Question about 1996 Mercury Cougar XR7
Was this a factory radio? did the antenna work before the install? make sure the power antenna has power when the radio is turned on, go to the radio connector and when u turn the radio on two of the wires in the connector to the radio should light up a test light, one will be the antenna and the other the auxilary amplifier (is equipped), here are the wire colors I do know, just eliminate them and what is left will be the antenna trigger wire..
