Is this install only for the gen4 cars that DONT have the electronic climate controls in the center console? I was under the impression the cars with electronic center consoles had the stereo in the trunk, right?

What? Every Gen4 has climate controls in the same place, electronic or not.

Every Taurus (Gen3 and Gen4) has the electronic display up front and the actual RCU in the trunk

I crawled around in my trunk for 10 minutes and couldnt find the RCU. But Ive never seen pics of it so I have no clue where to even look really.

Thumbs up

This doesn't explain what to do about the now non-existant air bag on/off lamp?

But this is a mod I am going to do to mine soon. I already replaced all speakers, still sounds like garbage!

Could somebody show picture or drawing how to install air bag mod. Just finished installing my stereo on 2004 Sable. Used Metra 5716 installation kit. Metra kit for my year way to expensive ($129.00). Thanks.

Send a message via Yahoo to hayabusaboy123
yea but you have to realize that for Sables and Taurus', the price from the factory are $140... if you call around a local Car Audio retailer or subwoofer retailer then you can get them ordered. i got mine for $80 and it was the Metra 5716.
