please help to diagnose P2176 P2121 P0500 P0010 P0013 P0365

Post by martinpeter » Wed Nov 08, 2017 2:48 pm

Hi all,
First I`m new with diagnostic. I spent hundreds of pounds in 4 services in Bedford area and nobody is able to fix my car issue. So I bough forscan, run diagnostic and have so many errors. MY ECU has been for test in ECUtesting.com they said no problem with ECU even that I found P060C error again.
Can someone please guys have a look on this output and say what could be a main problem? Car is working fine, no misfire, no issues, but once it gets hot and I stop, then has a problem to start and red icon pop up on dashboard. Like small red wheel. I can drive this car, but this red icon worry me.
Thank you anyone who will have a look and advice.

===DTC P1260===
Code: P1260 - THEFT Detected, Vehicle Immobilized.

Module: Powertrain Control Module

Diagnostic Trouble Code details

THEFT Detected, Vehicle Immobilized.

This DTC may be caused by :

Communications with the IC timing out.

An invalid response from the IC.

A disable message from the IC.

===END DTC P1260===

===DTC P1000===
Code: P1000 - On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) Systems Readiness Test Not Complete

Module: Powertrain Control Module

Diagnostic Trouble Code details

Check of all systems is not complete since last memory clear.

--Possible Causes--
- The vehicle is new from the factory and has not yet been through a complete OBD Drive Cycle.
- The battery or PCM has been disconnected.
- An OBD monitor failure had occurred prior to completion of an OBD Drive Cycle.
- The PCM DTCs have been cleared as part of a service process.

Note: The only way P1000 can be cleared (removed) from memory is when all of the OBD monitors have been successfully completed during normal vehicle operation.

P1000 cannot be cleared from the PCM when: 1. The thermostat is stuck open and a DTC is not generated. 2. There is an open VSS circuit and a DTC is not generated. 3. If the vehicle has a Power Take Off (PTO), the circuit is shorted to VPWR or B+, or the PTO is ON during Self-test.

The purpose of the Diagnostic Trouble Code DTC P1000 is to indicate that not all of the On Board Diagnostics OBD monitors have yet been successfully completed. You may also refer to the OBD Drive Cycle defined under the Powertrain Control/Emission Diagnosis Manual-Diagnostic Methods or the Owner's Manual.

Remember: It is not necessary to remove P1000 from the Powertrain Control Module PCM by driving the vehicle.

I have come across these before on a number of focus. It was always the instrument cluster. Take it out, open it up so as to access the printed circuit board. Sometimes if you clean this carefully with contact cleaner it will work. Look for black spots up close. and i mean up close, they are not large. A quick coat of wd40 or similar and refit. good luck.

Thanks for your advise. I`m going to send Instrument Cluster for rebuild. Same result came from the other forums. So I just hope this will fix the problem finally.

Hi Guys, so summary

1. ECU tested no issues
2. Instrument cluster fully rebuild ( last week)
3. Igni.Coil brand new.
I start and drive without any issue, but, when I stop and try start again problems start, red icon populate and immobilizer start blink.
Battery is not the best, so question is, is worth to buy a new battery please?

Here is actual video if anyone can help gents. There is no service in Bedford which is able to fix that or even properly diagnostic :(

thank you for any other advice.

What are DTCs in IC? In case of instrument cluster troubles (as properly mentioned above, in 90% of cases caused by oxidized main socket pins) not only PCM but also IPC must have a lot of errors, including network ones.

P1260 means there is no link between IPC and PCM, so if IC is rebuilt we guess it is either wire or PCM. Try to touch/move the wire around IC and PCM and look at results.

So finally, problem solved

I take out crankshaft sensor, clean it and put a brand new battery. All problems are gone! finally, no more problems, the car is working fine, no issues so far after a week.
Bedford garages -
1st garage - ECU tested, £70 plus 20 for removing the ECU (+ £35 diagnostic but not found anything)
2nd garage IC re-builded £ 169(+ £35 diagnostic but not found anything)
3rd garage New ignition coil 2x £65(+ £35 diagnostic fount wrong ignition coil)
4th garage New sparks, oil, filters, couple of sensors, even 4 new tyres. £440(+ £35 diagnostic found 1 error P060C, after I showed them output from Fordscan they used proper diag and found same errors)
online advise - New battery with cleaning crankshaft sensor. £ 81 for battery, £10 cleaning the sensor, buying Foscan diag was the best investment.
