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

You have to cut the factory speaker wires on both sides of the amp and solder them together.(bypass the amp) Pull out the factory radio so you can identify the color of the speaker wires or look at the wire colors on the back of the factory speakers.

1999 ford expedition factory amp im trying to replace with aftermarket amp


First you have to locate the factory amp, find output plug then find each wire and run to your new amp. Your basically bypassing old amp. your left front, red with white stripe is possitive. Brown is negative. Right front possitive is green. Negative white/ orange, left rear possitive light blue/black, negative yellow, right rear possitive is purple/white, right rear negative is light blue. Good luck :)

Hooking up amplifier to stock radio in Lexus ls400 1991


Hi Robin, I think I may be able to help. The instructions are referring to an aftermarket stereo and not the factory one. Most aftermarket stereos have a blue wire that runs either the power antenna or an accessory that turns on with the radio(amp, eq, power crossover,ect.) As far as the RCA cables, once again, most aftermarket stereos have RCA outputs for an amplifier. Factory ones don't.You can go to Wal-Mart or ABC warehouse and buy a wire harness just for this particular application and then all you do is plug the harness into the factory harness, everything is all pre-wired so there is no guesswork involved and no mistakes.

I have just taken out my factory fitted stereo in my mondeo and have tried to fit another head unit but there is no sound coming out of the speakers


you have a factory amp, you need a aftermarket deck harness, it will plug into your factory deck wiring and then plug into your after market deck, your speakers will then work

Hello,

The factory amp is installed in a floor cavity underneath the seat.

Try this site for some pics of what it looks like:

Amp


Its a must to change your radio to an aftermarket radio because its safer and it has an rem wire that for the amp and subwoofer, if you run it a factory radio then the sound if any will be the voice and everything so it will sound distorted and crappy with abnormal bass
