2004–2010 Ford Focus Stereo Wiring

The second gen Ford Focus has very similar car stereo wiring to the first generation. There are two exceptions however that you must be aware of. The second generation Focus Stereo Wiring uses the switched 12 volt accessory through the car’s CAN data network. This wire is a GRAY wire with a ORANGE stripe, or a VIOLET wire with an ORANGE STRIPE.

Also you will need to wire the Focus Stereo Wiring illumination through the GRAY wire with an ORANGE stripe, or a VIOLET wire with an ORANGE STRIPE. Like the 12 volt accessory, the Focus Stereo Wiring illumination is controlled through the CAN data network.

The third generation Focus features a highly restyled dashboard. This factory stereo is nestled into a molded dash, so upgrading is slightly more complicated. Like the generations before this one, the third gen Focus needs an car stereo radio install kit.

    • Hi Chenago!

      You can opt to use an adapter for your steering wheel controls. These kinds of kits can easily be found online through Crutchfield or a similar brand and will connect via a plug and play connector to the back of your Ford Focus stereo.

      Thanks for commenting! Best of luck!

  1. 2017 Ford Focus ST.

    I found the Brown wire with a red stripe to be the power wire, along with the black solid wire being the ground. However, on my Pioneer AVH600EX there is a yellow wire for “Memory/Constant”, where do i attach that wire into the factory harness? Ive done everything from splicing into the 12V cigarette lighter, to running it to the fuse box using an aux power supply like for example the interior lights or even tried the luggage compartment fuse. The radio will power on in either scenario, however the it will stay on even after the car is locked and shut down.

    Please Help!

    • Hi Branden, thanks for reading.

      Okay so your Pioneer AVH600EX stereo has a memory / constant wire but the Ford Focus stereo stays on regardless? I would try tapping the Focus ignition column. Using a multimeter, measure the switched power wire. This is the wire that will measure voltage with the Focus key switched to the “ON” position.

      Try that next and let me know! Hope that helps. Thanks for commenting!
