How to make add your own MP3 jack in a Ford Taurus.
Thanks to this article by Alfred L. Poy: http://sio.midco.net/skyeg/Taurus%20Line-in%20html/Line-in%20instructions.html
This can be done with an Taurus between 1996 thru 2007. Check wiring diagrams for your year to make sure you are going to the correct wires.

you dont need to upgrade your radio. I used the ignition wire from the
radio harness and the ground from the cigarette lighter. no switched used.
Taurus Log 10
I got new engine and tranny mounts. I need new front subframe bushings and
hopefully will have the new parts to replace them soon.
Also, I had my car on the lift at school, so I'll show a few of the issues
I found thanks to New England winters and salty roads.
I also use vacuum hose to replace that messy taped up section of broken
windshield washer line. I got the idea to do this from here:
Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2002 Ford Taurus - etrailer.com
Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer
installation instructions and specs for complete information.
Today we are going to be installing wiring harness part number 118375 on a
2002 Ford Taurus. We are inside the trunk area here, and we are going to go
ahead and point out the mounting location for the wiring harness. The plugs
for the harness are actually located behind the tail lights, behind the
interior paneling here. To gain access to these plugs we need to remove
this back threshold piece, which is held in with two thumbscrews, one on
each side here, and then three push plugs as well. So when we go ahead and
remove that piece, that will allow us to pull back the felt here and gain
access to the plugs. So we are going to go ahead and do that now.
And with all the fasteners removed we just need to pull up on the threshold
piece, because there are some push pins in here as well. And again, with
that removed, we can easily pull back the felt now. And you can see, right
there is the plug for our T-harness. So the next step is we want to go
ahead and disconnect both plugs and plug our T-harness in line. And you can
see here, there is a little clip, right here on the side, and we just want
to pull that out and then pull the plug right out. And, with the plugs
disconnected, we can go ahead and plug our T-harness in line. The plugs
with the yellow and brown wire are going to go over on the drivers side.
And then the plug with the green wire will go over to the passengers side.
As you can see, we have got quite a bit of loose wire here. You may want to
take some zip-ties and go ahead and zip-tie the green wire along the wire
harness here. We are actually going to leave the plug inside the trunk
area. As you can see, we are just going to leave the harness left over here
to the side, and then when you go to use it, you can go ahead and pull it
out of the trunk area here and you can close the trunk onto the harness. It
is not going to hurt anything the weatherstripping will keep it from being
pinched. And then again, when it is not in use, it is nice and weather-safe
inside the trunk here. And that will conclude the installation of wiring
harness part number 118375 on a 2002 Ford Taurus.

I've been going to school for Automechanics, so I've decided to start this
Basically, I have a somewhat beat up '96 Ford Taurus. A lot of people say
Tauruses suck. Even I said it when I first had this. But after I started
taking care of it, it didn't have frequent problems like when I first
It's got over 114,000 miles on it right now. I want to see if it will last
until I get out of school, and can secure myself a good job somewhere as an
Entry Level Technician.
Along the way, I'll make more videos to show you how to do some basic
maintenence on your car as well as show how some repairs are done (though,
hopefully I won't need to do too many repairs).
In my next video, I'll show you how the side of my car is beat up, and the
strange noise the drivers window makes due to the damage on the door.
Ford Taurus Thermostat Change
While not as common source of no heat, it is still very worthy to change it
out with a new one as all that rust and sediment can cause functional
issues. Also you will now have access to that area for flushing too.
Procedure is for 3.0l 12v Vulcan engines.

This is a video describing how I installed my Escort Passport 9500ix with
the Escort Direct-wire Install package. It took about 30 min. to install.
Really easy. Necessary tools; Radar Detector, Directwire Kit,
Crimper/splicer, Add a Circuit, car, earth, universe, speed of light, and a
know-how of basic automechanics. Shot entirely with the DROID 2 by Verizon
