Regarding the LED conversion, I believe you only have the styles/quantities for the gen 2 LS. Gen 1 uses festoon type bulbs (not 168/194 style) in the overhead lights.

Anything on the ABS-Cruise and Steering wheel radio control's issue? I remember reading a thread long ago about it being a worn cable inside the steering wheel or something like that?
Symptoms are:
Cruise control will not power on,
Volume up/down will fast forward the cassette or change station,
Horn works 1 out of 10 times when I get crazy and smash the center of the wheel,
and the ABS light is on all the time.

That would be a clockspring issue.

Updates:

Please be away about ordering parts from LSK or lskoncepts.com

The site is up and the parts appear to be in stock but they do not ship. We are unaware of the actual status of this company but there have been many complaints about never receiving parts

Just to avoid headaches do not order from them until we have found they are reliable again. I am not trying to down play the company just warning you about issues before you have them.

If you have any questions please let us know.

see this post as an example

BRAKES:
http://www.lincolnvscadillac.com/showthread.php?t=83752


Sorry but life gets in the way. Next two days I take over for my mother’s caretaker while she goes home so I’ll be out of communication and trying to do other things.

You’ve done your homework. The aftermarket tends to be a sandtrap of truth. I’ll point to Mr. Classer’s statement that no rotors have been made in the US since the 80’s. It wasn’t until 06/07 when Raybestos and Federal-Mogul closed their aftermarket foundries and machining facilities in the US to move them to China. Some OE casting and machining is still done in the US. TRW is importing their A/M rotor from their eastern European plant if I’m not mistaken.

The price pressures of stores like Advance / Autozone / O’Rileys and the environmental restrictions have just forced the manufacturing out of this country. As you can see from this forum there is great interest in buying eBay products at a low price more for appearance and cost then for performance.

In the end what it comes down to is who are the companies that take pride in what they market, who are going to control the casting process for quality issues, and produce a rotor that is machined to OE tolerances. That is becoming harder as years go by.

Rotors have been cast from G2500, G2500a, G3500, G3500b, G3500c, etc. The grades will vary the carbon content to be more resistant to thermal checking or cracking and deformation. But even if you know the grade the process can alter the crystalline structure within the casting, or the heat treating process can vary the hardness. The quality of the casting pattern can affect the consistency of the rubbing discs of the disc assembly. There are just a lot of variables that make, or break a rotor’s functionality. So just like friction material, you often get what you pay for.

I tend to stay with prime foundation brake manufacturer’s parts in the aftermarket, companies like Continental (ATE), Bosch, TRW (Kelsey-Hayes) and Brembo when I can. But for reference I have a stack of OE rotors for my F-350 sitting in my shed as I have not found any aftermarket sourced rotor to be up to the standard of an OE supplied rotor. Note that the Lincoln “Motorcraft” rotors are not OE, but supplied by Federal-Mogul (Wagner) through the Ford Motorcraft program, not a bad rotor, but not OE.

I always buy solid surface rotors (not to mean non-vented rotor) if the vehicles came that way. Unless you are Autocrossing and need the lighter weight, I stay away from drilled rotors completely. Just no street benefit. Slotted rotors will give you a means to reduce wet brake delay on application. It will also benefit a situation where the friction temperature is reaching the point where the composite is outgassing. However, if you are using a quality brake pad then the outgassing temperature will exceed any typical aggressive driving situation save going through the mountains with your hair on fire.

If you want slotted rotors for the looks, fine. They are a concern for getting the turned, but I’m to the point that I rarely recommend that anyone get rotors turned. If you are going to have them done on a bench lathe, just throw them away. On-car lathe, much better but is the operator trained to look for hard spots and is the finish going to be within OE specs? A pretty big study by two companies showed that 90% of the time shop work is too coarse.

Anti-corrosion coatings are good for the hat and vane sections (if applied there), but do no good on the rubbing surfaces. Cryo treatments, well, based on my former director who worked at Ford’s Scientific Research lab, it’s good until the rotor’s heat cycles negate it in about a week.

When you start looking at the aftermarket specialty companies it becomes very hard to see through the sales BS.

One of the biggest factors in how the rotors contribution to brake functionality is often overlooked. What is the installed runout? Can make an average rotor work great, and a “all the bells and whistles” rotor to be characterized as junk.

I was looking at Continental's ATE rotors too. Ended up with the OE front rotors I had (in the shed) and the Motorcraft rear rotors. Maybe next time.

^ I just did my LED conversion using carid.com bulbs. All of them fit except the glove box & license plate bulbs (they were too long)... so I'll have to find some shorter ones elsewhere. I really only tried carid because vleds is always out of stock but they look amazing.

I have compiled a list of theads dealling with some of the most popular topics. This is not every thread covering every topic but it is still usefull information. /QUOTE]

Hello! I just purchased an 02 LS. I read through most of these posted threads, but was looking for one about the heater not working. I see some about the A/C blowing hot, but nothing about the heat blowing cold. Could you point me in the right direction? I did figure out how to pull the codes, but I couldn't seem to google a list of what they meant! Thank you :)
