How to fix error code P1000 for Ford F-150 with engine 4.6L of year 2006
Error codes: 4.6L
Knowledge level: I know little about cars
Help needed: Please help me find out what is going on and how to fix it.
P1000 FORD - On Board Diagnostic System Readiness Test Not Complete - Possible causes - The vehicle is new from the factory. - Battery or Powertrain Control Module (PCM) had recently been disconnected. - An OBD monitor failure occurred before completion of an OBD drive cycle. - PCM Detected Trouble Codes (DTC) have recently been cleared with a scan tool. - This code just means that the PCM didn't complete a full diagnose cycle, and is set when the battery have been disconnected, codes have been cleared or sometimes even when the vehicle have been towed. No scanner it's necessary to clear the code, driving the vehicle for a few minutes (sometimes more) to complete the diagnose cycle will clear the code. Clearing the code will reset the light unless other codes present.
There is an another issue going on not just this code '1000. Clear the KAM and start the vehicle re scan.
Bottom line, it hasn't completed scanning all the sensors, just drive it for a couple days and it'll gi away
Thank you for your answer !!!
I have a 98 Ford expedition I'm looking for a code p 1000 that came upI think it's to reset the main memory can somone help me
Answer is already given. This code just means that the PCM didn't complete a full diagnose cycle, and is set when the battery have been disconnected, codes have been cleared or sometimes even when the vehicle have been towed. No scanner it's necessary to clear the code, just drive vehicle for about 30 miles to complete the diagnose cycle will clear the code.
I have driven 200 miles and the P1000 is still there. I had the ABS sensor replaced in November it is now January. There are no other codes.
Bullshit answer. Drove almost 2000 miles and still will not read. Mechanics are lost. My nephew said needs a new computer. Rearwipe Ford should know their worthless vehicles enough to tell EXACTLY the problem when this code comes up.
Me too Paul had my abs replaced and wondered if that was cause. It all B.S. EPA and all this commie constrol needs to be dismantled.
I have the same code but my f 150 passed emission rest so, repaire is complete.
2000 ford expedition, P1000 powertrain control module Rom error,. crank but no spark and no pulse of injector at all,. anyone can help me in ths problem?
Did you ever figure this out?
Having same code but truck won't start. It's the only code I'm getting on my ford f150 2004
You have to perform a "drive cycle". This will clear the code faster than driving all around for hundreds of miles. This is the sequence your computer is looking for: http://www.obdii.com/drivecycleford.html

It's 2019 buy a code reader (about cost of a lunch) ELM327. Use it to clear the computer Keep Alive Memory (KAM) forget wasting time doing "driving cycle".
In Fords, you can’t just clear the P1000 code because it’s not a true DTC. It’ll just keep showing up as soon as you do another code scan. You unfortunate have to go through a drive cycle. Ford’s drive cycle is very specific and I’d recommend googling it. If you have an advanced scanner, you can see which ODBII tests have not completed (such as catalyst or HEGO cycles). Then you can look up the specific drive cycle you still need to do. For example Catalyst cycle need to be smooth stop and go traffick at speeds between 25mph to 45mph for 10 minutes while HEGO cycle requires steady 40mph for 4 minutes (for Fords). Usually just driving it for a day or two can clear the codes, but if it isn’t, then look up the drive cycle and see if you’re daily commute isn’t skipping a drive cycle, for example if you just drive freeway and no stop and go traffic or vise versa.
I have a 04 Ford explorer p1000 is showing. But my vehicle will not start. It turns over but no fire. Any suggestions on what it could be?
Check your air filter. If it's white and you can see light pass through, then check spark with a tool so you don't accidentally pop your CPU. Voice of experience, you CAN frag the CPU if the spark plugs fire without being adequately grounded. If good, check fuel pressure. If that's good too, then it could be timing (loose chain?) or bad compression.
Roy, goofball answer...sometimes a car battery can be just strong enough to crank the engine but not strong enough to run all the electronics as well. Have you tried to jump start to rule out the possibility of a weak battery?
My ABS don’t look like a washboard anymore, what should I do
OBD system readiness test not complete.........this cord What is the reason
Look up. Clear the KAM then do a drive cycle.
I have a Ford Crown Victoria P.I. with th same issue but the code usually means you fuel injector is not receiving fuel properly. It's something to be address but first try fueling your V8 with 89 octane & make it a habit. Cleaning the intake will help as well. In the meantime, save up the funds to replace the computer module. Most of anything these are hindered by emissions codes to regulate fuel flow but it also confuses the mainframe of the computer when habits break. It's to be addressed but it's not dire.
