On page 12 of install guide is wire chart for your truck. Wire is blue/orange and the Sync module is easily accessed by removing the tray on top of dash.

You will need to cut this wire and connect the pink/red to the side going into the car (not the side going into the sync module). Leave the side going into the sync module disconnected as shown on page 34 of guide.

Hope this helps. If not, please call tech support.

Ok, I read through all of this and read the website and I still have a few questions.

Based on my reading: with the appropriate adapters/connections and a kenwood receiver, HVAC control buttons will become inoperable when replacing the factory HU, correct?

1) is there a way to retain the physical button controls? If no, does anyone know of a replacement dash to eliminate the buttons as if they were never there?

2) does the factory back up camera and parking sensors continue to operate as with the factory HU?

3) does the system control the heated and cooled seats correctly? E.g. Can control the three levels of heat and cool.

Relevant data: vehicle 1: 2012 F150 FX4 w/ Sony Premium Sound
vehicle 2: 2010 GT500 w/ Shaker 500 and factory Nav.

So my mustang only has the HVAC controls I'm worried about. My truck has the backup camera/parking sensors and heated/cooled seats as well as HVAC I'm worried about.

Any chance of you guys hurrying? Just got a 2014 and I'm sick of the stock crappy radio. That 4.2" screen is useless and the metra kit is atrocious!
