    08 sport trac adrenalin stereo wiring

    Which wiring diagram do you need? Is it just the head unit wiring or other diagrams? Which stereo do you currently have NAV, non-NAV?

    Is there any way to get the sync system in my 07 EB

    I don't know why the mic isn't working, but I would try reseating the three pin connector and if that doesn't work, reseat the APIM harness connector where the Microphone is connected to. BTW If you haven't grabbed a NAV unit yet there are now a bunch for sale on EBay for both 2008...

    Is there any way to get the sync system in my 07 EB

    FYI - Unlock First Gen Driving Restrictions I'm not sure if you know this, but just in case you may have a co-pilot that likes to navigate or enter an address from the passenger seat while you are driving; below are instructions for getting around these driving restrictions: Use at your own...

    Is there any way to get the sync system in my 07 EB

    SYNC Requires newer "Chrome" NAV with Phone button I am afraid the older (non-chrome) NAV unit without the Phone button will not work with SYNC. I don't know the details of the hardware differences, but at a minimum the firmware in the old Nav unit will not work. There are numerous...

    Is there any way to get the sync system in my 07 EB

    9R3Z-14D212 SYNC Kit You are in luck! A seller named dealerconsignments is currently selling the entire 9R3Z-14D212 kit new for around $60 including shipping on EBAY. I believe this will be all you need to get SYNC working in your mustang in addition to getting the NAV unit programmed for...

    Is there any way to get the sync system in my 07 EB

    Sync Phone System works per CAN bus ID on NAV system Rusty, your claim is in error. The Sync module identifies itself to the NAV system and the NAV unit identifies itself to the Sync module with low speed CAN bus labels. The programming of the SYNC module does not appear to be specific to...

    Is there any way to get the sync system in my 07 EB

    9R3Z-14D212-A Sync Retrofit Kit Yes, it will work on a 2007 CAN bus based audio system. It will require a Sync capable head unit however, but the plugs for the head unit are compatible and it can be upgraded. Even thought this kit says it is for a Mustang it will work in an Explorer. I used...

    Is there any way to get the sync system in my 07 EB

    Sync retrofit for late model 2008+ Explorer For late model 2008 and above Explorers a retrofit will be easier as it requires only a Patch harness to be placed in the stock location with the Sync module which is in the center console. All the needed wires should already be present in newer...

    Is there any way to get the sync system in my 07 EB

    Sync is possible on a 2007 There are various ways you can get Sync in your vehicle. The easiest and cheapest is probably to use the T-harness kit from FORD (9R3Z-14D212-A) which is selling for around $200 on EBay. It includes the Sync module, harness, microphone and control switch (external)...

    IFS/IRS 4x4 Gear Swap and Locker

    I have a 2008 4x4 Explorer ST. I am planning to use 4.10 gears and an IRS ECTED LS locker for the rear 8.8. Has anyone done anything similar and if so what parts did you use? I have everything I need for the rear, but can't find an aftermarket gear set for the 2008 front Dana IFS...

    Adding factory Nav

    I think I found my problem, the RH steering wheel switch connector has been rewired from early 2008 to late 2008/2009 (Sync). I assume that is when the Phone button was added to the switch instead of just the Voice. What happened is that the Voice VMN02 (White-Brown) wire got moved from pin 8 to...

    Adding factory Nav

    Ok, yeah I know who he is. One other thing I was wondering if your RH SWC has the Ok and Phone button along the bottom row or just the Phone? I was told that the Navigation systems will only have the Phone.

    Adding factory Nav

    Could you bring up your Navigation Diagnostics and let me know what you have set for the SWC settings? I am planning a couple upgrades to enable voice and potentially a SYNC retrofit. First I want to get the voice to work. I have installed a 6 button RH SWC and need to know how to get the...

    Adding factory Nav

    I have retrofit a 2008 Nav unit to replace my 6CD audiophile unit and replaced the R/H steering wheel button assembly with the correct part (single phone button along bottom). However, my voice and phone buttons do not work yet. Did you get your Voice and Phone buttons working? If so, what...

    Adding factory Nav

    There are a couple different types of R/H steering wheel button assemblies for the Sport Trac. The one with only voice (non-sync) is 8L2Z-9C888-BA, the one with only the phone button along the bottom is 8L2Z-9C888-AB. Does anyone know what part the one with both phone and the OK button is? Is...

    Adding factory Nav

    R/H steering wheel control pad I have added a 2008 factory NAV to my late 2008 Explorer. Does anyone know what it takes to wire up the R/H steering wheel assembly? Is it a complete assembly or do you just need to change/add a couple buttons if the Phone and Voice buttons are missing? What...

    Computer/Sensor Problems

    Service Bulletin # I would be curious what the service bulletin # is from Ford and what it fixes. It may fix various issues with the Transmission. I know that the 6 speed does not like the truck stopping and going immediately. It wants you to come to a complete stop before it down shifts...

    Front air locker response from ARB

    I am waiting for RCD to come out with their lift. I have been waiting for the next best lift ever since waiting for the Trailmaster. I am going to need to regear when I get the lift since I have a 3.73 LS and I would like to get a front and rear ARB system put in at that time. However with...

    RCD RANGER 4" coilover kit for "4x4" !!

    Kenneth Yoder at RCD replied: "We do not have a system for the Explorer. We are not currently working on a system. It will be several years before we have a system." So the only thing you can hope for is that it will be possible to use the front part from the Ranger kit.

    2001 Lift

    Superlift 4" Suspension Lift Kit This kit will be coming out end of this month or early next I have been told. It should be better than the Trailmaster 4", but might also cost a bit more. If you are looking for the cheapest lift then the body lift would be an option along with the WAR153...
