2013 Ford Escape base stereo w/ Sync

Post by bradlee313 » Sun Nov 22, 2015 2:01 pm

I have a 2013 Ford Escape with Sync, non-nav, non-Sony, 4 speaker stereo, with top 4" display.

I'd like to install a new stereo (NEX4100), and backup camera. I've already purchased the head unit, camera, and dash kit.

I'm looking for a wiring harness so I don't have to cut the factory wires. The current factory stereo has a 24pin harness, a 26pin harness, and a small (euro style?) Antenna jack.

I'd like to keep steering wheel controls if possible. I'd also like to get reverse/parking break signals. Anything else would be a plus. Sync retention maybe?

We don't currently have firmware for the Escape, but we are working on it. However, I don't have an ETA at this time.

Do you have firmware that would currently cover a base level of functionality for the Escape? The Focus and Fiesta are both quite similar.

The focus and fiesta are also not currently covered. We're working on firmware for those as well.

By "working on", do you actually mean work is actively being done at the present time to add functionality for those vehicles, or that you plan to possibly work on those vehicles at some point in the future?

It is not a project that is being actively worked on at this time. We have research on the vehicle mostly done, but the firmware isn't ready to be released yet.

I am about to buy a radio for my 2013 Escape pretty much the same model as bradlee. Has there been any update on the firmware. Or is there another option or retaining steering wheel controls?

Thank you!

You would use the RR module and the RR-FO2 wiring harness. Now fully supported
