I recently bought a '99 SE but not sure if it came with a cd changer or not. I have the radio button but after searching trunk & this forum I can't find one nor do I have the trunk trim either. However I found some mounting brackets under the speaker deck & blue cord with round plug hanging there. I traced blue cord & it plugs into RCU unit. Any ideas what was mounted there?

It isn't a factory install. Can you grab some pictures?

Some of the Gen 3's had a 10 disc changer mounted there(under shelf)...but I think they had a wired remote? I think they were dealer installed .

CDC-FDR is an adapter by Audiovox to allow their CD-changer to interface with the Ford RCU. After-market CD changer installation.

personally i would opt for a ford oem changer. if interested in one contact member "durasel" he sells audio
Agree. Rather than trying to figure out what can work with a 3rd party adapter, just go with what works and is simple. You will also need the cable that connects between the changer and the RCU.

You may just choose to go with an mp3 player connection instead. There are threads all over the place showing how to replace the changer (which you don't have anyway) with an mp3 player or Bluetooth receiver for streaming audio. These adapter will come with the required cables to the RCU.
