I'm sure you have it figured out by now, but it's a speed/volume control. My 05 has it. You have vol. how you want it, but when you slow down it will lower the vol. until you speed up again. I think it's 1-7 and mine's on 3.

Yeah I did. But I still do not like the feature. I'd rather play the music loud and annoy the passengers and guys next to me. Thanks!

The thing I didn't notice is that Ford moved the Mustang gas cap to the driver side of the car.

Darn the luck. My local gas station has a one-way traffic flow. I used to enjoy never having to wait in line since there aren't many cars that refuel on the passenger side.

Haha, im glad they did this. Having it on the opposite side just doesnt make sense. I hated walking around the car every fill up. Sucks when its 10 degrees out. jumo out, pump, jump in.

I do miss my old car, OBDI and I could let it run while pumping gas.

Question

I've enjoyed reading about all the little tidbits you all have learned about. Gives me some insight as to what lays ahead for me next week. I remember seeing something about 2 power points and I have know idea what that is making reference to. Help me out. The other question i have is a fairly simple one. Is there anything you would recommend doing before I drive my pony off the lot, such as adjustments, settings. I've already burned a CD for the drive home (175 mi) which include: I can't drive 55, I love my automobile, Mustang Sally ....

Dogstar, congratz on the upcoming addition, you WILL enjoy!

The two power outlets are cigg lighter holes without cigg lighters (unless you ordered the smokers 'upgrade')... one high on the dash and one in the mid compartment box. I routed my emg vehicle lights to the one in the box, not a wire to be seen... looks good but is temporary untill I get time to hard wire it to a switch on the dash somewhere...

I'm attaching a list we made long time ago... I'm sure there have been aditional issues since... it's almost one year old I think...

Yes there is a trunk release. It is on your key Fob. It will open the trunk with the key in the ignition and the engine on.
Try it.

re: Cruise Control, Tap UP / Tap Down

Tapping the SET+ or SET- buttons will adjust the cruising speed in 1 MPH increments.

I never knew it was that precise.

It's true - but I think it has to be below 15 miles. I only ran mine down that low once.

Yup, Stoenr was down to 11 miles when he posted his.
His oil gauge was also at 0, I hope the engine wasn't running
