Our take on the Metra 99-5719 Dash and Wiring Kit

by Zak Billmeier

You bought a 2004-07 Taurus or a 2004-05 Mercury Sable — great car, but its console makes it impossible to upgrade the factory radio. Metra's kit allows you to install an aftermarket single- or double-DIN receiver in your dash, while maintaining all heating, ventilation, and air conditioning controls, even the heated seats and compass if your model has them.

The kit features backlit soft-touch buttons that let you access all climate controls found in the Taurus or Sable, and it's a perfect match for the color, texture, and contours of your dash. You'll also get an LCD display just like the one in your vehicle. The package also includes all harnesses and antenna adapters needed for the installation. Warranty: 1 year.

Features

2004-2007 Ford Taurus Installation Kit: The Metra Turbo 2 Installation Kit (99-5719C) is designed specifically for the 2004-2007 Ford Taurus (with auto climate controls). It allows installation of both double DIN and single DIN aftermarket head units. A storage pocket is included for DIN installs. The installation kit is painted a scratch resistant matte black finish. The 99-5719C installation kit also retains all factory climate control functions with soft touch buttons and LCD display. An airbag indicator light is also featured. All harnesses and antenna adapters are included.

Crutchfield Wiring Harness: Crutchfield wiring harnesses prevent you from having to cut your vehicle's factory radio plug when replacing your factory radio with an aftermarket head unit. Simply solder or crimp the Crutchfield wiring harness to your aftermarket head unit's harness (solder & crimps not included), plug the aftermarket head unit's plug into the rear chassis of the aftermarket head unit, and plug the Crutchfield wiring harness into your vehicle's factory radio plug.

Note: Installation tools, hardware, & accessories are not included & sold separately. Please see the Accessories tab for recommendations & availability.

Wiring Notes: If the Crutchfield wiring harness is not equipped with a ground wire, you will need to ground the aftermarket head unit's ground wire to the metal chassis of your vehicle. Some vehicle's may require you to bypass the vehicle's factory amplifier (in another location from factory radio) or hardwire certain connections. If your vehicle is equipped with factory steering wheel controls, an additional adapter is required & sold separately.

Install was easy

Written By Doug W, Granger, IN on Tuesday, December 31, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The unit fit well and was easy to install. The whole process of using this adapter to install a radio in a 2004 Mercury Sable, was pretty painless. The only knock on the product is the instructions could be a little clearer and more visual.
Pros:
Fit well, looks professional, all functions work as advertised
Cons:
Instructions could be clearer and more visual.

Easy Integration

Written By SpeCivic Boom, Bay Area, Ca on Friday, December 27, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I ordered this integration kit with a Pioneer DEH-X6600BT to be installed in my mother-in-law's Sable Wagon. The kit made so easy to transition from her stock sound system to the new head unit. She had the premium sound system with the upgraded digital climate controls. Maintained all controls and a clean look on the console. Great product!
Pros:
Easy integration from old to New Clean end result Maintained full climate control
Cons:
Intermediate knowledge of car audio installation and panel removal

Good product

Written By Ben, Westfield, MA on Wednesday, March 27, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Expensive kit if you don't buy a head unit with it. Overall good quality, seems sturdy. Looks much better than the kit with the rotary controls. Instructions were sort of shoddy, so when I got stuck on one thing Crutchfield tech support talked me through it without issue. Airbag wires need to be plugged into harness, the instructions don't tell you that. Best way to put a head unit in your Taurus/Sable.
Pros:
Looks good Sturdy Relatively simple
Cons:
Mediocre instructions

ford factory integration adapter ('04 Merc.LS premium)

Written By steve, bohemia, ny on Tuesday, January 15, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I installed this unit in a 2004 Merc. LS Premium to replace an in-dash cassette & 10 cd changer that didn't work. This piece enables you to install a standard aftermarket receiver while keeping almost all the climate control functions of the factory unit. It does not have a switch for the recirculate door (max ac) The unit actually looks better installed than the online pictures. The controls work well & the display is clear.The 1 star deduction is for the instructions sent with the unit. There are 2 wires coming off the unit for the passenger airbag light (with pins mounted) that have to be snapped into the multi-pin connector supplied, but the directions don't tell you where.(if you don't connect them, the car's diagnostics disables the airbags) Josh w/tech walked me through this. Also, half the instructions are for an adapter with rotary controls.
Pros:
Fine looking, functioning assembly
Cons:
sloppy instructions
