Usually i find it too hard to tap into the factory loom and run all my own wires to the speakers plus they are better quality cables. Then that leaves, Acc, Ground, Battery and Illumination. Accessories can be had from the cigarette lighter, and ground is obvious. Illumination is the tricky one, usually i take this from the clock, you find it using a multimeter. For the constant power i ran a cable directly to the battery through the firewall.

I really really doubt you'll find a magical plug that hooks it all up in one hit though, and if you do find one.... Let me know. The closest you can get is a plug that will plug into the factory loom and have the same coloured wires on the other end as the deck. Then you have to match the colours with the loom on the deck and solder them. I had one on my AU, but dunno if you can get them for BA's.

I believe that the original head unit must stay with BAs.You need to place the new head unit in the tissue tray underneath. As for wiring,I am without knowledge.



The older I get the better I was!

As Fairmont_03_5.4 said you need to install an aftermarket head unit into the tissue tray.

The old tissue tray needs to be taken out and a Fascia installed. I have this one ... fascia-kit

I followed a pretty straightforward guide from "Shoony" and that is avaliable here ford-audio-visual-f5/another-ba-aftermarket-head-unit-thread-complete-t72414-40.html
