  1. hi will cutting the speaker cables to icc damage it if you heatshrink the wires going to that after. or would you be better running new cables for speakers, theres a youtube channel showing the cables being cut and the icc ends being insulated. also want to ask is pioneer smartsync same as apple carplay seems both will read out messages and navigate with phones app. also you know how you usually seperate the rca and power cable for amp, could they go together is its not possible, what would you do if together is only option. thanks for any help

    Ba/bf stereo upgrades

    Would it be worth trying to mount a double din in a ba below icc. want dab+/am/fm/cd and to have carplay and dual usb or wireless carplay and usb to be able to connect phone and usb drive at same time. found a few normal stereos that have the smart sync feature in pioneer and they would be close enough but none have dab+ that’s only thing but otherwise could have got a rgb box to convert the icc screen into reverse camera. need to know soon as possible

    Ba/bf stereo upgrades

    There’s a sony one that has a single din rear but has a double din touch screen to fit in smaller areas universalfuze even do a kit. would this be only stereo that fits ba/bf that has dab+/am/fm, noticed that it only has one usb and there’s only wired apple car play so you can’t connect phone and media storage at same time. Is there another stereo like like this one that sony one that has dual usb or wireless car play to connect both phone and media at same time and dab and cd and am and fm or is this as close as we will get unless you buy a alpine one that replaces factory screen that allows you to connect the climate panel to it like in some of the ve holden which means you have to get another icc to mod.

    Ba/bf stereo upgrades

    Hi In the area below icc what other brand and model touch screen stereos fit there besides the sony https://www.sony.com.au/electronics/...rs/xav-ax205db one in this kit https://www.universalfuze.com.au/son...-and-dab-radio Has anyone got any idea, looking to upgrade stereo and auto electrical people think it’s best to have a seperate stereo system and keep it simple. Thanks

  9. Hi Have a ba ghia now and am looking to get a new stereo touch screen. Have found a ba/bf kit from universalfuse https://www.universalfuze.com.au/sony-car-play-android-auto-with-dvd-and-dab-radio and while it’s supposed to be good you’ll loose the storage area that’s left under the kit that’s used to mount a single din unit. Is it going to be a problem loosing that bit of storage and where do you put that stuff that you’d normally store in that area. Plus with the sony kit you got to buy a navigation kit if you want to use gps without plugging in phone. Apparently that sony kit is a double din size screen with a 1.5 din fit. Also there’s a kayhan audio icc system https://kayhanaudio.com.au/product/ford-ba-bf-territory/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIrsf3_Kq04wIV2RwrCh0vdg16EAAYASAAEgKb6fD_BwE This kayhan kit is a whole new icc for ba/bf which has same features as the sony kit plus more. And you can keep the single din cd player mounted below plugged into aux to play occasional cds. With the mounting kit in the link to sony system for ba/bf what is done with it to get the big screen through it. Is there a chance that you can get normal double din size to fit or does the fit have to be 1.5 din. Do pioneer or kenwood or jvc do those big screen with a 1.5 din fit like the sony link. Would it be better to have the stereo separate to icc or get a whole new icc. What us kayhan like and what’s chance of factory screen going out if it still works. What would you do out of these options 1. Replace icc with whole new icc and leave the single din cd below plugged into aux to play occasional cd. 2. Buy the sony kit that’s in link (would you cut icc speakers and connect them to new unit or just use aux. 3. Try and get a normal double din in. 4. Look for another one like sony link that has built in gps that’s a good brand. Thanks

    Au ecu conversion

    Already have a el ghia v8 engine bay harness and nearly a whole car harness and only need to swap plugs and add a couple wires for ed dash to work and the tcu connectors or preferably the behind dashboard harness out a el v8 with cruise control. if you were to buy a stand-alone eec4 v8 harness how would you connect it to the wiring that’s already there in the ed, will the eec have the transmission computer or would you still need a separate one any chance you can attach picture of exact exact location for climate sensor and seperate dash sender in ed v8, have noticed the ecu coolant sensor is behind thermostat screwed into heater pipe

    Au ecu conversion

    Do have el v8 engine bay harness and both tcu and ecu just need wire with the connectors to go on tcu wheres the climate sensor in eb/ed v8 fairmont can make the el ghia v8 harnesses work on ed dash just need to swap plugs and run wires out to seperate climate and temp sensors, someone used eb wiring in a el dash years back when doing el dash in eb

    Au ecu conversion

    could you fit the au lines with what it came with and change ends to ed fittings to go on condensor and dryer and will the ed climate panel work as someone on fordmods think members name is timmya or something fitted all au wiring and au ac system and made it work on ed aircon panel and changed condeosor and dryer end to go on ed front

    ed ford wiring harness

    hi everyone getting a ed which is only a base model but plan to bring it to fairmont level and put a v8 in and instead of putting eb/ed abs with seperate ecu in plan to put in ef/el abs with all in one pump/ecu. also instead of using eb/ed vacuum cruise control plan to use ef/el electronic cruise control and el thermo fans instead of the belt fan and want to keep the original ed dash setup. out of the below options which would you go with. 1. use all el wiring harness and change tail light connectors and also interior connectors where needed to allow the original ed dash to work. 2. use el floor harness and change tail light connectors and the right kick panel connectors for it to go into ed drivers side engine bay harness and use the ed drivers side engine bay harness and solder a ef/el fusible link block, ed dash harness, el v8 ecu harness and splice it into the ed wiring with diagrams. 3. use all ed 6 cyl fairmont wiring and pull out the wires for cruise control as ef/el cruise control will be getting used and solder ef/el fusible link block into the ed drivers side engine bay harness and use a el v8 ecu and tcu harness and strip down a el drivers side harness to get the thermo fan block and wires out and make a independant thermo fan harness that has power wires to run around and connect to battery and has plug with the trigger wires to go to the ecu and run the trigger wires from the ecu out through the passenger ecu harness with plugs so the fan harness will plug in. also will then solder the ef/el pillar wiring connectors onto the ed wiring do the ef/el door harnesses plug in. (this option will mostly be ed wiring with some changes to the body harness with removing cruise control wires and passenger ecu wiring with the independant thermo fan harness plugging into the ecu harness and running power wires to battery) is the ed fairmont bcm really hard to find in south australia or would you solder the el fairmont bcm plugs into the eb/ed smartlock and bcm wires if using mostly ed wires except el v8 ecu harness. any help would be great thanks
