Question about 2004 Ford F150

3 Answers

Radio Aux feature and not plug connection

I have a 2004 Ford F150 Supercrew. I have this model radio (4L3T-18C815-AM) with a AUX button. However, there is no where to plug in to the aux input. There is an adapter (PIE FRD04-AUX) available but I don't want to use this method. I have removed the radio and would like to splice a RCA cable plug in to the wire harness. However, I do not have the wiring diagram to tell me what wire is what. Can you give me the wiring diagram for the 2 connectors(one is 24 pin and one is 16 pin) that plug into the back of the radio and the wiring diagram for 8 pin connector that is part of the same wiring harness. I also need the connector part numbers on the internal cable and on the connectors on the rear of the radio.

An easier method to creating an AUX imput which will be much cleaner and be easily removed is called an RF modulator. This will "T" into your antenna behind your dashboard. You will tune to a specified channel and you will recieve clean imput from whatever device that is plugged into your modulator. You will have to find antenna adapters but crutchfield.com can easily help you. My advice is to install this. You wont have to hack up your factory wiring and this setup is compatible with any vehicle just change the adapters. Good luck.

Time to see the dealer! Unless your wires are tagged, or you have the ford shop manual (not Haynes or Chilton)

Suggest you don't splice unless you are perfectly sure of what you are doing, you can burn out your radio and damge other components up to including the ECM, and you for sure don't want that. (Big Bucks)

If money allows, take it to a professional audio installer. They seem like magically endowed with wiring information.

Or you can try talking to the audio shop guys over a cold one. They are always very helpful and have the right info, especially the guys at the front desk, because they always think is too complicated for you to handle, so the will offer all of the technical know how, because you don't know, so the more complicated they make the more apt you are to take the installation to them. But if you are saavy, then you will be able to sort out what you need.

My radio has an aux button, but no aux jack, is one hidden somewhere for use in different model style, ie sle, lx


if you have aux button there is a plug wire that mite be in the dash of the car, you could go to the radio manufacture website see if you can find the users manual, or installation guide, operational manual, the aux mite be a wifi option on other device of similar radio, that radio may have many versions and the version you got does not have that option with the cheaper version of radio that was installed when the car was made.
go to manufactures website, service, make, model,
it may need drivers to run the aux.

2009 Chev Uplander radio keeps quitting and displaying Aux Input Device


There is a short in the aux input 'hole' that receives the wire. When you plug in the wire from your mp3 the radio automatically switches to aux. Since there is a short in the plug when you hit bumps or the vibration etc. the radio thinks that it is receiving a plug in and switches to aux. You will have to have the radio physically repaired (it will have to soldered) to repair the short. I own 2 of these vans and my parents own one and all three have had this issue. It is usually created from a wire plugged into the port hole and getting bumped or something which causes the port to loosen. Over time the metal connections inside short out. Just my two cents.

How do you remove the radio from the 2004 Mitsubishi Outlander? Do you know if there is an aux port in the back of the stock infinity radio?


Remove the 3 knobs for air system.
Remove the 2 small philip screws at bottom.
Pull bezel straight out.
Remove 4 larger philip screws on either side of radio.
Pull radio straight out.
To find out if your radio has "AUX IN", hold CD button for about 2-3 secs. If AUX appears on display your model has "AUX" connector in back. 2003 and early 2004 do not have "aux in".

I need a wiring diagram for a 2001 ford f150 trailer hitch plug in. i got a new heavy duty trailer connector and i need to know the color code of the wires


Hey Bryan

I've got them for Six and Four wire plugs

Six wire plugs:

Horse, stock or utility trailers:
White = Ground - GD
Yellow = Left turn/Brake -LT
Green = Right turn Brake -RT
Brown = Tail and clearance lights - TM
Red or Black (not both) = Battery, aux power - A
Blue = Electric Brakes - S

Recreational Vehicle: (color, use, plug mark)
White = Ground - GD
Yellow = Not used -
Brown = Right turn Brake - RT
Green = Tail and clearance lights -TM
Black = Battery, aux power - A
Red = Left turn/Brake - LT
Blue = Electric Brakes - S


Four wire plugs:
White = Ground
Yellow = Left turn/Brake
Green = Right turn Brake
Brown = Tail and clearance lights


Ground should be 10ga.
Others 14 ga

Best regards
Mike
