About the PAC RP4-FD11 Wiring Interface
PAC's RP4-FD11 radio replacement interface lets you replace the factory radio in select 2005-up Ford, Lincoln, Mazda, and Mercury vehicles. You'll still retain your factory steering wheel audio controls, rear seat entertainment (RSE) system, retained accessory power (RAP), and the use of your Ford factory amplifier, if present.
The RP4-FD11 interface eliminates the need for the steering wheel audio control adapter that's usually required for a Ford-built vehicle, saving you some more cash. Warranty: 1 year.
Important Note: You'll lose your fader control if you have an amplified system in your vehicle. The RP4-FD11 adapter does not work with your SYNC system; you'll need PAC's MS-FRD1 adapter to maintain that functionality. See Details for a list of compatible car stereos.

More details on the PAC RP4-FD11 Wiring Interface
Radio Replacement Interface: The RadioPro4 (RP4-FD11) is a radio replacement and SWC (steering wheel control) interface that comes pre-loaded with amplifier retention and SWC software, navigation based output signals, and firmware that retains many of the vehicle's original safety and convenience features when replacing the factory radio with an aftermarket head unit.
Functionality: The RP4-FD11 interface allows the replacement of a factory radio in select Ford/Lincoln/Mercury vehicles with the CAN-bus system. Using this interface will retain factory features such as steering wheel controls (SWC), rear seat entertainment (RSE), rear seat control (RSC) and, the factory audio amplifier whenever the original radio is removed. The RP4-FD11 also provides data bus driven outputs such as retained accessory power (RAP), vehicle speed sensor (VSS), illumination, reverse trigger, and parking brake.
Note: 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 RP4-FD11 interface has the ability to adjust the factory amplifier's fader. The RadioPro4 (RP4-FD11) does not retain your vehicle's factory SYNC system. SYNC retention requires the PAC MS-FRD1 radio replacement interface (541MSFRD1, sold separately).
