Compatibility: The Scosche FD1447B "Custom Kit/Factory Fit" dash kit
is designed specifically for the 2010-up Ford Taurus. This dash kit allows you
to replace your Ford Taurus' factory stereo to improve the overall sound quality
of your car audio system. The "Custom Kit/Factory Fit" installation kit incorporates a full color, touchscreen air conditioning controller
and is configurable for single or dual climate
controls. The kit plugs directly into the factory AC harness making for a quick
and easy install without needing to cut or splice wires.
Automotive Grade ABS Plastic: Scosche's "Custom Kit/Factory Fit" dash
kit offers automotive-grade components for seamless installation of almost any
aftermarket head-unit to replace your Ford Taurus factory radio. This dash kit
has been designed with high quality automotive grade ABS plastic to match the
texture, contour, and paint of your factory panels.
Touchscreen AC Controller: In the 2010-up Ford Taurus, the factory
radio and the air conditioning controls are incorporated into one unit, making
it difficult to upgrade the factory radio with an aftermarket system. The FD1447B kit makes is possible to update to an
aftermarket in-dash head unit by integrating a touchscreen AC controller into the
dash kit. The FD1447B is configurable for single and dual climate controls.
Operating climate controls include:
- Climate controls (on/off)
- Temperature control (manual/dual/auto)
- Air flow/vent controls
- Fan speed (up/down)
- Air Condition (max/on/off)
- Defrost/rear defogger
- Heated/cooled seat controls

Fit" dash kit accommodates a single-DIN mount head unit with included pocket, or
a Double-DIN mount stereo.
Simple Installation: Installation of this kit is simple. No special tools are required, and the
included step-by-step instructions will guide you through the install. The
Scosche FD1447B will include all the necessary hardware, including pre-installed
factory style clips and a plug-in HVAC wiring harness.
Note: You will still need a Ford radio replacement interface module and harness,
