Replaced stereo in 2004 Ford F-150: used a ford wiring harness with all wires connected correctly, but no power to stereo??

Check for a inline fuse, if no fuse is found, fit a power wire from the ignition switch to the power connection on the stereo via a inline fuse.

Hood release handle broke off

On some vehicles the hood latch can be released by working from underneath and using a coat hanger with a hook as a tool. It may be necessary to have someone push down on the hood while the coat hanger is being applied to relieve spring tension

2003 E250 Would like to replace original basic stereo radio (only two speakers in front doors at present) with JVC radio (that can connect to 4 speakers). Need radio removal directions and type of speaker...

There are 2 holes on each side of the face of the factory radio. Special U-shaped rods slide into the holes to unlock the clips and pull it out. You can buy them from a parts store for a few bucks or use a metal coat hanger and make them yourself (all they do is push straight in the holes). To install a (JVC) radio, you can buy an adapter plug from a car stereo shop or best-buy that connects to the factory harness.

Stereo removal??? What needs to be removed to get the radio out

Hi is it factory standard?

If so there should be 4 little holes 2 either side, you can get a tool to fit into these holes then the radio pops out, some are a bit different and you have to remove the little plastic trim around the stereo, then you slide another special tool down the side to pull it out, they are very cheap to buy the tool. this kit on ebay has all the tools for most cars, you can make your own tool also with a coat hanger.

How to remove radio from 2002 mazda tribute

You need a pair of U shaped unlocking tools. They are available at stereo installer stores, or even best buy, I fabricated a set out of a coat hanger! You pop the bezel off around the radio, and the release tools get inserted on the left and right sides of the radio deck

How do you remove a stereo from a mercury topaz 92'

Go to a bad neighborhood and leave the windows down. Assuming any of the car is left when you get back, the stereo should be gone. Actually, there should be four small screws in the front panel.

How do you remove a factory stereo from a 2008 ford explorer?

I'm not familiar with that exact model/year but for years ford has had the same setup. To remove the radio requires a special tool that you can purchase from an auto parts store for about $5. There should be a small hole in each corner of the radio, the tool slides into the holes and you'll hear a click letting you know it's in there correctly. Then you pull the tools outward and towards you at the same time and the radio will slide right out. Then it's a matter of unplugging a few connections on the back. To reinstall the radio slides right back in.

FYI- The tools look like two pieces of coat hanger bent into a U.

Jumped dead battery; radio won't work

Sounds like they connected the cables backwards,there maybe a direct fuse on the back of the stereo that got burnt up.If there's not a fuse on the stereo than its probably damaged beyond repair.

Assuming it's a Ford radio, you'll see 4 small holes on the radio front panel, 2 on each side. A pair of "U" shaped tools (buy them at almost any parts store) go into these holes, then pry outward to release the radio. I've made the tools myself by bending some stiff wire (a coat hanger works).
