Car Deck Upgrade Questions.
 
Im looking to upgrade my factory stereo in my 2000 Focus wagon. I have purchased the Metra make up brackets for a double DIN.
I am looking to get a Pioneer AVH-P1400DVD Deck.
Does anyone know what I need to fit this in the Focus for the wiring? I've installed a deck in my Acura before, but its been a while.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks

youll need a ford wiring harness and antenna adapter, and you should be good to go.

also this is better HU includes Bluetooth and isnt much more than the one you listed on amazon, idk if it would be the same price in Canada or not.

Is the ford wiring harness particular to that deck or just any ford wiring harness and antenna adaptor?

you need a ford wiring harness thats specific to ford cars, it should be 2 rectangular plugs one black and one grey. Match the wires that come from your new HU, Use butt connectors or solder the wires together. And then your good to go.

everything skypilot has said is golden. you'll need a trim kit too... unless that was part of your "make up brackets". you can usually find one walmart, if not, you can on ebay. just make sure you get the right one (year and make specific)

i put a pioneer avic d3 in my 03 svtf but im not sure if our dash is the same or not. i had to use a dremmel make the unit fit.

OR BETTER YET! this is the AVH-P3400BH model for 287.89

the 1400, 2400, and 3400 are all pretty similar, just a few more options as you go up

If you need the antenna adapter, PM me.

You pay the postage and it's yours.

If You plan to ever add a subwoofer and amplifier, I recommend going ahead and running the remote wire and rca's to the rear of the car so you dont have to pull everything back apart to do that later on
