  1. I tried replacing the fuse for healights im the engine compartment. It's a 15A fuse, and as soon as I put in a mew one, it popped right away. There must be a short somewhere..
  2. Well, I started getting electrical issues (no headlights -low and high beams, no front fogs, no left turn signals, airbag light is on)... I hope it's only an open circuit short somewhere. I'm bringing the car back to dealership so he can fix it.
  3. Hi guys, I bought a used Tc 2012, 160k kms on the clock last week. Everything was doing fine after a fix on the gas pedal that was done prior to the sale. Yesterday, as I start the car, I noticed my headlights weren't turning on. Front fog lights aren't responding either, but the rears work. Also, left side turn signals don't work and the airbag light stays on in the cluster. I could use some help :s Thanks
  4. It's a really bad design from the engineers. After a few years and temperature changes, everything gets corroded in there and you're stuck with a pain job just to get a license plate on. For the euro brake light, I found one on ebay with all the necessary parts. My question is: taking out the original one on top of the roof will leave holes, is there a simple way to cover them without risking water leaks ?
  5. @Fifty150 Thanks for the help! I figured out the way to get the license plate screws out. I had to cut one of them and the other came out with some wd40. For the aftermarket radio, I found a Pioneer avh-280bt for sale in my local used classified website. I will be getting it along with a wireless rear view camera ordered from China.
  6. Thank you! Now for the fun part: 1- License plate screws are completely jammed in their metal fixings. There is no way to unscrew them without destroying them. I tried penetrating oil, heat and hand power. Do you think I should simply grind them off and install new ones ? 2- I want to get rid of the factory radio and install an aftermaket double din unit with bluetooth and rear view camera also. Do you guys have any experience with wireless rear view camera kits? Are they reliable ? 3- My third rear brake light that's located on the roof is a bit cracked and I thought of swapping it with a euro brake light instead. Is this a hard job? Where should I order the parts from ? Thanks again for the help By the way, I'm really surprised by the way this thing drives, apart from the slow and outdated transmission, the rest feels very nice!
  7. Update again: I finnaly got my Transit Connect after a few weeks of patience and headaches. The car wasn't moving because of a faulty gas pedal module. Car was sent to the Ford dealership where they found a corroded wire going to the pedal and causing the malfunction. I can finnaly say I have a 5 passenger, 4-window TC with no issues (so far) ! I will upload some pictures soon.
  8. Update #2 I went to see another Tc, 5 passenger version, 160kms, white, very clean. I took it for a test drive, but couldn't even leave the parking lot from the dealership. Check engine light appeared and all power was gone, like it went into security limp mode. Dealer promised to fix the issue before my next visit. Bad luck atrikes again!
  9. I know, but it still makes me sad. It took so long to find one with windows and a bench !
  10. Update: I had to return the car to the dealership. Transmission started sliding badly on the highway for a few minutes and they didn't want to fix the problem and they coudn't guarantee they would fix it if it reappers. So, I'm on the hunt again!
  11. Just got the Transit home and noticed a few things that needed my attention. First, the abs/tc light is on. Second, the tpms light is on. Third, the sliding doors don't unlock with my key fob. Any suggestions?
  12. Hey guys, here's an update: I finally found a Transit Connect just the way I wanted it! 4 windows, passenger bench, low kms, good condition. I'm picking it up on monday and I'll post some pictures for you guys.
  13. If the seats are removable and the floors have the proper holes underneath the liner, I should be able to get away with a 4-window model and adding a used bench in it. Yes, that 2010 needs a bit of love indeed, but the heater not working might just be a small resistor issue, nothing serious.
  14. Whoa, thank you for that heads up, it sure sounded more simple in my head than it is in reality! There is a 2010 passenger version that just appeared this morning on kijiji. Passenger bench, windows, black colour. Problem is: 240,000kms, a bit of rust and heating not working. But at 3,500$ it's cheap. What do you guys think?

  15. No luck at H.Gregoire sadly And GBL, I'd rather stay away from american cars as there resale value here in Quebec is pretty disastrous. I think I'm going to pull the trigger on a 4 window one with no 2nd row seats. I will try and install them myself along with the seat belts on the side. Is that a hard job ?
