The best reply for this is to see a radio teck that fits wireless into cars as they have the gear , looms and connections and the know how to do the job without upsetting the ECM program. IT will be money well spent especially if you use an accredited radio technician.

2005 ford explorer 6 cyl. has a heater/ac damper problem. how do i remove and install a new damper assembly?


It is called a blend door you need to replace both the actuator and the door. Follow the instructions at this site to use a product called the Heater Treater, it is avail on Ebay. If you wish to go full OEM you must remove the dash assembly completely and that takes about 12 hours. This is a factory defect and Ford may provide assistance in the repair if you call the factory customer service number and set up a meeting with the field rep fro Ford. I have seen this happen but it is a case by case deal.

Disc stuck in factory installed DVD player


needs a new disc changer. Something is wrong internally. You will be able to get them back if you go to the dealership and get an exchange unit. They will send the discs back when they remanufacture the unit.

It sounds like you bought the wrong year mirrors. Yes you could cut the connector off you old mirror but you would have to know the wiring for the mirror not the truck.

DVDs stuck in factory-installed 6-disc DVD movie player


Disclaimer: I am not a professional. This is an account of what I did to replace my DVD changer. If I had been offered the $450 installed option, I would have taken it.

According to the boys at Car Toys and the dealer, once these DVD changers go, they have to be replaced. The dealer quoted me $705, but I found one on E-bay from a highly rated seller for $400. I was able to pull out the DVD changer by popping off the trim betwee the DVD player and the cup holder, and then removing two screws. Note that it may help to remove the cup holder.

Once those two screws at the bottom are removed, it just takes a firm tug on console shell below the DVD player for the whole face of the console to come off. Disconnecting the airbag indicator connector will allow the console face to be pulled far enough away to get at the DVD changer. All connectors have a tab you need to press while pulling.

Two more screws need to be removed to get the DVD changer out. With those screws removed, another firm tug and wiggle will release the DVD changer. You'll probably hear a metal popping sound, which is just the rear grounding tab (I think that's what it is) pulling free from the cage.

Once you can reach the two wiring harnesses behind the DVD changer, pull on the wire bundle to give yourself some slack to work with, while not stressing the cable assemblies too much. Disconect the two connectors at the back of the DVD changer. At that point the DVD changer can be removed, and you can search on E-bay for the part number. My unit had a complete wiring diagram for the two connectors on the sticker, but I couldn't find anyone with the right connectors to install an aftermarket system.

I haven't received the new part yet, so I'm a little nervous about the correct order of connector installation. I'll probably pull the battery terminals while installing the new unit, but here is where you are on your own. Good luck.

Dvd player


If you have a factory DVD player, then while the DVD player is on, press your radio preset numbers' 2 and 4 simultaneously. Then to listen to the CD or radio just press whichever button you want to listen to. You should hear sound out of your front speakers only, and won't interrupt the headphones. Good luck.

How do you work the sound on the DVD player?


I have a 2005 with DVD - but do not have the wireless headphones. I use the AUX button on the front radio to switch between FM/AM/and the DVD Player. I do have headphones jacks in the roof console by the DVD player, but have never used them.
