Overview

Our take on the Scosche FD1441AB Dash Kit

You bought a 2010-14 Ford Mustang without navigation — great car, but its console makes it difficult to upgrade the factory radio. This Scosche FD1441AB dash kit allows you to install an aftermarket DIN (2" tall) or double-DIN (4" tall) receiver in the dash panel, while retaining your car's factory heating, ventilation, and air conditioning control functionality.

Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts — please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so. You can also call an Advisor for more information.

It's an easy install and cleans the dash up from having all of the factory knobs. Only factor I do not like is the display in the pictures on the site show it showing Mustang in my upper display but in fact mine displays Dvd instead.

2014 mustang dash kit install

J.D. from Thibodaux, LA on 11/28/2016

2014 Ford Mustang
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Pretty simple install. Looks great. The reason I can't give it 5 stars is for two reasons. The A/C control touchscreen interface doesn't respond like I'd like it to. It's kinda sketchy. The other reason is the upper factory screen no longer displays the time or correct source. It only shows DVD and the outside temperature, at least the temperature display still works. I don't have a DVD player, so that's pretty dumb. Scosche advertises it showing "MUSTANG" on the display, but that is completely false. (Unless there's a firmware update or something I'm unaware of)

Pros:

Cons:

Clean look

Great product if you want to update your Mustang. I have a 2012 base convertible. And I wanted to upgrade the sound. This made the installation really simple. it took me 4 hours from start to finish. I used a PAC C2R-FRD1 Wiring Interface and added a Jensen VX7022 2 DIN Multimedia Receiver. Once installed the set-up was straight forward.

Pros: Easy Install - looks like factory original - allows simple upgrade in sound system.

Cons: ???

Not sure yet- firmware was outdated-

Jim from las vegas, NV on 2/24/2016

2012 Ford Mustang
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

firmware was outdated- installer needs another window to upgrade the hardware, until then I have no climate control

Pros: looks great!

Cons: however I do not have a DVD player installed- which shows on the upper LCD display and not sure about it's functioning, it's not communicating with the computer in my car until the firmware gets installed (which i need to take back to the installer to do- and finding an open window for me without work, as well as open window for them)

Pretty Good

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The first one I received, the on/off switch stuck in or out. Crutchfield was very prompt and trouble free sending a replacement. The product itself is not bad, but kind of cheap feeling, especially for the money. The display is functional but not crisp. It looks ok in the cabin, but not great.

Pros: It fits and does what it is supposed to.

Cons: Cheap looking display, not sure how long the unit will last before breaking or losing functionality, just feels cheap. Also overpriced.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was going to save for the iDatalink but decided I didn't want a touchscreen radio so I went with this along with a basic JVC single din. Easy install and works fine. The touchscreen is a tad delayed at times but it's not too bothersome. I've had a couple friends in my car since the install and they've all asked if it was stock and thought it was cool. I recommended it to one of them who just bought a mustang and they're going to go with it. great fit and finish. the factory screen does not say mustang on it just the outside temp and "DVD" in the corner but I really don't notice or care. I'm happy with it

Pros: easy install, easy operation

Cons: be patient with the touchscreen. slight delay at times

Nice but...

SteveG from Madison, AL on 7/7/2015

I can only give three stars due to deceptive advertising. All the pictures show the word MUSTANG displayed in the upper screen but that is not what you get. The ones being sold now have DVD offset to the left. This is disappointing because that is a selling point. Other than that, it is a very nice unit. It has good fit and the a/c controls work very well.

Pros: Nice fit, nice a/c controls, looks good except the upper screen

Cons: Deceptive advertising

Install made easy

This face plate made the install easy and it still gives it a clean factory look.

Pros: Great looking. Easy to install

Cons: None

WORKS PERFECTLY

Diegoh from New York on 6/21/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Okay so people have given this product bad reviews on other websites stating that it is buggy but it ISN'T. I don't know how people have installed this kit because for me it works flawlessly. Just remember to install the harness or set of wires that looks like it doesn't attach to anything to the back because if you do not plug that harness into the back of the kit then that is when the unit might become buggy.

