You might try testing the power that leads into the insturment panel. You can remove the hole radio assembly by bending a wire coat hanger enough to get it into the two holes on the sides. When you pull it out, you will have depressed a couple of clips. The power switch is connected to the left side in the back of the unit. Hope this helps.

I have a 2001 Ford Taurus, just installed a factory stereo/heat control unit back in the car but I have no power to the stereo. What should I check?


I would check the fuses for the radio. One should be in the engine compartment distribution box and there should be another fuse in the interior fuse box. If these fuses are intact and you have a multimeter, I would check the presence of at least 2 pins with + 12 Volt on the radio connector. The pin out diagram can be seen if you do a search for the 2001 Taurus. Good luck, hope this helps.

I have an 02 ford explorer, the previous owner had a custom sound system installed. He took allof trhe custom speakers and amps out but left the stereo in,but it does'nt play. the stereo work ands powers...


sounds the like the vehicle had an oem amplifier that was removed, most after market stereo installers will trace the speakers wires individually by continuity to by pass the factory amplifier and wire the new head unit to the vehicles speakers, if the harness has been spliced or factory amp removed, you will need to check if the amplifier still exists (usually under passenger rear seat sometimes located in trunk area) and see if the harness has been bypassed. if so you will have to reconnect the harness by color code in order to use the factory head unit

I have a 2002 Ford Taurus with factory radio. I want to put an aftermarket radio in. All the mounting kits I have found have the rear defrost button on the opposite side as where mine is. What should I do?


If you can, loosen the ties that hold the wires for the button and see if they will reach the new location. If not, splice in a bit of wire to extend the reach. I recommend soldering the connection, but you could use crimp connectors with a larger wire. Make sure the wire you splice is a little bigger than the factory wiring.

Taurus 2001 radio location and antenna connecion


the radio that you see in the dash is your only radio!!! behind the radio is a antenna plugged into your radio(or not) if not then its going to be the biggest (most likely) black wire and you can probably figure out where it goes. theres only one spot for it to go!

Stereo stopped working along with speedometer


It's probably not a fuse. It sounds like your vehicle speed sensor went bad in the transmission. The reason your radio stopped working was because your radio is probably equipped with speed sensitive volume and it requires a speed signal to work.

Speakers wont work cant figure it out


have you verified that sound is comming from radio. Start from the begining. Splice the wire from the radio check that audio is comming from the unit. Then check to see if you have a factory pre amp in the trunk or hidden under a seat or something like that. If all the electical parts are good just run new wire, its a lot faster than tracking down a crimp or break in the wire.

THIS IS ASUMING YOU HAVE ALREADY VERIFIED THAT THE SPEAKER ACTUALLY WORKS, YOU HAVE DONE THIS RIGHT.
