  1. Last week
  2. I just bought an installation kit for my 99 Taurus and had my deck hooked up all in the front, but when it came to connecting the wires in the trunk it seemed like I had the incorrect terminal to connect to the box. It doesn’t fit in any of the three places except the one but it is a male end not a female end I guess, unless I’m missing something entirely. Can someone please help me!!!!
  3. So I bought an installation kit and hooked everything up in the front for power for the new deck, but when it came to connecting the extension wires in the trunk the terminal to connect to the box didn’t fit anywhere on any of the three places, and I think it is a male end and I was told I would need a female end to hook into, but I have no clue why it would be the wrong piece, or if someone can please tell me where it goes?

  5. While ShelbyRacer may not like it, I opted to return back to traditional halogen headlights on my '97. I managed to put together a set of Ford OE headlight and turn signal lens assemblies. I added WeatherTech LampGaurds to them to try and hold off chips and yellowing for a while. I just need to get a replacement set of corner lens assemblies, as those are the only ones I haven't replaced with NOS OE stuff. The ones I have presently are from a '92-'94 LS Marquis, but I may go back to the proper '95-'97 style ones. I installed a relay harness for the low beams only, since I've re-insta

  7. Michelle and Adam more of the V6 SHO crowd type. Glad she came home.
  8. I ordered an OEM spoiler for the fusion and it’s currently at the paint shop. I’ll be getting that installed soon. Also, just today I ordered the full chrome honeycomb grille for a titanium fusion and also the chrome trim for the lower front bumper that sits just below where the fog lamps go. I am still undecided on trying to install fog lamps on this car or not. I will make that decision before I remove the front bumper to put the new grille in as that will be the time to change the harness out for a fog lamp version. I may go ahead and put the harness in as the fog lamps can be added a
  9. Are you trying to get the screen to work to play video? If so, that wire is just looking for a ground. You can ground it to your chassis ground. Of course it will play video at any time if hooked up that way. The parking brake ground is used to limit the use of playing video while driving as it will only allow video when the parking brake is engaged. It is highly illegal to play video while driving. So, know that before you choose to tie that wire into the chassis ground. It will work that way though.
  10. So first post and it seems pretty dumb, but I cant seem to find anything that tells me where the parking brake wire for this 08 Taurus is located. I'm trying to finish hooking up my after market head unit and the last thing I need to do is run the wire from the head unit to the parking brake wire. I just can't find it! Thanks in advance if someone is able to help!
  11. Hoping 2021 goes well as well. Need a change ❤️
  12. Nice! I saw that car posted on Facebook SHO group, I wanted it, but I have no money.
  13. Figured I drop this little nugget here at some point... The stars aligned and she's back.
  14. Good Riddance 2020 Best hopes for all in 2021 !
  15. Well, my ram drove off with its new owner yesterday. They told me it would go quick and it did. I hope he treats it well and it treats him well! I’ll miss it, but my pocketbook thanks me for saving some $$$ right now. My fusion now has 180 miles on it and has been great. I’ve had it a full 7 days now. It drives how I remember my 2014 driving. I really dig the auto dim headlights. I seem to use that the most around here. I bet most people think that auto dim headlights are a new feature, but it was actually pioneered and introduced by GM in around 1954. It was called Cadillacs’ “Autro
  16. Since the truck market is red hot right now and I really wanted to save some $$$ monthly, I took the opportunity and traded in my truck for a 2020 Fusion Ecoboost in Iconic Silver. I got the final number today on paper and it cost me 936.00 to drive my ram for one year and 8k miles. Pretty good, I thought. I never really used it as a truck so I decided I really didn’t need it as badly as I thought when I first purchased it. This fusion has co-pilot 360, big radio with nav, and other various stuff that makes it feel like a very well appointed car. Much more options than my 2014 Fusion had
  17. Yeah, Chart brought up a good one, I know you mentioned vents work, but the blend door actuator could be a problem too. My 02 Sable had that go bad. Very easy fix generally. You could take the radio/climate control knobs out to see if you see it actuating when you change temperatures.

    I'm gonna try one last thing tonight. Maybe there is an air lock. So the coolant goes through the bypass but wont go down the heater core line because of resistance from the air lock. Sounds logical, so I'm gonna disconnect both hoses from the heater core, pour coolant in one end until it fills heater core and comes out the other end of the hose. Was talking to someone this morning and its something I never considered.
  19. Check blend door motor. -chart-
  20. I can't think of any reason not to, but seems like you checked all your other stuff. The only thing I would have done is watched to see how freely fluid entered/exited the heater core lines. But I am betting it's a bit cold to take lines off and take a garden hose to the system. Make sure fluid freely goes through radiator, engine, lines, etc.

    I'm gonna change it anyway I guess and I'll share my results when I'm done.

    The car never overheats and I've checked all hoses for obstructions. Thermostat is good, fluid level is good. I flushed heater core twice, and I even put a new one in afterward just to be sure. The bypass hose seems to always be hot but heatr core never sees much coolant. Could the water pump be just good enough so that the car never overheats but not strong to get through the heater core. Has anyone seen this. It seems like the waterpump is the only thing left. Also, the actuator vents are fine. I flushed the system 4 times over 2 days with rad flush and water. There was some crap at first bu

    All of a sudden my taurus has no heat and the winter is here. I've been through everything. Is it possible for a water pump to be bad and the vehicle never overheats?
  24. Sean

    No heat

    I was very fortunate to have the 2 days where it stayed above zero Celsius, so I put in prestone rad flush and flushed it out 4 times with water over a couple days of running the car. It never overheated once. There was a lot of crap in the system initially but its very clean now. It is a very weird problem.
  25. I personally have not, I would say it is plausible. I would assume you've flushed the whole coolant system out too?

    Sorry. I meant the car not overheat. The car never overheats and I've checked all hoses for obstructions. Thermostat is good, fluid level is good. I flushed heater core twice, and I even put a new one in afterward just to be sure. The bypass hose seems to always be hot but heatr core never sees much coolant. Could the water pump be just good enough so that the car never overheats but not strong to get through the heater core. Has anyone seen this. It seems like the waterpump is the only thing left. Also, the actuator vents are fine. The heater core just doesn't get hot.
