It depends on how you drive the truck. The computer has lost its memory, usually from disconnecting the battery. Once that happens, the truck has to be driven in various conditions before the memory is relearned.
In most cases, you have to do some highway and city driving AFTER the engine is up to normal temp. Usually 40 or 50 miles of each is enough. And not all in the same trip either.

a p1000 code means that the system has not run all checks since last memory erase. in other words after a code erase this code is set until the car has been driven for 2 drive cycles which is 20 to 25 miles then 20 to 25 miles again.

SOURCE: how do you repair an

This is pretty common. You have a broken upper lock actuator. the FORD base part number is 3E723.
This is a plastic arm with gear teeth on it that has a steel pin in one end of it that connects it to the lower lock actuator (which actuates the ignition switch). It works sort of like a rack and pinion with the ignition lock cylinder. When you rotate the Lock cylinder, the teeth in the upper actuator engage with the teeth on the lock cylinder gear. This makes the lock actuator slide up and down inside the steering column. The problem is that the steel pin falls out of the thing and causes the problem you are now experiencing. When this happens, the upper lock actuator will not pull the lower actuator back up the steering column and turn the ignition switch off.

The part only costs about $9.00. The problem is that the steering column must be removed from the vehicle and completely disassembled to replace it. Unless you have been into many steering columns, I do not recommend trying this at home - especially if your truck is equipped with tilt steering.

If you look at the diagram below, the part that the person is holding in his hand is the part we are talking about. You can see at the lower (rounded) end of it where the steel pin goes in. The pin is "moulded" into the part and comes with the part listed above.

Engine misses

Hi there:
This means testing incomplete and the car needs to be driven to clear this code. Really this isn't a hard code, the causes of a P1000 include:
  • The battery or PCM has been disconnected
  • The diagnostic trouble codes have been cleared
  • An OBD monitor concern occured before completion of the drive cycle

Although this may be considered a common Ford DTC, it's very minor. You in fact can safely ignore this code and it should go away as part of normal driving, you do not need to clear this code (as it may not actually turn off the MIL). If you want to the code to clear itself, faster, run through the Ford Drive Cycle. However, if you have other trouble codes, the MIL will stay on as there are other issues.

Hope this helps.

Sounds like it's the controller for the glow plugs, also, if the first glow plug in line from the controller is bad it will effect all the others. I've had this same sitituation, mine turned out to be the controller.

2004 ford f-250 superduty 5.4l trouble code p1000

P1000 OBD II - Monitor Testing Not Completed
This code means that the reader was unable to complete the test. It doesn't mean there is anything wrong, kinda. It probably is due to the chip. If your state inspection requires a clean test of the system and they actually put a code reader on it for certification- you'll fail. If they don't require a clean code, you'll be just fine.

Any time power to the pcm is interrupted you will see the P 1000 code. That's all it is. So, if take your vehicle for an OBD smog check it will fail if there is a P 1000 code, because the presumption is that the battery had been disconnected to temporarily clear some other code.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

What is drive cycle miles to make ready emission test on ford f150 5.0 engine?

a drive cycle is not measured in miles driven but in the type of driving done, here is a ford drive cycle procedure to clear the not ready code.

Ford Motor Company Driving Cycle Description of OBDII Drive Cycle
The following procedure is designed to execute and complete the OBDII monitors and to clear the Ford P1000, I/M readiness code. To complete a specific monitor for repair verification, follow steps 1 through 4, then continue with the step described by the appropriate monitor found under the "OBDII Monitor Exercised" column. When the ambient air temperature is outside 4.4 to 37.8°C (40 to 100° F), or the altitude is above 2438 meters (8000 feet), the EVAP monitor will not run. If the P1000 code must be cleared in these conditions, the PCM must detect them once (twice on some applications) before the EVAP monitor can be "bypassed" and the P1000 cleared. The Evap "bypassing" procedure is described in the following drive cycle.
The OBDII Drive Cycle will be performed using a scan tool. Consult the instruction manual for each described function. NOTE: A detailed description of a Powertrain Control Module (PCM) Reset is found in this section, refer to the table of contents.
Drive Cycle Recommendations:
  1. Most OBDII monitors will complete more readily using a "steady foot" driving style during cruise or acceleration modes. Operating the throttle in a "smooth" fashion will minimize the time required for monitor completion.
  2. Fuel tank level should be between 1/2 and 3/4 fill with 3/4 fill being the most desirable.
  3. The Evaporative Monitor can only operate during the first 30 minutes of engine operation. When executing the procedure for this monitor, stay in part throttle mode and drive in a smooth fashion to minimize "fuel slosh".

For best results, follow each of the following steps as accurately as possible:

Fault code P1000 [18,2,10,0],Ford Fiesta 2005

P1000 means that you or someone has disconnected the battery,and the car has not been driven far / long enough for the computer to relearn its stratagies.
Engine light could be the fault of the speed sensor, or wiring to the sensor.
