#932 of 980 2004 Aviator side mirror lights won't turn off
Apr 27, 2011 (7:41 am)
I have an Aviator that the battery keeps dying. I noticed when I open my door the side mirror (turn signal orange lights) turn on, and they usually shut off after a few seconds. Mine won't shut off, and the battery is dead obviously soon after.
My headlights are in the off position. they do turn off when I turn the headlights on, but then the headlights stay on, so that doesn't help.

mine started doing the same EXACT thing today. It has done it 5 times, but starts right back up with no problems. It's so weird. I would love to know what is going on.
#934 of 980 Coils being replaced at 98,000. What else needs to be done?
May 24, 2011 (11:38 am)
Hi there - Just had coils 4, 6 & 7 replaced. My '03 Kitty Hawk Aviator is at 98,000 miles. The chk engine light and dings were coming on at 97,000 and the dealer "reset" something. I'm off to get it inspected finally. What else should I make sure is done before it goes out of the "Customer Satisfaction" bulletin at 100,000 for coils. It is not under an extended warranty, so if it is heads or whatever it is called, I'm in trouble!

I would check the wheel bearings, driver's heated seat, the 'back-up warning system,' and all normal things like brakes and such.
Had many coils replaced as well.

I would replace the spark plugs and check for rear axle wear. I just hit 112,000 on my Kitty and it runs like new. Rear axle starting making noise at 105 and it cost me 3k to replace both. You can purchase brand news coils on Ebay real cheap. Why not replace then all. Keep all oil changes going at specified intervals. Engine, transmission, front and rear cases, etc. I consider this money well spent for a vechicle that runs like new at 112,000 miles.

My driver's side rear window only goes down (and up) when there is high humidity, causing me to believe that a connector just needs to be cleaned. It doesn't matter whether I use the window switch between the front seats or the rear door window switch.
How should I troubleshoot this? I.E. Start with the front switch, clean, move to door.. or vice-versa, or some other method.
Any thoughts, diagrams would be much appreciated.
#939 of 980 03 Aviator AC not working on front passenger side only

My 03 Aviator's AC is working everywhere but the front passenger side. It blows hot air out of those vents. Why would this be happening? Any replies are greatly appreciated!
#940 of 980 03 Aviator Engine Issues
Jul 31, 2011 (11:17 am)
My Aviator isn't running right. When driving it pulls at times especially when I'm going uphill. When stopped it starts to feel like it's going to quit by shaking a little. This doesn't happen all the time but it shouldn't be happening at all. When I need to get around someone and step on it there's a lag before it takes off. It didn't do that before. Also, when the AC is on it's worse because it happens more often when on. The check engine light isn't on and I just got a brand new radiator. This issue was happening before I got the radiator so I know it's not something that happened during that repair. What could possibly be wrong? I really appreciate any replies
