Re: Missing options on Sync on 2015 Taurus SHO

As an FYI these options have nothing to do with SYNC.

The 16 Taurus gets a digital speedo in the cluster but not before that. Not sure if the TPMS readout was added in 16/17 or not. AWD display can be added by programming changes to the instrument cluster. Achieved with IDS or similar software.

Re: 2013 PI radio issues

Checking the ground is a great suggestion. The ground for the ACM is on the center console hump on the right (passenger) side forward of where the console plate and dash area would meet. Probably a grounding stud or bolt there with a few grounds going to it.

Re: 2013 PI radio issues

Either you have a wiring problem or the ACM is shot. Of the two, based on your description of what is going on, my first guess would be the ACM is shot.

Re: Adding navigation?

I would suspect most dealers do not have the know how to do this as ford does not officially support upgrading.

Re: Can you add different apps

They had big plans for MFT many of which never were developed because of the stability issues they had to deal with to make just the basics work right.

Re: 2013+ Digital Speedometer update

Its a little more difficult than a copy and paste of some files. I could probably do it but you would have to pull it from the car and send it to me so I could upgrade it on my bench.

Re: 2013+ Digital Speedometer update

It may be possible to convert the same style civi cluster to that of a PI with forced firmware. They must be of the same design, (two analog gauges on the ends). This won't be possible with normal ford software though.

Re: 2013 police interceptor turn signals

The car had the wiring for the PTW setup. Park/Turn/Warn That is what the circled connectors are for in the first pic. In the very first pic I see a connector at 12 o'clock. That is your Turn Signal/Parking Light connector. Ford makes a short harness that connects to that which has the normal style ...

Re: Digital Speedometer on 2013 Taurus?

No, a dealer won't be able to do that regardless if the cluster would even support the new firmware. That is a whole other issue.

Re: 2013 Taurus Limited Factory Amp Location

If you have the non Sony stereo system it does not have an amplifier. You would have to catch the wires at the back of the cd player which is known as the ACM. It contains the am/fm receiver, Sirius receiver and CD player. You could also try to get the wires along their run to the speakers.

That is MyKey. Is the key/fob you are using programmed as a MyKey and not administrator.

Re: No Headlights or front Turns. 13 PI Sedan

C2280E is the connector at the BCM with the low beam wires...pins 1 and 2 as you mentioned before. They run straight through to connectors C1021A (pin 2) and C1041A(pin 2) at the headlamp assemblies. Sounds like the wires were cut somewhere unless the BCM is bad. Have you checked that mysterious 4 c...

Re: 2013 Police Interceptor Sedan Hitch?

I pulled an older 17 foot bass boat when I had my SHO and had no issues. With all the extra cooling I see no reason why anyone would have a problem pulling a trailer on an AWD PI, especially the ecoboost. Just because Ford doesn't publish official tow rating for a vehicle doesn't mean it can't tow a...

Re: 2011 Taurus rear view camera blue screen and blank

Your camera likely needs replacement and the gears in the sun shade have worn out. Most people just disconnect the electrical connector to the sun shade.

It certainly does have a temp gauge. Its not analog though and is selected through the menus as mentioned earlier.
