Radio quarrels.


Asked by Aug 29, 2012 at 08:44 PM about the 2001 Ford Taurus SES

Question type: Car Customization

My car has the regular A/C with the three dials/nobs or whatever you want to call them. My question is...,
could I buy/use the electronic A/C controls and put in a bigger radio because it seems to be larger or
would I have to use the same dials/nob set up?

In my nearly 10 years with the Taurus Car Club of America, I never saw this done. The climate and radio part of the car also is integrated with the air bag system. You just need to do a single din radio with the available adapter kits from Crutchfield, for instance.


i had a 97 sable and a bougt a face plate tha had all the controls and nobs,theres a built in hole for a cd swap out the control panel for the after market one.used it for ten years with no issues.the down side is at the time i paid around 200$ for it but it was worth it.


^That's what I am suggesting but that will still be a single din...
