That is what needs to be programmed in. I have a guy coming on Monday to take care of that for me.

Oh.. Okay, then that makes me feel better. I wish there was someone around me that I knew would be able to dot it. Not sure I trust the dealer. Maybe you can get some info from your guy on what to look for or who in my area that can do it.

I called the dealer and they told me they do not do that work anymore. They provided me with the number for this guy. I would call the dealer and see what they say, can't hurt. I would also give a call to some local Stereo shops too. I used to work for an audio dealer back in CT and learned that most dealers send cars to an audio shop for most aftermarket work. IE, remote starters, alarm systems, have a radio repaired or replaced, replace speakers, etc...

The guy who will be taking care of my system is a local guy who works out of his house. I will ask him if most dealerships outsource that kind of work for ya.

If you are familiar and comfortable working on cars and wires etc... do it up. I was able to do it in about 2 hours. The hardest part was splicing the wires. If you do purchase the kit you will need someone who can program the control pad and activate a few other items.

**EDIT**
I must have been asleep when I read your comment. This will not work with factory NAV units.

Good to know that most of the features work without the programming being done. Unfortunately the two nearest dealers I called didn't have a clue about this accessory. My kit is here, and I am going to probably install it this weekend.

On another note have you guys seen the people putting the 2010+ steering wheel in the 05-09's? I actually saw one thread where the volume controls would work just by adding the wiring, and it got me thinking about replacing that add-on control module and using the sync buttons from the steering wheel.

That would be awesome. I am not a big fan of having that remote. I wish there was a way I could mount it so it looked like it was added from the factory.

Have you looked an further into getting the steering wheal?

Can you give us a bit more info than that? How did you do it? Did you register with your VIN? Software updates? Dealer visit required?

I just got mine in the mail yesterday, mines an 07 but I'm running a head unit out of an 09 in it. This oughtta be fun! LOL!

Thanks

I did the install myself. That took about 2.5 hours and the real pain in the butt was splicing the 3 wires. Once that was complete the Sync system worked with my phone only to play music, make phone calls, and charge via USB. The remote control will not work until the unit is programmed.
I did call my local Ford dealership however, they stated they do not install or program the aftermarket Sync systems. The service guy gave me the number of a local radio guy they use for all other aftermarket ad-ons and repairs. He charged me $40, came to my house, registered my Sync with Ford, and did all the updates. There is no other way to get around Registering the Sync unit with Ford. You need to have a special log in to this Ford website to update their databases.
Once you are all setup and programmed you can go to the Syncmyride.come website and sign up for updates and get help with things. I tried to download the Sync checker tool and keep getting errors while trying to download. I'm pretty sure its a Ford thing. I used their little "chat with a rep" support thing but they we no help.
All in all, I paid around $100 and couldn't be happier with the outcome.

good luck!

UPDATE

Mine is all installed in my 08. I have the correct radio so that's not an issue. I went to Ford yesterday to have them program it so the voice command would work (the remote three button control). Well, come to find out unless you have a 2009 or later, its a no go. It all works otherwise. I can answer calls from the Sync hands free with no problems at all (hitting the "phone" button on the radio), it will also play my music via the bluetooth from my phone as well. The USB port works well too for playing music stored on a USB drive or IPHONE or USB player. The only thing it won't do because its not a 2009 or newer is make a call via the sync using the voice three button keypad. If you need to make a call (which I don't normally do), you need to initiate it with your phone.

I'm fine with all that, it also works if the radio is off to answer calls so, I'm happy with it. Not happy with the ford charge of $100 but, maybe this post will help others with my setup from spending any money for programing.

It will make calls via the radio but, I found it quicker just to start an outgoing call from the phone.

Please update the thread when you get everything working.

I have an 07 as well, but I am curious if running an 08/09 head unit would be the only other mod necessary to integrate the SYNC system, or if there is a difference in the wiring harness from 07 to 08/09.

If a head unit swap and this kit are all that are needed then I'm all over this mod

Default 2008 with Navigation Unit

Has anyone decided to try this with their OEM navigation unit? I have a 2008 that I purchased without navigation. However, I bought the OEM NAV unit online (it was taken out of a Mercury) and had it reprogrammed to work with my Mustang. The installation was simple, however I had to send the unit away to a third party to be reprogrammed. If you hold the 3 and 6 buttons down for 3 seconds the configuration screen shows you all of the options configured on your NAV unit. Mine says Phone Module - Not Available and Voice Recognition - Disabled. I wonder if it's simply a matter of having the NAV unit reprogammed again to change these options and get the unit to work with the SYNC kit. I'm doing some research on this and will post if I find any useful information. Has anyone else had any experience trying this?

I have installed the kit from ebay and had everything up and running just fine( minus the ford programming) for one day but all of a sudden, when I use the handsfree phone, people on the other line cant hear me. I contacted the seller and he sent me another mic. I hooked that up and no luck. people on the other line still cant hear me. =( i informed the seller about this again and hes sending me ANOTHER mic. Im pretty skeptical about it working...

any suggestions?

should i buy a whole other setup and re install?

I see you have a 2008, for that year its dependent on the radio type. Earlier in the post I posted the radio model numbers. Does the radio have the phone button or does it say "mute" on it too?

i'm having the same issue. I instaled the kit in my 2008. I originally had an older nav unit (with the mute button instead of phone) but I removed it and reinstalled my shaker 500 while I wait for my replacement newer generation nav to come in. Nonetheless I have the same issue. My bluetooth music works fine, and I can make and receive calls. However sometimes the microphone stops working and the other party can't hear me. I tried doing a Master Rest on the SYNC system which fixed the issue for a day but then the problem came back. I tried deleting the bluetooth connection from the iphone and setting it up again. This didn't work either. I also requested a replacement microphone from the seller of the SYNC system. I haven't tried it yet but will do so this weekend and report back. I also have an appointment with the dealer tomorrow to get the system setup with the syncmyride website and to get the software updates installed. Lastly, my new nav is due to arrive tomorrow and I plan to install it this weekend. I will report back when I try each of these and let you know if any reolve the issue. Please do the same on your end and hpefully we can get both of our systems working.

I have the late 2008 radio. It has the phone button. When i installed the entire unit everything worked great. The other person i was talking to was able to hear me. Then, the next day the microphone stopped working. Even after replacing it it with another mic. BT audio works, usb works, I can sync my contacts. just cant use the voice commands and now nobody can hear me =[
