    2006 LS stereo install pics

    Joe, I do not think that is entirely correct. The sub amp was located on the bottom of the parcel shelf between the subs but was removed before taking the photos. The black box in the photo on top of the parcel shelf between the subs is the reverse parking aid module.

    DATC malfunction causes "passenger door ajar" message

    Well, I took the driver door panel off to inspect the wiring. Unplugged the Driver Door Module and inspected all wiring plugs and any wires not wrapped in gaffer tape. Nothing looked amiss with the wires or plugs. Put it back together and headed to the dealership to set up an appointment and...

    DATC malfunction causes "passenger door ajar" message

    Yeah, I'll need to properly convey that to the tech taking the service order. It will be an interesting write-up to convey the issues and explain what I'm asking them to do.

    DATC malfunction causes "passenger door ajar" message

    Thanks Joe. I'm going to pull the driver door cover to inspect the wiring there before taking it in. I sure don't like the idea of chasing down a wiring short if diagnostic does not point to a specific module as faulty.

    DATC malfunction causes "passenger door ajar" message

    Well, I disconnected the DATC and the problem persists. Either switch to roll down the passenger window causes the door ajar alarm to trip and no movement in the window. There is some noise from the passenger door window motor but I suspect it shorts out before actually rolling the window...

    DATC malfunction causes "passenger door ajar" message

    Same result from either switch. I have this week off and will look into it further.

    DATC malfunction causes "passenger door ajar" message

    I took out the DATC and radio but did not see anything amiss. No shorted wires or burning that I could see. Put it back together and ran the DATC self test again but it came back clear. Same error and non-functional hvac system. Any ideas before I replace the DATC unit?

    DATC malfunction causes "passenger door ajar" message

    Need some tips here. 2006 LS with odd electrical malfunctions. Press passenger window down switch and the "passenger door ajar" message comes up with the message center beep. Window functions abnormally and I've had to pull it up a few times. Message goes away once the switch is released...

    Replaced all coils and plugs last weekend with Motorcraft parts. Car runs great again, no hesitation or misfire. There was no oil in the wells so no change on the gaskets needed. The driver side was a PITA between the evap valve, oil dipstick, and the coil cover bolt by the firewall it took...

    Not quite. I have a how-to write up post with pics on here for my 04 v6 coil replacement. It was a bit of a process removing the intake and there wasn't a help article on the 2nd Gen v6 at the time. This is the first coil issue on my 06 that I bought 2 years and 20,000 miles ago. She has a...

    Thankfully, it's not quite a 'sputter' yet. :)

    Odd thing is even after a few days driving it now and a few hard stumbles, there is no CEL. Don't want to drive it too long with the misfire else I foul out a cat. I'll end up replacing all coils and plugs and the vcg if there is oil in the wells; just wasn't expecting to do it so soon...

    I don't think the extended coil warranty covered the 06 model year. Supposedly they had it fixed by then and didn't need to cover the 06. BS. I will change all 8 plugs and coils simultaneously. Need to find some quality factory replacements to last me another 10 years and hopefully a lot...
