  1. Trans locked in park

    Sometimes what is needed is skillful luck!!
  2. Just purchased a 2018 Transit Connect!

    Looks great welcome. The 2018 has the simple 2.5 engine and that could be a plus.
  3. WISH LIST!!!!

    When the traction control senses slippery conditions the stage one uses the brake to simulate positraction. This is a good idea. However if it is snow or mud it uses stage 2 when it senses both wheels having traction issues it disables the throttle completely . This renders the car, Van , pickup truck dead in the intersection, crossroad or hill . If the positraction mode was extended then the traction control would be a great asset. The traction control works very well in the rain above 20 mph .

    Have you tried a boost for the battery/
  5. WISH LIST!!!!

    Living in the Snow/Mud belt I have practiced the Traction Control turn off procedure . This car becomes very vulnerable rapidly so practice makes for safer operation. Why do you want Rear drive more than all wheel drive/
  6. Wow!  Ridiculously hard to sign up.  I had to enter combinations of color and the "I'm not a robot" probably 8 times.  I almost have up!

      Wow that does not sound fun, glad you are not a Robot.  Welcome aboard.

  7. Row 2 and 3 seat weights - 2014 model

    Nice Job, any video?
  8. Passenger seat fold flat?

    This is the illustration for a 2016. Yours should be the same.
  9. If you look at the Video on the changing of the Throttle body that you posted , when the throttle body is removed the tech only disconnects the wiring harness and the bolts. There was no throttle cable , it must be drive by wire.
  10. The car companies seem to be using the number of speeds as part of the marketing strategy's. Electric motors are very good for traction motor service . The fuel capacity issue is the major hold up in the electric car progress.
  11. It has an input in the console, It is analog I cannot tell you how well it works as I have not used it. I have yet to use the CD Player. I am a Radio guy.
  12. 3 years and counting,
  13. Hey if you find a V-6 I am in! I have read that the 2019 is going to have a Diesel and a 2.0 liter Direct Injection Gas with more speeds in the Trans . The trans is suppose to Reduce the effect of the power loss. They seem to be going the wrong way.
  14. If the radio is like mine with a CD player it will be easy to learn with lots of button for the channel presets .
  15. Patience... Patience

    True but a pair of pliers, screw driver and an adjustable wrench would get you home, now its triple A. When you get your TC learn how to turn off the Traction control . That will be important.
