    I'm upgrading my headlamp switch to a 2016-2021 headlamp switch from a Mustang. My car is a base model so it doesn't have fog, Auto lamps, or DRL's. What i need help with is the pinout for the dimmer and headlamp switch. Does anyone know what color wires go to what? The switch I'm using has Fog...
  2. Super Coupe
    Howdy folks i was wondering if the 95 SC would be a good trade coming from a new 5 series I love the MN12s and I had a 97 V8 and miss it dearly. This seller has a back 95 and I was curious are these cars prone to HG problems? And how reliable are they as I plan on this being a project daily thanks!

    Hello. I recently purchased my first Thunderbird. This is a 1996 with the 4.6. It has been neglected for a few years. After fixing the brake light switch (and a few other essentials) I have it back on the road. I think it is a pretty cool ride.

    sorry for the re-post, but i did not post in the correct section to begin with. Hello there, my ole 89 thunderbird with the NA 3.8 has an issue where whenever the light fuse is in the running lights on the corners of the vehicles are stuck on. I think i narrowed it down to a bad dimmer switch...

    Just got a 97 Thunderbird LX from my boyfriends brother. He’s currently in the military so the car was sitting for quite some time.

    So I have a 1997 Thunderbird with the 4.6 l, and I have a fairly quick leak that appears to be coming from around the edges of my water pump. I had briefly noticed a small leak a few days ago, but it got much worse and lost a solid gallon of coolant on the way into work this morning. I'd like...

Any info...

    I have a limited slip diff in my Thunderbird, but the other day i was sliding and when i had spun around and slowed a lot suddenly it started 1 wheel peeling. I let off the gas and my limited slip diff came back but why did it cut out for that second? Is that how these are built or are the...

    I have a 1996 Thunderbird with a v8. Between 2-3 and 3-4 when i ease off the throttle during a shift the whole car shutters for a second, as if its going over a sudden bumpy road. Yet at the same time it never shifts hard or slips, not even at higher rpm. My mileage is 217k but the car runs like...

    I'm in the possession of an 89 Thunderbird with the 3.8, and it has no brake lights or power going to the brake lights when the pedal is pushed. I also believe it has a bad dimmer switch as when the light fuse is in the corner lights stay on, but while trying to make sense of the wiring, and...

    Hey everyone, I have a 97 tbird 4.6L 108,500 miles. Every so often I’ll get this weird idle where the rpm needle will go up and down while the car is parked. I’ve replaced the idle air control valve along with the gasket not too long ago so I’m confident that’s not the issue. Maybe the throttle...
