Red face CD player help!

i have a 1994 mustang with a tape player in it, and i was just wondering if it was possible to put a cd player that came out of a 2002 ford f150 sport; its a 6 disc changer. its also the cd player that is in the 2003 F350. i know that there is enough dash room for one, but i need to know if it's possible and what i need to do it with.

thanks (:

Re: CD player help!

if it has the same connectors as your care it might work. but I think you will do a lot better with aftermarket head unit.

Re: CD player help!

I believe the '01+ Ford radios are double DIN units. '94 should be a single DIN. I would also think the electrical connectors changed along. I can say this for the Mustang but not the F150 or the other trucks, although my friend's 03 Explorer (or similar) had a different radio (DDIN, single disc, cassette, non-Mach system). Up until '01 the connectors were long and skinny, as well as coded as black and gray. The upgraded sound systems used a square black connector (8-pin). Around '01 the Mustang changed the harness to a square red and black plug. I believe one or two other changes occurred depending on the specific audio system and it might have even varied for the '03/04 year.

However it could still be very possible if this is the case. You will have to get the correct female harness to plug into the car, and then the correct male harness that plugs into the back of the Ford radio. Both of which they make and are readily available. You will just have to wire these two harnesses together.

The second thing you would have to do is get the radio trim bezel out of an '01-04 Mustang and replace it with the current one in your car.

Also the '01-04 DDIN radio is held in by two screws on the bottom and a plastic clip on the back of the radio which slides onto a metal track. The screws are covered up by the plastic trim. You might have to move (or remove) the current metal bracing on the inside.

Hope that helps.

If you do chose to use an aftermarket cd player (the stock one just gets in the way of the shifter), check out the 99-00 install on our Articles section as it should be the same install as yours.
