Just get a wiring harness from ebay or amazon, Best Buy, or even Walmart. 7-12 bucks or so. Here's a link to one on Amazon.

As for the amps, I'm not sure if the 88s had them or not but I would just run new wires from the head unit to whatever speakers you are going to use. Although the factory wires can be used. Once you plug in the harness you will know by the color coding of the harness which wires go to which speaker + and - If you have an amps, just locate them and cut the wires going IN to the amps and then splice or solder in a new piece of wire to the corresponding wire and then hook up your speakers as you normally would.

Might be able to get an adaptor that plugs straight in painlessly.
Failing that it's the standard trace and identify method that eats time like crazy.

I need a radio wiring diagram for a 2003 ford windstar


Which diagrams do you need?...if it is to install an aftermarket deck, get an adapter so u dont cut into the factory wiring harness..the adapter plugs into the factory plug and allows u to solder the aftermarket radio wires to the other side of it.I have attached a link to where u can get the adapters...unfortunatly this wont allow me to send u my radio schematics that are in PDF format.

Change out the factory stero for an aftermarket head unit


Once you remove the screws to the console panel and remove console, you will see 4 scews that hold the stereo in tact, remove them, pull stereo, disconnect wiring harness and antennae. If you need a wiring diagram you can go to 12volt dot com or installer dot come. I suggest using the quick connect wiring harness adapter

I'm trying hook up an aftermarket car stereo and i cant figure out where to hook the orange and orange/orange and white wire. I need the factory wire diagram


http://i267.photobucket.com/albums/ii320/RonJ_HCF/picture_2980.jpg

The picture says it is for 1999-2000 models, but also works for 1998.

Honda does not have orange wires, i checked a Pioneer and it doesn't either. Could it be that the yellow wires look orangeish?

Be careful, because many aftermarket units have 3 power wires: Unswitched (memory cable), switched (power cable) and dimmed (match the dashboard illumination intensity). Also, most aftermarket units have a power out, to activate the power antenna. Connecting this cable in the wrong position will probably lead to a serious short.

I have a 92 marquis, and ive just changed out the factory stereo with a aftermarket. How can i hookup the amp that came with the bose system??


If you bought a wiring adapter kit for the aftermarket stereo, the unit should hook up directly to the stock bose system. Note: If there is sound coming from the speakers after installation, the amp IS hooked up...the speaker wiring is routed to the factory amplifier, not the stereo itself, the stereo wiring is just signal leads to the amplifier. In some instances, you may have to connect the amp remote wire to the remote wire coming from the aftermarket stereo(blue wire). I hope this helps. Any other questions, just reply.

These cars have a factory amp system that will not operate correctly with an aftermarket stereo. You have two choices. You can either run new wires to the speakers your self which would bypass the factory amp. Or you can order the premium sound system Interface here http://www.myinstallkit.com/FORD/1990%20(90)%20FORD%20THUNDERBIRD%20Radio%20-%20Stereo%20Installation%20Kit.htm scroll about half way down the page.

Make sure the red wire on the unit is hooked up to power. The blue antenna wire is hooked up (or to the factory amplifier) and the yellow wire on the radio is hooked up to a key on power supply. If it works and you lose the memory when you shut the key off, switch the red and yellow wire power supplies.

Wire harness dont know how to hook up radio cause colors dont match up


If your puting in a aftermarket stereo system, they make adapters that will plug into the factory harness and have a diagram of what to hook up to your new stereo. They should have one of these at a stereo store or even auto parts or Wal Mart. I had to put one in my 89 Caravan and 88 Prelude. I got them from the local stereo store and they were about $12 bucks or so. Depends on how much your stereo place overcharges.

Hope this works for you....
