High engine revving on hard braking - 2013 PI

Had the first road trip in the blues mobile and highway mileage was a decent 25-ish mpg doing between 70 + 80mph. During several points in traffic I had to hard brake from 70+ due to suddenly stopping traffic and noticed that the engine revs maintained high. At first I thought I had somehow hit the ...

Re: Console base plate

pick-a-part is probably your best bet from a civilian and police taurus. you can try calling around to emergency equipment outfitters in your area to see if they have anything laying around. or try the the fleet dept at a police dept.

Re: 2013 PI Ignition conversion

I seem to remember reading on some other boards that this isn't possible with the PIs. just too much differences in the harnesses and programming. not saying that it couldn't be done with a will and $$$ - but your probably much better off going to a decent stereo store and having them install one fo...

Re: Has anyone bought this tesla style screen?

Got the center console in, it goes together pretty nicely the console looks terrific! so, how does it sound? did you install an additional amp? how well does the carplay work? curious - from your photograph, is that a gap between the bottom of the unit and the top of the cig lighter tray? and are y...

Rear end sounds like a wooden sailing ship!

Every now and then I like to drive with the radio/music off so I can listen for any strange noises and sure enough - I am hearing a sound from the right rear of my 2013 PI that sounds like the creaking of a wooden sailing ship - yup, just like what you hear in the movies and on tv. I generally hear ...

Re: Asia Motors Inc. of Melrose Park, IL

they always seem to have good inventory - i have noticed tho, on the really "good" deals you have to check the Carfax for accidents/airbag deployments and title condition. and sometimes if you search on the VIN you'll see where the vehicle was bought from auction or Copart.

Re: 2013 Taurus ex-PI Console Final Touches

the console i installed was from an SHO. the push button ignition switch is held in place on the rear of the trim strip by 4 Torx screws. once you remove the push button switch, you will need to remove the black plastic "hot-wire" prevention ring from the keyed ignition switch.

Trunk Water Feature

Anyone else have a little pool under their spare tire after a hard rain? My 2013 PI develops a water feature after every hard rain and I have to remove the spare and take the little rubber plug out of the trunk floor well to drain it. My guess is that in hard rains, water travels down the channels o...

Re: 2013 Taurus ex-PI Console Final Touches

Since I am too cheap to pay the $120 + for DG1Z5404608JA right now, I mocked up a temp filler for my console install. It's made out of black foamcore and black cloth tape - my plan is to take it to a 3D designer to have it scanned and cleaned up (straight edges, better fitment, etc) and then 3D prin...
