About the Metra 99-5719 Dash and Wiring Kit

You bought a 2004-07 Taurus or a 2004-05 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 your dash, while maintaining all heating, ventilation, and air conditioning controls, even the heated seats and compass if your model has them.

You bought a 2004-07 Taurus or a 2004-05 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 your dash, while maintaining all heating, ventilation, and air conditioning controls, 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 the 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 vehicle. The package also includes all harnesses and antenna adapters needed for the installation. Warranty: 1 year.

Metra 99-5719 Dash and Wiring Kit

Alan from Fort Mill, SC on 1/8/2019

2005 Ford Taurus SEL

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Kit was great. Wiring was labeled as expected and was essentially plug and play. My only complaint was that the harness was missing the actual plug to go to the new radio. Now, I had ordered the wrong harness a week earlier and this was a replacement. I was able to use the plug off of the wrong harness and complete the job. They took the wrong harness back with no questions asked and actually overnighted the correct harness.

Pros: Easy and detailed instructions. Everything was wired and labled as expected.

Cons: Missing the small plug to the new radio but was rectified with no problem.

if you are considering this dash kit order it from Crutchfield their customer service is awesome. The first dash kit I received was defective (some of the lights quit). I called Crutchfield and they sent me a new kit right away at no charge as long as I had the old dash kit returned with in 14 days and they paid for shipping both ways. it is a nice dash kit but the instructions are not the best so do your self a favor and check the internet for tips before you get started or just call Crutchfield they will be glad to help. Please keep in mid just because some one is selling this product cheaper in the long run it may not be worth it, and that Crutchfield is a reputable and they stand behind what they sell.

Pros:

Cons: instructions

Does the job

Seth from Torrington ct on 10/2/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

It works and it's the only option. It is a little cheezey but not terrible. Be prepared to do some improvs as the directions stink and you will need to cut metal dash support and there is no place for the inside temp sensor. It is what is as they say. You either need to make something or use this.

Pros: It works

Cons: It's cheezey

Instructions are awful

Craig from Pennsylvania on 5/4/2015

2005 Ford Taurus SEL

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I feel that the other reviewers give this product far too easy of a time. The instructions do not tell you where in the connector you are supposed to put the Passenger Airbag Deactivation light wires. If not connected your airbag warning light will be lit, and blink code 18 on start up. To me it is completely unacceptable for a product to have instructions that just omit such a simple detail. I still haven't figured out where those wires go, and will be contacting Crutchfeld support to figure it out and get rid of the warning light.

Pros: -Automatic climate controls still work just fine. -While it doesn't look as clean fitting as the factory stereo/climate controls, it mounts nicely and looks good enough.

Cons: -Instructions do not tell you where the Passenger Airbag Deactivation light wires are supposed to be put in the connector. If not wired correctly this will light the airbag warning light that is located on your tachometer (On a 2005 Taurus).

Easy to install; looks okay

Matt H. from Ashville, OH on 1/11/2015

2005 Mercury Sable LS

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This product was very easy to install and the directions were straightforward. I'm a novice and this was simple. Only issue with the installation was that there were not any directions indicating what to do with the spare 2 wires that were connected to anything. After installation, my airbag light went on and I realized those 2 wires were for the airbag indicator light on the passenger seat. The directions did not say where to put those but I was able to find out by going out to Ford forums on the internet and put them into the appropriate place on the harness. From a design perspective, this product is functional but it does look "cheap" compared to the original stereo and climate control system. But, it works and I have a much better stereo now.

Pros: Easy installation; functional

Cons: Instructions did not indicate what to do with the red and black wires with the unit. Does not look at good as the original setup.

Install was easy

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The unit fit well and was easy to install. The whole process of using this adapter to install a radio in a 2004 Mercury Sable, was pretty painless. The only knock on the product is the instructions could be a little clearer and more visual.

Pros: Fit well, looks professional, all functions work as advertised

Cons: Instructions could be clearer and more visual.

Easy Integration

SpeCivic Boom from Bay Area, Ca on 12/27/2013

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I ordered this integration kit with a Pioneer DEH-X6600BT to be installed in my mother-in-law's Sable Wagon. The kit made so easy to transition from her stock sound system to the new head unit. She had the premium sound system with the upgraded digital climate controls. Maintained all controls and a clean look on the console. Great product!

Pros: Easy integration from old to New Clean end result Maintained full climate control

Cons: Intermediate knowledge of car audio installation and panel removal

Good product

Ben from Westfield, MA on 3/27/2013

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Expensive kit if you don't buy a head unit with it. Overall good quality, seems sturdy. Looks much better than the kit with the rotary controls. Instructions were sort of shoddy, so when I got stuck on one thing Crutchfield tech support talked me through it without issue. Airbag wires need to be plugged into harness, the instructions don't tell you that. Best way to put a head unit in your Taurus/Sable.

Pros: Looks good Sturdy Relatively simple

Cons: Mediocre instructions

ford factory integration adapter ('04 Merc.LS premium)

steve from bohemia, ny on 1/15/2013

2004 Mercury Sable LS Premium

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I installed this unit in a 2004 Merc. LS Premium to replace an in-dash cassette & 10 cd changer that didn't work. This piece enables you to install a standard aftermarket receiver while keeping almost all the climate control functions of the factory unit. It does not have a switch for the recirculate door (max ac) The unit actually looks better installed than the online pictures. The controls work well & the display is clear.The 1 star deduction is for the instructions sent with the unit. There are 2 wires coming off the unit for the passenger airbag light (with pins mounted) that have to be snapped into the multi-pin connector supplied, but the directions don't tell you where.(if you don't connect them, the car's diagnostics disables the airbags) Josh w/tech walked me through this. Also, half the instructions are for an adapter with rotary controls.

Pros: Fine looking, functioning assembly

Cons: sloppy instructions

Features

2004-2007 Ford Taurus Installation Kit: The Metra Turbo 2 Installation Kit (99-5719C) is designed specifically for the 2004-2007 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 99-5719C installation kit also retains all factory climate control functions with soft touch buttons and LCD display. An airbag indicator light is also featured. All harnesses and antenna adapters are included.

Wiring Harness: This wiring harness prevents 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 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 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 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.

No. This kit is only recommended for use with the factory automatic (electronic) climate controls. If you have the manual climate controls, the Metra 99-5717 is the recommended dash mount kit: www.crutchfield.com/p_120995717/item.html

Q
Bought this, a new radio, and a pre-spliced wiring harness for a 2004 Sable LS. Simply unplugged the radio and harness, and plugged the new one in. All controls look to work, but looks like there is a battery drain going on where there was none before. Not a single factory wire was cut. What could be going on? Defective Metra kit?

Q
2005 Mercury Sable LS, want to go Double Din route. So does this kit bypass the factory amp and hook directly to the speakers ? If so, is there anyway to keep the factory amp, it does sound pretty good now, just want a more modern head unit.

Q
2005 Ford Taurus SEL - Instead of using this dash kit to replace my factory dash with electronic controls, is it possible to install a dash kit w/out electronic controls? I've noticed a significantly lower price for the dash kit w/out electronic controls, and I can live with rotating knobs for climate control if it means saving $100 or more.

It's a different type of plug for the ac connectors on the digital install kit got to have correct one
[ DOROTHY J  Dec 19, 2016 ]
A
I believe if you have the electronic controls in your model taurus the only way to have all of functions work is to install the electronic controls model. I tried this also and your climate control won't work.
[ Anthony  Dec 17, 2016 ]

If you have electronic controls you must use the kit with them. There Is no way to convert ot
