Question about 2003 Ford Thunderbird

2003 - 2005 Ford Thunderbird Radio wiring

Are the wiring harnesses different in the 2003 and 2005 Ford Thunderbird? I want to remove the factory radio from my 2003 Thunderbird and replace it with the radio from a 2005 Thunderbird that has Satellite capabilities.

    I am not sure they are the same wiring. I have just tried to have that very thing done and apparently the wiring is different.

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.
