Try finding one in a local junk yard (cheapest solution).

You can buy a replacement from a Ford dealership.

You can also buy a replacement from numerous online stores. Here is an example of one for your vehicle. http://www.installer.com/cars/by_car.php?carid=2127

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.

I have a 95 gmc sierra 2500 and im trying to put in my aftermarket rafio so i cut the stock harness out the square puece that goes in back of stock radio and now i cant figure out what wire is what i got...


I would suggest you spice the wires back to stock harness by male and female connections and tape over them with black tape then get a stereo install kit that includes a wiring harness ( cost about $20 maybe or less) for the year of truck you have... it will plug right to your stock harness ...never just cut stock stereo wires from stock plug it will be more of a headache than you think trust me I've installed all my own stereo system been there done that... good luck

Putting a new radio in my car, need to know what color wire what.


Here is a website you can go to find which wires are which. http://www.modifiedlife.com I would also suggest going to places like Car Toys and get a wiring harness to make your installation pain free. If you have the original factory harness for the old stereo still on, all that you would have to do is connect the harness to your new radio and plug it in to the factory harness. No cutting wires necessary.

Im putting n a stereo but i dont no the color code


The stereo side of the wires should be labeled. Check out the12volt.com for a wiring schematic for the truck side. I advise against cutting and splicing wires for a stereo installation though. They make inexpensive harness adapters that will allow you to splice into the stereo harness without cutting into the factory wiring.

Wiring harness


you should never cut the wires on your factory harness... metra and other companys have harnesses that fit your car and would provide you with a correct wire color code you need to hook up a aftermarket stereo keep that in mind but i will post the wire diagram u are looking for

Stereo wiring


You might save yourself a lot of headaches by stopping by a car stereo sales/installation place, and ask for wiring adapter harness. They should have an adapter plug that goes from your factory plugs to the new stereo. $10-$20 well spent. You may even find what you need at an auto parts store that sells stereos too, or radio shack.
