    Alternator Whine Through Speakers...

    So I've recently noticed I can vividly hear my alternator whining through my speakers and/or subwoofer. I have a 2010 STA with factory nav and subwoofer. Typically in an aftermarket setup this wold be caused by the close proximity of the power wire to the RCA cables, or a shoddy ground...

    adrenelin tires

    This thread is pretty straight forward... But since I wasn't able to get a proper response, I just went out and did it myself. Here are 3 photos of my brand new Michelin Premier LTX 255/55/20 - one sidewall size up from the factory size. The ride is significantly smoother right off the bat.

    adrenelin tires

    I am also looking to size up to 255/55/20 for a larger sidewall - smoother ride. Has anyone done this and have photos?

    Lincoln Aviator seats in 2010 STA

    My actual only real issue with the seats are the lateral support - the side bolsters are almost non existent for a 2010 vehicle.

    Lincoln Aviator seats in 2010 STA

    I've been considering options to replace my front seats because they simply are not comfortable. What do you think about a set out of a 2005 Aviator? Would all the power and heating plugs be different?

    Sync w/ Navigation - Text Messaging Stopped Working...

    saleen032 - delete all songs stored on your Sync hard drive (if any). If that still doesn't work try what I did - disconnect the truck battery for about 5 minutes, then reconnect. This seems to reset everything, then try the install. No guarantees with this method, but it's worth a try.

    Sync w/ Navigation - Text Messaging Stopped Working...

    FYI: disconnecting the battery for a couple minutes has solved the problem. "Show Notifications" has reappeared in my Bluetooth phone settings - messages are coming in as normal.

    Sync w/ Navigation - Text Messaging Stopped Working...

    Is it not the Sync system that allows the phone to show that option? When I connect to my 2013 Focus, that option is available for that Sync connection...

    Sync w/ Navigation - Text Messaging Stopped Working...

    I have a 2010 with Sync with Navigation (Sync version 4.4) and as of yesterday, my Sync system stopped giving me text message notifications. The text messaging feature has completely stopped working. My iPhone 6 no longer shows "Show Notifications" under Settings>Bluetooth. I have ensured...

    My New 20" Curved LED Light Bar

    Thanks! Definitely helps with the dark back roads.

    My New 20" Curved LED Light Bar

    You might think I'm nuts, but I torched the holes using my acetylene/oxygen torch. It helps that I did this all in my body shop - it was easier this way.

    2010 STA Heated Mirrors

    Much appreciated replies... It would appear that while driving with the heated mirrors activated, they remain cold to the touch, but if the truck is stopped (no cold wind driving in and around the mirror), you can feel the warmth on the mirror... I feel like an idiot, but the only reason I...

    2010 STA Heated Mirrors

    Has anyone noticed their heated mirrors are not working? Is it common for them to fail? I tested the power and there is power going to the mirror, but no heat...

    My New 20" Curved LED Light Bar

    Purchased this off Amazon - the "brand" is Simplive, and it comes with a wire harness and built in switch, but I will be installing my own switch that will go in the blank spot where the windshield heater button would be. For the price, you can't beat this... I am very happy with it. Final...

    Check your rear diff...

    So I had my truck up on the hoist this afternoon to change my tires over to the winters, and I wanted to have a look because she's been running a little rough lately. Once I got her up, I quickly noticed a leak from the CV connection... I also checked the fluid and it was nearly dry with some...

    Smoke Coming from the Dash...

    I think I'll do both, depending on where I find evidence first. Thanks for the input!

    Smoke Coming from the Dash...

    I was thinking the same thing... I'll be removing my nav unit when I get home to see what the hell was going on back there...

    It was definitely plastic or paper... very strong scent.

    Smoke Coming from the Dash...

    So I started my truck this morning as I normally do during the colder months - with my factory Ford remote starter, about 5 minutes prior to entering my truck. When I got in I was instantly bombarded with a burning smell. I thought that maybe it was something outside that was burning, so I...

    STA Concept Seats

    I would have to absolutely disagree with the side bolsters being "completely useless". If you are referring to the rear seats, then fine... maybe. Side bolsters provide stability and comfort, without question. Ford drastically increased the comfort of their seats beginning in the 2009 F150...

    2010 Sport Trac - drives a bit rough these days

    I also have a 2010 STA with 125k km and have been noticing recent "roughness" to it. I personally feel it in the pedal when accelerating sometimes, along with some unwanted "road noise". I've purchased new Mercon LV tranny fluid and filter and will also be changing the transfer case fluid at the...

    Were these seats made just for the concept? Does anyone know if there is an aftermarket company that makes/sells these? My seats are making me more and more agitated these days...

    2008 Explorer acceleration "bumping"

    I had this issue with my 2008 Sport Trac right off the lot, and they couldn't figure it out. I am continuing to have this issue with my 2010 Sprt Trac Adrnalin, and the dealerships still couldn't help me. If this is truly the fix to this issue, I wish ford would just own these problems and help...

    Two Problems; please help

    I purchased an 08 ST Limited V8 back in 2008, and this was an issue right off the lot... I now have a 2010 ST Adrenalin with the V8, and the tranny is still a little jerky, but they seem to have TRIED to rectify this issue... At least to a point where I can somewhat live with it. I performed...

    New owner w/ questions

    I believe in cheap insurance as well, which is exactly why at 123,000km I'll be flushing the tranny fluid.

    New owner w/ questions

    I have a 2010 ST Adrenalin - 4.6 with 6 spd and 123,000km. I was just about to perform a tranny and filter fluid change. Should I hold off on this?

    17" Winter Tire Wheels

    So my winter tires are on black steel wheels, looking to make a slight "upgrade" to slightly more stylish rims. Can anyone recommend a 17" wheel with 5x114.3 bolt pattern? A local dealer in the classified ads is selling MSR wheels for $440 for the set.

    do the all wheel drive systems have low range?

    I was not aware of that at all. I was always under the impression that Ford was calling it an AWD system, when in fact it was more of an Auto 4x4 system, especially given the "jerking" feeling when the front wheels kick - It is not a smooth transition at all. I will be lifting my truck on my...
