Ford CD6000 Audio Connectors

7 posts in this topic

Hey all! Hope ur all ok

We bought an N reg ford escort, and when we got it, it had no radio. We have now got the CD6000 but the wires inside the hole where the radio goes have been cut and trimmed. I presume there was a different radio in there with the previous owner. My sisters boyfriend can wire the thing in again, but i cant seem to find the correct connectors anywhere to buy. Halford have so many so its hard to find what is what. The date on the radio is 2004, and i have the right keycode anyway. just need the connectors sorting.

Thanks for your help.

if you know what model your new radio came from try the local scrappy to see if they have any if not try fords, might be cheaper than you think

in a similar position folks, i've just got a M reg escort with a knackered 2006 in it , though i suspect the car has had someother head unit in before ... have got a 6000 from a friend for the best price ! need some advice on where to find the relevant pin outs for the 2006 and 6000 and where to get connectors to install the 6000 in place of the 2006 - the meachincs of the installation i think i've got worked out.

many thanks

thanks for the 6000 pin outs - without sounding too dumb which pin does ford consider to be 1 - is it top left looking at the back of unit ?

anyone got a list of pinouts / wire colours for 2006 ?
