How to install or hook up the Ford Factory remote CD player, no wiring plug in the back

Recommended Posts

I have 2003 ford Taurus wagon that I want to install the remote CD player in.. To my surprise when I looked in the access panel

by where the cd player goes there was no factory installed wiring there for the player...  I have a 10 cd Player and the Platter tray

Is there a quick connect plug somewhere that I need to have a wiring harness for?  or does a wiring harness have to go all the way back to the radio?

The CD Changers in Fords required an extra harness. The harness plugged into the RCU. It'll look something like the attached photo (This is for a factory 6 disc CD Changer). 10 Disc would be more aftermarket. You may need to see if they provided the harness to go from the RCU (Rear Control Unit) to your CD Changer.

I removed the Factory CD player from a junked 2002 Ford Taurus wagon, installing in a 2003 Ford Taurus wagon so I need the plug in wire harness from the RCU located behind the spare tire to the remote CD player.... ok got it!   Thank You!
