Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

I did not understand the question.
Ford Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

what radio is in the car now and what radio did it come with new

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
The current radio is Branded AM/FM/MP3/6 CD In Dash, With NAAO Radio Frequency; For CDX6 With MP3.
I want to add Audio control on the steering wheel without changing the radio
Ford Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

do you have the model number for that and is it bluetooth?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
here is the ford part number 18806A
it does not have bluetooth.
Ford Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

so you might be able to do that, you would need to change the steering wheel but first we need to check the connectors behind the air bag and the back of the radio to make sure its integrated in the harness, if the connectors arnt there you will need different radio for the function, but even if the harness is there the cost of the wheel and controls would be as much as a new radio with the functions in it

I have bought a used wheel with audio control.
Ford Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

ok well next you want to see if the harness will accept the new controls or not and if the radio has the wires going to it, on the back of the radio is 18 grey yellow and 19 blue white those are the 2 that go to the steering wheel

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
do you have a digram for wire or connector pin
Ford Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

just a worded list and pin numbers with wire colors

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
can you share it
Ford Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

on the pin location there should be small numbers on the connector on each end and you can find the pin location accordingly

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I will check and get back
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
the pins and wires are exist on the radio harness
Ford Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

well that should do it all you have to do now is pull the air bag and check the harness there and you should be ok

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Ford Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

should be purple on 10 and red/white on 11

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Where should I check those pins exactly
Ford Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

there should be a harness behind the air bag somewhere

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Ford Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

see if you can connect them to the new wheel and if the controls work

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I will do that and update you, but do we need to do programming for the radio?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I have connected it but it did not work

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
