Question about 1998 Mercury Sable

Is it possible: change cd changer input to ipod input

Hello,
I have a Mercury Sable 1998. The radio only has a cassette, and an optional cd changer. I was wondering if it was even possible to hard wire an ipod hook up using the cd changer input on the radio. This way, I don't have to worry about trying to install a brand new radio, because it is also part of the temperature controls.

Also, if there is anywhere that I can go to ask about this kind of job, sudjestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Sam

I'm afraid not. The best advice I can give you is to get a Radio Tuner Adapter for your I-pod. Most prople will tell you to use a Cassette adapter, and this is fine. However it sounds like you want the best sound you can get from your I-pod. The tuner adapter is the way to get it. You will get a better sound frequency range from your factory tuner than your cassette. The factory Head unit in your Sable isn't bad, just changing the factory speakers will make a huge diffrence. Good Luck, and don't forget to vote.

I have a 2003 Mazda MPV that has the stereo that you could add a cassette deck or MD to...I do not have either, but there is a button for it. I found a guy on the internet that made a chip that plugs into the back of the radio and has a 3.5mm jack on it that will play when you push the cassette/md button on the radio. It is great....sounds just like one that came from the factory.

My radio doesn't have a cd but there is a button marked cd. Is it possible there is wiring in the trunk for the cd changer i have?


Usually they don't do that. We have a 1998 Ford Taurus that has the button for the cd but no wiring for a cd changer in the trunk. You can check for yourself if you like.

Loction of cd changer plug


the unit at front with the ac controls is just a remote control unit , the radio is in your trunk left side
you have to remove the carpet and you will find a free 13 pin plug , that is the cd changer connector
it is the same in all taurus and sable from 1996 to 2007
the radio looks like this picture

this is the cd changer
