Re: Buying a used 09 TX

Just to give an update on the outlet issue. I was able to finally get the issue resolved after changing out 3 fuses. It appears that a couple of new fuses that I purchased were defective. Thanks for the help!

Taurus x wheel bore/offset

Hi guys, I'm looking at a new set of 2014 18" Ford Explorer rims for my 2009 tx. I've searched and I cannot confirm 100% if the center bore on tx is 63.4mm and if the offset is 52mm? The explorer rims from what I have read are 63.4 mm bore with an offset of 40 mm. Can anyone confirm these numbers? T...

Re: Buying a used 09 TX

Anyone have any experience testing the outlets with a volt meter? Any idea how the outlets are removed? Do I need to remove the entire dash?

Re: Buying a used 09 TX

It does make sense that there is a bad ground. I've been searching the car but unable to find where the ground would be?

Re: Buying a used 09 TX

Thanks for the replies.

I changed out #13, #14 and #15 power point fuses under the hood with new 20 Amp fuses. None of them looked bad but replaced them anyways. Still none of the 12V outlets work. Any other ideas of what could be the cause? Seems strange that none of them work?

As for my 12v plugs, The one in the dash, inside the center console and behind the center console don't work. Not sure where to go from here..... ...

Re: Buying a used 09 TX

Also I'm trying to find the fuse for the heated seats, can't find that one either. What oil filter is recommended. Is motorcraft OEM ok or is aftermarke...

Re: Buying a used 09 TX

Thanks for the reply! So yes the heated seats don't work. Seller advised me they have never worked since he bought it. Not sure why he didn't get ford to replace them under warranty? The heated seat button will illuminate when pressed but turns off right away when you release the button. Didn't see ...

From what I have read I need to look at the intermediate shaft seal for any possible leaking. Any other th...
