Overview: The PIE FRD04-DVD Ford OEM DVD Keeper Interface allows you to retain use of your OEM Ford/Lincoln/Mercury "Can-Bus" DVD player when replacing the factory radio with an aftermarket unit in select Ford/Lincoln/Mercury vehicles. In these vehicles, the factory DVD player will not turn on and/or some DVD control functions are lost when the factory radio is removed. The FRD-4-DVD provides the factory DVD with the necessary information that is normally provided by the factory radio in order to maintain its use and control functions. Using the FRD-4-DVD, the audio signal from the factory DVD is provided through a set of RCA connectors, for applications where the aftermarket radio being installed has an available auxiliary input port. The FRD04-DVD also features built-in audio adjustment circuitry with an output level of up to 2 volts RMS, allowing the installer to match the audio level of the factory DVD to the audio level of the AM, FM or CD modes of the aftermarket radio.

Compatibility: The FRD04-DVD Ford OEM DVD Keeper Interface is compatible with the following Ford/Lincoln/Mercury vehicles.

  • Ford:
    • 2006-2007 Explorer
    • 2005-2006 Freestyle
    • 2007 Expedition
    • 2008 F-250 Super Duty
  • Lincoln: 2006 Mark LT
  • Mercury: 2006-2007 Mountaineer
