    Hey W2O! this is Rick in Kansas< /> I now have an '05 CVPI which has been in storage since early Oct '16.)double bypass).

    Needless to say, the battery was dead, car won't do ANYTHING, even after battery is charged,The manual dome lights or trunk release and radio are D.O.A. I know the small wires on the positive terminal, and the negative terminal, are both disconnected. (for charging,and I've corrected these 2 items, but it's still not getting power to or thru the ignition switch I'm wondering if it isn't time to play &quot;Relay&quot;Roulette&quot; Where would you place your bet?

    Hey W2O! this is Rick in Kansas. I have a quick dumb ass question for you. I switched out the stock driver side seat tracks from my 05 CVPI for a set of 6-way powered ones. Now I have a &quot;Left over part&quot; it is Ford part #3W7A-14B416-AA-050606A0856 that has 2 wires going to it. This was under the seat at the left rear corner, and has a brass grommet (for a ground?) and a slot about 1/2&quot; wide that is opposite the wire plug location (Maybe a sensor for something?) The passenger seat belt &quot;squaker&quot; works, but I get just the reminder lamp but no 'squaker' on the driver side. I also just recently had the air bag dash lamp on pass side come on, and the same lamp on the cluster is now blinking. if you need more info let me know (rbaker26(at)

    Love the new avatar!

    Congrats on the new SHO, I'm sure you'll both love it. I've been very happy with mine. I'm not sure how it gets around in the winter, but I've read that with decent snow tires it is like a tank in the snow. I'll stick to driving the SUV winter since the driver's around here seem to forget how to drive in snow every winter.

    Way2old, Hi sir its been awhile since i have followed this forum but i reall enjoy it. I ahve a question if ou don't mind. I have a 2003 P71 that has had excellent care its whole life. It currently has 98k on it. i am looking for a little more performance out of it. Do you feel that reprograming the pcm with a tuner wakes these cars up? I have read serveral reviews about chips and they say as long as its a p71 its a waste to cip them because they are already tuned to perform. I know you probably cant offer advice as to do it or not But i am jus tinquiring if chipping the car helps it to perform better... I don t wanna change engine parts or gears, its my daily driver. 3.27 rear end. thanks for any insight

    Thanks for your response Tom. I like doing mechanical work so I think I'll go the distance in removing the intake manifold to do the job. On a scale of 1-10, how difficult is the task and what kind of problems do you think I'll encounter with this vehicle which has 200k miles. Are there any other issues that I should address once I'm in it this far, or maybe going in a little further and replacing head gaskets? Thanks, Rob
