Question about 1996 Ford Windstar

1 Answer

Could someone please give me a simple (I'm auto mechanically challenged) step by step instruction on how to install a new radio in my Ford Windstar. It is a 1996 and the stero I am putting in is a Naxa NX 670 if that matters. Thank you.

Typaclly if you purchased the faceplate install kit, and harness kit, the install will be very easy. You will also get a set of instructions for each kit.
The first hurtle you will have to leap will be removing the old radio, this requires a set of removal tools that fit into the four holes in the face plate of the stock radio. This set may include 2 to 4 tools to put into the holes to unlock the unit, once you have it out, install your harness kit, faceplate and stereo.

Hope this is of some help.

Recall of 1998 windstar axle replacement in Minn. i never received a letter to have mine repaired. I bought mine in Waseca ,Mn. at Deml's Ford in 1998. I would appreciate a letter so i can have mine...

Hello fellow Windstar owner. I just took my 2001 Windstar into a local Ford Dealer here in Chicagoland to have my rear axle inspected. I can tell you that FORD is taking this recall issue very seriously and with that you will NOT need to produce any recall letter to get your vehicle inspected and then repaired. FORD goes by youre VIN Number as a means to track everything like this recall issue. By the way, FORD really impressed me with the repair that was done tommy rear axle and I am very hard to please (I am a former auto mechanic). You will not have any problems with FORD taking a look at your van.

Mass Air Flow Sensor 2004 Windstar

Located between the air box and throttle body on the drivers side. You really cant clean them except blow it out with air. Its better to replace it. If you break one of the small wires that measures air it will not work right and the car won't start at all. If check engine light is on take it to and auto parts store that will scan the computer for free.

Radio wires differ from the speaker to the radio

This is the most common problem with self installs.The best thing to do is to get the car radio installation plug,it will plug into the factory plug for your factory radio and will give you a color coded pigtail to wire into that usually matches up perfectly with new aftermarket car radios.If the wires are already cut then you best bet is to extend the wires so that they are easy to work with hookup the power,ground,antenna and try dirrerent combos to isolate each speaker and label the wires accordingly.

I want to put a new stereo in and dont know what the colors of the wires in the van go to

If you are replacing the factory radio just get a wire adapter, wire it to you radio and plug in. I don't recommend any other way unless someone already cut the plug. If so just stop at your usual mechanic and ask for a wire diagram I know I would give one to my customers.
