P1460 Meaning

For applications that use a normally open relay to control the A/C clutch, the following description applies to the A/C clutch relay control circuit.

Monitors the Wide Open Throttle A/C Cutoff (WAC) circuit output from the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). The test fails if: When the PCM grounds the WAC circuit, excessive current draw is detected on the WAC circuit; or with the WAC circuit not grounded by the PCM, voltage is not detected on the WAC circuit (the PCM expects to detect VPWR voltage coming through the WAC relay coil to the WAC circuit).
