I happened to have a radio from a Focus with the Sync system, and thought I would give it a try. Sure enough, by just changing out the back of the unit, the keys all work but the Phone & Voice ones! Now, if I can just figure out how to add the phone module and if it would be that simple, but alas, have a feeling that it is tied into the Sync system.
I just had to replace my unit and now my volume and forward reverse buttons do not work on the steering wheel. Is there another configuration that needs to be done?

i would honestly try to find the power wire that goes to the LCD screen up on the dash and run that power wire to the radio that way it will turn on with the AUX position and work like it did before you put the new radio in.....also i would buy a test light they come in handy for stuff like this

I got to make a quick response here (I have just spent a few hours working on a new navigation system for my 2011 SEL w/Sync (not the sony GPS touch screen radio)

OMG the radio inputs are Data Bus two wires you need are the
red/white 12+ hot
the Black GRD (ground to that bolt thats on the left side)
THERE IS NO ACC WIRE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This vehicle uses the can data network for accessory turn on.
You can find a Acc wire at the steering column its purple and green. Works awesome.

DONT BUY ALL THESE ADAPTER'S FOR YOUR RADIO FOR ((($30-$60-$90-$150))) WASTE OF MONEY.
The only adapter you might want is the steering wheel adapter (only if your new radio can hook up to that too))

all the rest
Left Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): White
Left Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): White/Brown
Right Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): White/Violet
Right Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): White/Ora
Left Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): White/Green
Left Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Brown/Yellow
Right Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Brown/White
Right Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Brown/Blue

Also Ive been working on finding the Dimmer wire (Theres not one of those either) Ill post when I find out that colored wire and post it.


I hope this helps. it took me awhile but I wanted to share how to save money.
James
