  1. Any 2005 with heated seats??

    Ford Crown Vic, Mercury Marauder, Grand Marquis
    So there is no factory HS option offered in 2005...I think I will look for a aftermarket set and try running it with the rear mirror/back widow defrost switch..Or might go to the power pedals trim switch .I want to add recessed lights so I can find the handle better at night.
  2. I am looking for advice on how to proceed.

    Ford Crown Vic, Mercury Marauder, Grand Marquis
    Note down any calls or contacts because if things go further south you will have to tell the story again. It's helpful to be able to have the info on who said what and when.Sounds like the dealer is trying to do right.
  3. Anybody upgraded bulbs to LED? cluster, AC, Dome,markers,plate,reverse etc?

    Ford Crown Vic, Mercury Marauder, Grand Marquis
    It is a good upgrade I have heard. I want to make my reverse lights brighter and all the interior lights better too. Is there a simple way to get better headlights without going to HID ? I have heard that it is expensive to convert to them.

    Still have to get the new exhaust tip put on but so far looks like a great job on the repair. They put on a NOS bumper cover and the paint is really pristine. I'm so glad because I am keeping the Vic and I love having a nice new looking ride. .I guess the next step will be to finish the claybar...
  5. LCM additional coverage

    Ford Crown Vic, Mercury Marauder, Grand Marquis
    Just got my letter. .Keep it just in case there is a issues as it IS a expensive part. I hope that I never need to replace it because if it happens at night (go bad) it would be scary. Nice Ford finally addressed the issue.
  6. Upgraded throttle body and other upgrades

    Ford Crown Vic, Mercury Marauder, Grand Marquis
    Since torque IS so important can a performance transmission/torque converter make any real world difference in street driving? I don't think a 1/4 mile difference of a second or so is a big deal to me since I don't compete or race in a organized way but being able to merge, pass etc easily is..I...
  7. Keyless Entry Dealer Option?

    Ford Crown Vic, Mercury Marauder, Grand Marquis
    When there is few ways from the factory to make your car your own sometimes you just take what you can..On the Crown Vic you do not have a lot of choices ..Mustang and Marauders have MANY options . In our heart all of us panther devotees love our cars and want it to be'special' in looks and...
  8. Keyless Entry Dealer Option?

    Ford Crown Vic, Mercury Marauder, Grand Marquis
    I like it but it's not the way I will go. .I'm not sure if I will get the Marauder rear spoiler or the Mustang chin spoiler. But it does give a sporty look.The blacked out 'murdered' look IS cool just not me.I DO like a full set of guages and will add them as time and money allow.Mods are...
  9. Keyless Entry Dealer Option?

    Ford Crown Vic, Mercury Marauder, Grand Marquis
    I like to see all the factory brochures and literature on my 2005 lx sport and in particular the options. .My sport has keyless entry and for some reason I thought it was part of the lx option but a dealership brochure for 05 said it was a dealership installed option..So my question is was it...

    I will be taking her to the collision center for a estimate and to see how bad it is on Monday. I know that the exhaust system took a good shock as the tip was welded on and my daughter's boyfriend said a body mount was gone..I wish I knew more about what a hit like that can do.It seems the...

    My Vic got hit by a old driver born in 1925....Iwas sitting in the turn lane waiting for trafficking to slow to turn into my bank when I felt the bang then the punch then the push for about 15foot into the westbound lane.My new 24" jonez 3:5" tipwas bent around the right rear tire..No one was...
  12. Any 2005 with heated seats??

    Ford Crown Vic, Mercury Marauder, Grand Marquis
    My wife misses the heated seats in my SRT so I would like to install a set in my 2005 Sport..I was looking thru the owner's manual and it shows how to operate them"if equipped" but I can find NO mention of factory oem heated seats in any thread for the Crown Vic..What's up with that? It seems...
  13. What can the 4.6 do?...

    Ford Crown Vic, Mercury Marauder, Grand Marquis
    I think I'll be happy just making the stock motor run efficient..I just don't have the skills and knowledge to do a swap and money would be a problem at this point. It sure is nice to dream about! I was rereading this and thinking about my SRT 10 truck I sold to buy my Sport. .That was over 500...
  14. How to service a Factory Sunroof ???

    Ford Crown Vic, Mercury Marauder, Grand Marquis
    Thank you all for the tips! I will just wipe down what I can see and get to..I will look harder for the drain tubes and clean/blow out if I can. Water leaks are the biggest pain to find and fix and the sour musty smell is hard to get rid of. My car smelled of just faint perfume that after a week...
  15. ATF Change

    Ford Crown Vic, Mercury Marauder, Grand Marquis
    Is there any benefit to adding full synthetic fluid or some type of additive? Mine has 114k and I just changed the filter and dumped the pan..I plan on doing the same again in 6 months just to be on the safe side. .I really like mobile 1for oil and if it's okay for the Ford tyranny I will use...

    Ford Crown Vic, Mercury Marauder, Grand Marquis
    I have a 2005 Crown Vic with the factory sunroof. I have no problems so far and want to keep it that way! What are the proper way to do preventive matience? What do I lube the track bars with and how do I blow out the drain tubes ? I believe that my car spent most of its life inside of a...

    Well I looked at it on a lift a few days ago and it was really clean and rust free. .I had the tyranny, rear end oil ,gas filter, all serviced.My mechanic said all was well on the plugs and brakes.I did see a side wall plug in one of the tires so today I ordered a set of Nitto 555's in 255 50 17...

    I have a 2005 lx sport in dark charcoal . I slid off the seat and caught the plate cover with my belt and think I broke a little piece that holds it in. .Anybody have a extra? It's a long wait if I order it from Ford . Thanks! Bossharp...

    Ford Crown Vic, Mercury Marauder, Grand Marquis
    5.4....In my whole life I have never changed a motor in a car. My wife would ask what's wrong with the one in there now lol! Let me ask a question would a 5.4 out of say a Mustang drop in my CV without a lot expensive work on the transmission, motor mounts ect ? In other words how much of a...
