The wiring of the stereo is mixed up. There is a possibility that the stereo ground is taken from the headlight connection and so the power is cut off when the positive comes in.
Remove the cord and check the connections of the Main aalways connected power , the standy by connected power through the Ignition switch and the ground connection.
One corrected it must work.

You are loosing the power signal , your RED WIRE needs to be 100% power (+12volts) all the time, and the ORANGE needs to be KEY ON power only correct , if that is so , use a test light and find the power wire that is 12 volts all the time, if you dont have one run a wire (12 gauge ) from the positive using a 15AMP fuse and attach it to your stereo.

GoodLuck

Sony xplod stereo wiring diagram


Yes you need to turn on the BOSE amplifier in the car to hear the sound. The wiring diagram is actually on top of the factory radio
You will need a 12v trigger to turn the amp on. this is assuming you have all the speaker (inputs) connected to the output from your new deck.

My factory stereo wont come out of mt 91 Tempo. I have the ford radio removal kit (the U shaped tools). Its completely stuck and wont budge. It doesn't even feel like there's anything holding the radio on...


hi there is a knack to doing this..when you insert the keys into either side of the stereo, make sure when you pull up..that you are also pulling outwards at the same time, this then pushes in the locks that hold the radio in...hope that helps

Stock Speakers wont work with new stereo plzzzz HELP


U have a Factory audio auxiliary amp in the truck, the radio is just a head unit with a preamp feeding a main amp, that is behind the right rear 1/4 panel trim panel in the cargo area, if your new sound unit has preamp outputs use them, other wise u must wire around the Ford factory amplifier.
