I was able to do the same thing with a 03 Mustang
I can confirm that it works for 2001- The Ford Escape 2007
I used it in my 1999 Ford Explorer with no problem.
As far as I am aware, it would fit in my 2002 Explorer Sport. Its main concern would be that it had 11 wires, whereas Ford's had ten (or vice versa, I don't recall). Consequently, there was either an orange wire or a white wire with an orange stripe (or possibly an orange wire with a There is only one problem My new JVC radio is always set on the dim setting so there is no way to read the clock or display at night. It wasn't until I installed the radio that I found the problem. You are in good hands.

System of the market. The first time I pulled the part, I was in a panic because there was another harness/plug in addition to the one for which this part was intended. We had to do a lot of research and try to figure out what the second plug was for, and it turned out that it wasn't necessary. Item 18C868 Date of Application).
So many wires were involved, and I was afraid of tripping over them. wire colors on the package tell you what wire goes where, so they were easy to match with the wiring harness that came with my CD/DVD player. A length of heat shrink tubing was bought and the wires were tied one at a time with solder. Once the heat shrink had been applied, I applied heat to it. Using these connectors in this order was very simple and did not leave me with a large wad like I would have if I had used crimp-on connectors instead. Plugging my unit into the radio harness, then installing the Metra harness on my pickup, I was all set to go. It's working great now that I have turned on the ignition! Making a difficult job easier was a result of this. You should definitely check it out!.
This was purchased to install in a truck for a friend who had just purchased a new Android head unit. For more than 20 years, I have installed stereos in vehicles and I will never hook one up without harness adapters. The wires on your car will not be cut, which could lead to a potential disaster at the worst and ruin the value of the car. I wired it in no time at all. As the colors of the wires on the head unit were the exact same as those on the wiring guide on the package, I didn't bother to look at it. As soon as I soldered my connections, shrunk the heat shrink, I was ready to go. The time it took to heat up my soldering iron was longer than the time it took to actually copper Installing these is a good idea for every install. It saves you so much time and these things are so inexpensive.
We tried to use the accessory in a 2005 Explorer Sport Trac (which was supposed The pins on the factory harness are too big. The installation went well except it didn't fit after all, since I began it a day early. My adapter was no longer available at my nearest retailer till the next day, which meant that I had to drive 30 miles to find one that would fit. No one knows for sure. were almost the reason my dad didn't get what he wanted for Christmas. I won't be buying this product or another like it in the future. However, I will have to pay retail markup on this part since it is such a small part (though it has a huge effect).
The wiring harness worked well for my 2001 Ford Escape that I use as a work vehicle. Thanks to it I was able to easily hook up my new radio to my factory harness and get it working. The factory radio I kept in case the new one breaks down during the warranty period and I need to send it in to be repaired. When traveling, I must have a radio with me. It is enough for you to make your connections easily because the wires are long enough. Rather than offering a wiring kit for the upgraded Factory Stereo with sub woofer, which most XLT Escapes are equipped with, I wish someone offered a connector kit. As opposed to the MACH stereo system that most companies believe I am asking about when I email or call I no longer have access to my sub woofer since installing my new stereo, but the other 6 speakers are still working perfectly.
I couldn't find anything to dislike about it. An explanation of how the head unit and pigtail are connected was included in the distribution package. The harness had to be plugged into the factory harness once you'd followed the breakdown. I had no problems. Everything went smoothly. The Metra website makes it so easy that you almost feel as if you have missed something by not checking it first. I would never install any head unit in a car without checking the Metra website first.
There were no discrepancies between the color coding of the Metra and Pioneer harnesses. While I did have to strip the wires a bit more, I chose to twist and tape the connections rather than solder or crimp them. As soon as all the wires on the Metra were connected, the male adapter on the Ford OEM harness could be plugged right in. As soon as I turned the key on, everything worked perfectly. This is an amazing.
To line up such items I have always had to adjust them upwards and downwards or wiggle the wires as they were connected. These kinds of products are usually made by just two companies, I purchase the ones Crutchfield lists on Amazon then they are shipped to me.
