2005 Mustang GT Shaker1000 replacement Questions

I have an 05 mustang gt and want to change out the head unit. The cd player on it quit after running a cd cleaner through it.. Keep getting "BAD DISC" message. So Im going to replace the head unit but I was told I would have to get an adapter that was @150.00 to 200.00. I want to be able to use the stack speakers and amps. What will I need to swap this out and was the information I was given correct. Thanks

Just checked on crutchfield, apperently you do. This is it:

PAC Ford Radio Replacement Interface Allows aftermarket radio installation in select 2005-up Ford-built vehicles (model C2R-FRD1) at Crutchfield.com

Thats only if you want all of your fancy features to work with the aftermarket HU. Its really there so that way you can have connections to all speakers, including the subs.

You should check with the local stereo shops and see if they have a wiring harness that just connects it all instead of utilizes your steering wheel control and other features.

Cheers!

I don't have steering wheel controls. I already have the HU and the wiring harness and dash adapter(to fill in the huge hole left in dash). But I was told it wouldn't even work without the PAC. Then I was told that it would work but the alarm wouldn't work nor would the door chimes or the chime if the lights were left on or the keys left in the car so. Crutchfield has a deal if you buy a HU that is over 130.00 you get the PAC for half price and the install kit and shipping for free wish I had known that first. I just want to get my wife's CD player up and working again. Gotta get out of the dog house soon..

Just Lookin for an update on this. Im about to swap out the OEM stereo HU for a Kenwood DDX419 in my 05 GT Convert W/ 1000 Shaker. Gunna buy the same super PAC wiring harness. Hopeing for pics and/or insight on how easy it was to sort the wiring harness out. Ive searched and searched, and it keeps coming up with this thread. Cheers.

I just installed the DDX319 with the PAC Kit from Crutchfield. The colors on the Pac kit match right up with the DDX319 harness. Download the install guide and the tech bulletins from PAC:

Pac-Audio.com Product Details | iPod Integration for your car and More by Pac-Audio - Connecting you to the future

as you need to add a 1 amp diode (Radio Shack part no. 1N4005) inline on the white/green Pac lead or you experience issues at high volumes.

Items Used For Installation:
  • Kenwood DDX319 DVD Receiver
  • PAC C2R-FRD1 Wiring Harness
  • Metra 99-5807C Installation Kit
  • Radio Shack 1N4005 1 Amp Diode per PAC tech bulletin
  • Free Antenna Adapter from Crutchfield (not required for DDX319)
  • Solder Gun w/ Solder
  • Heat Shrink Tubing


I chose this setup from Crutchfield as they cut the PAC unit price in half with any stereo purchase. They also threw in the Antenna Adapter (not needed) and the Metra install kit at no charge. With a coupon, this setup was cheaper than buying an after-market wiring harness & mounting kit.

The PAC installation instructions were excellent with full wiring details. The only issue I had with the PAC kit was not including the 1N4005 1 Amp Diode per PAC tech bulletin. For the price they charge, this Diode should be included in the kit. Solder diode in-line per the PAC tech bulletin drawing.

I was a bit intimidated when I unboxed the PAC kit, but once I started soldering connections, the wire colors from the kit matched right up to the Kenwood stereo harness. The removable harnesses are very cool, I did all the soldering right at my desk, instead of inside the car. The DDX319 does have two direct connection wires outside of the removable harness, the reverse and parking brake wires. I used wire nuts on these non-audio connections rather than try to solder inside the Mustang. A reverse cam will be a future mod once I feel like routing cam wiring to the trunk. The DDX319 is setup to accept the reverse cam AV signal and will automatically switch to that input when the car is put in reverse.

The only issue I had was releasing the heating control slide release connection from the Ford face plate, what a pain in the ...!

Finished Installation:

Can someone please help me. I put the 1N4005 1 Amp Diode on the white green wire of the pac harness. It solved the pop/cut at medium to high volume. However I still get cuts/pops at extremely high volumes. Would adding more diodes to the white green wire solve this?
