I'm picking up my 'new' car this week, and I'm going to replace the head unit / speakers if the Shaker system isn't up to par. However, I'm having some problems trying to figure out what I need to replace the head unit.
I've seen sites say that you need a special harness (http://www.crutchfield.com/p_127C2RFRD1/PAC-Ford-Radio-Replacement-Interface.html?tp=3486&tab=review#tab) or a regular harness (http://www.crutchfield.com/p_120705521/Ford-Receiver-Wire-Harness.html?tp=2977) with a 5V regulator.
The Shaker system has 3 connectors on the back of it (24, 16, and 8 pin) and the head units and wiring harnesses all seem to only have 2 connectors.
Great question - you might want to verify the answer with someone else, though!!!
Wiring info here.
Well - kinda - it lists the 2005-2006 with the Shaker 500 and the 2007 with the Shaker 1000.
Outfit My Car shows the C2RFRD1 required for CanBus cars, but the wiring data doesn't mention data lines or anything to indicate CanBus (unless that's the third 16-pin plug that also isn't mentioned).
Metra shows the 70-5521 harness working with the regulator as you mentioned.
My gut feeling is either one would work, but the Metra harness is less expensive, so I'd probably run with that.
Hope This Helps!!!
Anyone else have suggestions?

speakers, no amp, no subs
If that is the Canbus, It shouldn't have a need to install it at all. I'm not getting a big ol' GPS Nav head unit, so it shouldn't really have a reason to connect to the CanBus in the first place.
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
