Hi Everyone I was wondering if anyone ever tried to install the OEM / original / default / factory radio, of a 2nd generation Miate / MX5 into the DIN slot of a 5th generation Mazda 626 (1992 - 1997). Both looks like it has space for a Double DIN radio. The one in the MX5 sure looks like one, and I was thinking of installing a MX5 radio into my Doube DIN slot of my 626 (Ford Telstar TX5 version). Anyone tried this yet?
Hello all, I'm brand new to this forum, but its seems like the place to go for advice on how to complete my stereo upgrade. I have a 02 626 V6 and I wanted to replace the stereo head unit with a new fancy touch screen one and also install a backup camera. My new stereo: Jensen DMX5020 $145 on sonicelectronix Things I've done so far: -Removed old stereo -connected the mazda wiring harness to the stereo harness. -Connected it to my car's harness to test the stereo to make sure it works - it does. -installed the microphone for the bluetooth hands free calling - took off the A pillar on the driver side and ran the wire under the dash Things I could use some help with: 1.How to wire and install the backup camera -I know it must be powered by my reverse lights and that I need to somehow run the video feed cable from the truck (where the camera will be attached) to the stereo unit. -I'm not entirely sure if the stereo needs to be connect to the "reverse wire" - the thing that tells the stereo that the transmission has shifted into reverse and that the monitor of the stereo should have the camera feed on it. Not sure how or where to find that reverse wire. - There are a few unused (no match to the mazda harness) wires from the new unit's harness: -some dimmer wire - probably ok not being used -Reverse wire -Brake/park wire - probably to prevent certain functions of the unit from working while the car is in motion. 2. How to actually mount the new head unit into the Double DIN bay -I took the mounting brackets off of the old stereo and screwed them onto the new Jensen - not sure if I did this correctly or if the brackets will even work with the new stereo - I do have a dash kit, but I'm not exactly confident it will hold the new unit securely in the bay. The new unit has a lot less depth to it (how far it reached into the bay) and is a tad shorter (height) than the old stereo in terms of size. -Overall, I'm just really unsure on how the new unit will be securely mounted in the bay. The new unit did not come with its own mounting brackets. I will post pictures of the bay (most of you probably know what it looks like) as well as the new unit so you can get an idea of how it looks and how it might be mounted. Thank you!
