Some radios have an additional "universal" adapter that plugs into the radio harness and has the correct harness plug for your exact application. There are also "face plate" adapters available to make up for any size differences between old and new. (all cost extra but are worth it) Make sure these are available when you buy the radio. If you can't figure out how to remove dash cover, detailed instructions can be found in any inexpensive vehicle specific manual (good for other repairs as well) The only dimensional problem you may have is depth...Make sure that the radio you are buying will fit all the way into the dash without hitting an air box or other item you can't move. Wiring on all new radios are tagged so you know what they are. Tape over any unused wires to avoid shorts and static. Any fused wires should be positioned low where you can get to them if necessary for service without removing everything. When you need to tap a wire for power, use fuse block accessory port instead...otherwise you can overload an important circut, or trigger the airbag system.
Good luck

    Factory radio swaps may require some alterations to harness. be careful doing this or you can damage vehicle electronics.

1999 Ford F250 driving down the road loud pop in dash smoke coming from doesn't work and neither do turn signals. Fuse?

Well, the radio and the TS do not use the same fuse. Have you checked the fuse panel under the steering column to see if any fuses are open? Is the radio the original or is it aftermarket?

I replaced my ford Radio with another factory radio remaufactured. I plugged in the 2 plugs and the antennas, only the clock works. It will take CDs but won't play them, radio doesnt go to radio,

Modern automotive electronics are keyed to the VIN through the ECU to prevent theft, you must have the radio ID #, and key it into the radio with the number pads on the radio, only the dealership can retrieve the correct code for your vehicle. Probably not what you wanted to hear.

I've got a 2003 Ford F250 Superduty. Just yesterday, I noticed the radio would not shut off when I had the keys out and doors open. The cab lights will shut off normally when you shut the doors again, but...

try by taking radio out. you may have a bad connection, loose wire or short to radio. if not, spray all door switches with a good lubricant like wd-40 or pb blaster, open and close doors to loosen up the switches. to see if radio goes off properly. if there is 12 volts to radio, it may be a bad ignition switch. try the doors first. then go from there. have a good one !!

I need a fuse diagram for a `93 f250

If the radio still plays audio, its the little LED behind the screen that has ended its life. if you take the radio apart you will see where it sits behind the screen. if you are handy with a soldering iron, you can replace this rather cheap with a LED from radio shack. Hope this helps!