Pros: Works like it should.

Cons: Brightness I wish the climate control screen was switched with the install location of the headunit

Perfect & Simple

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Exactly what my 2013 Mustang needed! Perfect fit, simple to install and connect. Matches nicely with the other dash panels. I now have a double din headunit with Bluetooth. The A/C controls are easy to get to, very visible and the touch screen is nice.

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: None

Great Dash Kit for Mustang - but no control over original OEM display

Dave Mc from South Carolina on 4/20/2015

2012 Ford Mustang
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great plate for your modern era Mustang - easy to install with no issues - however on the original OEM display (top display) you cannot control what is displayed - in many YouTube Videos and pictures of this plate you see "Mustang" or "Mustang GT" displayed which I would have preferred - however, this is not the case, instead it says DVD on the top left of the screen and the external temp on the right middle of the screen and the rest is blank - called the company and they said that the ability to display Mustang is no longer an option with no explanation. Another issue is this item even when ordering a stereo to go with it at 1/2 cost is Way, Way over priced - in my opinion, retail for it should be less than $100 without any specials.

Pros: Easy Fit both physically and wiring, easy DIY project. Great looking display for the environmental controls

Cons: PRICE - way to high, and not able to program the unit to allow for a change of display on the original Mustang OEM display screen.

Perfect Fit

Tobi from South Texas on 4/9/2015

2011 Ford Mustang
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought this so I could install a Kenwood stereo. It's a perfect fit and looks factory installed. Had problems with a/c control, but realized I forgot to install one wire used for firmware update. After that everything was fine. Haven't taken car out for extended road trip to see if there would be any defects. Will update if anything changes.

Pros: Fit, looks, easy installation.

Cons: Make sure you follow instructions and attach all wires or your a/c will not work.

Perfect Fit!

Scosche dash kit connected easily and fit perfectly in my 2012 Mustang. The touchscreen ability was a great bonus along with it's great look.

Cons: None.

Looks OEM, works like it should.

Pros: Nice fit, looks OEM. The buttons balance the touch screen and don't leave a lot of vacant area.

Cons: Would be nice to have custom colors on the buttons.

DO NOT BUY

Ian from Thousand Oaks, CA on 11/7/2014

2013 Ford Mustang
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Would not function in the heat. Anytime it was over 90 degrees outside the touch screen would not power on. How can you make something so expensive, and then have it fail to perform the only task it needs to. Seriously? The air conditioner is unusable in heat. Let that sink in for a minute. I'm beyond irritated. Never buying scosche ever again. Might as well throw my money in the trash next time, I'll be less disappointed.

Pros: Nothing. It's ugly, expensive, and can't function properly.

Cons: Everything.

Crutchfield response on November 18, 2014 Our Tech Support team reached out to help the customer. It sounds like kit is defective. We'll gladly replace it with a new one or with a different brand. Crutchfield Tech Support is included free with every purchase.

Required part

lcseds from Durham, NC on 4/4/2014

2013 Ford Mustang
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Needed this for my 2013 Mustang stereo install. I went with a half din so I could have a storage pocket. In a Mustang, extra storage is a big thing! Plug and play and it works great. Make sure you're done with the stereo before snapping it into place. I had to take it off as I had forgotten a connection, and ended up breaking the upper right tab that secures it to the dash (it goes on tight, which is a good thing). I hate rattles and was fearing the worst but the remaining tabs held it in tight.

Pros: Does what you need it to do

Cons: Different controls, but I just need to get used to them. Wish I could have kept the clock display

Looks like it came from the factory

Kirk from Ocean Springs, MS on 3/20/2014

2013 Ford Mustang
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This unit looks great and performs very well. Getting it with 50% off special (with purchase of a HU) from Crutchfield is a deal that is hard to beat. Install and set-up of the A/C controls was a breeze. I recommend this item to anyone upgrading a Mustang system.

