Hello guys I've been reading up on ford mods for the past 3 months and man has it helped me out modding my Ford.. THANKYOU to everyone.. :D :D
I just got a Ford High Series Instrument Cluster from ebay for my low series ford EF wagon and I have read up on how to put it in and that is no problem....
But there has been alot of talk on the door sensors, talk on diagrams for them and how easy or hard they are to install.. The problem is, that i have been reading & reading & reading topics and posts regarding solutions to install them with talk on diagrams for installation, but I have found no real hard evidence and pictures on putting them in to stop the doors on cluster showing they are open...
Maybe I have missed a proper topic on the matter making it easy to install, But I have read up on some but not helpful enough to start doing it...

Thankyou in advance for any help on making this project work for me
Dazzat :wink:

I have a tech doco being proof read by some of the FM members. Once that has been completed I will place the link on the forum.

Why don't you get Ugly Bob to buy a wrecked LTD the next time he goes to auction? That way you can grab all the sensors in one shot! :D

might be worth it for diff/engine/sunroof though! :P

i just noticed the critical 'wagon' word there! lol

would be interesting to see if you could wire the boot/tailgate latch the same way!
