Welcome to the Club. You'll find all the members very helpful, as long as all information is correct.

Now, Code 1270... Are you talking about Diagnostic Codes? If so, what year Taurus/Sable. I see a few listed on your signature... Some more infor on what exactly you want to know would be helpful.

My book lists code 1270 to be "Engine RPM or Vehicle Speed Limiter Reached".

The book title is "OBD II Diagnostic Fault Codes" by Peter David, published by Kotzig. I'm not sure I trust this reference, so take it with a grain of salt.

Anyone else have a different definition of this code?

I just got this code on my '04 with 158k miles.....what caused it and how do I fix it? I already cleared the code this morning, but would like to know what else should be done, if anything at all.

Been over the 100 mph lately? Speed limiter is set to tires speed ratings.
If not I'd guess a flakey VSS could kick out a too high speed reading.

P1270 - Engine Revolutions Per Minute Or Vehicle Speed Limit Reached

So if your car hasn't been abused lately, I would suspect a bad sensor somewhere.
