    Amp Installation

    Best advice for every vehicle is to follow the stock wiring. All vehicles have wiring that enters the cab. Follow it and you should never need to drill any holes are take unnecessary risks.

    Battery cable

    You can use your own cable as long as it is the proper gauge and type. Obviously you want to use stranded wire no smaller than 8ga. I prefer overkill so I used 0ga

    Interior lights come on while driving

    I also have this problem and the fix IS with the ignition. What I do is turn on the vehicle, then turn the key ever so slightly counter clockwise. There is a bit of play. I noticed if the ignition cylinder with the key in it is too far clockwise, the lights come on and stay on. Hopefully I...

    2007 Firewall access?!?

    best rule of thumb for any vehicle ever made......follow the stock wiring from the stock fuse box under the hood. It isnt wireless technology. Stock wires have to get in the cab too ;)

    Sorry for the delayed response. I'm just now seeing this. New solenoids were installed at the same time as the valve body. I only wanted to do the job once. Plus new solenoids were included with the kit.

    Amp Wire Through Firewall?

    Tip for ANY vehicle.....follow the stock wiring. There is a gromit that leads to the engine bay on the left side under the dash where your foot rests. NEVER drill holes if you dont have to.

    Do I have enough power for my amp and sub

    It actually can hurt in situations to add a capacitor. If a charging system is struggling to keep up with the demand and showing symptoms (ex. dimming headlights, draining battery, etc), then adding a capacitor is just another item the charging system has to try and keep up with and maintain...

    92' Explorer - Installed new BT deck - Won't start now

    optimas are trash. Dont waste your money. Honestly, just go to Costco and get one of their batteries. Plenty good for daily use. Its all Im using and I have 5 amplifiers. Zero issues.

    Is there a manufacturer of console vaults for 2006 Eddie Bauer edition Explorers?

    do you have a link to the 2008 version you found? I had looked at this option for my explorer and decided just to go with a more secure option under the rear seat (2 row). The console vaults are convenient, but are by no means a vault. Very easy just to rip them out of the console.

    Fuse for subwoofer

    The remote turn on should be wired to either something in the ignition circuit (only receives power when the key is turned to ignition) or a constant 12v on a toggle switch. You would benefit most from replacing the stock radio with a simple aftermarket one and using the remote turn on output...

    Ian, Ive been working on my exploder this week and was contemplating options for mounting the tweets. I saw the angle you mentioned of the sail panel on the door. Definitely not optimal by any means, but an easy placement. Be sure to check out my thread for updates here and on junkies later...

    The links are no longer working. I did take a look at them this morning and thought they looked pretty good. The picture made the tweets look like they are angled downward. I doubt this is the case though since the panel is vertical and not angled. How do they sound?

    I sure have. It drives perfectly fine when the light is on. I also noticed that there is no change in RPMs before, during and after the wrench light appears. This is why I am thinking it is the solenoid pack and not the torque converter. I could be wrong. There are way too many different...
