Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
That is odd... you say you replaced the stereo? Is it the original (OEM) stereo? If it isn't, the way to easily test the stereo's ability to power up or not, is to connect the red and yellow leads to the positive post of your car battery, and the black lead to the negative post. If the stereo is good, it should power up no problem. If it is the OEM, and you're just replacing the stock stereo, it could be a dead short (wire grounding out). The way to test that is to buy a test light (most any parts store carries them), turn the ignition switch to on, and check the wiring harness for the back of the stereo. You would attach the clamp to any unpainted metal surface in your car that is connected to the chassis, and put the test lead in each receptacle in the harness. At least 2 connections should light the test bulb up with the ignition in the on position. I don't know the schematics for it offhand, so I couldn't tell you which color wires should be lit ><. Hope this helps!
