1260 code wont start
P1260 - This, basically is indicating that a theft has occurred, and the engine has been disabled.If the engine stalled, during travel, and the code was pulled after the stall, this will indicate the following:
1.A loss of power, or ground wire to the PCM
2.A Faulty PCM power relay
3.A Faulty EEC power diode
4.A Faulty VERF signal.
Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) communicates PCM through instrument cluster to enable or disable vehicle's engine. Within one second after engine start, PCM must receive an enable signal from instrument cluster or engine will be disabled. Along with enable signals, instrument cluster and PCM share messages that confirm security codes shared during initial installation. This shared security data makes instrument cluster and PCM a matched pair, so neither will operate in another vehicle. When system is functioning properly and ignition switch is turned to RUN or START position, THEFT indicator light will turn on for 3 seconds, then turn off. Vehicle will be enabled to start and run. If a problem exists in PATS, THEFT indicator light will stay on or flash continuously.
NOTE_ The best action is to clear the code, by using a diagnostic CPU. Plug the CPU into your in car port, under the dash. Follow the instruction on the CPU display to clear the code. if the engine dose not start after the code is cleared, this will indicate that there are some issues with the PCM, or PATS
