Re: 2015 Taurus PI headliner REMOVAL questions.

Following - sorry I'm not much help on the issue. I pulled that stupid PI dome light and replaced with a mid-90's explorer dome. A great stock looking change if you didn't have any other holes (from separator I assume?). There were issues with the headliner drooping in early civi cars so there are s...

Re: Taurus PI upgrade center console installation issues

theres a long base plate in many PIs that all the police equip mounts to.......if you had this you could just leave it in as it would have the holes at the rear to be able to mount the civi console. without the base plate, youd need brackets of some kind. i assume the civi brackets will get that job...

Re: Got a 2008 Ford Taurus SEL FWD A Couple of Weeks Ago

our oreilleys will turn down rotors for like 9 bucks......and wont charge anything if theyre too far gone to be turned. thats a much cheaper option if youre on a budget.

secondly, youll need to properly bed in new brake pads/rotors or youre going to be right back in the same situation again

Re: Taurus PI upgrade center console installation issues

yes, there is a PI metal base plate that the console bolts into at the rear (just bolts to dash at front). this plate also covers the electrical modules so theres no interference.

unaware of anyone mointing console without the base, but im guessing someones run into this already

Re: Sony Radio in a PI Sedan

There are a handful of posts on this issue - you'll need to go back and do some searching. The short answer, iirc, is you can only do this upgrade if your PI is sync equipped. If just a standard non-sync 4", you can't (technically, you probably can do anything, but the skills and cost required would...

Re: Full Range Signal to 6x9's?

Since you haven't gotten any responses, I'll chime in - though it may not help much! My PI had a single, center mounted speaker in the rear deck. While the sheet metal had cutouts for the 6x9's, they were blank and the deck carpet covered the cutouts. The single/center speaker was worthless. I insta...

Re: Hello! New 2011 SHO owner with a big problem.

That's great news! I haven't heard of any other TB's going out, but if you can get out of a modern repair for under $50 (and whatever their diagnostic fee was), you've just had a helluva good day!.

I don't know about the TB diagnoses, but crazier things have happened.

Looks the same as my 2013......the flasher relay goes to a fast blink indicating one of the lights is out on a given side. No change in blinker speed on yours??

Re: Sent a letter to Ford consumer relations about water pump

Do you understand why the water pumps fail? It's a Ford design error, the users (customers) are victims. I would not own one of these cars outside of the warranty period. Yea, they fail and let the unicorn tears leak into the dinosaur blood. All kidding aside, I do - and I'm probably one of the few...

No. I have two Taurus' in my garage that, at any time, can experience catastrophic engine failure. I consider that a problem. Ah!

Re: Sent a letter to Ford consumer relations about water pump

Wait, your 2015 Taurus had TWO engines in which the water pump went out? I can't even comprehend that as a possibility.

User error? Did you sludge the coolant system by mixing Dex and standard..........twice?

Not really - I'd be more surprised if they responded to every inquiry that was received. Why spend time worrying? You're now upset with Ford over a problem your car hasn't experienced!? What's the failure rate per unit? All mfr's accept a certain failure rate per unit and my experience is that it mu...

You've got lots of options....that dash piece is garbage for anyone who's done a center console conversion (i have an extra if you want it). It'll have the 12v plugs and plug on the back. Assuming the police dept didn't steal the wiring for another use (and they may have looking at your pics) all yo...

Re: OEM Taurus Console Questions - for PI install

there is a harness pack you can buy to help wire your civi console. it plugs into two of the existing PIS empty harnesses under the center dash and each lead has the function of that wire (always hot/door open/ignition on, etc.) with these, you can easily decide how to best connect your civi console...

Re: Center Console question 2013 PI

yep. colors are not the same across years so the transition between your PI and the center console can be off. my PI control center is true grey and the console has a slight bluish tint when placed next to it. I keep the cup holder open to break up the hard line :)
