oooooooooohhhhhhhhhh ok thank you. Sooooooo next question, has noone made a kit for 04-07? Or was there a time period when there wasn't any available? Basically, are they available now? Or does this need to be done with every kit made?

I am planning on putting an aftermarket stereo in, eventually, obviously I'd be able to tell just by looking at if i need to do this, no big deal. Just curious. Lots to be done before doing something I just want, and costs money.

Yes, they make '04-'07 kits with air bag lights now so this mod is unnecessary unless you got an '00-'03 kit and you want to use it in an '04-'07 model.

in the process of installing my system right now in my 04 sable, the dash kit was a breeze! Got it for 80 bucks right from best buy in the mall which seemed to be cheaper than most places, it has all factory connections for air bag light, defrost, and all the climate controls only thing I have to splice is the wires from the rcu and sub and amp, it is 1000x easier than what I though it would be after reading this

I need to revive this thread, I have found this link with a double din...but, it obviously has electronic climate controls. Now, the question is, can the plain rotary knobs be easily swapped to this electronic controller??? I wan't the double-din simply because it fills up the space a lot better and I can probably get the electronic climate control from the junk yard. But are they swappable?

Swappable, yes. Easy? No.

I used the metra 5717 kit for the 03-07 taurus.

With it you connect the ford plug that went to the stock unit and it had my red, yellow, black, and orange wires I needed for the pioneer harness
