2003-2004 Ford Crown Victoria Factory Service Bulletin OBDII Code P0460

For some Ford vehicles.

P0460 can be caused by the installation of aftermarket equipment such as remote starter systems and auxiliary fuel tanks.

Ford offers a remote starter system which is recommended. If the vehicle has an aftermarket remote starter system, it would need to be removed / disabled before diagnostics for P0460 can be started. Auxiliary fuel tanks that continuously replenish the vehicles main tank will cause a P0460. Customers that replenish the vehicles fuel tank from the auxiliary fuel tank while the key is on and engine is running, can set P0460. For vehicles with an auxiliary fuel tank, it is recommended not to use the gravity / continuous fill style auxiliary fuel tanks. It is recommended to add fuel to the vehicles main tank with the key off.
