Retain your vehicle's factory features with a new radio

You want to install a new car stereo in your Ford, but you don't want to lose the useful features built into your factory radio. The Axxess AX-ADFD02 harness works directly with the AX-ADBOX1 or AX-ADBOX2 interfaces to give you the ability to connect your new radio to the existing wiring in your vehicle and keep your factory features working. You'll keep the features you've become accustomed to, such as Bluetooth®, safety warning chimes, Retained Accessory Power (RAP), your factory amp (if present), and the SYNC® system.

Important Installation Notes: You must use this harness with the AX-ADBOX1 or AX-ADBOX2 interfaces to install your car stereo. Your new car stereo must also have a rear auxiliary input to retain the SYNC system. If your Ford has a digital amplifier, you will lose your ability to fade from front to rear with this adapter.

Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if the AX-ADFD02 and its accompanying interface are compatible with your vehicle. Warranty: 1 year.

Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts — please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so. You can also call an Advisor for more information.

2014 Ford Focus

Written By Randall R, Arizona on Tuesday, February 24, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used this on my 2014 Ford focus SE Hatchback without any problems whatsoever. Installation was simple and easy with the given instruction manual. There are other brands to be used, but I found this particular brand (Axxess) more appealing in reading other users and installer write ups.

Pros: A made for Ford product that delivers what it promises.

Cons: None.

Features

Compatibility: The AX-ADFD02 must be used with the Axxess AX-ADBOX1 or AX-ADBOX2 Auto-Detect System Interface (sold separately) when replacing your factory radio with an aftermarket stereo in a Ford Explorer (2012-up), Fiesta (2011-up), or Focus (2012-up); as of 8/29/2013.

Note: Your aftermarket head unit must be equipped with a rear-panel AUX input (RCA-to-3.5mm adapter may required, sold separately). Please consult Crutchfield's Vehicle Selector to see if your vehicle is compatible.

Ford SYNC Retention: In conjunction with the Axxess Auto-Detect System Interface (sold separately), the AX-ADFD02 helps to retain all functions of the Ford SYNC system; including Voice Recognition Music Search, USB, iPod, Auxiliary Input, Bluetooth Phone & Audio Streaming, Turn-by-Turn Navigation, 911 Assist, and Vehicle Health Report. To retain theses features your aftermarket head unit must be equipped with a rear-panel AUX input (RCA-to-3.5mm adapter may required, sold separately).

Factory Amplified/Non-Amplified Compatible: The Axxess AX-ADFD02 can be used in vehicles with or without factory amplifiers, including digital amplified systems found in Ford vehicles (such as Sony/THX). Both balance & fade control are retained when used with AX-ADBOX1 interface (sold separately). The AX-ADBOX2 interface (sold separately) does not retain fader in vehicle's with factory digital amplifier.

R.A.P (Retained Accessory Power): The ignition power source of many vehicles keeps the radio on until one of the doors is opened. This feature is called the R.A.P. (retained accessory power). The AX-ADFD02, along with the Axxess Auto-Detect System Interface (sold separately) is designed to retain this feature.

Optional Steering Wheel Control Interface: The AX-ADFD02 features a right-angle 3.5mm connector that lets you keep your vehicle's OEM steering wheel controls via the optional Axxess Steering Wheel Control Interface (120ASWC1, sold separately).

22-/12-Pin to 24-/16-Pin Harness: The AX-ADFD02 Ford harness is fitted with a 22-pin connector which plugs into the Axxess Auto-Detect System Interface (sold separately), a 12-pin connector that plugs into the Axxess Steering Wheel Control Interface (sold separately), a 24-pin connector and 16-pin connector which plugs into your Ford vehicle's factory radio harness. There is also two sets of RCA cables that will need to be connected to the rear-panel AUX input of your aftermarket head unit (only one set will be used based on whether your vehicle has SYNC system or Aux input). In addition, 8 bare wire leads will need to be hardwired to your vehicle's wiring and aftermarket radio harness.
