I put a 07 Audiophile in my 2005 F150. Everything works except the illumination. I traced down the lead that supplies illumination but I need to know which pin it is supposed to go into on the 07? Also, if anyone has the pin assignments for the steering control connection also. It seems different too. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

depending on which vehicle the '07 Audiophile' radio was removed from, you may be out of luck with the illumination.  some '07 and up ford vehicles use the data bus to provide the illumination signal for the radio.  the steering wheel controls are also different as you have found out.  the '05 uses a single lead to control, return lead referenced to the vehicle ground.  the '07 two leads, return lead referenced to the radio itself. also i believe the resistance values that are output when the buttons are pressed are different values between the two years, some functions will work, some will not.  i have more info, but not immediately available at this time.

hope this helps

Thanks mark, helpful information. I like the radio's newer functions but I don't know if I can live without the illumination. The steering works but the seeks only goes backwards when you push the + and the left side of the button does nothing. Oh well, I may put the '05 back in it.

Mark, I was mistaken the radio is an 06' radio model 6L2T-18C815-BK I purchased here for pictures ebay Do you have more information that could help me to get the illumination working properly. It has the text for the Radio stations were my '05 doesn't. I'm hoping I don't have to give that up. Any help would be appreciated on getting this working. Thanks
