And it gets better — if you also have another sound source you want to hook up to your Ford's sound system, the DF-FORD20 provides a second set of connections for an iPod, satellite radio tuner, or DVD player. You can switch between sources with your factory radio controls. Warranty: 1 year.

Note: You may also need to purchase a pair of universal DIN tools to remove your factory radio. Please enter your vehicle information or call a Sales Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this adapter is compatible with your vehicle.

Features

Compatibility: The DF-FORD 20 allows you to add two auxiliary inputs to the factory radio in select Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, Mazda, and Nissan vehicles. The adapter plugs into the factory radio using the supplied cables, avoiding wire splicing and modifications.

Note: The adapter is not compatible with vehicles that have factory navigation or DVD systems. The adapter takes the place of the CD changer, so you cannot have a CD changer and the adapter connected to your vehicle at the same time.

Mounting: The adapter can be secured to any flat surface using the supplied mounting screws.

Connections: The adapter has two auxiliary inputs (Audio Input 1 and 2) on the left side panel. Each input consists of left and right RCA audio jacks. On the right side panel the adapter has a round 8-pin jack that interfaces with the supplied CAS-F12 cable. The opposite end of the CAS-F12 cable plugs into the CAS-F20 cable which plugs into the factory radio harness.

Cables:

  • CAS-F20: Rectangular 16 and 20 pin Molex plugs on each end (insert between factory radio and factory wiring); Rectangular 12 pin Molex input for CAS-F12 cable
  • CAS-F12: Rectangular 12-pin female connector on one end (plugs into CAS-F20 harness); Round 8-pin male connector on the other end (plugs into auxiliary input module)
