Re: Dash Cluster stuck

So, with the key on, if you push and hold the button until it beeps, let go, then press and hold again, will it reset to 100%?

Re: Dash Cluster stuck

OK on the SE, you press the button until you reach the oil change %, then press and hold until it beeps. Then release and press again until it resets the % to 100.

Re: Swap 500 6 sp into Freestyle possible.

You do not put the TC bolts on thru the starter hole, you put them on underneath the car. The reason not to drop it out the bottom is as you state - it is very hard to get the car up high enough without a lift. I have one and I still prefer the out the top method.

Re: Dash Cluster stuck

Is your FS an SE model? Or SEL? Because the reset procedure for each is different.

Re: Swap 500 6 sp into Freestyle possible.

I am looking for pointers on how to drop the 6 speed in from the top. Since the flex plate for the 6 speed is about 1 inch father out from the engine block there is not room to drop the trans in between the flex plate and the drivers side frame rail. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I've do...

Re: Swap 500 6 sp into Freestyle possible.

•Some posters talk of an ECU and others talk of a PCM. Are these two names for the same thing? If they are different, I assume I will need both off of the donor car. It's the same thing. •Did you have to do anything with keys from the donor car to work with your PATS modules? I saw a posting where ...

Re: TC and ABS lights w/ brake pedal, not starting

I think you have a bad battery - have you pulled it out and taken it to be tested?

Re: TC and ABS lights w/ brake pedal, not starting

It tries to turn over but then it's as if the starter is doing the rapid clicking noise like when the solenoid is going out (know what I mean?) So you are saying it cranks slowly for a second or two and then starts clicking? If so, that is not a wheel sensor or anything like that. You have a proble...

Re: Swap 500 6 sp into Freestyle possible.

Um, did you see in my post that you quoted where I said it is under the hood? You gotta remove the cowl panel and it is on the right (passenger) side underneath that.

You only have to remove the trans mount to do the HP filter. Just support the trans on the left side with a jack while you do the HP filter change.

Re: Intermittent p0701 HELP! 2006 ford five hundred AWD

So the HP filter has never been changed? If not you should get on that - replacing the HP filter is more important than the pan filter. We have had 3 Freestyles in the past (still have 2) and on all of them I never changed the pan filter but I changed the HP filter and fluid every 50k miles.

Re: Swap 500 6 sp into Freestyle possible.

PATS = Passive Anti-Theft System. It means the keys with the transmitter in them. PATS is incorporated into the vehicle PCM which is located under the hood. This means when you do the swap, the keys from the donor car must follow the PCM into your car.
