Question about Ford Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

So I've recently gotten into car detailing and I'm cleaning my mom's car. It's a 2013 (Or 14') Ford Flex. It's the SEL and has frond power seats. Am I able to just unplug the connector under the seats without anything happening? I ask cause Ive seen thing saying you gotta do some fancy stuff to make the side airbags not go off. Thanks in advance?

SOURCE: VW Beetle Airbag Light

The problem is the seatbelt latch. The wiring right at the latch and the strap are broken. Seems there is not enough slack in these wires to allow much stretch. You may be able to repair it if you can splice these wires back together if not about 160 to 170 for a new one. you can have it put on a machine and if the code leads back to the latch then you know this is the problem.

SOURCE: front seat springs

the spring is for height adjustment. all other functions will still work. the only fix is to replace the seat frame which is very expensive. you can actually still adjust the height but not while you are in the seat your weight will keep it from raising. Just remove the spring so it doesnt jam under the seat and everything else will continue working fine.

SOURCE: Heated seat

It is the heatling element, stock elements have a single wire snaked through the element and when the circuit breaks it is done, aftermarket elements have a wired grid that if one area fails it still works, they also spread a more even heat.

SOURCE: I kerbed my vw polo 1.4tdi 2004

airbag light can only be sorted by the dealer,with a certificate for the vehicle mechanical for teh power steering then providing the pump is working ok then you will need to change the complete rack and pinion ,jack vehicle up then top up the fluid and turn the steering lock to lock to bleed system ,if that doesnt work then change the reck and pinion as the impact has most likely damaged the spool valve.

My friend has a 2009 Ford Flex SEL she had the battery changed now the radio will not come on

He might need a security code. Check to see if it is in the owners manual packet. If not, they will need to contact their local Ford dealership.

I have a 2007 ford fusion 4 cylinder. Hen I start it it idles low and when at a stop also it started stalling when at stop car runs perfect when driving. I'm stumped I have changed that spark plugs and...

You need to have a ford dealer run a power balance test and also see if the coil is getting a signal to fire, this would be wiring issue or a PCM problem.
