Radio doesnt work


If the radio itself is not recieving any signal, it is time to replace the radio. These are getting cheaper and cheaper in certain cars. When you go to replace it, the key to this is, purchase for around $20 the plug in harness. It gets **** connected to the new stereos harness and then plugs directly to the vehicles existing harness so you don't need wiring diagrams or screw with the lighting. You can be done in about 30 minutes even as a novice.

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.

Have you removed the original connector from you original stereo? If you still have the original connector in place you can get a new connector from the Ford dealer that will plug into your existing wiring and into your new deck. Ford connections are unique to Ford and you need to adapt them for this application.

Take the car and deck to the dealer and tell them what you need. Everything just plugs in and your original amp and speakers in the car will work.

Having said that there was an adapter available at Wal Mart of all places that did work. You may want to check there.

If you have removed the original connector then you need a wiring diagram.

The amp is located under the rear passenger side window. You need to remove the plastic side wall to expose it if you need access there. You can trace the wiring if needed.

Under the front bottom edge of the rear seat are clips holding the seat in place. Open the clips and the seat lifts off. You can then get to the amp as needed.

Someone had cut the factory plug off the stereo wiring and now im having a hard time finding another one. any suggestions?


Hi:
I had the same problem on my car I bought, and in your case, since a lot of Ford products use the same radio harnesses, you can probably find some junkyard with a really totaled out Ford that will let you cut the radio harness out of it for $5 or so. ( That is what I did, and carefully stripped and spliced the donor harness onto my car. I used solder and heat shrink tubing, but you could use crimp on automotive splices,no problem.

The alternate solution is to buy an aftermarket stereo , and use the harness they supply. Of course, you still have to properly connect it to your existing wires, so you need a diagram for that.You can usually upgrade later if you stay with the same brand of stereo too.

You could try a Salvage yard if you know what it looks like. Then I would think the Dealer may have a harness and experience with Ford radios. Radio Shack maybe, then last would be a Stereo shop but you need to know if they are a good installer. You would not want electrical problems after they work on it.
