Yep, welcome to the forum. Seeing as how you're in Miami, I have to ask if that's where you're from or did you move there from some place up north because you got tired of the cold winters??

You say it is a 2011 but it clearly has the 2010 side mirrors? It has the factory spoiler - best one IMO! The wheels look to be 2011 SX wheels - and the fog lights too. Need more info on your car...:)

Any engine mods - intake or exhaust?

Oh! nice Thank you!
So... it´s a SX 2.4 but in the Car title says 2011.
I have some doubts....
1) Where is the over head lamps fuse located at? they dont turn on.
2) Where can I find the sunroof switch. I already checked everything and it seems thet the issue is the switch.

Thanks in advance

It's very possible that a previous owner installed the 2010 mirrors - they are plug-and-play.

Just to be sure:

Do you have a "B" in the 6th position of your VIN?

I don't have a fuse box schematic handy - do you have your owners manual?

Sunroof switch - I can't find it separately - could be part of this assembly:

Hi Dude,
Yes I have a "B" in the 6th position VIN NUM.
Does it mean that it´s 2011 really?
I downloaded a Factory Service Manual Forte 2.4L _2011-2012-2013. There are Lots of electrical diagrams but just the over head ligth fuse doesn´t :(
In the future I would like to do a Stage 1. What you guys can tell me about that? some info?

Thanks!!

Ebay is your friend. So is your local junk/salvage yard.

If your dome/courtesy map lights don't turn on. Check the driver side fuse box panel.
