What is a P1000 code?

Last Updated: Nov 20, 2018 04:29PM NST
P1000 is a special code found on Fords and some Ford subsidiary vehicles (Volvo, Jaguar, etc), if you read this code with your BlueDriver it is not indicative of a problem with your vehicle and shouldn't be a cause for concern.

A P1000 means that your vehicle's emissions monitors (or smog checks) are not complete - either because the battery has been recently disconnected or codes have been cleared with a scan tool. This code is meant to let you know that your vehicle isn't ready for a smog check yet, and will need to be driven under various conditions so the engine computer can determine whether each test has passed or failed.

If you do read a P1000 on your car you should not clear your codes in an attempt to remove it as each 'clear codes' command will reset all smog checks, extending how long the P1000 will stay active.
