Re: Idle hours - is this high? 2013 PI sedan

6500 is a lot, but there are cars with more. If your car has any patrol history, it's going to have idle hours. My car had 46k miles and 321 idle hours out of a total 1442 hours. If you do the math, that's 1121 moving hours over 46k miles, or an average speed of 41mph (That translates to mostly high...

Fronts should fit.

Rears do not due to PI crash structures.

Re: OEM Taurus Console Questions - for PI install

My plate is silver and it scratches like a mofo. Mine is off at the powder coater's right now getting color matched and shot in the same color as the adjacent cup holders and accessory plate, but in a bit more durable coating. FWIW, mine is a '13 and it's silver on the top, but the base part is blac...

Re: 2013 PI option questions

Is there an automatic headlight option on the Interceptor? If there is, how does the 3-position switch work with that? Can you still turn the lights off completely? Will the headlight position be overridden by the auto? Oh, and if it has this can someone post the ForScan code to enable it? Can you ...

Re: New 2016 Police Interceptor Sedan owner

If the lights don't come on when you open the door, then "dark mode" is enabled on the car. You need to use Forscan to disable it or the dealer can do it to. Then when you open the door, interior lights come on and parking lights will turn on. Another option, pin 13 in the "14-way front power and v...

Re: Rear seat conversion - PI sedan

Just started my rear seat swap and front console install on 2014 taurus interceptor, did you replace the rubber flooring with carpet? Cool. Things to note: - The PIS rear seat will require a rear seat from a PIS, removal of the 75mph cross bracing to install a civilian seat, or hogging out the civv...

Re: Anyone help identify these rear seats?

You also have to remove the PIS rear-impact cross beam or the civilian seats will not fit over it. This will drop your rear impact rating to civilian level (as opposed to 75mph of the police version). I've been researching this for a while, so if you have any Q's, PM me and I'll do my best to help....

Re: Anyone help identify these rear seats?

Regular civilian Taurus cloth seats. You can swap them in, everything bolts in, but you have to harvest all the hardware from the donor car, and the side bolster panels, because they are 60/40 split folding, which PIS are not, but other than that, you're good to go. You also have to remove the PIS r...

Update: Dealer diagnosed this as a slow leak through the bottom seam of the radiator. The radiator will be replaced. I lucked out on this one. Hopefully, the WP will continue to behave.

Re: 2013 Taurus slowly losing coolant

If you don't see coolant on the driveway, it's not likely good, my friend. It can be many things, but slow and steady loss like you describe is usually an indication of a weeping water pump. Do a search for ford 3.5L water pump failure and you'll get the picture. A weeping water pump is not generall...

Yes and you lose the comfort, to me its worth losing the safety to gain back seat passengers who aren't bitching at you while you drive. Yeah, and let's keep it in perspective.
