I park it, and so far so good. I wish I knew what caused it to throw that P1260 code in the first place?

To all who have given me feedback and jokes, thank for your help. :D

*Note: I'm still curious, so if anyone else has some input, please share.

Thanks!

No telling with a ford man. I used to have an 03 Eddie Bauer Expedition that would just tell me doors were ajar or the rear hatch was open periodically. I'd pull over and slam whichever one it told me and I could hear the truck laughing when I got back in.

The P1260 strikes again.....My truck is making 1 PSI of boost at a dead stop, which I know is not that big of a deal. However, I decided to check for codes and the P1260 was there again. I cleared it and now all is good again and the truck started right up?

Does anyone have any input on why this code may have been thrown again after all this time?

I have no backround on this code but have you tried a different key, maybe yours could be getting somewhat worn?

Funny you should bring that up....I was thinking the same thing. My truck has only done this twice....Once in 2012 when I first started this thread and then the other day.....both for no reason :dunno:

it might not hurt to program back to stock and then reload your tune.
Thanks for the idea, however I already did that. Who knows maybe it will help? It hasn't happened since I cleared the code.
