  1. My shifter got stuck in the park position, but the transmission stayed in neutral with the dashboard screen in park. With the car still on I had a friend check the brake lights and noted the top 3 turned on but the bottom 2 didn't. I turned the engine off, noting a constant clicking noise, and left it for the day as I had to attend another thing. The next day I found the battery dead so I jumpstarted it. The dashboard screen said Normal Mode, then showed it was in N - keep in mind the shifter's physical location was still in park. With the engine on, I manual released the shifter interlock and shifted into drive and then into sport(low gear) and the dashboard screen highlighted drive and then sport. The transmission also shifted into low gear at the same time as expected. However, when I shifted back into neutral, the transmission and dashboard screen stayed in low gear. So I turned the car off, but noticed I couldn't remove the key until I brought the shifter back to the park position. Bringing it back to park got it stuck again and would not move unless I manually released the interlock. I attempted to start the engine again however, it would not start. When inserting the key, the dashboard screen is still in low gear, with the shifter in the park position, and the transmission in an unknown state. I realized that the clicking noise was the interlock releasing and engaging and I'm speculating that the solenoid could be faulty - and the battery died because it continued to release/engage the lock all night. The brake switch could also be faulty, however would I have been able to start it the first time if it was? The switch was still turning 3/5 of the brake lights. Another simple thing are the fuses for the rear lights - however I could not find the cargo fuse box anywhere on my van, and would like confirmation that all TCs have this fuse box before tearing into the wall and floors. This has become an interesting troubleshooting process with a lot of components that I have not had much experience with. Any advice, or shared experiences would be much appreciated!
  2. My tail brake lights are out and I cannot find the fuse box which holds the rear light fuses. I've got a 2015 2.5L Gasoline Engine Cargo type TC. There are no seats or windows in the back, and I bought this van used. I've only ever seen the passenger and engine bay fuse boxes. The manual says there's a cargo fuse box but I can't find it. Can someone take a picture of where there's is and how you got to it?
  3. @mrtn Do you know where one can purchase those oem mirrors? I've got a 2015 TC that I'd love to put those on.
  4. @Fifty150 Which year is yours? and I'll check out the pricing for Lock World
  5. I've been looking online for a repair manual but haven't found any. Does one not exist for this generation yet? If you have one, can you tell me if you think it is worth getting and where you got yours? Thank you!
  6. Alas, I do not have 2 programmed keys. I bought the van used and was only given one of the keys since he lost the other. I really don't want to go to the dealership to program it but I'm also not in a rush so I'll keep looking for alternatives
  7. @DonShockley Wow! Thanks, for the input. I do not have my owner's manual so this was very helpful! I'll try it out in the next few days and see how it goes.
  8. How terrible of me. I totally forgot to check up on this. Unfortunately(fortunately for me), I was able to sell it on Craigslist.
  9. Following Procedure B on this website, I was able to program the buttons on a new key fob. However, the car does not start and the screen says something along the lines of key not recognized. This is for a 2015 Ford Transit Connect. Some background info: I bought a blank key fob on Amazon and had it cut locally. Mechanically, the key open my doors fine and the buttons on the new fob unlock and lock the doors as they should. Has anyone come across this issue or could recommend me a working tutorial on this?
  10. I'm selling this wall divider/partition that came with my TC. I'm located in CA and if you're interested send me a message!