Pros: Perfect match to the factory dash, simple installation and the new A/C controls look great.

Cons: The factory stereo display only shows compass and temp, it looks kind of odd with everything else blank. This isn't the kit's fault, but it does look strange.

Simple & clean with OEM look

Patrick C from Rockwall, Tx on 12/11/2013

2013 Ford Mustang
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellently constructed, flawless fit with superb features. This kit gives a great update to any mustang with manual A/C controls.

Pros: Easy install, clean fit with OEM look.

Cons: Head unit wiring kit not included. You must purchase this to wire in any radio you place in here & this is quite expensive to retain steering wheel controls & Sync functionality.

Clean Install

Duath from CA on 10/1/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to install and clean interface.

Pros: Perfect fit for the OEM interior.

Cons: Adjusting the A/C controls takes a little more time and the Double DIN install is at the bottom of the unit.

Nice & Easy

Negative from Upland, CA on 9/24/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great looking kit that really gives an "up-to-date" look to the interior of the mustang. Installation and setup is very easy. Climate control buttons feel solid, and touch screen tracks nicely.

Pros: Modernizes the interior look of the mustang, easy install/setup

Cons: Adjusting the fan position for the AC/Fan on the touch screen is a little weird. You have to cycle through all the positions when making changes (as opposed to being able to go back and forth between modes).

Great, Clean Kit

Very easy to install, looks clean but still special, and works well. Also comes with 1 DIN storage tray if you only want to use a 1 DIN receiver instead of a 2 DIN.

This will depend largely on your vehicle. For details on installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on what you will need for an installation. [ Kenny  Jan 17, 2017 ]  Staff
Apparently, that's the way they designed it, and it shows "DVD" and no options for "Mustang"- not sure on the steering controls, I don't have that luxury option, sorry [ James  Jan 05, 2017 ]
It can be removed. However if you're running a maestro data link (if your head unit supports it) it will show you song title and source on that led screen. On mine once the maestro was programmed all the steering wheel controls worked as they would with a factory head unit. [ Richard  Jan 03, 2017 ]
After installation the old screen on top will just show the outside temperature. Its pretty useless but I guess they included it since maybe you cannot have it disconnected or removed. I don't know if you can remove it or not, you'd have to try in your vehicle. I know for sure it has nothing to do with the steering controls though. You'd just buy a separate adapter for those controls and it plugs into the back of your new radio. [ Steve  Jan 03, 2017 ]
Touch the drivers seat heater #4 button touch on tft screen to turn drivers seat heater On/ off button button #6 on passengers seat will show status hope this helps that's all could find [ VICTOR  Feb 28, 2016 ]
For details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle. [ Krissy  Jan 23, 2015 ]  Staff
Fairly sure it will, I have a GT with manual controls & the touchscreen a/c works flawlessly. However pay attention to which audio harness you purchase with it, as not all support Sync & steering wheel controls. But this kit looks factory & is very well constructed. I mounted & removed it several times getting the new head unit perfectly aligned. The clips on this are superior to the factory ones as well & give a firm grip, so removing it is a little difficult. [ PATRICK B  Dec 11, 2013 ]
Sure the cat will work wonderfully and I am very impressed. alI've been in the car stereo industry's most of my life. simple installation a caution would be to cover up the end of your shifter before moving parts around to protect the face of the kit. [ JIM  Dec 11, 2013 ]
I also had the manual controls. It will work. The display is a little hard to read in direct sunlight though. I keep mine set to night mode it seems to be a little easier to see. [ DANIEL N  Dec 11, 2013 ]
I don't have a boss 302, but my 2013 base v6 has manual A/C and it worked great with that [ KEVIN W  Dec 11, 2013 ]
