    i am thinking of buying a ford Escape 2001. will a 2 din 7 inch screen fit once i remove the factory head unit?

  3. I just purchased a used 01 escape with out the owners manual. I need to know how to set the time and radio stations as well as where the fuse box is located. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

  4. I’m trying to add an aftermarket sub to the factory amplifier. The amplifier has a 4 wire connector coming out of it and going to the factory subwoofer. I need to know what those four wires mean and what each of them does so I can splice my aftermarket sub in with them. Thanks.

    Danny, its fairly simple. You take the wiring harness that comes with your aftermarket radio and the Metra amp integration harness. Match up the wire colors on the harnesses and splice them together. After doing so you plug in the aftermarket radio harness into the back of your new radio and the Metra harness into the factory plugs coming from your 2001 Ford Escape. Here is the Metra wiring harness you need:

    If you have never installed car audio before, we advise you to take your car to an experienced mobile audio installer. Hope this helps. Good luck.
