1993 mercury cougar radio blows when insalled pleeeeze help

In my 93 cougar i had an aftermarket radio from kenwood installed wsith an aux port. when i plugged in my ipod it was a bit too loud and the radio blew (no power to the unit) so i got another one from a friend and that didnt work even when i installed it into a different car(bec i assumed it was the car that was the problem)then i bought a new one online and wen i installed it it dint work even when i tried in my friends car so i think my car is blowing all the radioes.
p.s.i checked all fuses in the car and theyre all fine, there is also power coming from the acc wire.

    It's likely that you are repeating the same mistake over and over. There are also internal fuses in many radios...I suggest that you have a radio install shop do the work for you rather than risking damage to your cars electrical system.

Some vehicles will not support aftermarket radios. The original radio wiring supports some functions of the vehicle, example being an alarm, interior lights, etc. It is possible one of the circuits has a blown fuse, and the radio is not compatible with your car.

Where is the obd2 plug in on an 1993 mercury cougar ar7

Your 93 does not have an OBDII plug. Those didn't start until 1995 or 1996, depending on the vehicle. There is a diagnostic plug under the hood. They moved them around a bit but it is usually on one of the inner fenders.

There is an aftermarket available for $40-160. If you were to take it to a local shop instead of the dealer you could probably save alot of money.

'93 Mercury Cougar Lighting/Electrical Problem

This sounds much like a fuse problem. I would definitely start with the fuses, check to make sure they are ALL in good condition and replace as necessary.
Secondly, make sure your grounds are good. Battery grounds, wiring harness grounds, etc.

Make sure your ground wire at the car did not get fried to a hot wire. It may have fire. That is the only reasonable thing it could be if it is blowing radios...

The best solution i can offer for this problem is to take it to the dealer, they will probably have to send the cluster out to have the odometer repaired. You can call them first to find out exactly wha needs to be done. Hope this helps.
