I've replaced my perfectly functioning Metra kit with the not so perfect Scosche kit in my Taurus... It was made for 00-03 Taurus, and I happen to have an 04.
My A/C controls do not light up, rear defrost doesn't appear to work, my top cigarette lighter doesn't work, and my in dash air bag light comes on. There's an illumination wire that it said to splice into the cigarette lighter illumination wire... However I can find no such thing on my model. I believe this wire would fix the lights and rear defrost at least. Where else could I connect this wire? Also I read something about installing a 10k resistor on one of the cable, I'll be doing that soon to fix the air bag light.
