  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. I do not know how to disable this. But from my experience with my 2012 TC the key fob works at a longer distance when facing the front of the TC and any angles to the sides or rear diminishes the range of the key fob. So just based off my experience I would suspect that the receiver for this feature would be in the front of the TC some where. Again this is just a guess on my part. Hopefully one of the member here can help narrow this down for you.
  8. Winter Tire Thread

    Just picked up 4 Nokian Nordman 7 in 205/65 15. Never had any trouble with the all season tires till after 10 inches of snow back in January of this year put me in the ditch. Have to wait and see how these work out for me.
  9. I just purchased this beauty. This is what she looked like prior to being stripped of her decals by the county. Going to switch all the lights over to LED's. But I am watching this post for ideas for the TC. All of my work is done at night in it. Lighting is a must and yall got some great ideas.

  11. Maintenance Manual for 2010 TC

    I know Haynes does not make one for the first Gen American TC's (2010-2013). I would love to get my hands on one also for my 2012's, but I am in the same boat as you. Chilton does have one but it is online only and you have to have a subscription which is good for one year.
  12. I have been watching the site and your posts for ideas on ways to improve this site for the betterment of us all. I have sent an email in to the Admins with these suggestions. Here were the 3 main ones that I noticed over the last while and sent into the Admins: 1 - Site Login Issues 2- Vehicle Info on posts 3- Editing posts If anyone has any other ideas please feel free to use the Site Feedback and Help Forum and post them. each time I have enough to send in I will make sure they are passed along.

    I have not forgotten about this. Got busy on another project, then got sick. Just getting over this sickness mess and I am back on this now.

  15. Yes Sir. Got two tractors actually. The first is an old International 444 and the other is a 2016 Kioti CK2510. Im just a country boy and wouldnt have it any other way.
  16. I was thinking the same thing.

    I am not sure. Just as soon as I get a chance I plan on making a list of the stuff I have seen posted so far and sending in it. But in the time being I have edited your original post for you.

    Another good idea would be to have a feature where we could do like on facebook and tag a user in a post so they are notified to look at it. So far the only way I know to do this for an Admin is to pm/email them, or report the post.

    As a Moderator I do not have the power to do this. That would have to be done by one of the Admins. Also your post about the current vehicle feature would have to be handled by an Admin also. The Moderators only have the power to Moderate posts. All changes to the site itself has to be done through the Admin panel. But both are good ideas.
  20. Lexington, NC Police Dept. uses I know of at least one First Gen. TC as their Crime Scene Investigation Unit. And they use them overseas a lot.
  21. I was going to mount one to my 2012. But effective Oct. 1, 2017 they are against the law here in NC on the roadways. It is still legal to have them on the vehicle and drive, but illegal to drive on the road with them on. And seeing how 95% of my driving the van is done at night on state maintained roadways and not backwoods country roads (like I would prefer to stay on), I cant not see adding one now when it would never get used. Politicians...... GRRRRR !!!!!!! But I always say more light is always better than having to say what the hell did I just hit ??? At least you can see and know what it was.
  22. I can say this. I am very lucky to have what I do and how I came to have it. But I will say this. The lift was the least expensive part of the process. The building and the concrete floor were the most expensive. The lift itself was only around $3k for a 10,000 lb. Me and Dad waited a long time to be able to have that thing. Spent many years crawling under our cars with Dad in the wet mud and snow to fix a problem. (it sucks) But no matter what equipment or how much it costs, if you do not use it properly and continually, then what is the point in having it. Be safe my friends, and stay greasy.
