Anyone want an X3-FRDW AUX input interface for their CD changer?

I just sold my 06 MMH and pulled out the X3 Adapter. For those who don't know, it allows you to plug in behind the CD changer under the passenger seat and have 3 Auxiliary RCA inputs. It is of no...

Re: Clicking / Popping sound when starting and stopping

I had something similar on my 06 MMH. I thought it was loose calipers or something. Sounded like more of a clank....would happen every time you changed direction from forward to reverse. Never solved...

Re: 06 FEH 109K miles, need advice

I don't know if you made the move yet, but as the owner of an '06 with 80,000+ on the odometer I would say go for it.

At 60mph highway, you will get over 30mpg. I get about 31-33mpg as long as I...

Re: Mileage Drop - from 34+ to 30 - 31

I would agree with this assessment. Also, don't just check tire condition, but also tire pressure. Lower pressure means more rolling resistance and lower mileage.

Re: C-Max Hybrid = 2013 Escape Hybrid ?

Its that way by design. If the AC was battery powered you'd get less electric boost the rest of the time. The compressor is designed to go off at engine off to conserve battery power. If you want the...

Re: "New" Mercury Mariner owner

1. Are you sure you need new rotors? My 2006 MMH has about 70k on it and still running original brakes with no issues. Don't just change the rotors and pads because you think you should due to the...

Re: Reattaching bumper cover

If its like my '06, its probably held in place mostly by plastic rivets and clips. You just have to get underneath and poke around. You probably just snapped them off. I ended up just finding some...

Replacing shocks & struts on my '06 - tips for DIYers.

Pushing 70,000 miles and the ride was bouncier than ever (the loose tie rod up front isn't helping!). I never loved the factory ride so I decided to go with the Monroe Sensa-tracs. I got them from...

Re: Should I buy a 2006 Mariner Hybrid?

I'm curious if you made the purchase? If I had seen this post last week I would have told you YES, buy it. Sound exactly like mine. I'm at 70,000 miles.

I can tell you that I haven't had many...

Re: 2006 Escape Hybrid, driver door lock doesnt unlock after batter replaced

I'd try disconnecting the negative battery cable for a minute and then plugging it back in. I replaced my battery recently, and although my locks worked fine it caused a hiccup with the ABS system....

Re: Stop safely now message

On the bright side, you won't have to worry about your vehicle shutting down on the highway WHEN the MECS goes bad. According to my wife its terrifying. So, you just spent the same $600+ I spent,...

Re: "Stop Safely Now"

Ended up charging me $210 for the pump, $25 for the wiring assembly (which the mechanic who I chatted up in the parking lot told me wasn't plug and play but had to be soldered on), $15 for the...

Re: Weird events - won't start- replace 12v batt - then no brakes. Now Stop Safely No

Yes. It was MECS. I posted details in the stop safely now thread.


As for the ABS, the mechanic confirmed that after changing the battery the ABS system recalibrates, and it can cause that. He...

The mechanic didn't say the reflash was related to this repair just that there were a number of "updates" from Ford that apparently I might benefit from.... having not had dealer service in a couple...

Re: "Stop Safely Now"

Don't have a scangauge. It is the original pump. I did tap it with a hammer and it noticeably changes the rate at which it is pumping.... sometimes making it stop altogether.

Unfortunately, I'm...

Weird events - won't start- replace 12v batt - then no brakes. Now Stop Safely Now?

So, about 2 weeks ago, my 2006 MMH wouldn't start on the first key turn. Second time it was fine. Then I backed out of my garage, realized I forgot something, put it in park and shut it off. Ran back...
