    After 2 days of internet research, I have come across several variations of "Fords" radio wiring schematics. In my particular case it seems, The radio uses a body ground, or system ground. The wires are designated power feed to each speaker, and the body is the ground....completing the circuit. In my case, and for my "Peace Of Mind" I will feed two wires to the individual speaker to supply both signal and ground.

Color codes for stereo


They make kits just for this. Just plugs into the existing harness and then you run you wires to the wires from that harness, some may even have matching plugs that go directly to the Head units wire harness plug. I did My Mustang by cutting into the wire Harness and simply used a multimeter to check for battery, memory 12 volts and running light or dash board Illumination wires then you can test the wires coming out from the stock radio to see which are right, left , front, rear, antenna out, etc..

I just labeled them with magic marker on some masking tape with what they were before I cut off the harness permanently.

I cant get sound out of my speakers. i put in a new stereo and hooked it up


Did you use a wire harness specific to your vehicle year and model? Make sure you get the right harness, depending on what factory system came with the car(base or mach460 sound systems), If your speakers were working prior to replacing the radio, then there's a possibility that the harness may not be compatible. also, the car may be equipped with a factory amp(mach460 systems). Here's a link that may help you figure it out. http://www.modifiedlife.com/2000-ford-mustang-car-stereo-wiring-instructions/

Need wiring guide for replacing stock radio 1996 ford windstar with Dual Model XD 1222 radio have harness still need wiring assistance


I would get an adapter harness that will plug into your existing vehicle plug, and the wires are color coded to match up to most aftermarket stereos. You could check e-Bay, or a local automotive audio store for the adapter harness.
