More details on the PAC C2R-FRD1 Wiring Interface
Radio Replacement Interface: The PAC C2R-FRD1 is an essential installation accessory for select 2005 and up Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, and Mazda vehicles with MSCAN databus radios. Using this interface will enable factory features such as rear seat entertainment (RSE), rear seat controls (RSC) and the THXII amplifier when the original radio is removed. Other features of the C2R-FRD1 include data bus driven retained accessory power (RAP), vehicle speed sensor (VSS) output, illumination, reverse output, parking brake output and a 5-volt regulated amp turn-on for factory installed subwoofers. The C2R-FRD1 also makes use of the factory AUX input jack (if available).
Notes: Does not retain Ford SYNC.

- If the vehicle is equipped with the Sony factory stereo system, adjust the fader to your preferred front/rear setting before the factory radio is removed. Neither the aftermarket radio nor the C2R-FRD1 interface has the ability to adjust the factory amplifier's fader. Please enter your vehicle information to confirm compatibility.
- 2008 F250/350/450 with XL trim package are not compatible; these vehicles do not have the necessary CAN bus signals.
- Does not retain RSE in 2006-2007 Ford Freestyle.
Optional Steering Wheel Control Adapter: If your vehicle has steering wheel controls (and the aftermarket radio is compatible) they can be integrated using the optional PAC SWI-CP2 steering wheel control interface (sold separately).
Note: Does not retain steering wheel controls in 2011-up Ford F-series trucks.
Optional Ground Loop Isolator: The audio signal coming from the RSE in Ford/Lincoln/Mercury vehicles is a differential output. Some auxiliary inputs on aftermarket radio have a common ground input that causes distortion in the RSE audio. The audio distortion can be fixed by PAC's ground loop isolator (SNI-1, sold separately) between the RSE output from the C2R-FRD1 and the aftermarket radio's auxiliary input.
