About the Metra 99-5716 Dash and Wiring Kit
You bought a 2000-2003 Ford Taurus or Mercury Sable, but its dash design makes it impossible to upgrade the factory radio. Metra's 99-5716 kit allows you to install and connect an aftermarket DIN-sized (2" tall) stereo while maintaining all the original manual climate controls.
The kit is a perfect match for the color, texture, and contours of your vehicle's dash. Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this model is compatible with your vehicle. Warranty: 1 year.

Vehicle Compatibility: The Metra 99-5716 Dash & Wiring Kit is designed specifically for the 2000-2003 Ford Taurus or Mercury Sable with manual A/C. Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible and what additional accessories or tools you will needed.
Dash Kit: The Metra 99-5716's dash kit is constructed of heavy duty ABS plastic and designed to match the texture, contour, and paint of your factory panels. The dash kit accommodates a "single-DIN" (2") aftermarket head unit. The dash kit also retains your vehicle's climate controls by integrating three circular openings below the receiver slot that accommodate the factory Fan Control switch, Temperature Control switch, and Vent Control switch. The rear defrost switch is also located on the front of the kit. Attached to the rear of the kit are several wires, some of which plug into the factory harnesses and others that need to be spliced into the wiring of the new receiver.
Amp & Tuner Harness: The Metra 99-5716 also includes a 15' amp & tuner harness which will need to be wired behind the new aftermarket radio and run to the trunk of the vehicle where the factory tuner and amp is installed.
