Question about 2000 Ford Taurus
Indicates basically that self testing was not completed. The vehicle monitors different driving habits etc periodically and this indicates it didn't finish them. Ignore it and keep driving, it will eventually erase itself. Will cause no harm and no reason to be alarmed. Did you change any of the engine electronic controls lately, if so, that may also be what triggered it. Regardless, it has a certain criteria that vehicle must go through to complete it's testing but until then, relax.

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.
