Default 9R3Z-14D212-A Sync kit and hands free

I just ordered this kit (which I got for $60 brand new!). Anyone ever install this kit? I was told it will work with my 2008 non-nav system with the shaker 500. I only care about integrating my cell phone (hands free) into my radio system. The other stuff it does I can do without. So, would a dealer still need to program it after I did the install?

Any input would be great..

Thanks

Subscribing! I have always wanted the hands free option in my '08. Please post back when you get it installed...

The instructions that I saw online stated it was for a 2009 Mustang. Where did you see that it will work on a 2008?

It might. Found this on partscheap.com:
Installation Note: The Ford Sync system for the 2008-2009 Mustang will only work with non-navigation radios.
There are reports that the Sync system will work on a 2008 Job 2 Mustang and newer with the Navigation system, but voice recognition will not be supported for Sync features, bluetooth phone support is still functional as is manual operation
of digital media devices such as iPod, Zune, USB Flash Drives, and other supported mp3 players.

^^What he said.. There are web sites and other postings on the internet that states the same thing. 2008 will work as long as its not the NAV system.

slickman - what is the build date of your car? I would like to know if you get this working with your OEM radio...

From what I can see it is including a wiring harness and that has all the adapters to completely replace the existing harness. What I don't know is all the specific modules that it is including and their purposes. I can see why it is saying "non-nav" though because this wiring harness probably isn't designed for it as it's a preconfigured all in one plug and play. I don't see why it wouldn't work.

A few tips though if you're having trouble go through the how-to guides and find the ones installing navigation units. It'll show you how to access/undo everything. Also, I'm pretty sure the motors dealing with the Climate control *****, or atleast the doors for switching from AC/Defrost/etc are back there, so be sure not to stuff everything in there.

Keep us posted, thanks! Good find if it works!

Dang, got me all excited until I saw the non-nav part. I have some aftermarket unit that the PO installed in mine and I hate it.

From what I have found, there are two model numbers that were used in 2008 for the shaker 500 radios. One is the early version 8R3T-18C815-GB which will have the button with the phone on it that states "mute". Also it will mute the radio. The sync unit will not work on this radio.

The other radio is model# 8R3T-18C815-GD which also has the button with the phone on it but does NOT say mute (it will display no phone when pressed, not mute the radio). These will work with the sync kit listed in this post. I'll be verifying this as my sync unit will be here tomorrow.

I have the early 2008 radio as it mutes the audio (and displays mute) when I press the phone button. I kind of figured that I had an early '08 as I have the old 2-piece spark plug heads.

Oh well, guess I will have to get a Pioneer 4400 with Bluetooth! LOL

Or you can buy a new OEM head unit for $149 which I think is the cheeper way to go.

Got an '09 and just hit the "buy it now" button. I'm a bit skeptical though seeing that this kit is 400+ elsewhere. But hell, its only 60 bucks. How wrong could it be?

I was reading throught the install instructions last night, before I passed out, and I'm curious what you plan to do for the programming?
According to the install instructions here: http://www.partscheap.com/v/vspfiles...nc_6-18-08.pdf you need to belong to some "PTS Application" to be able to program the Sync unit.
Are you betting on it coming pre-loaded with the current software?

I was going to give my local Ford dealership a call to see how much they'll rape, I mean take from to do the work.

I think that's only if you plan on using the Sync service. If your only going to use the hands free, there is no programing setup I believe.

I guess we'll find out soon enough, right?
I'm still going to call Ford for SnG's to see what they charge. Im no stranger to manual labor and those instructions are well put together so that should be pretty easy.

Yeah, worst case is they need to program it. My only concern is I have a custom tune. Not sure I trust these monkeys.
