  1. High Output Alternator for SHO

    5th-6th Gen Electronics, Security, Audio, Visual
    Seem to be having a huge dilemma. Getting ready to buy a 2016 SHO but just found out nobody makes a high output alternator for it. Already contacted mechman and they stated because it comes with a 200 AMP alternator factory, they don't make one. This is hardly enough. The 240 AMP I have in my...
  2. HID headlights

    5th-6th Gen Electronics, Security, Audio, Visual
    OK, so I talked to the manufacturers this week at SEMA, specifically about the headlight issue. No, the SHO won't work. No, there is no viable alternative for a HID conversion. (crappy news I know). According toseveral bulb manufacturers tho, LED supposedly uses factory projectors and is 50 sate...
  3. Swap in Sony HD radio + controls into 2016 SHO ?

    5th-6th Gen Electronics, Security, Audio, Visual
    Aftermarket may be a cheaper option. I am not sure if the sony wiring is equipped with the non-sony vehicle. My 2011 did not have the sony and does not have the wiring for the amp in the trunk, the antenna for the nav or the wiring in the A-pillars for the tweeters. Not sure about the newer...
  4. West coast get together

    West Coast Chapter forum
    Would there be anybody interested in having a sort of Taurus club meet some where in the southwest? Maybe around next spring or summer ?(2017) I live in Vegas but pretty flexable when it comes to driving withing 300 miles any direction. If we could get enough people it could be a good time. Just...
  5. HID headlights

    5th-6th Gen Electronics, Security, Audio, Visual
    ^^^^ Anybody else have input on this. I would drop the money on SHO lights in a second if I knew they would fit for sure and they are legal, even if it's a margin call. I have searched high and low to no avail for anything aftermarket. Just bulbs
  6. HID headlights

    5th-6th Gen Electronics, Security, Audio, Visual
    Thanks, I will try that next I guess. According to the Ford schematic, the headlamps run seperate fuses and already have relays in them. I install relays all day and shouldn't be a problem to upgrade the wire size
  7. HID headlights

    5th-6th Gen Electronics, Security, Audio, Visual
    Well, I went with the OSRAM nightbreakers H3's. I have to say, I'm less than impressed. While they a a little brighter than the others, they are still not the white light I am looking for. I guess the blue lamps will be next.
  8. Need some audio guidance 4-CH or 6-CH AMP?

    5th-6th Gen Electronics, Security, Audio, Visual
    The stock sony speakers are not that bad of a speaker. I ran them for a long time until my new amp destroyed them. It all depends on how big an amplifier you get. I now have Mirus speakers front and rear and I am ecstatic with their performance. Know what you want exactly before you start...
  9. Battery talk

    5th-6th Gen Electronics, Security, Audio, Visual
    I like odyssy batteries. I have them in everything I own and we use them in the police bikes at work.(which actually have 2 odyssy batteries each.) I have no battery problems at all and the cost is not much more than OEM but the battery has more CCA's than stock.(In fact the oddyssy battery is...

    5th and 6th Gen Maintenance and Repair
    Condensor comes out the top. pretty easy. no bumper removal.
  11. HID headlights

    5th-6th Gen Electronics, Security, Audio, Visual
    Ok, so now I'm really confused. I was looking up my wiring schematic on Ford Installer to possibly add the relay you guys were discussing in another post and it shows HID wiring. It says HID several times in the diagram. Do 2011's have HID projectors with crappy yellow bulbs? I would post a...
  12. HID headlights

    5th-6th Gen Electronics, Security, Audio, Visual
    Okay, so I read the post about HID conversions and I have a couple questions. I could not post on it because it got locked by admin. First, what makes it illegal? I cannot find a N.R.S. (NV revised statute) regarding any kind of lighting conversions or modifications other than height...
  13. Rear brake job - caliper tool

    5th and 6th Gen Maintenance and Repair
    Use the tool. A lot of parts stores like napa or auto-zone rent them or let you borrom them. It can be done without the tool but it's more difficult, you stand a greater chance of ripping the boot and why risk it. Spray the piston boot with a silicone spray the boot won't stick so much. Don't...
  14. Audio System Install Help.

    5th-6th Gen Electronics, Security, Audio, Visual
    There are no existing holes in the firewall that I'm aware of or could find unless you have the police package. Drilling seems to be the only option but if done right will look like factory when finished. Always verify what's on both sides of firewall before drilling. I went through the driver...

  16. This one will strain your knowledge

    5th and 6th Gen Engine and Drivetrain
    2011 3.5 NA. I have been wrenching for over 30 years and this has me stumped for a fix.(other than the obvious.) I just installed new Accel super coils and plugs in the car. Car runs better than ever. How ever, now my A/C blower motor keeps cycling randomly every minute or so. Only in the high...
  17. 2013 Taurus limited Alternator Removal

    5th and 6th Gen Maintenance and Repair
    I just went thru sort of the same thing with the alternator. I have a 270 amp mechman and after replacing the battery, I also found out that the alternator was only putting out 13.3 VDC at the battery. Being PCM controlled stator this threw me off a little bit being an after market alternator...
  18. Stock Wiring Harness / Non-Sony Radio

    5th-6th Gen Electronics, Security, Audio, Visual
    Are you looking for the whole factory harness or just the connectors? Most Ford connectors have a part number and the "shell" can be bought directly from your dealer and plug in any wires you see fit. They are listed on the Ford Installer websire under wiring repair kits by part number. If you...
  19. Intermittant brake lights

    Electronics, Security, Audio and Visual
    I would agree with Sheila, I would check the switch output first, but being as I have no idea what you're working on it's really just a WAG. DO the brake lights come on every time you depress the pedal, then go out or randomly?
  20. Spark plug of choice?

    5th and 6th Gen Maintenance and Repair
    Ok boys, after rifling endless posts about misfires, codes and broken plug removal, I could not find anybody's take on their "favorite" spark plug. I just purchased new accel super coils and as long as I have to pull the upper plenum anyway, I'm doing it all at once. I would like to hear...
