P1460 MERCURY Possible Symptoms

  • Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

P1460 MERCURY Meaning

Monitors the A/CCR circuit output from the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). The test fails when the PCM grounds the A/CCR circuit, excessive current draw is detected on the A/CCR circuit; or, with the A/CCR circuit not grounded by the PCM, voltage is not detected on the A/CCR circuit (the PCM expects to detect VPWR voltage coming through the A/CCR relay coil to the A/CCR circuit).
