    I have a P0460 code and (thinking the same) I dropped the tank and replaced the sender unit (making fuel tanks for Ford made me know enough to be dangerous).

    The same code (P0460) is coming up. Any suggestions?

Code p0460 is a fuel level sending unit problem. It will not make you fail an emisions test. The fuel sender is the problem. Your guage is irratic at times. you need a fuel sender replaced in tank.

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.

SOURCE: car trouble

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.

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

2004 Sebring failed the emissions testing


Probably not a cheap fix.
The car will not pass the test if the light is on during the test.
The light is on when the computer has a problem that will affect emissions or performance.
You would need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes then fix the problem. Once the problem is fixed and the code is erased, the light should stay off.
