It would seem so but dont quote me. Remember I said Probably not but technology these days....I need to understand something.

Are you wanting to put in a SONY sytem to this vehicle or this control head to a SONY system?

I want to get rid of what's in the top picture and replace it with what's in the bottom pic, screen and all, when I get the car. I really like the screen.

This is going to be a "no joy" deal.

The wiring harness will be totally different, possible interference with police level sub systems, internal MFT components will be missing.

You didn't show the steering wheel, are the control systems present there?

Here is what the steering wheel on the Police Interceptor Sedan looks like. Mine wont have the remappable buttons however like this does (the numbers above the buttons on the right)

Also, I included a pic of the audio set up on the Sedan and the console on the Police Interior Upgrade Package, what mine will have, if that helps

These are screen grabs I found elsewhere.

Not going to happen. Totally different harness. Many speakers and modules to add. Cars are not simple these days.

Sorry Ghost Rider. If you are thinking audio try a portable Sirius unit, they can be used with a empty FM Frequency and the only external indication is the magnetic mount antenna. They work I have one for our 02 Accord, all the other vehicles are factory OEM equipment.

I wouldnt see much of a problem but check with your Chain of Command and Fleet maintenance director just to cover yourself.

If I had the access to buy an Interceptor, I can't say I wouldn't have taken it.
