The say a command piece isn't just Nav related, it's controlled by changing from basic to advanced voice commands. Or something to that effect.

ambient lighting of a door changes from the rest of the car if it is open:



a little tough to see but when opening the door, the interior defaults to OEM blue glow while the open door (to the right of the picture) changes to the set color (red in my case)

Anyone know where I can fin the details of swapping the standard LCD screen with the MyFord non-touch display? I cannot find it for the life of me. It even had part numbers. Thx.

Red face Titanium in Colombia

Hello everyone and Happy New Year from Colombia -South America-. I'm new here (first post ever) and waiting for my car to be delivered.

For the Colombian Titanium sedan (no Hatchback offered in our market) I found some strange things:
- Heated front seats for a tropical (24C all year-round) climate?
- Soft plastics on the front door panels but hard plastic on the rear ones
- No rain sensor available
- Sirius satellite radio but no coverage available

Nice for this market segment:
- Remote engine start
- Direct injection and chain-drive timing (no need to replace timing belt ever)
- 3 Year warranty (unlimited mileage)
- 7 airbags (1 for the Knee and the other "usual" 6 airbags)
- MFT (but no NAV option available)

This thread is rad. My favorite is the trick to keep that bright ass interior light off upon unlocking and just the LEDs :)

Not to flog a dead horse or anything, but even the dash in my 84 mustang is set up this way..... and if you have this much trouble with it being only a couple inches out of the way, man, a mini cooper must render you catatonic, with the speedo being on the center console....;)

Anyone else notice the turn signal "click" sound comes from a hidden speaker. No sound from the signals for the first few seconds after startup but you see the instrument indicator lights blink. Just an observation.
