It is located behind the stock stereo up in the back farther and it look like a black box. The wires depend on the radio but if its a cd player go to like walmart and look at the radio wire harnesses and look for the one that'll work for your vehicle

Acura cl 1997 2.2 bose amplifier location


The best way to install an aftermarket radio in your vehicle is to install new speaker wires. To bypass the amp takes quite a bit of work and the factory speaker wires are too small for a performance system.

I have a 95 thunderbird lx need to know what wires are what for stereo.


Im not sure on the 95. But the 96/97 they had factory amplifiers in the trunk. You could install a new radio but you need to bypass those factory amps. Metra or another kit manufacture will sell you the harnesses you need. One for between the factory plug and the radio. Metra will have the wires labeled as to what they are to connect to. The other end of the wires should be your aftermarket. Which will be in the users manual or install guide that came in the box. If your trying to bypass the factory amps in the trunk and you get stuck. Head on over to the guys at TCCOA.com visit the forums and you will get more specific help from people who still own those cars.

These cars have a factory amp system that will not operate correctly with an aftermarket stereo. You have two choices. You can either run new wires to the speakers your self which would bypass the factory amp. Or you can order the premium sound system Interface here http://www.myinstallkit.com/FORD/1990%20(90)%20FORD%20THUNDERBIRD%20Radio%20-%20Stereo%20Installation%20Kit.htm scroll about half way down the page.
