    DDM Tuning actually. This is the third set that I have bought from them without one failure. The quality is good and the lights a very close to the color charts on their website.

    I don't know if I want to do all four. It's not easy to find these relays at my local jy. I was lucky that Russell told me about the other cars that have this part (which in my case was a early 90's Taurus) or I wouldn't have gotten one at all.

    The one touch on the driver window is built into the GEM on second gens. But those earlier touch relays can be found on several ford vehicles. But it is very possible to do two per door for auto up And down

    Red decided not to start today. :-( Apparently, due to the recent cold weather the battery decided to give up the ghost. It won't even hold a charge anymore. :sigh: so I guess a portion of this paycheck is going towards a new battery. I am debating about going with an Optima or just a walmart brand battery.

    I've heard good things about autocraft (advance auto batteries). I was about to buy one myself but I cleaned my terminals and found out my battery charger was broken, so I ended up not needing it. Try and get the largest CCA you can. I think the autocraft I was looking at was 880? CCA.

    Regardless save the receipt for warranty issues down the road.

    Original Motorcraft battery was still going after 13 years so I decided to buy another Motorcraft battery thru local Ford dealer special about 3 years ago. I have never owned a battery that lasted as long, ever. Had Interstates many years ago that died within 2 years etc. Couldnt justify buying an Optima as much as I wanted one after reading mostly positive reviews. There are not that many manufacturers of batteries but there are alot of marketers/names on said batteries. Other SUV has had a Die Hard platinum or gold for about 7 years now and I imagine it is about time to replace that as well with the winter weather on the way.

    Picked up an Everstart Maxx from walmart and got it into Red after my shift early Thursday morning. The truck didn't start up right away much to my bewilderment. After throwing a charger on my 'new' battery and still not getting anything, I packed it in for the night. So yesterday I called in my troubleshooting team of Russell and Kris to chase down the issue and thanks to their help, Red Bull decided to play nice and start. This was a great relief to me as I had been driving my parents cantankerous jeep for the last two days. If it wasn't going into safety mode when I tried to open it or the battery dying right before work it certainly dished out more trouble than it's worth.

    It turns out it was a simple fix. After continuing to have starting issues with Red I got back on the phone with Russell and narrowed the issue down to the negative battery cable or clamp. I knew the clamp was broken after my first fiasco starting the engine but I didn't think it would cause a no start issue. So a quick trip to walmart for some new clamps was in order and after getting them installed, Red started right up. Talk about a serious "DOH!" moment. :banghead:
