Question about 1998 Ford Escort

DAUGHTERS 1998 FORD ESCORT STEREO WON'T PLAY?

I RECENTLY CHANGED HER TWO FRONT DOOR SPEAKERS BECAUSE THEY SOUNDED BAD WITH A PAIR I BOUGHT FROM WALMART. THE STEREO POWERED UP AND THE VOLUME BAR INCREASED WHEN I TURNED IT UP BUT NO SOUND FROM FRONT OR REAR SPEAKERS. I TOOK THE FRONT SPEAKERS BACK OUT AND PUT THE ORIGINALS BACK JUST TO SEE WHAT WOULD HAPPEN? STILL NO SOUND FROM FRONT OR BACK. IS THEIR A RESET BUTTON? I'M LOST? THANKS BILL

On some wiring systems you have to make sure the wires are not touching neg. and pos.just try some speakers without actually installing them. make sure mute button is not on.

Ford Escort 1998 Radio Antenna problem


Go to Crutchfield.com, check out item # 12040UV42, I think this will solve your problem, it's a 6inch male to male adapter. Let me know if it works, if not I'll try to help some more. Happy listening! Almost forgot, it's $9.99.

1998 Ford Escort Stereo Removal


there are two holes in either side of the face plate. There is a tool (shaped like a pair of elongated horseshoes) that you can use. But I have gotten them out without the tools by taking 4 small nails inserted in the holes and a slight outward pressure to compress the clips while pulling on them.
Once you get it out, you will see the mechanism and smile.
