Re: New to me 2014 Taurus PI. What should I watch out for?

Things change overtime, always new generation of police officers coming in, most of them are nice about it. Antennas wouldn't get you in trouble, but the PB and lighting will definitely turn heads. Besides, if you're in a CVPI, they wouldn't care. 90-95% of all agencies in Canada have already phased...

Re: Has Anyone Recreated the Factory Center Console?

I agree with this, if you need just the lights, siren as well as the radio, install the radio in the arm-rest center console, and then get a siren controller, wire it to a set of small rocker switches, same thing for the lighting. Detective units in my area utilize it this way, regardless of the pol...

Re: New to me 2014 Taurus PI. What should I watch out for?

Just add a kill switch, and you're fine! I added a inline breaker between the power line of your emergency equipment (mine is from the cencom to the rear power point, added additional inline breaker with extended power line) to the console where it's hidden but accessible, so just flip the breaker, ...

Re: New to me 2014 Taurus PI. What should I watch out for?

Lmao, no lol. But if you’re driving your cruiser from US to Canada, I would be too interested in what the CBSA border officers to the federal RCMP would think 😂 But with other police agencies in Canada, depending where you’re going, it’s a hit and miss honestly. I did drive mine up a few times, only...

Re: 2013 Police Interceptor questions

As for the seats, it can be done by changing out the interceptor seats for any of the civilian ones. However 2 issues will occur to make it fit. One would be to cut out the foam on the civilian seats to shape the rear crash bar that is in place below the seats as the civilian vehicles don't have tha...

Re: Enabling Ford PI Sedan Oil Maintenance Reminder Alert?

Do you know how its enabled? Via As-Built data in ForScan or via IDS? Does anyone know if the 2013+ FPIS has an oil maintenance reminder alert (alerts when your oil change is coming up) that most vehicles has these days? I've heard some do have that option, but most don't and will need to be enabled...

Re: FPIS Speedometer Instrument Gauge Cluster Swap

Shoot, you gotta remove all the IDS installation and do it again. Remove all the temp files as well. Then follow below, and it should work. First the Ford IDS software, then when its done, reboot the computer. Log back in but don't touch the IDS yet. Then install the VXDIAG driver. When that is done...

Re: FPIS Speedometer Instrument Gauge Cluster Swap

—Just remember to keep the battery charged up and on constant charging before starting the update/installation via IDS, as it’s 100% better safe than sorry when it cuts out, which will more likely make you get a new module.

You’re welcome & all of them! Having IDS gives you FULL dealer programming! Installing + updating all the modules, at your ease with IDS. Even allows you to program your key fobs/PATS.

Re: FPIS Speedometer Instrument Gauge Cluster Swap

You have to flash the module via IDS, there's absolutely no other way! That's the same VCX NANO I bought, from Amazon with 1-Day shipping. I'll admit, getting the IDS to work properly is the issue, but once I got it to work, the key is to follow the instructions step-by-step, and you're gold! If you...
