Features

Dash Kit: This kit allows you to install an aftermarket receiver into 1997-2000 Ford Escort and 1997-99 Mercury Tracer models without factory amplifiers. Three circular openings below the receiver slot accommodate the factory Fan Control switch, Temperature Control switch and Vent Control switch. The rear defrost switch is also located on the front of the kit. Attached to the rear of the kit are several wires, some of which plug into factory harnesses and others that need to be spliced into the wiring of the new receiver.

Power Adapter Plug: Attached to the back of the kit is a set of wires and the Power Adapter Plug. This gray 6-pin plug connects to a matching factory harness. Five 6" wires coming out of the plug need to be spliced to the new receiver's wiring harness.

Rear Defrost Wiring: Attached to the back of the kit is a 3-pin wiring plug for reconnecting the factory Rear Defrost wiring harness.

Speaker Wiring Adapter: Supplied with the kit is an 8" Speaker Wiring adapter. The black plastic end of the harness plugs into the vehicle's factory speaker harness. The bare ends of the harness need to be spliced to the speaker output wires of the new receiver.

A
I thought it best to stick with the recommended items. The cost was better than anywhere else when bundled with the new radio. Also, I was impressed overall with Crutchfield's complete setup for all necessary parts for this installation. The alternative was to piece it togther from other sources. Frankly, I was not seeing any savings in that. Finally, should I need support, I know that I can reference a Crutchfield item # and order for faster answers. [ Joseph  Aug 14, 2016 ]
