I'm not familiar with that exact model/year but for years ford has had the same setup. To remove the radio requires a special tool that you can purchase from an auto parts store for about $5. There should be a small hole in each corner of the radio, the tool slides into the holes and you'll hear a click letting you know it's in there correctly. Then you pull the tools outward and towards you at the same time and the radio will slide right out. Then it's a matter of unplugging a few connections on the back. To reinstall the radio slides right back in.

FYI- The tools look like two pieces of coat hanger bent into a U.

I bought a preowned Ford Explorer Sport Trac 2008 and do not have the factory code for keyless entry. Where is it?


You may have to go to a Ford dealership and provide them with the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) so they can pull up the factory specs on that particular Explorer. They'd probably be your best bet.

sounds the like the vehicle had an oem amplifier that was removed, most after market stereo installers will trace the speakers wires individually by continuity to by pass the factory amplifier and wire the new head unit to the vehicles speakers, if the harness has been spliced or factory amp removed, you will need to check if the amplifier still exists (usually under passenger rear seat sometimes located in trunk area) and see if the harness has been bypassed. if so you will have to reconnect the harness by color code in order to use the factory head unit
