My trim is loose, looks like it was taped on from factory. I was thinking of yanking it off just to see what wires were behind it, if any.

Re: New kid in town

Also what are your engine hours? You may need to change the coolant pump soon Engine Hrs - 6690 Idle Hours - 3962 Based on my back of the bar napkin maff - that's about 60% idle time. yeesh. Based on Ford Fleet where 1 hr of idle = 33 miles, I am looking at 130,746 miles +the 140k miles already on ...

Re: Has anyone bought this tesla style screen?

My first concern with this would be Android 6 - Marshmallow as released like in 2015? For my comfort level I would only consider the latest Android OS which is 8. I like the idea of the Tesla screen - but knowing how finicky these things tend to be be, I'd be more comfortable with dedicated buttons ...

Re: Keypad on Door

Interestingly enough - my 2013 PI came with a plastic card that has the car keycode on it - but the panel does not light up or respond to presses.

More info later when i take the door panel off to install sound deadener and new speakers.

it may be coincidence - no light for the first few days until a few hours after i put Seafoam in the tank.

Following a youtube video by Scotty somebody, I ran a gallon of lacquer thinner through with 1/2 a tank...Well, it worked for me with no negative effects.

YMMV
you're braver than me. my 2013 just started throwing the P0420 code

True perspectives.

Getting dealers to respond is near impossible. All the above may be valid but only up to a point...Many 2018’s have been on lots 350+ days now and are still listed around $22K. fleet depts are more likely to respond than the regular dealership sales folks - that being said, the majority of tower sa...

Re: 2015 Taurus AWD - Alignment "changes" under acceleration

With a front wheel drive car, sounds like a bad motor mount to me - though I could be wrong. You may want to run a Carfax on it if you already haven't. Just go to Ebay and buy one for like $3. there's some free sites on the interwebs but they don't always give you all reported accidents. https://vin...

Pro Tips for Car Buying: In no particular order (from a former industry sales trainer): If buying from Ford (or other major mfg) try obtaining a FLEET NUMBER. Back in the day, just having this number was worth a minimum of $500 https://www.fleet.ford.com/get-started/eligibility-documentation/ https...

Re: First test ride

You would either need to remove that bar like I did, or cut out the foam on the rear seat bottom to make the seat fit over the bar. As far as the ac for the rear seats. It’s very simple. When installing the center console there is a duct that is capped off under the panel where your 12v outlets are...

Re: New kid in town

If you go with a civi console, you'll have zero fitment issues with the car navi unit. I had to do some trimming to retain my PI cover... Mine is a model M276, only has Android 4.4. I'm jealous if they have an 8.0 version now! You can read up on them at forums.roadnav.com. Mine is the S160 version....
