*2000 models have a different plug on two of the control units. However, the control units from your existing factory radio can be swapped onto this one, which makes it fully functional in the 2000 model. It's a great way to get in-dash CD in a year that didn't originally come with it. There is just one screw securing one control unit and a few plastic tabs securing the other, so it is easy to do this swap, as many of our customers have found out.
^Many 2004 and newer models had a passenger 'airbag off' indicator on the radio that is not present on this unit. The radio itself will function fine in 2004 and newer models but you will lose that indicator and it might cause the airbag light to stay on in your dash. This is only an issue if you currently have this indicator built in to your radio in a 2004 or newer. If you do have this indicator, we strongly recommend the 2004 and newer model that we also sell in the Taurus and Sable listings.
As noted above, there are no climate control knobs or modules on this radio but the holes are there. You simply swap yours onto this with a small screwdriver and socket.
