    Do the rear wipers work?

    Hello lurker joined....2016 TC SWB

    Here is the wiring diagram and portion of the troubleshooting section from the service manual. As you can see it is impossible to troubleshoot without knowing the DTCs. wiper_front.pdf wiper troubleshoot_min.pdf

    How to dim cargo dome light?

    It could work. But you still have to consider whether your LED lamp is dimmable. Some lamps are. Some are not.

    How to dim cargo dome light?

    Sounds like you have a little project there, BSJBSJ! Thanks for sharing. Has anyone tried a PWM dimmer on these lights? I've got one picked out on Amazon if no one has tried already. Thanks, Joe
  8. You have the parts diagram and part number. Now it's time to start calling distributors. Distributors have computer access to inventory location. Maybe even a chain store like Pep Boys or Auto Zone. You could get lucky and someone has it in stock.

    Forscan allows you to recalibrate the wipers also. That might do the trick.

    Hello lurker joined....2016 TC SWB

    The wipers are controlled by the body control module (BCM). I'll post the wiring diagram later. Even with the diagram, your should invest in a scan tool. Cheapest solution is lto oad Forscan Lite (about $10) on your phone and buy an OBDLINK MX dongle (approx$70). This will allow you to read the DTCs. Everything on these vehicles are controlled by computer modules and the DTCs will usually identify the source of the problem.
  11. Using your part # .... went to Google & eBay ... seems many others have needed same , it is offered by that part # as a "shoulder" style flanged hex bolt which is not very common with 2 O.D. & maybe hard grade 8 ? ...If you can't wait to have 1 shipped ... try calling one of the many listed & offer $$$ over the phone for size only with credit card or Pay Pal ... OEM Parts.com @ ( 401) 709-7836 ... may not be open on Sunday ? Tom
  12. Just wondering if anyone knows what the size (metric or SAE) and thread pitch the bolt for the rear engine mount is on a 2012 Transit Connect XLT. The one that goes vertically into the cross member. The bolt had to be cut out when trying to replace the engine mount as it was seized to the alloy center part of the mount. Tried everything possible to get it out without cutting it but no luck. Looking at the parts diagrams available, it is part # w500526s439 or #6 in the diagram attached. Trying to find a replacement today and I would guess the Ford dealer would be special order.

    Hello lurker joined....2016 TC SWB

    I need some help, Please. I have a 2016 ford transit connect XLT. The windshield wiper just stopped working. I have 12 volts neg and positive at the wiper motors, but not getting the signal for them to run. Where does the signal come from. Does any one have the wiring diagram and any ideal where to go next. I have checked both motors the have power but will not work. I have swapped the motors for side to side and still no wipers. how much voltage is on the signal wire, So I can test the motors or is there a good way to test the motors. I have changed the switch on the steering column and the wiper still will not work. Everything on the switch works but the front wipers. Any help would be appreciated.

    Bulkhead Vents

    Yes. The bulkheads are needed for air flow and pressure equalization. You really notice the pressure when you close a lift gate.

    Bulkhead Vents

    I have read that there are 2 vents in the rear pillars that allow air out under the rear bumper. This allows fresh air to come in through the cowl(unless you have the recirculate button pushed). They also allow you to slam your doors and not pop your ear drums. I imagine the bulkhead vents equalize pressure between the front and back

    Tire Pressure

    It's that high to deal with the 1600lb load capacity of the tc. If you don't haul that much, you don't need that stiff a tire. Makes a big difference in ride quality.

    Bulkhead Vents

    Dont' have a bulkhead so no clue what vents you are talking about. Never seen a tc with a bulkhead other than adverts for such thing.

    Yep. 2021. Thanks for the tip.

    Forscan help

    You have a 2021? Forscan probably needs to update their database. Go to the Forscan webpage and send the developers a message (don't post on the forum). Give them all the info on your vehicle: model, year, vin etc.. Also make sure you are running the latest Forscan version.
  21. Forscan doesn't find my PCM. I've got the as built info, but it doesn't show anything for the PCM! Anyone know how to identify the PCM p/n?

    Turn on all interior lights (2016)

    Over the years, I've bought 194 size lamps from different companies. Some were cheap, and worked fine. Others weren't so great. Years ago, LED could last forever, or fail, without any consistency. If they began to flicker and burn out, you just replaced them. Today, with better technology and build quality, I now expect the LED lamp to actually last. Flickering and burning out is not acceptable. I'm not sure what could be too bright, or not bright enough. You have to decide that for yourself. For my Transit Connect, these are the lamps I have installed. I like them. No flickering. None have burned out. I have tinted windows, and I can see very well. I used these. They were good. No issues. I tried red and white, and finally decided to stay with white.
  23. Found a red LED that works in the Dome light. 194 CAN Bus LED Bulb - 5 SMD LED Tower - Miniature Wedge Base | Super Bright LEDs The previous rear light I posted is pretty bright. Probably even too bright for protecting full dark adaptation while doing Astronomy... I had these in my previous car and they are dim enough for Astronomy. 578 LED Bulb - 9 LED Festoon - 44mm | Super Bright LEDs Sadly discontinued, but maybe available elsewhere.

    Ordered but no VIN

    I'm considering placing a factory order in the next few days. The dealer is sayin 4 months...I'm betting it will be more like 6 months but we'll see.
  25. Hi all, This may be a silly question but I've googled and been unable to find a proper answer, apologies in advance for being a noob! I'm wanting to extend the overhead shelf in a connect high top 08 to just past the seating area. The easiest option to do this looks like some L brackets into the pillar above the seat belts. There's an indent directly above the seatbelt mechanisms trim which is where I'd like to drill into. Is this ok or am I damaging the integrity of the pillar (only be a few 4/5mm screws)? I'm in the UK and don't want to do anything that it'll fail MOT over. Thanks in advance guys!

    How to dim cargo dome light?

    Knowing the OEM LED was WAY bright, I specifically chose to not get the OEM LED light in my van so that I could replace the incandescent bulb with a 42mm Festoon style LED. Red in my case for protecting my night vision while doing remote astronomy. Perhaps you could retrofit the OEM incandescent fixture and choose a dimer white LED or another color. I got a second used OEM incandescent fixture off eBay for $20ish... I also figured out how to wire the rear light to the front dome light so that I can manually turn one of the rear lights off and on from the front seat. https://fordtransitconnectforum.com/topic/6031-turn-on-all-interior-lights-2016/?page=2 I've got a not too bright red LED in the original "automatic" fixture, and a brighter red LED in the one that I can control manually. If I need more light than the automatic light puts out, I can turn on the brighter second one on as well. I want a red led in the front dome light as well, but the first one I found blocks the key fob signal, so I'm waiting for the next one to arrive...
