My question is can someone post pictures of the holes? I got a 01 with floor shift and DOHC engine. I think I found the hole near the strut tower but I tore away insolation under my dash and near the break petal and booster but cant find the hole near it.
Just insert a sharp object in there and see where it pop up in the cabin. I personally chose to run power cable on the passenger side. There is a hole that runs from the engine bay into the right wheel well, and another one going from wheel well into the cabin, but some tricky routing is necessary before the wire is visible from the cabin.
Is that the wire for remote turn on? I think it's either blue or blue and white..
Also another question, what wire would be a good remote wire? I read the red and yellow is a good one but it doesn't work.
I don't see a problem with that. In my car I run the power cable even farther, from the battery into the left fender. It goes right past the area where the center hole is (in my car, it's occupied by the transmission shift cable). Just don't run the cable on top of the engine. Run it around engine parts. Fasten it to other cables or wires, if necessary.I have an 2007 Taurus with a column shift and the center hole directly behind the engine is the only one I have been able to locate so far. I'll keep searching for the others but I wonder if anyone has had any problems with damage to the power cable caused by the heat from the exhaust manifold/engine when using this hole?
I mentioned it long ago, well, here the pics. It is under left fender of gen3, where bunch of wires goes inside. At least you will be sure that the wire is not near hot cat.converter/ behind hot engine.There is a hole in the firewall right under the VIN tag (on Gen3, and I believe the same hole is available on Gen4), and it is easily accessible and not so complicated for use, than the method described above, except you will need to remove the wheel's splash shield under the left front fender to gain access for it. I used it to install wires for front fog lamps. Note that my method allows not to run wires near the rear exhaust manifold, where extreme temperatures take place, so it is also a safer way to put extra wires through the firewall. And I believe that it is applicable for cars with both types of shifters (floor/column). I will post some pics later.
