    How to: Adding OEM 12V outlets to your post-aftermarket equipment FPIU (and fixing your horn)

    It took me about ten to fifteen hours to figure these two things out on my own, since there isn’t a ton of info out there yet about undoing police modifications (whereas on a car like the CVPI so many have been purchased after decommissioning that info is relatively easy to find). I hope this...

    Audio IN Jack inside front console broken

    So the audio "in" jack in the console of my 08 LTD has gone bad. It broke the tip off a cable I was using and the tip lodged in the jack. I was able to remove it, but because it was in there for so long, it stretched out the conductors. The conductors are very hard to get at. I tried to...
