Question Smartshield

When was Smartshield introduced on the Falcon?

My bro's 98AU has the same style key as my ED (Smartlock), but my 99AU has a larger plastic part of the key that I've seen on AU2's. Does this mean that my AU has Smartshield?

BTW I don't have an owners for my AU. I think my AU was made 6/99.

You can download the Owners Manual from

www.MyFord.com.au
(Last time I checked they had the AUII owners Manual There).

I dont know a whole lot about the Smartsheild system, but I think they came out on the AUII Models, although it is possible that there was a carryover period.

Umm, the only other way that I can tell that you have smartsheild is from the Keypad, (It has a Panic Feature).

Also Smartsheild has the Dual Stage Unlocking, (I.E. Pressing Unlock, and the Drivers Door Only will unlock, pressing it again will unlock all the doors.)

Also, I think the Instrument Cluster Warning Jewel actually says Smart Sheild, not Smartlock.

Mind you I havent been inside an AU for well over a Year, so I am probably very wrong about all this

Hope this helps a little ???

Isn't 'smartshield' the standard Ford window tinting?

Smartshield is the immobilisation in the car, not the tint SUNDEEP and yes all falcons have it since the EB / EB2 not sure. As for the key size, the bigger key was introduced in the update AU1 version. That upgrade had a change in the colours, when Congo green was introduced and was when the took the clear side indicators off the Fairmont, Fairmont Ghia and Fairlane rage

Hehehehe, I think your thinking of SmartTint.

Hmmmmm, looks like a good idea to set up some trademarks, using the word SmartXXXXX.

I.E. SmartStart, SmartBrakes, SmartCooling, SmartThingie.

Hmmm, 2 things come to mind here:

1. V8RUMBLE tried to do a Fast & Furious under a semi trailer and found out the fun way that it's not as easy as it looks.

...or...

2. He likes the wind running through his hair.


Chassis-flex without the roof might be intersting though... :s3
