Crystal, the keyfob is the keyless remote. Some cars have the keyfob and key as one piece, the Mustang has a key and seperate keyfob. You are a good sport with all the joking around. I am still getting over the fact that my typing skills suck, the "shifter" is still fresh in my mind.

HA.. well considering that you guys are so nice to me I really don't feel that the joking is anything but all in fun.. I was just telling someone I love this because I am learning a lot. I never heard it called a keyfob .. that's weird.. I always called it keyless entry. lol :smilie

I don't use my fogs other than in rain, or fog.... A. It attracts cops on the highway, and B. (As you have noticed) they make ppl think it's your highs...

I'd still love to hook mine up to the highs though...

In regards to the trunk latch issue; someone said the items in your trunk are safer without a trunk release in your car, and it would be too easy for thiefs to pop your trunk from the inside if they took a knife and cut through your 'vert top to get inside. But couldn't they just pull your little tabs on your back seat, put the seats down and crawl in and steal your stuff, or pull the glow in the dark release and get in? You know bad guys; where there's a will there's a way.....

There is actually an adjustment tap on the rear of the light where the bulb goes into the assembly.

Pull off your radiator cover and towards the rear of the light, looking right up at you should be a gray or black phillips head screw...that's your light adjustment screw. Not sure which way is which, but rotating it left or right will fine tune your beams up or down. It's usually set right in the center of the screw's throw from the factory or adjusted slightly down. It's very simple.

Peace out!!

One of my fogs (driver's side) is aimed way too high, while the passenger's side is spot-on.

Both of my headlights are aimed too low.

I remember hearing somewhere that 80% or more of cars come from the factory with the headlights mis-aligned.

Interesting thread!
I was aware of the trunk release on the 'keyfob' just didn't think about using it while searching around inside for a darn release button. Duh. And the seatbelt 'holder' on the side of the seats... Wish I'd have known about that sooner. I'm only 5'5" tall, so I thought Ford had put the belts that far back for a daily back stretch exercise!!!

RDS...radio station display...didn't know that was there, will have to check it out today. What the heck is the "Compression" setting on the radio?? Is there a way to turn the key and have the radio on with the door open and NOT get the ding, ding, ding??

Read this in a post somewhere and it did appear to have an effect on throttle lag:
Turn the key on, slowly press the gas pedal to the floor and back, turn the key off, supposed to 're-measure' pedal movement. I did it in both settings of the key as I didn't know which one the post had mentioned. I was pretty skeptical of it actually working as there were only a few replies where I read about it. So I don't think it was a psychological 'fix'. Try it!!

Besides the rear seat not folding down in a vert, the bracing and top mechanism are directly behind the seat. You can't crawl into the trunk even if you were able to remove the rear seat. FYI.
