Re: Automatic Climate Control?

I have not seen anyone do this - I just added switches to run the heating element in the seats.

Re: How wide can you go? Wheels

You could really go as wide as you want - depends on how much you want to do to make them work ($$$). I run the mustang track pack 19x9's - the rears are no problem, but fronts do rub at full lock without spacers. Of course, all oversized options are 'run at your own risk' and you should measure out...

Re: speaker recommendation

just search for 'speaker' in the top right search bar. lots of previous information with recommendations on brands/good deals. Generally, any 5x7 or 6x8 will work just fine in the doors......your rear deck upgrade is made easier/harder by what is currently in place for deck speakers

Re: connector name/type

I can't see inside to determine the pin count, but this is the kind of place that should help you locate what you need:

the cable just has the sheathing pulled back and wiring pinned for the plug. Finding the plug will tell you which pin type you need.

Re: Hood Switch Harness Installation

That's very odd - are you sure there's not a harness? I believe that all PI's came wired for the hood switch. It's especially odd that your vehicle has a switch but no harness. I suspect that it was disconnected at the time of downfitting before sale. I just had my civilian 16 explorer apart so I'm ...

Re: 2011 Limited seats in 2016 SE

fit......yes, theyd fit just fine. plug and play functionality is probably your question. 1) do either/both drivers have memory? 2) you could check electrical diagrams for both years to see if the pinouts to the seat harness are the same. I suspect they are. the seat internals/sensors have changed b...

Re: Ready for the Road right front marker light

did the dealership give you the original light after replacing it the first time? if not, you might have gotten played and its not hardware.

Re: center console wire harness

the civi center console comes with a harness. unless someone else has found one or the 2016's are different, there's no direct plug in connector on the PI so you just cut/solder/shrink your way to power/ground. The PI pigtails have always hot, ignitition, and door power options so you can make your ...

Re: 2010 Taurus 3.5 leaks coolant

Sorry to inform you - that's the water pump weep hole. The hole is designed to be open to allow for the natural condensation/weep that happens in all cars. Your's isn't missing anything. Unfortunately, if coolant is free flowing out of that weep hole, you've got a very, very expensive repair in fron...

Re: Driver seat too close 2008 Taurus power seats

There are a handful of companies that do seat extenders - I don't see any for your specific model/year though. If you're handy or have a local fabricator you trust, there's not a lot to them.

Re: wiring harness (audio)

If you're looking to take on that endeavor (and I don't know that I've seen anyone successfully converting a non-sync vehicle over to sync), why wouldn't you just buy a civi harness and console with sync module? I imagine you're going to have a hard enough time with the software programming that you...

Re: How much lifetime mileage can we expect?

they are all basically the same duratec engine......the 3.7 utilizes a slightly increased bore to make the extra displacement, otherwise the stroke is the same. The ecoboost adds the twin turbo/direct injection so technically it probably is the least reliable because it's taking the base platform an...

Re: 2013 Taurus SEL 3.5L - Check Charging System

You may need to use IDS rather than a basic code reader. Before you go that route, have you 1) disconnected battery overnight? 2) completed the BMS reset? Start with the battery disconnect and see what happens since it's cheap and easy!
