Re: 2008 TX Transmission Noise

May we assume that you have followed the owner's manual procedure for checking the level of your transmission fluid and found it to be normal? If not, you should start there.

Re: Adding power to the storage cubbie on top of the dash?

I've not been into my dash, but just pull power from anything in the center stack. What about the power outlet at the bottom right corner? Can you get to that? Power from the back of the radio should be even closer.

Re: stability control and abs light coming on

Sounds like a good guess. There is another thread on here (right below this one, just now) about a horn fuse, which turns out not to have been the fuse and is likely to be the same thing.

Re: Interior Accessories Rear Tray

Other than this the dealer has a shelf that is VERY expensive. Cargo Organizer, Rear Parcel Shelf Part Number: 5F9Z-74115A00-AAD I've searched around a little and this Ford part is listed as fitting 05-07 Freestyle only, Does anyone know if it will fit a T-Rex? Seems like it ought to but don't want...

Yes, your seat warmer has failed.

Re: Where to access Vent Door?

Top of picture is passenger side, bottom of picture is drivers side. This is a phantom view from back of dash above VIN plate. ie as if standing outside drivers side looking back through windshield. Item circled is approx. behind glove box area. Ahh, now I see the instrument binnacle on the bottom....

Re: Want to buy a Freestyle, BUT....

The factory seat heaters in the Freestyle are notoriously unreliable. Not sure if installing your own would work out better.

Also check your trans fluid level (following the procedures in the manual).

Re: is the dash storage lid supposed to lift up on it's own?

Yes, it is supposed to lift up on its own. I've never taken mine apart but if you search around you will find a thread about someone who mounted a 12v receptacle inside this compartment, and there are pictures of the compartment being taken apart for this modification.

Re: Heated Seats Not Working

Very common problem and a known failure area. Go to the main Freestyle section, the Interior Forum. There is a long thread about this and how to repair it yourself, if you're so inclined.

It doesn't look like this affects the remote, though.

Re: Starting problems

When you said "the place that put in the alternator" I assume you mean it was not a dealer? If that's the case, you may have been given a cheaply rebuilt alternator. They fail all of the time.
