Re: wiring harness (audio)

this is more trying to get the 4" to 8" since so many people want to do so. I"m curious why it can't be done so id like to do it. It probably would be easier to get a chinese head unit and get the features working (bluetooth connection) but im determined to see this through. actually, for MY needs, ...

Re: Exhaust smell in cabin. 2014 PI sedan

Has anyone had an exhaust smell in the cabin? I tried to search this forum with no luck there's this thing called at the dealership called "smoke test", i doubt you'll need that test until youve run out of options. what you need is to have the car lifted and the holes plugged. you most likely have ...

Re: Fleet key

are you saying using your car to try to open an interceptor? i dont wanna go to jail, so no. while its possible that an agency can have the entire fleet with the same key, most wont, for the exact reason why you're asking. my buddy already told me the key to his cruiser won't open another cruiser. b...

Re: Poll - What color do i paint the PI?

sorry man, to me those colors are hideous on an interceptor, with the exception of the black. what color is the car now? what colors are the wheels/hubcaps/rims? tinted windows? instead of grabber blue, go dark navy blue. if its not sho or ecooboost with the relevant SHO trims i cant see a stripe lo...

Re: center console ?, also, service manual needed

I just installed center console in my pi, and ran into the same problem with those trim pieces not fitting around the radio, I took some side cutters and simply cut those tabs off the trim part. I’m going to make a custom trim peice to close the gap below the heater controls when you cut the tabs o...

Re: About to buy a sedan....

exhaust/fumes in cabin.
make sure when you drive it, or when you start it and its sitting, you dont get exhaust fumes coming in the cabin. getting that fix, if at all, is a pain in the butt.

Re: 2013 Taurus interceptor radio upgrade

my vehicle radio i believe is not sync. i know its a 4.2" screen, it has no bluetooth, and i assume not sync. That being said, ive seen people upgrade from 4.2" screen to 8" screen (sync 3) successfully. this includes obtaining a new screen, APIM, harnesses, wires, etc. i simply need to know whether...

Re: center console ?, also, service manual needed

so here is my other predicament. The wire from the vehicle does not match the wire from the center console. Is there an adapter I need to get or is that the wrong wire from the vehicle? I can't find another one in the vehicle. I looked at all the write ups and i dont think this was mentioned. And i ...

Re: radio

does anyone know of the part number for the 4" radio that has bluetooth?
my old one doesnt have bluetooth, alternatively i can get a replacement 4" with bluetooth to replace my 4" without bluetooth and i'll be happy with that.
