About the Metra 99-5718 Dash and Wiring Kit
You bought a 2000-03 Taurus or Mercury Sable — great car, but its console makes it impossible to upgrade the factory radio. Metra's kit allows you to install an aftermarket single- or double-DIN receiver in the dash, while maintaining all electronic climate controls, including heating, ventilation, and air conditioning — even the heated seats and compass if your model has them.
The kit features backlit soft-touch buttons that let you access all climate controls found in your Taurus or Sable, and it's a perfect match for the color, texture, and contours of your dash. You'll also get an LCD display just like the one in your Taurus. The package also includes all harnesses and antenna adapters needed for the installation. Warranty: 1 year.

2000-2003 Ford Taurus Installation Kit: The Metra Turbo 2 Installation Kit (99-5718C) is designed specifically for the 2000-2003 Ford Taurus (with auto climate controls).

The 99-5718C installation kit also retains all factory climate control functions with soft touch buttons and LCD display. All harnesses and antenna adapters are included.
Crutchfield Wiring Harness: Crutchfield wiring harnesses prevent you from having to cut your vehicle's factory radio plug when replacing your factory radio with an aftermarket head unit. Simply solder or crimp the Crutchfield wiring harness to your aftermarket head unit's harness (solder & crimps not included), plug the aftermarket head unit's plug into the rear chassis of the aftermarket head unit, and plug the Crutchfield wiring harness into your vehicle's factory radio plug.
Note: Installation tools, hardware, & accessories are not included & sold separately. Please see the Accessories tab for recommendations & availability.
Wiring Notes: If the Crutchfield wiring harness is not equipped with a ground wire, you will need to ground the aftermarket head unit's ground wire to the metal chassis of your vehicle. Some vehicle's may require you to bypass the vehicle's factory amplifier (in another location from factory radio) or hardwire certain connections. If your vehicle is equipped with factory steering wheel controls, an additional adapter is required & sold separately.
