    Another I can't open the hood thread...

    Funny how i replied a few days ago and said mine hasnt rusted shut for a while. Well tonight it was rusted shut again! Luckily it didnt take much effort to open it. Since i got my mustang the explorer sits more than its on the road so i dont change the oil as often as i used to. :D

    Another I can't open the hood thread...

    I had the same problem with mine a few years ago, it was rusted shut. Out of frustration i gave up and went to bed. On the way to work the next morning the hood unlatched itself while i was cruising down the highway. Got home and sprayed everything with WD40 and it hasnt happend since.

But then again i only need the cars to last a few hours during the...

    My friend works at a ford dealership and replaced my seat bolts after he installed new brakes. We compared the new bolts to the ones that were already there and the only difference was one bolt was shorter than the original bolt.

    Keyless entry gone wild!

    Have you tried it anywhere other than your driveway? You could have a neighbor with a satalite dish or antenna trying to speak to mars screwing up radio frequencies. Especially with the fact that it worked at the dealer. A guy who lives a few streets down from me was ordered by the city to...

    Mine seems to do the same thing at the same speeds but not all the time. Let me know if you ever find what it is. I thought maybe it was just vibration from my exhaust or something but it didnt do it when i first got it installed. I dunno.

    Sony deck, why all the hate?

    Its all a matter of opinion. If you are going to buy it no matter what who cares what anyone says? Judge for yourself. I have been in two seperate automobiles (one of them being my own) that had amps fry and spark up pretty bad and both times the volume was no where close to cranked.
