    Hello lurker joined....2016 TC SWB

    Do the rear wipers work?

    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.

    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.

    help troubleshooting failure to charge 2011 eTransit

    If the manufacturer is still in business, they would be your best contact. Or try getting in touch with Ford. The current generation of Ford electric vehicles would be nothing like what was built 10 years ago.

    Anyone tried Bilsteins?

  6. If you leave the door open, the parking lamps stay on. But they do go off. They don't stay on forever, right? So for those few minutes that the parking lamps stay on, your battery drains? It sounds like you should check your battery to see if it needs to be replaced. Or check your alternator to see if it's putting out enough of a charge. A 2011 is a 10 year old van. Perfectly reasonable to replace wear items with time.

    Unless you run your own wire to the battery. Then install your own fuse box. Then you can add simple circuits for aftermarket upgrades.

    Interesting. All of my lights, every light on the van, interior and exterior, is LED. No problem with my key fob.

    Most likely place. The slot is probably empty. If all wiring is installed, then only a fuse is needed. You would be surprised at strange finds when it comes to what is built into the car. I've found live wires with harness plugs, which connected to nothing. As in the factory installs the same wires in every car, and then if the build is for a model which doesn't feature that option, then the preinstalled harness just connects to nothing. No harm. Even though the wire is live, nothing is connected. No load, no draw. Customer won't know since it's behind the dash.

    But your owners manual will still tell you which fuse you can use, or a circuit you can tap into. Maybe if you look, the fuse slot is empty, and then all that you would have to do is insert a fuse. Or if there is an empty fuse slot, you can use it. See this post about adding a circuit to your fuse box. Worst case scenario is that you run a wire to the battery. If you do that, add a fuse box to the rear where the auxiliary junction box would have been. Then you can add all sorts of other upgrades.
  12. Kind of hard to do that with an underbody splash shield. You would literally have to drive through about 12" of water. In which case, it would be obvious that the entire lower half of the engine was submerged in a foot of water. Not to mention what other problems you would have if you were in a foot of water. This is a really late reply. But in case anyone else gets a similar symptom, you can clear the adaptive learning table. Then drive the car and let the computer learn to shift to your drive style.

    I did the same thing. Then changed them to white LED. I then stayed with white LED. While the red LED set the mood for hotboxing and backseat loving, I found that I could just see better with white.

    Replace the OEM light bulb with a LED. It should not be a problem to operate LED lamps on the same circuit, since the LED load is significantly less. But to be safe, check your owners manual to see what size fuse is on that circuit, and figure out what your load is so that you don't have a fire.

    You could have used a circuit tester to determine which wires were power and ground, then tapped into the wires.
