Good Luck!!!
1. I wish it were that easy, my dealer attempted to program a remote, but the vehicle apparently doesn't have keyless entry. I found it odd that you can see the word 'Theft' in the instrument cluster though. It does not illuminate though. I read somewhere that ford makes this stuff pretty plug and play; true? I know where to get a keyless entry control module for cheap, but does my vehicle have the wiring?
2. Can I have more information on the A/C filter? Like where is it? One thing about the A/C; it's amazing! I've never had a car with A/C that works in no time at all, and to top it off it will freeze you over like that.
3. Thanks for the maitennace list, I guess I'll see how much this will cost soon, the car also need tires and some brake work (not sure what?), so before I go dumping a load of money into it, I want to make sure I'm getting top priority things done first. The car gets driven 6,584 miles a year since bought in 2004, so I should have lots of time (lmao) . But the tranny fluid is major! I want to get that done asap.
