SOURCE: code p0460

The P0460 code is set from a fuel circuit malfunction. This can be set by something as simple as the type of fuel you are using, if the sulfur content is too high, or if you refueled with the key on? Have the light reset and refill your tank with Chevron fuel,( Ford was recommending this at one time.), then drive the vehicle for two drive cycles and retest if no light is on. Two drive cycles are two complete warm ups with a six hour cool down between them.You need to reset the onboard monitors and drive cycles are the only way to do it. If the light comes back on and the code is the same, you will need a Ford dealer or a repair facility that is up on it's electrical testing. Hope this helps.

P0460 Fuel Level Sensor Circuit Malfunction.
The fuel level sensor is in the gas tank. Get a Haynes or Chilton Manual to see how to access the tank. You might get lucky and there will be access under the back seat. Otherwise, the gas tank has to come out to get access. The tank and fuel pump are an integrated assembly.

You'll need to have the car scanned and get the OBD II P Code. Most auto parts store will do it for free. That will tell you why the light is on.

Check engine light stays on


code p0460 refers to fuel tank level sensor--circuit malfunction===causes ---wiring---fuel tank level sensor---ECM. However in the Volvo section there is a p1446 code that refers to evaporative emission (EVAP) leak detection pump---signal malfunction====causes wiring--poor connection---EVAP leak detection pump.
Go back to who read the codes and ensure that the right code was told to you.l

I am going to paste a list of potential causes for a p0460. There is a cure for a dirty reader card and Ford recommends CHEVRON TECHRON fuel system cleaner. Run tank low, put in cleaner, use best gas you can find,avoid your frequent brand.

P0460 - Fuel Level Sensor Circuit Malfunction The PCM monitors the fuel level input (FLI) circuit for electrical failure. The test fails when the signal moves outside the minimum or maximum allowable calibrated parameters for a specified fuel fill percentage in the fuel tank. Empty fuel tank
Fuel pump (FP) module stuck open
Incorrectly installed fuel gauge
Damaged instrument cluster
CASE GND circuit open
FLI shorted to VPWR
Damaged PCM
Overfilled fuel tank
Fuel pump (FP) module stuck closed
Damaged fuel gauge
FLI circuit open
FLI circuit shorted to CASE GND or PWR GND
CSE GND shorted to VPWR
Monitor FLI PID and FLI V PID in key ON engine RUNNING. FLI PID at 25% fill (with non matching fuel gauge) and FLI V PID less than 0.90 volts [for FLI PID at 75% fill (with non matching fuel gauge) and FLI V PID greater than 2.45 volts] indicates a hard fault.

I have a 99 town car and the engine light came on and a code came up po460 what is this code can u help


P0460 Fuel Level Sensor A Circuit Malfunction, ford posted this service tip for all 97 to 05 ford vehicles - INTERMITTENT MIL ON WITH DTC P0460 - SERVICE TIP
SOME 1997-2005 VEHICLES MAY EXHIBIT AN INTERMITTENT MALFUNCTION INDICATOR LAMP (MIL) ON WITH DTC P0460 (FUEL LEVEL SENSOR CIRCUIT MALFUNCTION). THIS CONDITION MAY BE CAUSED BY AN IMPROPERLY INSTALLED REMOTE START SYSTEM, AFFECTING THE FLUID LEVEL INPUT (FLI) INFORMATION TO THE PCM. THE CONDITION MAY BE DIFFICULT TO DUPLICATE. TO SERVICE, CHECK FOR AN IMPROPERLY INSTALLED FORD OR AFTERMARKET REMOTE STARTER SYSTEM. THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER OR HEC MUST HAVE POWER TO ALL 'HOT IN RUN' CIRCUITS FOR THE FUEL GAUGE CIRCUIT TO PROPERLY RELAY FLI INFORMATION TO THE PCM (EITHER BY NETWORK COMMUNICATION OR A DIRECT HARDWIRE CIRCUIT
another I have seen addresses the fuel problem just says the tank got over filled, the gas cap is bad, and that the system is clogged due to a poor grade of fuel being used, Ford recommends a Chevron fuel cleaner additive that should improve this problem
