Have code 0463 fuel levelcircut input high what do I look for


There is no module under the dash on your vehicle .
P0463 - Fuel Level Sensor A Circuit High Description: The powertrain control module (PCM) monitors the fuel level input (FLI) circuit for electrical failure. The test fails when the signal moves above the maximum allowable calibrated parameter for a specified fuel fill percentage in the fuel tank. Possible Causes:
  • Fuel pump (FP) module concern
  • Incorrectly installed fuel gauge
  • Damaged instrument cluster
  • FLI shorted to VPWR
  • CASE GND circuit open
  • Overfilled fuel tank
  • Damaged fuel gauge
Diagnostic Aids: See the diagnostic aids for DTC P0460. Application Key On Engine Off Key On Engine Running Continuous Memory Ranger GO to Pinpoint Test HX . All others Refer to the Workshop Manual Section 413-01, Instrument Cluster for fuel level indicator diagnosis.
You start by taking to Dealer or someother qualified repair shop .

2002 ford taurus check engine lite code is po460, a mechanic replaced the fuel pump, still didn't pass inspection......please help!


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.

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

What does this code mean?


P0460 Code - Fuel Level Sensor Circuit Malfunction.

I'm not sure what you mean by you mixed gas, does that mean you switched to a different station or octane level? Does the gas gauge still work fine? As long as it works fine you could keep driving for a few more tanks to see if the problem goes away. If you overfill or run the tank too low it can cause issues with the fuel sender.

When the pump clicks off, you're done filling. Though at 175K miles the fuel sender could just have gone bad. If you start to see symptoms then take it into the shop definitely. About the only thing you could do prior to that is if you're comfortable you could use a digital volt ohm meter (DVOM) and measure the sensor readings at the tank (at the electrical connections).

Good luck.

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.
