You need a Motorolla Star Tac mobile phone out of the ark (eBay used to have them at £146!) and a Jaguar celluar phone installation kit. Not worth it at all ....

there are two cradles available for the 6300, one has two connectors should work when you put the phone in the cradle and switch on the key, the other has one connector and is bluetooth, this requires pairing, you will need to search for bluetooth devices and pair using code 1234. The use of steering wheel controls is not possible with bury car kit. hope this helps. dan

99 olds Intrigue factory CD player problem


I am not sure about repairing the unit. Do you have a CD cleaner?
You might check with a reputable auto electronics shop, one that specializes in car audio. They may have an adapter that will allow an aftermarket radio to be controlled from the steering wheel. Rosen makes a nice am/fm/cd/dvd navigation unit that also has XM and iPod inputs. The hard part will be to find supporting interfaces and wiring harnesses to fit a 99.

Steering wheel controls for stereo do not work


Hi,you will probably find that the contact ring( ribbon) behind the steering wheel is at fault as this is quite a common fault,it consists of a printed circuit ribbon that winds and unwinds inside a plastic housing as the steering wheel is turned left and right,and through time the ribbon can become damaged,However as the steering wheel has to be removed to gain access to the ribbon it is highly recommended that all safety precautions are followed due to the airbag module also having to be disconnected and removed to gain access, I did replace my own one a couple of years ago as my SRS light had been activated by the same fault and is relatively easy to replace if you have some mechanical knowledge,Bill.

Display wont siow on radio


if the display is blank you will need to send it to a repair facility. your ford dealer should be able to give you an estimate over the phone, or tell you locally where to take it.
the steering wheel controls will not work with an aftermarket radio. besides if you have a 6-disc player, it is probably a fairly nice audio unit.
i would at least see how much to fix it.
