  3. Can someone explain to me how to install fog lamps in my 2010 ford transit connect that has a unpainted bumper cover with the dummy lamps in it , do I cut out the dummy lamps with a saw and then install a aftermarket kit if so what’s the procedure

    2013 XL to XLT conversion

    Don't forget the power mirrors and remote locks. I'd also think about adding the proximity sensor if you rip into the rear bumper. I suppose a lot would depend on whether Ford in their infinite wisdom used a universal wiring loom for both. Shouldn't be that difficult if all the connections are already there.

    Replock

    If I read that right, the cylinder needs to be removed to enable the theft using that technique, so maybe one of these would do the job, assuming they can come up with one that has the same offset from the door edge. Looks to be available from the same source.

    Engine runs rough at idle, idles too low

    I got my scanner about three days early so I messed with it a bit this evening. I cleared the emission system codes and they stayed off but I imagine they will be back on by tomorrow evening. I read the engine codes and found a Random Multiple Misfire code. I have a fail on number 2 but that only happened once in about three minutes. No other individual cylinder codes coming up. Now I do not get a code on any individual cylinders. I might add that I read codes on my other 1TC and got no codes and the dashboard reflects no codes. I dumped a can of Sea Foam into the gas tank (full) in the hopes of getting (or keeping) the fuel system clear. We shall see. So far, I like the scanner. Easy to use. Senses the VIN. I have to get better at using it to really tell if it is helpful. As I only paid 40 bucks for it , I don't feel too bad. Tnx, Doc

    Replock

    Big problem over here. After speaking to a auto lock company it seems there's no replock available for my model, a deadlock in the door panel seems is the answer apparently. Thanks for looking though, appreciate it!! Steve

    2013 XL to XLT conversion

    Cargo Van or Passenger Wagon? If its the cargo van and only the bumper swap and locks, it should not be that bad. You may be able to use factory parts on the locks, a lot depends on the wiring. I can't speak to the wagon, since mine is a cargo version.
  12. I found a really good deal on a 2013 XL, but I like the XLT options (mainly the body colored bumpers and power locks). Can I just swap XLT bumpers onto it and do aftermarket power locks or is it a bigger pain in the ass than that?

    Replock

    Google is your friend! - I had no idea what a 'replock' was, so i looked it up. Seems to be a British thing where you repace the key cylinder in the drivers door to make it harder to steal your van. There are OEM Ford links for the kit and a video of installing one in a Transit - Not a Connect, but a Transit Thankfully I don't live where this is an issue Don

    Engine runs rough at idle, idles too low

    Bought some Cataclean and some injector cleaner on today. Monday. As soon as I get a moment free I will try the Cataclean. I'll wait on the injector cleaner. I will not use them at the same time. I am really anxious to try this Code Reader. I did a good bit of comparison between the low cost (under a hundred) readers available. According to the various write-ups, the Ancel 410 came out slightly on top. All of the write-ups are vague on how comprehensive the readers are in terms of the data they return. It came down to a couple of unimportant factors: Screen size and characteristics or data presentation. Length of the cable. Front panel controls. Speed of delivery to my mailbox. Finally price. The Ancel was the most expensive but on top in all other categories. The rest of this week is monumentally busy at the restaurant so it won't be until prolly Monday but I'll give y'all a report on how I like it.

    Replock

    Hi all, new to all this so please accept my ignorance, but does anyone know if there is a replock available for a connect 2015 plate or maybe a suitable alternative? Thanks in advance!!
  16. This shows the location of the factory CLD-type panels. They are sections of mastic applied before the vehicle is painted. TC noise panels.pdf
  17. I bought the 50 sq. ft roll of the ultimate. I didn't use it all, I have about 10 sq ft. of it left over. I also used the VComp in the front doors and the floor on top of the ultimate. Prices have gone up a bit since I did it. I have the service manual that made the disassembly and reassembly easy for me, and I'm a 30 year auto technician, just lots of things to take apart and put back together. You may not need to do the roof, I had the time and product, so why not. Also, regarding the front speakers, I forgot to add you can get speaker adapters made by Metra that will interface a 6.5 or 6.75 door speaker to the TC easily. They are about 20 bucks for both sides. That's what I opted for.

    That is a very cool rig . Your Trip sounds like lots of fun. I like driving around the US.
  20. It does not mater what you call it. The pressure gauge needs to go in the port nearest the engine. If you have the right scanner you can test the EGR. That EGR Reference was for a different post. It would cause your symptoms also.

    Engine runs rough at idle, idles too low

    OOOOPS. I got it backwards. I said, " On Gen 1s, there are two CCs in series. First is about a foot downstream from the exhaust manifold. Second is further back. First O2 sensor is not called an O2 sensor. It is referred to as the "catalist monitor sensor." The second is after the first converter and referred to as an O2 sensor. " The CMS is after the converter and the O2 sensor is before.

    My scanner arrives on 22 Sept. I'll mess with it then and post some comments. Mechanic never got an EGR code to come up.

    Looked at your trip blog. Looks like lots of fun. I went from Grand Island Nebraska in a big clockwise circle thru some of the same places. Although retired had time constraints, my wife didn’t go as 1 she doesn’t ride on motorcycles with me (may be related to scooter crash in Italy when she was on the back but she was ok) and 2 she doesn’t like to camp. Going out I rode mostly interstates but on the way back did almost all secondary roads. They were very good and it was much more interesting. Also was caught on the western side of a low pressure system for 3 days, one was really bad with rain and wind. It’s apparent there is a side wind when the raindrops are going horizontaly across the helmet visor. Spent three nights in Dubois Wyoming camping, very nice area. My cooking consisted of picking off the menu at a restaurant.

    Very nice! Like the way it slides out for use and is easy to put up. My current camper conversion looks like this 😁and doesn’t include a stove or ice chest. Seriously nice part about the camping module is it’s something that can be put in and removed easily. Will enjoy hearing how your trip goes.

    The link I finally found for P141A is an EGR code see if this helps. https://www.engine-codes.com/p141a_ford.html
  27. if there is a blockage it will be the first converter. The trouble code P141A has turned out to be an EGR code. If the EGR valve is not fully closing for the idle it would definitely affect the idle and lower the power. https://www.engine-codes.com/p141a_ford.html

    Got it. On Gen 1s, there are two CCs in series. First is about a foot downstream from the exhaust manifold. Second is further back. First O2 sensor is not called an O2 sensor. It is referred to as the "catalytic converter monitor sensor." The second is after the first converter and referred to as an O2 sensor.
  29. if the catalyst is coated the Cataclean will help, but if the grid is plugged with carbon or dirt it won't Not sure where the cat is on the gen 1 . on the gen2 it is part of the head pipe so there is no chance of clearing that one.
