Question: Can I Install Microsoft Sync Into My Older Car?

Recommended Posts

Just in case anyone ever gets curious... The Short Answer: NO! :(

Longer answer: The Newer Ford Stereos rely on the MS-CAN (Medium Speed Communications Area Network) to control the entire stereo. Power, Lights, Dimmer. Whereas older stereos had a harder input. (Constant Power, then Remote Power, then wire from Dimmer Switch on typical installs)

The MS-CAN is not the same from an earlier Taurus, to a newer Ford System.

If you can get a machine to "Bench Test" these, you might be able to make it work. Kind of like having air bag simulators to remove airbags but not have trouble codes :P

Bummer....

Although the alternative is to buy an aftermarket system that has DVD, navi, HD, BT, etc.

Yeah, perhaps I may consider doing that one day :)
