Our take on the PAC Auxiliary Input Adapter for Ford

by Jon Paulette

Add two sources to your Ford factory radio

This adapter allows you to connect two auxiliary audio sources directly to the factory radio on select 2005-up Ford, Lincoln, Mazda, and Mercury vehicles. With an RCA input and a 3.5mm minijack, you'll enjoy access to a wide variety of portable entertainment options on the road, including MP3 players, portable DVD players, handheld GPS, laptop computers, and gaming systems. The direct connection to your stereo means you'll also enjoy great sound.

Note: Your vehicle's radio must be equipped with (or be able to support) satellite radio. Non-navigation radios must have an "AUX," "Sirius", or "SAT" button to be compatible with this adapter. The adapter will NOT work with 2009 Ford, Lincoln, Mazda, or Mercury vehicles equipped with navigation or 2009-up vehicles equipped with Ford's internal satellite radio tuner. Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this adapter is compatible with your vehicle.

Perfect

Written By John, Jackson, MI on Sunday, June 22, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Love it I can't believe I waited so long to get this. It was extremely easy to hook up to my factory radio. It even came with two connectors so I could connect to different devices. I ran a cable to the backseat in case my kids wanted to use it to do something. I have one upfront. Cables are extremely long give you plenty it. Plugs right into your headphone jack of your phone. Even allow my phone to do hands-free calling.
Pros:
Works well, very easy to install. It's basic and he does what you needed to do. You cannot beat the price!
Cons:
Only drawback is it's pretty basic. Your control is the phone but can use Siri .

best thing since sliced bread

Written By Todd, Ottawa, OH on Tuesday, July 23, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Excellent product, extremely easy hook up to the factory unit. The sirius/xm works marvelous compared to using an fm modulator.
Pros:
Easy installation
Cons:
It would be nice if the usb port came with a wire as well. Not a deal breaker though.

PAC Auxiliary Input Adapter for Ford

Written By JR, Lufkin, TX on Wednesday, June 26, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It was enough to put it, but did not work. Tried to contact the manufacturer and tried to provide assistance on changing the switches, but to no avail. Decided to return instead.
Pros:
Too bad it did not come with a standard USB plug in. Trying to find an adapter was tough, so recommend ordering the conversion cable from mini USB male to standard USB female, so I could plug a standard USB into it. I wanted to be able to plug my iPhone into the radio through the interface.

Great Alternative to replacing a receiver

Written By Alec J, Minneapolis, MN on Friday, June 21, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Very happy with this adapter. I have a 2006 Explorer and the receiver didn't come with an AUX in. This product is a great alternative if you are happy with your current receiver, but simply want an AUX port. Great sound quality, fairly easy to install by yourself. Do not pay $50 to Best Buy, I have no experience installing audio equipment and this only took me about 45 minutes with a plastic knife and 7mm wrench.

*If you are having trouble fitting your receiver back into the dash, strategically place all the new harness and wiring along the back of the receiver and secure it using duct tape. - I had this problem and was the only frustrating part of the whole process.

Would recommend to anyone who doesnt want to drop $150 plus installation on a new receiver and installation kit.
Pros:
Fairly easy to install, great sound, reasonable price
Cons:
The only complaint I have is that the "master instructions" are only vehicle-specific in the way that they do not explain how to actually install the adapter; just how to remove the receiver. This should be specified. I would recommend using a youtube tutorial for installation.

Will this work on my 2004 Ford Expedition with a factory 6 disc in dash ? [ John  Dec 30, 2013 ]
1 answer
  • You will want to contact an Advisor by phone or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you. [ Jeff Staff  Dec 30, 2013 ]
