  1. Trans locked in park

    Sometimes you can get away with this on some of the thingymajiggers and doodads.
  2. Patience... Patience

    "69 Chevy. A real automobile right there. And welcome to the forum.
  3. Online they are cheaper. But a trip to the local parts house or local dealer sales counter will cost you your first born, an arm, a leg, and a ear.
  4. Mine is getting worse. Guess I am going to have to break down and put a new one in it.
  5. I love my Astro. Glad I purchased it. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002PUTC0M/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  6. Are these factory lug nuts?

    This is a new one for me. I have now bookmarked this site for future reference. I think I miss read your original post OLDSCHOOLFOOL.
  7. Are these factory lug nuts?

    http://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/ford,2014,transit+connect,1.6l+l4+turbocharged,3298552,wheel,lug+nut,7676 Here is a set of after market lug nuts. If you click on the blue info button it will bring up another page with specs for them. This may give you a starting point to work from.
  8. Spare Tire Carrier

    I do not know of any online places. But you might consider a junk yard. They usually sell off parts pretty cheap. Here in my area we have a company called Pull A Part where you go in to the yard and pull the parts you need from the vehicle if they have the right one.
  9. Sounds like we have the same luck. Hate electrical stuff, those are some mean gremlins.
  10. Winter Tire Thread

    Got to try out the Nokian Nordman 7's last night. They are awesome and the TC plowed right through it all. These tires took care of my starting and stopping problems I was having with the all seasons. Money well spent, and kicking myself for not doing it years ago.
  11. This killed my recommendation. :( But if you change your mind on this, the Kenwood Excelon DNX693S that I installed last year has yet to disappoint me.
  12. Will check into that as well. Love my TC, but this thing sucks when it comes time to make repairs. Very little info on them here in the US.
  13. Hi Timbo. I have just started to have this same problem but with my main culprit being the driver side front door. I am like you and just can not see a switch for the sliding doors being the problem. From what I can tell by digging around on Google, the switch for the front two doors are located internally in the door lock actuator. RockAuto has this part for $224. Again this is just from what I am understanding and I may be wrong on this. But I can not see spending that kinda money just to find out. But this is for TC's with power door locks. From what I can tell the TC's with manual door locks have a standard door jamb switch on the front doors as well like the sliding doors have. Going to keep digging into this as I also get a little nervous about the not locking issue. Also, you are not the only one anymore.
  14. This is a nice post. It has the year of the vehicle, what the problem is, corrective steps taken so far, and even a video to demo the problem. Welcome to the community nick28. Hope you get this worked out. I would go with what everyone else has stated.
  15. 2014 TC Rear Blower Motor

    With kids all things are possible. And it is always a good idea to have a service manual laying around.
