Re: Trailer Wiring?

Which hitch did you purchase and how was the install? Any fabrications required? I’m looking to buy a hitch ASAP.

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?

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

I purchased a viper remote start for my fpis, brought it to a local shop for instal and he’s telling me I need a db3 bypass... I think he’s full of it cause there’s no chip in the key. He wants an extra $100 for the db3 bypass which I can buy online for $30. I have done some research and I’m almost ...

Re: Blew a fuse - no trunk lights- when I pop trunk interior lights shut off. Does anyone know which fuse is blown?

I don’t think there’s a short. I had the bulb and lamp housing hanging from the wire harness with the lights on and when I moved the wires the bulb / lamp housing hit the bare metal of the trunk and then went out. I don’t think it’s a short I’m pretty sure I just popped a fuse. I don’t have the manu...

Blew a fuse - no trunk lights- when I pop trunk interior lights shut off. Does anyone know which fuse is blown?

Title says it all. I had my trunk spark and one of the lights hit metal and I know I popped a fuse. Just can’t figure out which one. Now I have no trunk lights. When I pop the trunk the interior lights completely power off until the trunk is closed. I can not locate the fuse I popped. Does anyone kn...

Re: Transmission clunks

I’d have to see it. But I tell you these municipality mechanics are known to swap a lot of parts off cars going to the auction block. I would start with checking to make sure the wiring harness is complete with no breaks. Best of luck!

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.

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.

Have any of you installed a hitch on your police interceptor?

I'm looking into hitches for my interceptor and was wondering if anyone on here has installed one? I was hoping someone could help me source a hidden hitch that could go behind the bumper under the license plate.

Some pictures would be great of yours installed.

Thanks!

Mine still goes into pursuit mode just fine. Just slam the brake and then punch the gas always does the trick.

Re: NYS laws on pa / loud hailer on a personal vehicle

They don’t make any good quality PA system that doesn’t have sirens along with it. I live in NY and use to have a galls street thunder on my truck specifically for the PA system. It’s not worth the trouble you get. Luckily I knew it started to get hot and I pulled mine out before they tore my truck ...

Re: New kid in town

I have that stereo in my 2013. There's a few posts on here regarding it. It works ok, but after living with it for a while, I think I'd go with a custom console with a head unit in it. There's just no firmware updates to be had, my car still says it's a frosty -86 degrees F when it's below 30 and t...
