There is a separate plug for the speakers, if you are replacing a non factory radio then maybe these speaker cables were re-routed to an amp. or something?

Radio wires differ from the speaker to the radio


This is the most common problem with self installs.The best thing to do is to get the car radio installation plug,it will plug into the factory plug for your factory radio and will give you a color coded pigtail to wire into that usually matches up perfectly with new aftermarket car radios.If the wires are already cut then you best bet is to extend the wires so that they are easy to work with hookup the power,ground,antenna and try dirrerent combos to isolate each speaker and label the wires accordingly.

Ok my explorer was broken into and they stole my cd player but cut my factory wiring harness off so i need help hooking up another cd player to the factory wires without the plug


I suggest you go to a junk yard find another 2000 Explorer. Cut the radio wires and plug out of that truck. Then just match up the colors and attach that plug to your truck. I would suggest soldering the wires together to avoid problems down the line. Good Luck!

Where can I get a speaker wiring chart for 97 Ford Explorer


Perhaps there was another system installed at another time and someone cut the wires within the system to make that particular stereo system work. Inspect the wires all the way from the decks wiring harness to the speakers, they could be cut and you might be able to splice the wires and reconnect them or you may have to run seperate speaker wire for each speaker to resolve this issue.
