Yeah the thing that strikes me as a bit confusing is that under the eligible ford partner company lists (http://www.pierreford.com/special.cfm?ID=2469-
this page may not be the law but it shows a list of companies and Pierre ford does a lot of X-plan deals) it shows Municipal Enterprises and Public Service Electric & Gas Companies and this is pretty much a blanket offer across the country as there are many Municipal owned companies across the nation and many public utilities. I worked for a public utility that is owned by the municipality so I thought it would be pretty clear that we belong under that criteria but many people say, "Well if you haven't been a partner before, you are probably not one." But I find that to be untrue.
It is hard for me to tell from your post, but I believe the problem may be that you do not quite understand how the acquisition of a Ford Partner PIN actually occurs.
I will try to explain: Dealers do not have any say in issuing a PIN. So it does not matter if your company is on the list and the Dealer knows it or not. The Dealer can do nothing as far as getting you a PIN, or assisting you in acquiring one.
It works like this: If you are an employee of a Ford Partner Company, your company has a Ford Partner Code. Ford Partner Company Employees (such as yourself if your company qualifies) get that code from their HR or Personnel Departments (if their HR/Personnel dept staff know how to do their jobs correctly).
Once the Employee has his company's Ford Partner Code, the employee then goes to the Fordpartner.com website, and inputs that code to acess the website. Once on the website, the employee can register for an X-Plan PIN, access X-Plan rules and information (like the information I have been giving you), browse Dealer inventory, etc etc.
Bottom line is, without that Ford Partner Code for your company, you can not get a PIN. So your HR rep needs to do his job, contact Ford and get your company's Ford Partner code. Until then, we are all spinning our wheels.
I am not sure if this information answers your question or not. I hope it at least makes the process a bit clearer.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
