Water tanks in doors?

My LF and RR doors slosh when you close them after a good rain. I'm guessing the wiper seal at the bottom of the window opening.

Anyone else?

Re: Red strap behind RR seatback.

The plot thickens... "In case you were wondering, the bottom cushions latch into two plastic parts on the floor that have a little release lever. The backs have two bolts on each side to remove (13mm & 15mm) on the corners. Then you need to somehow find the two red fabric tethers that release the up...

Red strap behind RR seatback.

It seems to release half of the seatback for removal...but I only have one, so can't remove the seatback.

Anybody else have this?

Re: 2015 - Possible Water Pump Issue

Yep, it's the pump. Figure $1400 to $1800 for the dealer to do, about 60 bucks if you do it yourself.
No local shop wanted to touch mine, so I HAD to take it to the dealer. Don't ignore this, or you will be needing a new engine when that pump starts leaking internally and dumps coolant in your engine.

Re: Police Wiring

Page 8 of the manual shows a grille lamp output on the 14 pin connector under the center dash. Maybe try that as your power source?

Re: Connector Pigtail Part Number

Hi, I'm looking for the "pigtail adapter" for lack of a better word, that plugs into it, and has 14 wires coming out that can be tapped. Can't seem to find the option for this specific 14-way options connector. The other two "Front Power" connectors have this "Inline Wire Harness" available, see th...

Re: Ac inop

Leakage is the main one. Compressor clutch is the second. BTW, clutch won't engage if there is no refrigerant, so have it checked for leaks first.

Re: How wide can you go? Wheels

Rule of thumb, 10mm per inch. Example;

245/55/18(stock)
255/45/19
265/35/20


This keeps you close to stock widths while allowing larger diameter.

Trailer Wiring?

Hey All,

Wondering what those who tow did for wiring. All the Taurus kits say "Without Police Package".
Everything is readily accessable, so I don't think it will be a difficult job to wire, I just want to know what others have done.

Thanks!

Re: How do you reset pursuit mode?

Then I can't help. Everything I read says that this is how you do it. My PI, you have to brake real hard, then it downshifts and chirps the tires, and I'm in pursuit mode.

Or, you could just cut the wires, solder them together, and put some heatshrink on there.

Remove the negative battery cable for a few minutes. That will reset the ecu.

That's how I did it, if there's an easier way, let us know.
I found an easier way.

Take two narrow plastic trim tools, position them at 9 and 3 on the larger outer bezel, and pop it right off. Swap switch, and pop it right back in.

Re: Keypad on Door

There is a button module and wires behind my trim piece. So the physical stuff is there, it just needs the software side of things activated.
