About the PAC RPK4-FD2201 Dash and Wiring Kit

PAC RPK4-FD2201

Your Ford pickup is a great truck, but the factory audio system leaves something to be desired. For a sound experience to match the excellence of your truck, you'll need to replace the factory radio, but the design of the truck's dash makes replacement difficult. PAC's RPK4-FD2201 dash and wiring kit allows you to install an aftermarket single- (2" tall) or double-DIN (4" tall) receiver in your truck's dash while retaining your Ford's factory amplifier, steering wheel audio controls, backup camera, USB port, aux in jack, and airbag light.

Your Ford pickup is a great truck, but the factory audio system leaves something to be desired. For a sound experience to match the excellence of your truck, you'll need to replace the factory radio, but the design of the truck's dash makes replacement difficult. PAC's RPK4-FD2201 dash and wiring kit allows you to install an aftermarket single- (2" tall) or double-DIN (4" tall) receiver in your truck's dash while retaining your Ford's factory amplifier, steering wheel audio controls, backup camera, USB port, aux in jack, and airbag light.  

Keep your factory display

The kit retains your truck's controls for climate and personalization features, relocating them so there's no need to cut the sub-dash. The steering wheel control adapter is built into the interface, allowing you to keep those convenient controls with compatible car stereos made by Alpine, Axxera, JVC, Kenwood, Clarion, Jensen, Pioneer, Sony, FUSION, Advent, Boyo, Dual, Lightning Audio, Rockford Fosgate, and Visteon. The kit's metallic black finish matches your Ford's dash.

Installation Note: You'll have to relocate the Ford climate control knobs, buttons, and circuit board. We recommend you call a professional if you don't have experience with this type of installation.

Great product and customer service! Got this quicker than expected and had the old one out, items transferred, and Feinstein under two hours. They also provided very good instructions to follow.

Pros: Simplicity, quality, looks OEM

Cons: Recommend an install video

Dash kit

Fit and finish are very good. Instructions are well written and informative. May be more than some people want to handle because it does take some time to get everything properly installed. If you have previous experience installing stereos or remote starts you should be fine.

Pros: Good fit and finish, well written insteuctions

Cons: None

2018 F150 BEWARE!

Craig from Du Quoin, Illinois on 10/11/2018

2018 Ford F-150 XL

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

If you have a 2018 F150 beware! I ordered this kit on 8/22/18 and when I received it the harness for the backup camera was the wrong one. I received the correct harness from Crutchfield it still doesn't work. Its now 10/11/18 and it still doesn't work because the third harness Crutchfield sent me was the wrong one again! Also, didn't receive any installation instructions in the box. Luckily, I could download them from the PAC website. Not very clear instructions, but I figured it out. Very disappointing purchase. I've ordered several car stereos from Crutchfield in the past and this may be the last.

Pros: The steering controls still work.

Cons: Seems cheaply made. Poor instructions.

Crutchfield response on 10/24/2018
We're very sorry for the trouble with this harness, Craig. After checking in with our Vehicle Integration Specialist, Darren, we corrected the year model for this installation package. Darren also suggested that our Tech Support group reach out to Craig with a solution that would work for his Ford, set up an exchange, and get an update on the backup camera situation.

Features

Vehicle Compatibility: The PAC RPK4-FD2201 includes everything you need to install a new aftermarket head unit in a 2015-2017 Ford F-150 or 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty truck with a 4.2" display - including a factory matched radio mounting dash kit, electronic interface module, wiring harnesses and adapters to retain important vehicle factory features like climate and steering wheel controls, stock backup camera, factory Aux and USB inputs, and stock amplifiers.

Make Model Year
Ford F-150 (all trim-levels with 4.2" screen) 2015-2017
F-250  (all trim-levels with 4.2" screen) 2017
F-350  (all trim-levels with 4.2" screen) 2017
F-450  (all trim-levels with 4.2" screen) 2017
F-550  (all trim-levels with 4.2" screen) 2017
Notes:
  • Works on trucks with factory 4.2" display radios only. Not compatible in trucks equipped with the factory 8" screen radio.
  • Does not retain Ford SYNC. Does not retain outside temperature display on factory 4" screen.
  • Once the factory radio is removed, the factory chimes will play through the small factory dash speaker and not the cabin speakers.

Factory Matched Dash Kit: The included factory matched dash kit will accommodate a Single-DIN aftermarket head unit using the supplied pocket or a Double-DIN aftermarket head unit without the pocket. The dash kit also utilizes the factory HVAC control knobs and buttons for a more factory look and experience.

Note: Transfer of the factory HVAC knobs, buttons, and circuit board is required.

Factory Amplified Sound System: The PAC RPK4-FD2201 lets you retain your Ford truck's factory amplified sound system when replacing the factory radio with a newer aftermarket head unit. Balance & Fade controls are also retained.

Factory Aux & USB Inputs: The PAC RPK4-FD2201 will retain your truck's factory Aux & USB inputs, if your new aftermarket head unit is equipped with a rear-panel Aux and USB input. A minijack-to-RCA adapter (sold separately) maybe required to retain the Aux input.

Notes:
  • Transfer of the auxiliary button panel is required.
  • Does not retain the auxiliary input in 2015 trucks equipped with SYNC.

Stock Backup Camera: The PAC RPK4-FD2201 will retain your truck's stock backup camera, if your new aftermarket head unit is equipped with a rear-panel composite video camera input. There are two backup camera retention harnesses, but one will be use based on the connector type in your vehicle.

Note: Does not retain factory cargo camera function.

Built-in Steering Wheel Control: The RPK4-FD2201 will retain your truck's factory steering wheel controls (SWC) and allows you to program two radio functions to each SWC button by using short press long press dual command functionality (no separate steering wheel adapter is required). Your new aftermarket head unit will need to support steering wheel control.

Navigation Outputs: The PAC RPK4-FD2201 also provides data bus driven Navigation outputs - such as vehicle speed sensor (VSS), reverse trigger, and parking brake - making the installation of an aftermarket navigation head unit simpler and less time consuming.

Radio Dip Switches: The radio dip switches on the back of the included interface module must be adjusted to the proper radio setting before plugging the interface into the vehicle. The RPK4-FD2201 is compatible with Alpine, JVC, Kenwood, Clarion, Pioneer, Sony, Dual/Axxera, Jensen, and other aftermarket radios (see owner's manual for appropriate dip-switch setting).

RadioPRO App: PAC offers a Windows compatible RadioPRO App software program to help you configure the interface. Use of the RadioPRO App allows you to do the following.

  • Red/White wire output behavior.
  • Aftermarket radio Parking Brake Sequencing
  • Update Product Firmware
  • Read Firmware/Hardware Versions
  • Access Product User Manuals
Note: The interface must be connected to the vehicle and your Windows laptop when using the RadioPRO App.
