Vehicle Compatibility: The Metra 99-5846B includes a dash
kit, touchscreen display with built-in radio replacement interface module, plus comes with
wiring harnesses and adapters that allow the replacement of the factory radio
(w/ 4.2" screen) in your 2013-2014 Ford F-150 with an aftermarket head unit,
while retaining important factory features.
Single or Double-DIN Dash Kit: The included kit features high-grade
ABS plastic and is contoured to match your vehicle's factory dashboard color and
texture. The dash kit will fit most single-DIN or Double-DIN aftermarket head
units. Single-DIN radios will mount with the included pocket. Double-DIN radios
will mount without pocket. The Metra 99-5846B
allows for installation of your new aftermarket head unit in the upper or lower
area of the dash kit.
4.2" LCD Touchscreen (w/ Climate Control & Vehicle Settings):
The Metra 99-5846B includes a 4.2" touchscreen display which mounts in the dash
kit. Push-button controls are mounted on either side of the 4.2" LCD
touchscreen. The 4.2" LCD touchscreen and push-button controls let you retain
climate and vehicle customization functions that are normally lost when removing
the factory radio are retained. The kit also includes an integrated hazard
button and passenger airbag light.
Retained Features: The Metra 99-5846B's radio replacement interface
module is built into the touchscreen & push-button control interface. The
following factory features are retained -
- Ford SYNC: The 99-5846B will retain the Ford SYNC system
(including USB & Aux) through your aftermarket radio's rear-panel Aux input
(a minijack-to-RCA may be required - sold separately).
Your aftermarket radio must be set to the Aux input to hear SYNC functions.
- Factory Amplifier & Sub: The Metra 99-5846B will retain your
vehicle's factory amplifier and sub, along with balance and fade control.
- R.A.P. (Retained Accessory Power): RAP (Retained
Accessory Power) keeps the radio powered on after the key is off, until the
driver door is opened or the OEM timer ends; whichever happens first. The
99-5846B will retain this factory function.
- Steering Wheel Controls: The Metra 99-5846B lets you
retain your vehicle's factory steering wheel controls when used with a SWC
compatible aftermarket receiver (no additional adapter
- Factory Backup Camera: Your vehicle's factory backup camera is
retained through the Metra 99-5845B. You can choose to have the camera
display on the 99-5846B's 4.2" LCD touchscreen or your aftermarket head
unit's LCD touchscreen. If you want the factory backup camera to display on
your aftermarket radio's LCD touchscreen, the head unit must have a
composite video camera input.
Note: There is a female composite video connector labeled "AUX video"
which will not be used.
There is also a multi-pin DIN connector which will not be used.
+12V/10A Accessory Output: In the 2013-2014 Ford F-150,
there is no 12-volt accessory wire in the factory harness, so the 99-5846B is
designed to provide a 12V/10A switched accessory output (red wire). Otherwise,
you would need to run an accessory wire to the fuse box or underneath the
steering column when installing an aftermarket radio
Navigation Outputs: The Metra 99-5846B provides wired
outputs for navigation radio installation; including a VSS (vehicle speed
sense), Parking Brake, and a Reverse Gear output to make installing an
aftermarket navigation head unit simpler and less time consuming.
