About the Scosche FD1380B Dash and Wiring Kit
Scosche's FD1380B kit allows you to install an aftermarket DIN-sized receiver in 2000-up Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable vehicles with the integrated factory radio/control panel. The kit replaces the panel, while maintaining the original climate controls and hardware.
The FD1380B includes the control panel, a radio/defroster harness, 18-foot Ford antenna extension cable, and 18-foot speaker extension cable. You must install the factory climate controls in the new panel. The Ford radio is merely a control unit — the amplifier and tuner are in the rear of the vehicle. You must run the included antenna and speaker cables from the new aftermarket receiver to the Ford tuner/amp unit.
What's in the box:
- Radio housing with attached 12" harness
- Plastic pocket
- 2 ISO mount brackets
- 18' Antenna extension cable (standard male Motorola plug on one end and male Ford plug on the other end)
- 17' Speaker extension harness (14-pin male connector on one end and bare wires on the other end)
- Installation Instructions

Radio Replacement Kit & Harness: This kit replaces the factory radio/integrated control panel in select 2000 and newer Ford Taurus vehicles. The kit maintains the original rotary climate controls and hardware. Since the kit is identical to the factory panel, no cutting or filing is required. The factory radio dash panel is a control unit only, the amplifier and tuner sections are located in the rear of the vehicle. When installing an aftermarket radio, you will need to run the provided antenna extension cable and speaker extension harness from the rear tuner/amp unit to the aftermarket radio.
Note: For your specific vehicle, please verify compatibility with Auto Install Guide or Vehicle Selector.
