Does the new stereo come on? Check that you connected the speaker wires correctly. Both positive and negative speaker wires from the stereo need to be connected to the speaker leads in the vehicle.

My radio has all the bells and whistles. It is a large square box that an aftermarket radio will not fill. It seems to have no reception at all. when it gets warm it starts to recive but very weakly. ...


A used one will work, you can get the code at the dealer. As for aftermarket radios: standard aftermarket radio size is referred to as 1 din. Your stock stereo is 1.5 din. To install an aftermarket stereo in Amy car requires an install kit, in your case the kit will make up for the size difference by just filling the gap with black plastic. But there are aftermarket stereos that are 1.5 din. They will still require an install kit, but will completely fill the hole in your dash. If you're planning on getting a $99 stereo at a parts store don't bother and just find a stock one. But spend $150 on an aftermarket stereo and you'll be very happy. Good luck.

Radio controls on steering column do not work. All six pushbuttons are dead and the fuse is fine.


If you have an aftermarket Stereo you steering wheel controls will not work because the aftermarket stereos are not compatible with them. If you still have a stock stereo i dont know what to tell ya. Hope this helps.

I replaced the stock radio with an aftermarket one and my tail lights and dash lights dont work now


Most likely you got the illumination wire for the stock radio grounded. The stock radio has lights in it that are connected to the dash lights to illuminate the dials of the radio. Most aftermarket stereos don't have a hook up for that. The wire may have got hooked up to ground. I would check the fuse to see if it's bad. Also you might want to undo the new stereo, replace the fuse, if it's bad, and check the wires for battery when the headlights are on.

Installing an aftermarket stereo in 1996 explorer...sound issues.


You may have a factory amplifier in the rear of the explorer in the right cargo panel. You need to supply power to it by connecting the amp power on (Blue/White I think) in the dash to a power source (such as red on your stereo harness) so it comes on with the key. If you do have the amplifier, that's why you have no sound.

Replacing my stereo harness? or getting it to fit my aftermarket


should go to any local junkyard to get the stock harness, or you can decipher and splice each vehicle wire to the appropriate wire on the stereo. If it was me, i'd go the junkyard route, much easier in the long run.

Cd's will not eject


IS this the stock stereo that came with the vehicle or aftermarket
if its stock than it means its gone time to replace it
all stereo's usually have a fuse built into them in the back underneath the dash that can only be accessed when the entire stereo is removed it may be blown
