  • 23.5" Ford/Lincoln/Mercury LCD harness

Product Research


Overview: The iSimple PGHFD1A LCD display harness is designed to connect the iSimple PXAMG Media Gateway Interface Module (541PXAMG, sold separately) using the PGHFD1 Media Gateway harness to select Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles for connection of iPod, Auxiliary source or HD Radio tuner (541HDTR, sold separately). The PGHFD1A harness along with the PXAMG (sold separately) and PGHFD1 harness (sold separately) allows audio playback, audio control and text display of your connected iPod or HDTR HD Radio tuner on select Ford/Lincoln/Mercury factory headunits.

Note: The PGHFD1A cannot be used as a stand-alone adapter; it requires the PGHFD1 (541PGHFD1, sold separately) to connect to the PXAMG (541PXAMG, sold separately) to your factory radio.

Vehicle Compatibility: The PGHFD1A harness retains the original system features such as satellite radio, rear seat entertainments, and most steering wheel controls (if equipped). The PGHFD1A harness is compatible with select 2005 to 2008 Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles that feature an LCD display without navigation. Your Ford, Lincoln or Mercury factory radio must be touch-screen, or feature an AUX or SAT button.
