It ain't gonna work w/o some serious modifications. First of all, it looks like it screws into the dash. Second it's a double-din unit (the stock Taurus radio is a single din). And third, it's a GM radio. You're gonna have to get a harness from a GM and splice that into the Ford's harness. Then you have cut out that bar between the radio and coin/cup holders in order to get that to fit. Then you have to screw that into your dash down there. You'd have to make a custom panel to fit over it so it doesn't look ghetto. If you don't care if it looks ghetto, then just leave it be. But I would suggest selling that Delco radio and get an aftermarket.

A scooter? I don't think it'd be practical to put an audio system on a scooter. But whatever. You'd need 12v to power the radio and speakers and then you'll need to find a wiring diagram. There might be one at http://www.autozone.com

damn, I plugged it, and I was getting a error 22 & error 23 (I dont dont what the hell is that !) maybe it because my batterie was not full or maybe is just because the radio need to receive a couple of hit from the road.

lol

if someone knows the error code list, It will be appreciate.


tanks and good night

I don't know about the error, but I know some late '90s GM radios are equipt with anti-theft so the radio won't work if it's taken out of the car.
