Product Research

Features

Compatibility: The Scosche FD1447AB "Custom Kit/Factory Fit" dash kit is designed specifically for the 2010-up Ford Taurus. This dash kit allows you to replace your Ford Taurus' factory stereo to improve the overall sound quality of your car audio system. The "Custom Kit/Factory Fit" installation kit incorporates a full color, touchscreen air conditioning controller and is configurable for single or dual climate controls. The kit plugs directly into the factory AC harness making for a quick and easy install without needing to cut or splice wires.

Automotive Grade ABS Plastic: Scosche's "Custom Kit/Factory Fit" dash kit offers automotive-grade components for seamless installation of almost any aftermarket head-unit to replace your Ford Taurus factory radio. This dash kit has been designed with high quality automotive grade ABS plastic to match the texture, contour, and paint of your factory panels.

Touchscreen AC Controller: In the 2010-up Ford Taurus, the factory radio and the air conditioning controls are incorporated into one unit, making it difficult to upgrade the factory radio with an aftermarket system. The FD1447AB kit makes is possible to update to an aftermarket in-dash head unit by integrating a touchscreen AC controller into the dash kit. The FD1447AB is configurable for single and dual climate controls. Operating climate controls include:

  • Climate controls (on/off)
  • Temperature control (manual/dual/auto)
  • Air flow/vent controls
  • Fan speed (up/down)
  • Air Condition (max/on/off)
  • Defrost/rear defogger
  • Heated/cooled seat controls

Single-/Double-DIN Compatible: The Scosche FD1447AB "Custom Kit/Factory Fit" dash kit accommodates a single-DIN mount head unit with included pocket, or a Double-DIN mount stereo.

Simple Installation: Installation of this kit is simple. No special tools are required, and the included step-by-step instructions will guide you through the install. The Scosche FD1447AB will include all the necessary hardware, including pre-installed factory style clips and a plug-in HVAC wiring harness.

Note: You will still need a Ford radio replacement interface module and harness, as well as an antenna adapter and steering wheel control interface (all sold separately). Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible and what additional accessories will be needed.

Firmware Upgradeable: The Scosche FD1447AB's HVAC harness is fitted with a male USB (type-A) connector for firmware updates only.

The ability to retain steering wheel controls with aftermarket receivers will be determined by the receiver you are using and the vehicle you have. For full information on this type of integration (including the parts you will need) please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.

Q
Does this work with the dual zone climate controls? The pictures seem to show 2 different versions of the kit.

Yes - it has settings for single and dual-zone climate control systems. I installed this in my 2011 Taurus with dual-zone climate controls. I've had it fo overr two years now and it's been working well. Highly recommend installing this with the ADS Maestro RR (and a head unit compatible with the RR as well) to simplify installation and retain Sync.

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see how everything integrates and what you will need for installation.
