Re: SEL Radio Upgrade & add backup camera

Yes. You should be able to add backup to your existing system. Hardware and software (forscan) upgrades required.

Lots of threads out there on this as Jake says.

Re: 2015 Interceptor Complete interior swap

1) 8" sync - if your PIS wasn't a sync car, I don't believe anyone has successfully upgraded to the factory sync 8" system. I don't watch as closely as I might have a few years ago, but we've only seen aftermarket options (and not very good options, at that). 2) Console is a direct bolt in. Wiring i...

Re: 2010 Ford Taurus LT ELECTRICAL ISSUES

I would be looking for a grounding issue given those symptoms, but it's impossible to diagnose over the internet.

These really are (unfortunately) the times to take it to the dealer for proper diagnoses.

appears that you need DG1Z-54061A16-AA, but it would be best for you to look at the diagram and determine if that's the part you're talking about. Also......be sure to order the right color!

Re: How wide can you go? Wheels

You could really go as wide as you want - depends on how much you want to do to make them work ($$$). I run the mustang track pack 19x9's - the rears are no problem, but fronts do rub at full lock without spacers. Of course, all oversized options are 'run at your own risk' and you should measure out...

Re: speaker recommendation

just search for 'speaker' in the top right search bar. lots of previous information with recommendations on brands/good deals. Generally, any 5x7 or 6x8 will work just fine in the doors......your rear deck upgrade is made easier/harder by what is currently in place for deck speakers

Re: connector name/type

I can't see inside to determine the pin count, but this is the kind of place that should help you locate what you need:

the cable just has the sheathing pulled back and wiring pinned for the plug. Finding the plug will tell you which pin type you need.

Re: Hood Switch Harness Installation

That's very odd - are you sure there's not a harness? I believe that all PI's came wired for the hood switch. It's especially odd that your vehicle has a switch but no harness. I suspect that it was disconnected at the time of downfitting before sale. I just had my civilian 16 explorer apart so I'm ...

I suspect they are. the seat internals/sensors have changed b...

Re: center console wire harness

the civi center console comes with a harness. unless someone else has found one or the 2016's are different, there's no direct plug in connector on the PI so you just cut/solder/shrink your way to power/ground. The PI pigtails have always hot, ignitition, and door power options so you can make your ...

Re: Driver seat too close 2008 Taurus power seats

There are a handful of companies that do seat extenders - I don't see any for your specific model/year though. If you're handy or have a local fabricator you trust, there's not a lot to them.

If you're looking to take on that endeavor (and I don't know that I've seen anyone successfully converting a non-sync vehicle over to sync), why wouldn't you just buy a civi harness and console with sync module?
