2013 Interceptor Utility
Not sure if anyone covered this already for the 2013 Police Interceptor Utility, however the following are pictures showing how to undo the Rear Door Handle Disable factory option, adding in the manual door lock/unlock rods for the rear doors, and drilling out the door panel to allow sound to come through the door panel for the rear door speakers....

if your windows are disabled, there is a purple plug undone on the driver's side under the B pillar panel cover/seat belt stud. Plug that back in, and viola

Hello guys, I apologize for bumping an old thread, but as of now, the pictures that were originally posted for this thread are not available. Could anyone post their pictures from doing this? Thank you in advance!

Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
As indicated in my message, I sent a PM to the OP asking if it might be possible to repost the missing pictures.

Hello swsshawaii, I do not mean to bother you, but the images over there still do not show any modifications of the rear door locks.

Thank you for all of the help!

Hi Guys, hope you are all doing well. I picked up a 2014 PI Explorer that I am converting to a civilian ride... I connected the power source under the drivers side B Pillar. Wanted to ask you guys though, the rear doors actually do not have the actuators to connect the lock rods to. Any advice on how I can proceed with putting in these actuators? There is just an empty hole where the lock rod would connect to - I assume that is where the actuator would have been!... Any videos on installation(mechanical and electrical), parts, would be greatly appreciated!
