Features Summary: Ford CD Radio Retro-fit Package

This listing includes a wiring adapter and a brand new Ford CD radio. It will allow you to upgrade a Ford vehicle with the non-Premium Sound plugs described below. It is critical that you read this ad and check your plugs BEFORE ordering!!

This package works for Ford owners who have the single DIN radio (@ 2" tall) but do NOT have the Premium Sound System. If you've got two long, skinny plugs on your radio that look almost identical (both @ 2" long by 3/8" wide with up to 8 prongs), this package will work for you. It allows you to mount the included CD player (pictured) into your 90s Ford vehicle with the non-Premium Sound plugs. It is a plug and play set-up, as long as you DON'T have the Premium Sound System. If you just have one long, skinny plug and the other is a smaller squarish plug, you have the Premium Sound plugs and this package will NOT work for you! Your plugs must be virtually identical in size to use this package.

If you've done research, you know they didn't offer a CD radio from the factory with the non-Premium Sound plugs. But we specialize in retro-fitting later model CD players in older vehicles and this is one of our offerings. It's a great way to get a newer, reliable Ford CD radio in your vehicle without breaking the bank, jumping through hoops or settling for an aftermarket unit that doesn't look right, is hard to operate and is more likely to get stolen. This radio is a rare OEM Ford radio. Found for only one year in just one model. But it's perfect for this retro-fit package. It is brand new and includes a 120 day warranty.

This kit does what we say it does for the vehicles, sound systems and radios listed. If you don't have a vehicle listed or didn't bother to make sure you have the plugs described, that's outside our control and we cannot be held accountable for it. **Older applications (especially those prior to 1992) may have dimmer/illumination issues, as delivered. See the notes after the Application List for more information.

The radio is a Ford radio and it does have the holes in the face for the special Ford removal tools but, unlike most Ford radios, they are covered by skinny 'caps' at each side of the face to give the radio a more finished look. It does not have a mounting pin or bracket attached to the back either. You will have to re-use yours or fashion something that utilizes the threaded hole on the back of this radio if you are concerned about support at the rear. We have sold over 100 of these kits and it hasn't been an issue yet.


This package can be used in some 1990 to 2000 vehicles that do NOT have the Premium Sound system. Please check your plugs to make sure you have the 'twin' plugs described above. The following vehicles all came with single DIN radios but, again, you must confirm you DON'T have the Premium Sound System first. Don't assume yours isn't Premium Sound just because you have an inexpensive car or only have the base model. Ford put the Premium Sound system in A LOT of vehicles. There really wasn't anything 'Premium' about it, to tell you the truth. The Premium Sound System had one long skinny plug and one smaller squarish plug. This set-up is not compatible with those plugs and no returns are accepted so pull your radio and check your plugs!

**Late 80's and some 90's vehicles often had a different illumination circuit, so the button and display back-lighting may not work in all these vehicles as delivered. The numbers will still show on the display. It is possible you can change the illumination wires in the harness and make the back-lighting work with older vehicles but instructions for this are not included. Nor can we provide tech support on making such a modification. Also of note: this does not support a power antenna. If you have this option in your vehicle, you will have to wire it up on it's own switch or rig it so it comes up when you turn the ignition on. Instructions for this are not included.

Product was as promised. Brand New radio (how they got em I do not know). Adapter was made by craftsman with great ability, and it was a very easy install-plugin and play! I did have the illumination problem elsewhere discussed, but customer said to leave it like it was, (rather than cut n splice two wires that would rectify problem). If I would have had to do that operation, it would have been nice to have those two wires-dimmer & illumination-identified, but would not have been to hard to find.
Shipping top notch. In short ---5 of 5.

Reply by Replacement Radios on 12/3: Yes. Some vehicles, especially really old ones, use a different illumination method, as indicated in the ad. Our adapter uses aftermarket standard wire colors so the illumination and dimmer wires are easy to identify. They are orange.

Replacing my radio truly could not have been any easier. The new radio snapped/clipped in as easily as the old one came out....and the new radio sounds WAAAAAAAYY better too!! Thanks again!

Radio arrived a day earlier than expected, and in good shape. Easy install with pigtail provided. One unexplained dilemma; dash lights on radio are opposite the rest of the dash lights. When headlight switch is turned to the right, all dash lights go dim, but radio light gets brighter. Turning the switch to the left brightens all dash lights except the radio, witch gets dimmer. (???) Old radio had four visible holes for tool to remove unit, new radio has none, so removal will be a chore should I decide to explore the light issue. I am hoping someone reads this and may be able to help. Good service from Replacement Radios.

Reply by Replacement Radios on 8/15: The dimmer issue is mentioned as a possibility for some vehicles. You might have to change the dimmer wire in the adapter harness if it bothers you. As for the removal tools, the holes are there. They are just covered with caps that provide a more finished look, as indicated in the listing.
