Re: 2014 ford Taurus limited LED

Secondary question (sorry to threadjack) - was noticing the newer Lincoln MKS has significantly brighter supplemental parking lamps that actually function as DRLs - wonder if they'd be a direct swap for the Taurus.

Re: maintaining your Taurus

This being my first ever brand new car I'm taking it to the dealership for the duration of my warranty period, after which I will be going back to DIY. That said I'll be changing which dealership I take the Taurus to (the service department at the dealership I bought the car from is abhorrent I've s...

Re: Use "fog" light / accent light strips as DRL?

They don't know what the **** they are doing plain and simple. That's the assumption I've come to. Apart from the oil change and the recall work they haven't been able to do anything I've asked them to. Hopefully one of the other local Ford dealerships will be willing to let me go to them for warra...

Re: Use "fog" light / accent light strips as DRL?

The work order reads: "Customer requests enabling Daytime Running Lights - read on Internet forums dealer can activate.

Re: Use "fog" light / accent light strips as DRL?

Yep, 2014. I think I'm going to start having work done at a different dealership from now on, the last 3 trips I've made there have been pretty pathetic. Trim issues, rattling dash, and it's all in my head according to them.

Re: Use "fog" light / accent light strips as DRL?

Just got back from the dealership (first oil change, license plate lamp assembly recall) - I requested they enable the DRL functionality, but when I got my car back I was told my car is not equipped for such functionality.

Re: Use "fog" light / accent light strips as DRL?

I'm interested in both to be honest - about 60% safety, 40% looks. I'm liking the offerings that DriveBright has, they just don't have anything but an HID conversion & LED puddle lights at the moment. I'll have to keep checking with them periodically.

Use "fog" light / accent light strips as DRL?

Is this something a dealer can turn on / recode or is there an aftermarket module / DIY? Image
Only real concern I have is that in broad daylight I'm not sure they're even visible - almost too dim.

I'm jealous. I've been to my dealer for 3 trips that they scheduled only to be told after an hour of sitting in the waiting room that they didn't even have parts available.

Re: 2014 Taurus Limited ambient temperature sensor problems

Mine just started this as well today - showing 74° (the temp when I got home this morning) on a 93° day. I'll have to mention it when the Grandpamobile goes in for the license lamp assembly recall on the 12th.

Any way for this to be activated / retrofitted to a '14 SEL?

Re: Just finished a Delaware to Montana and back roadtrip in

Good luck on the restoration project. Thanks! Unfortunately I haven't been able to do much over the past 5 years living 2,400 miles from where she's at but I'm hoping to get some progress made over the next year or so. Needs front end work (tie rods / ends, bushings, etc.) & brakes for starters, an...

Honestly the worst part of the trip was Chicago traffic - that was killer!

Re: Just finished a Delaware to Montana and back roadtrip in

Only issue we had was the dash around the MFT screen would squeak/rattle on rougher roads unless you pressed on the upper part near the center speaker.

Just finished a Delaware to Montana and back roadtrip in our

What a trip! 5401 miles in 9 days (and just over 89 hours in the car!). We were originally going to fly, but at $1100/person we decided that $700 of fuel would be better for our bank account & more fun. We drove nonstop there & back (other than fuel / bathroom stops of course) - went to a good famil...

Re: Why We May Not See The Next Ford Taurus, But China Will

That's somewhat surprising - then again, I've noticed (at least here in Delaware & the surrounding areas) that seeing another Taurus on the road doesn't happen often at all. I think I've seen about 4 other than mine since I picked it up in March, apart from the ones sitting unsold at dealerships.
