Scosche's FD1380B kit allows you to install an aftermarket DIN-sized receiver in 2000-up Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable vehicles with the integrated factory radio/control panel. The kit replaces the panel, while maintaining the original climate controls and hardware.
The FD1380B includes the control panel, a radio/defroster harness, 18-foot Ford antenna extension cable, and 18-foot speaker extension cable. You must install the factory climate controls in the new panel. The Ford radio is merely a control unit — the amplifier and tuner are in the rear of the vehicle. You must run the included antenna and speaker cables from the new aftermarket receiver to the Ford tuner/amp unit.
