These radios used capacitors in them that leak over time causing all sorts of problems. To have a trouble free unit, it will have to be refurbished. Check out www.SCCoA.com for more help.

My daughter has a 90 Thunderbird that had an original premium sound package. The stereo went kaput and she bought an after market replacement. I went to install it for her and unfortunately opened up a...


These cars have a factory amp system that will not operate correctly with an aftermarket stereo. You have two choices. You can either run new wires to the speakers your self which would bypass the factory amp. Or you can order the premium sound system Interface here http://www.myinstallkit.com/FORD/1990%20(90)%20FORD%20THUNDERBIRD%20Radio%20-%20Stereo%20Installation%20Kit.htm scroll about half way down the page.

Want to replace stereo in 2002 tbird, how do i access and connect to subwoofers and power amps. what do i need ?


The stereo in Ford products comes out with a special tool, Which you can find at a place that sells car radios. Remember that Ford used a Premium JBL/Philco stereo in your car at the factory.
Connecting subwoofers and power amps means going to the main fuse box under the hood rather than the smaller one in the cabin. You may actually wind up running a power feed directly from the battery. I would then buy one of the harness adapters from a stereo shop to match the new radio and equipment into my system. They come with instructions so that you so not have to butcher your wiring harness to install a new radio and speakers.
Comment: Over the years, I have seen some very nice cars depreciated in value when the owners cut into the harnesses to install sound ewquipment and made a mess of it. Use caution.
