  1. Because these wipers are phased by the BCM the Scanner is the only way to go, as Don Stated.
  2. The Inside of the Two vans are closer in size than you think . Having driven both the 2014 I have is a much more competent machine.
  3. New-ish Owner

    Welcome aboard.
  4. Climate control turns off

    Ford saving money with bad engineering is not new. All the rest of the companies have done the same thing.
  5. Climate control turns off

    Most of the New cars switch the ground. One of the first things to do on any of these can bus vehicles is to do a scan, The body control Module controls the AC.
  6. Replacing tires 2016 TC

    The tires that I purchased had a good rating were made in Thailand. I am running two sets on two different vehicles. When I mounted them they were very round easy to mount and No tire took More than 1 oz to balance . As they ware I will keep you up dated .
  7. Replacing tires 2016 TC

    When the Continentals were all done, I put a set of these on . I went from 215-55-16 to 215-60-16 the ride improved . The Speedometer error is 2 miles per hour. It did not affect the shift quality. Time will tell how they hold up.

  8. Rear backup camera

    I think that you use what ever technology is available on the vehicle you are using at the time. My tc has a camera, the other vehicles do not . All tow trailers.
  9. Mike There is something is a miss with your trailer wiring adapter Most of the modules have a power line supplies power . it does not load the actual light circuit in the car so the lights flash at normal speed.
  10. Transmission fluid change

    Nice view, I have a portable lift that would fit in your Apt. The stairs would be hard though!
  11. Transmission fluid change

    Fifty 150 This is what I use
  12. 69440 Miles , Three winters. Hard service in the north east!
  13. New Front Brakes

    The cars last very well in Vegas but all the rubber and plastic parts get killed by the sun. Any coating used as rust proofing needs to stay soft, a hard coating like Line-X will hide the rust if any water penetrates the coating.
  14. New Front Brakes

    Up here Driving style might wear the Pads out. It is the dirt and salt that ruin the rotors . The pads had 40-50 % left . The rear pads wore faster On My rig, they got changed a year ago at 45000 miles
  15. Harbor Freight

    I have the California air compressor the noise difference is worth the price they are very well made. Once you run the two styles side buy side the choice will be clear.
  16. Harbor Freight

    Before you buy an Air Compressor check out These units Home Depot has them, So does Northern Tool . Very Very Quiet.
  17. I am with you, The mileage difference is small and the drive-ability of the Auto is my prefference.
  18. I have lots of Miles towing with My Transit Connect with a 1600+ pound Trailer and the Brakes are very good, completely up to the Job.
  19. Jacks

    That is a great price I wish i needed one!
  20. Oil Change

    I have used lots of different brands of filters, When I change them I use a filter cutter to get element out to drain the oil out . I have found that some of the filters are nicely made and some are not. The Napa and Wix are the same and well made. The Fram is not as nice. The SuperTech and Purolator are well put together . I have just purchased an STP Mid range and I will report on it when I change the oil next and cut it open.
  21. Painting body moldings

    If you can find the right color the plastic Rattle can paint works very well. The plastic additive for the automotive paint also works well but is more involved.
  22. Jacks

    Do you have a picture of the jack. The small steel jacks i have seen have a much narrower stance so the Harbor freight jack seem more stable.
  23. I saw #7 today!

    You made a great choice welcome. I think about what I would order then find the unit that has most of what I want nearest me and save the 4 months of uncertainty.
  24. TC dash screen

    I am too old, having a Radio with dedicated buttons that I can use with out looking is my choice.
  25. Jacks

    The 1.5 Ton is enough for a road Jack. The TC even at full load is 1500 lbs a wheel . The size and weight of the Aluminum jack is very good. I will keep the forum up dated on the service i get from the Jack.
