    All you have to do is look on the Forums page and then look in the 2002-2005 Thunderbird Garage and scroll down until you see How to Install.

    Re: For the DIY people Out There

    I just ended a 16 year relationship with a 1984 Porsche 944 to get into something american, thus the 2004 Tbird. I would have never been able to complete that journey without the help of forums. I'm new here but trust me, this forum with all the excellent posters of information & references is far beyond whats available for other automobiles I've owned. BTW.......I love this Thunderbird. Needed a little "sorting out" .....I knew that at the purchase. All items accomplished were referenced from this forum. Thanks everyone for being there for me. Oh yea, if ya think parts prices are high for a Tbird.....try Porsche........OEM or aftermarket. WOW!

    Hi Wayne, and welcome to TBN!

    It's a simple re-set.
    Roll the window all the way down, and don't let go of the button for a short while (count to five), and roll the window all the way up, and keep holding that button down, for about the same amount of time. That should do it!!
    You also need to re-set the clock, and your radio stations (as with any other vehicle when you disconnect the battery).

    Hi fellow Birders. I have had my 2004 black bird since 2006, and love the car. I had two Lincoln LS's before that, so knew it would be a great car. I have had no problems except the COP situation which many have experienced. (I had the same problem with both Lincolns) I was fortuniate in that Ford replaced all 8 of the COP's under warrenty.

    I have a new problem now, and hope that some of you can help. I finally had to replace the original battery in the Bird. I bought a new battery from my Ford dealer, and replaced it, with minor skinned knuckles, and very little cursing! The problem: you know how when you open the door, the window drops about a half inch to let the door open, and then goes back up when you close the door, in order to make a tight seal. well, all was working fine until I replaced the battery. After reconnecting the battery, the window drops, when opening the door, but then won't go back up when the door is closed. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.

    Spence,

    This one could be an added value if you would like to remove your CD radio. I used it to
    remove it and fix it on my own.
