About the Metra 99-5718 Dash and Wiring Kit

You bought a 2000-03 Taurus or Mercury Sable — great car, but its console makes it impossible to upgrade the factory radio. Metra's kit allows you to install an aftermarket single- or double-DIN receiver in the dash, while maintaining all electronic climate controls, including heating, ventilation, and air conditioning — even the heated seats and compass if your model has them.

You bought a 2000-03 Taurus or Mercury Sable — great car, but its console makes it impossible to upgrade the factory radio. Metra's kit allows you to install an aftermarket single- or double-DIN receiver in the dash, while maintaining all electronic climate controls, including heating, ventilation, and air conditioning — even the heated seats and compass if your model has them.

The kit features backlit soft-touch buttons that let you access all climate controls found in your Taurus or Sable, and it's a perfect match for the color, texture, and contours of your dash. You'll also get an LCD display just like the one in your Taurus. The package also includes all harnesses and antenna adapters needed for the installation. Warranty: 1 year.

Features

2000-2003 Ford Taurus Installation Kit: The Metra Turbo 2 Installation Kit (99-5718C) is designed specifically for the 2000-2003 Ford Taurus (with auto climate controls). It allows installation of both double DIN and single DIN aftermarket head units. A storage pocket is included for DIN installs. The installation kit is painted a scratch resistant matte black finish. The 99-5718C installation kit also retains all factory climate control functions with soft touch buttons and LCD display. All harnesses and antenna adapters are included.

Crutchfield Wiring Harness: Crutchfield wiring harnesses prevent you from having to cut your vehicle's factory radio plug when replacing your factory radio with an aftermarket head unit. Simply solder or crimp the Crutchfield wiring harness to your aftermarket head unit's harness (solder & crimps not included), plug the aftermarket head unit's plug into the rear chassis of the aftermarket head unit, and plug the Crutchfield wiring harness into your vehicle's factory radio plug.

Note: Installation tools, hardware, & accessories are not included & sold separately. Please see the Accessories tab for recommendations & availability.

Wiring Notes: If the Crutchfield wiring harness is not equipped with a ground wire, you will need to ground the aftermarket head unit's ground wire to the metal chassis of your vehicle. Some vehicle's may require you to bypass the vehicle's factory amplifier (in another location from factory radio) or hardwire certain connections. If your vehicle is equipped with factory steering wheel controls, an additional adapter is required & sold separately.

Q
Can you still perform the climate control self test with this unit installed like the factory? The sable had issues with climate control and it needs to be reset when the door gets stuck on heat. You have button combinations to press on original Ford climate controls to do this diagnostics and reset procedure so will this after market unit be able to do this?

I do not know. I never had to do a reset on the climate controls. As far as all the other functions of the climate controls they worked the same as before the install

Q
Can I see the installation instructions before I buy? I've been told this is a very complicated install and I want to see if I think I can do it.

It was not complicated at all.
[ VERNON W  May 26, 2015 ]
A
Sorry to say I chickened out and hired someone to do it. Part I was most concerned about was running wire forward from trunk where the stock radio is actually located to the dash. The car I bought it for died and I had to pay the same guy a second time to move it. I should have done it myself, but was pressed for time. The unit works well and it is nice to be able to listen to books on my iPad which the stock radio would not allow.

I have installed 3 kits. More timely than other kits but not that hard. Don M
[ Donald  May 19, 2015 ]

I don't know if you can see the install instructions first, but I can tell you the install is not very complicated at all. If you can install a radio and speakers you can definitely install this with no problems.
