Many moons ago I found a set of early 90s Explorer dual illuminated sunvisors that were a direct swap. No cutting, no splicing.
Someone put a terrific rip in the passenger one on my car a few months ago.
I picked up a set of 03-04 Marauder Illuminated dual sun visors.... The mount holes for the TWO of the screws line up. I'll have to drill for the 3rd. Apparently they moved one of the holes with the metal to plastic mount switch..... No biggie.
Another thing. The pigtail for the newer style visors is as I mentioned; TWO wires.... I'm ASSUMING one is ground and one is power It gets better. The driver side has 2 black wires, no markings. Passenger side has a green with red striped wire and a black with orange striped wire....
I TRIED feeding power to one wire and grounding the other on the roof. Blew the fuse for the circuit.... Someone I know suggested trying to test it direct to the battery. No dice..... Also a theory..... Both wires somehow get power and the ground is the metal nub the wires come through.....
If anyone actually KNOWS I'd be grateful. I have the sun visors installed and the wires taped so that can fish them back out. It's not as if it's an absolute necessity for me to have the visors illuminate, but it would be nice. I mean the car came that way so....
I found a post in there that piqued my interest considerably. Here it is....
Quote from: My10-80;451112would it make a difference that I can still manually adjust the speed?Ummmm, I dunno I'd suspect the controller I mentioned is OK if manual adj works...
May want to check EATC temp sensor mounted at heater core hose connector... It prevents blower from operating on automatic when engine is cold, then goes to full on once temp starts to rise... It's one of the things that pissed me off about the EATC system, as air was never warm enough when high speed activated(and part of reason why I specifically sought out my TC with a manual HVAC system)... Then you are talking about A/C, so again I dunno...
BTW there is also a cabin ambient temp sensor that plays a large roll in operation, it's mounted in dash above the Graphic EQ/storage well...
I'm sorry..... WHAT? A cabin temp sensor?!!!!?????
I never knew about this let alone noticed it when I've been messing about in that area....
Someone please educate me on it.
This is 90% a car that took a front end impact and had the nose and hood from a TC put on. There's what appears to be a decent sized rust hole just behind the driver side door down low on the seam. Request more detailed photos to include a phot of the VIN in the window. Personally I wouldn't touch it.
Oops, disregard my post. I misread you post and thought you were talking about the ATC hose sensor.I thought the hose sensor was the only on in the ATC system. I don't remember any sensor being in the box in mine, but it's been about 11 or 12 years....
The one I had decided I wanted a divorce from the car while I was driving on the parkway. My fault actually. Don't ask..... It's been a long morning.
Lemme know what you got!
All appears well from my laptop.....
For something like this, My 05 Would go and most likely the Cougar as well. I'm getting to a point where I'd rather dedicate all my energy at ONE toy rather than a multitude.
The other ones say it is in fact an 83 Cougar, but none gave a trim level. One said the car was a 3.8 which we know is incorrect due to the 8th digit being F.
You could pony up for a Carfax or a Marti report if you're THAT curious. You could see what the local DMV printout for your VIN says if anything, but that's a crapshoot.
My guess? The VIN decoder is incorrect with regards to the trim label.
Also, that top isn't super rare. I've seen quite a few like that over the years.
