Re: Is a db3 bypass needed for remote start install on a fpis?

That’s a good idea to have done. I am having enough trouble trying to figure out how or who can do forscan for my rear windows and interior lights (dark mode). However I really like the remote from this viper unit I picked up. What key fob did you use? If you poke around the threads, you'll see a d...

Re: Rear Wheel Hub and Bearing Assembly

2011 SEL - At 195K miles the left rear bearing finally failed (noise). Repair was pretty straight forward DIY, along the lines of changing brakes. Dropped a YouTube video for those interested in seeing what the job entails: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YA6fFHwOPDw Fantastic video work. A great h...

Re: Is a db3 bypass needed for remote start install on a fpis?

I simply enabled remote start via Forscan after adding a $20 hood switch and a Keyfob. I believe it's a function on the 2013+ models, it just needed to be enabled and a hood switch installed (so it couldn't "light up" when someone was working in the engine bay)... Was that not an option for you? Th...

Re: Automatic Climate Control?

So the answer, for anyone looking to do this... Go to the junkyard and find the panel with the heater controls. Not only is it plug and play for the heated seats, it's also plug and play for fully automatic HVAC!!! As soon as I connected it, the temps came up on the screen and the auto control worke...

I have not seen anyone do this - I just added switches to run the heating element in the seats.
Any chance you could let me know how you wired these switches?

Automatic Climate Control?

Has anyone tried to install a center bezel with automatic climate control? I bought some seats with heat, but the only center bezel I can find with seat heater controls also have auto climate control. I would love to have auto climate control, as well, but I'm sure it's not as easy as swapping that ...

Re: 2011 Limited seats in 2016 SE

My airbag light was on afterI installed my new seats (the car they were pulled from had been in a crash). I have a fancy Foxwell scanner that does SRS, and I was shown two B1193 codes (Crash event storage full). I was able to clear the codes with the scanner and they haven't returned.

Re: Paint Restoration

I got mine from Cecil township in Pittsburgh, and you can see all the decals on the side and on the back and the police numbers are still on top, they did a horrible job. I don’t have a buffer so I will most likely take it to a shop It's about $55 for a buffer from harbor freight and $10 for a medi...

Re: 2011 Limited seats in 2016 SE

In my quest for seats, I think I saw memory seats... Aren't the memory buttons on the seat itself? If that's the case, the brains are probably built into the seats and hopefully you won't have issues. Let us know how it goes! I've attached a photo of my setup. It makes the car feel luxurious now :-)...

Re: 2011 Limited seats in 2016 SE

I just swapped the seats in my 2013 police Taurus for some nice leather ones out of a 2016 SEL. They were 100% plug and play. Unfortunately I don't get the heated seats, but everything else works perfectly. Additionally, they were the easiest seats I've ever swapped in a car. Four 13mm bolts and a q...

Paint Restoration

Hello all, Just thought I would share a tip for our old cop cars... I've been buying and driving old cop cars for years, and I'm always annoyed by the ghosting of the vinyl lettering left behind by the departments. Plus, these cars typically weren't treated as well as a personal car, so they've rare...

I cut a piece of plastic that I bought to snap in between the clips and underneath of the console shifter trim bezel. It’s a perfect fit.
Awesome, thanks for the suggestion... It came out very nice.

Here is the gap I’m talking about.
Reviving an old thread, but what it the filler in the floor shifter area? I'm looking to do the same for mine.

Re: Has anyone bought this tesla style screen?

I just installed this Tesla radio. For the most part it’s great, however there is no SIM card option available so you have to use your phone as a WiFi hotspot. And there is no way to activate rear defrost. Besides that it is awesome and far cheaper than the only other way more expensive option. Awe...

Re: 2013 PI No Radio Display (But Radio Works!)

Just as a follow up in case someone else has the same issue...

I replaced the four inch screen with one I picked up off eBay and it resolved my issue.
