New 2016 Police Interceptor Sedan owner

Post by Sterling_Ceptor » Sun Dec 25, 2016 8:42 pm

Greetings!

I come here from a popular Ford website for panther platform vehicles. :D

I noticed a few folks on here who also made their way to the dark side of the Taurus world. I bought myself a Christmas gift this year - a 2016 Ford PI Sedan. It came to me a few days ago with just 15 miles on it. It's got a full cloth interior package, 3.7 V6, AWD, Reverse Sensing/Camera System, and a trunk rack with circulation fan.

I look forward to adding some options to this beast. I definitely want to get key less working as well as remote start. Dark car needs to go too. I'm also looking for center console suggestions. I was considering a regular OEM console, but have decided against it in favor of having some flexibility to customize it.

Hope your holiday is well, many cheers to you all!

Welcome to the site. CrownVic.net by chance?

How did you manage to buy one with just 16 miles on it? Looks great!

Shhh Webmaster, I don't want them to know I'm over here. :lol: Kidding of course.

Long story short - they come up on new car searches, and you have to find one that was titled out once. The demand for these things seems to be there since they plenty of power, most options, and a better price than most other Tauruses.

No sir that is not I. Smokestone Vic is me on CVN.

Oddly enough, he has a PI utility with the same color and equivalent options.

I just put an alarm, remote start in mine, but the could not do the door open sensor because they said the interior light doesnt come on when the door opens. Did you ever find the way to correct that? Also, did your phone button on the radio, voice activation and call pickup/end button work? That stuff didnt work for me.

I have a 2016 PI Sedan 3.5 ltr ecoboost.

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 vehicle signals" harness is "Driver door ajar signal". There are two police-only wiring harnesses in the console area of the car, one is the above 14-way harness and the other is a 6-way harness. Page 26 here has details:

He's saying you can use the "door ajar" pin on the 14 way police wiring harness (under the center stack/radio) to give an open door signal your alarm box is looking for.

awesome, i understand that hah. How about the aux button on the radio. It wont turn on the usb and line in, and the phone button on the radio wont do anything. Nor will the steering while voice command or pick up/end call button. Everything else on the wheel works. Is that something with the forscan that can be fixed? Anyone experience that?

Hi Kyledooley, my alarm guy just called me up and said that the pin only works for the drivers side door. Is that correct? Once dark car mode is off, will it begin working with the other doors? Not sure if you know.

Yes the pin in the police wiring harness is only for the driver's door (it's better than nothing). But when you turn off dark mode, the dome light will come on when you open any of the doors. He'll probably wire the alarm to watch the dome light and then all four doors will be covered by the alarm.
