Ok try this link : http://www.installdr.com/Harnesses/Ford-Wiring.pdf

TIP: the best way to test speaker wires to be sure is with a small battery (triple AAA or double AA should be fine or 9v is easiest) and touch the positive and neg terminals of the batt to the speaker wires and you should hear a popping sound in the speaker and to determine which wire is positive and neg just look at the speaker and if it moves outward when you touch the wires to the batt then the polarity is correct if it goes inward than it is backwards.

Hope this information helps

I want to change my F-150 radio, basic, with a radio/cassette/cd, will I need a different harness?


You will need a harness adapter for your model truck. This you will want to solder and heat shrink over the solder joints (Dont just twist tem together) then just plug it in to the factory harness.

You will probably need an adapter kit also.

The wiring harness adapter should come with the color codes for the wires corresponding to your trucks speaker and power wires pinouts make sure you correctly connect them to the color codes of the stereo for proper speaker placement and voltages

Installing newer radio in older truck


Hello zachary_reed,

What you need is an aftermarket wiring harness. These are made by Metra, Scosche, and others and are made to plug directly into the OEM radio harness. It appears that the one you want is the Scosche FB02B available from SonicElectronix. You simply connect the wires from your new receiver to the harness wires and then plug it into the factory radio plug. Another online retailer that sells aftermarket harnesses is www.crutchfield.com. Your local car audio shop or perhaps Best Buy may also have the wiring harness.

Be sure to match up the wires from your new radio harness to the aftermarket harness by FUNCTION, not by color. For example, most newer receivers will use Yellow as the 12V constant (hot) wire. The wiring color code for your F150 is shown here. Make sure that the pin on the aftermarket harness is connecting the yellow from your new receiver to the green/yellow of the OEM plug and so on.

Hope this helps.

05 Ford F150 Radio doesn't work.


I had the same problem and i brought a new ford oem cd player 2 times and my mechanic says its an electrical problem with some fords not the Cd player or the radio. So your cd player may not be junk, it may be electrical or wiring problem.

Need To Wire In A Aftermarket Radio In A 2008 F-150


Easiest way is to go to Crutchfield.com web site, When you order a radio face plate or factory wireharness they give you a free installation kit which shows the color codes of each wire for the radio. Also, when you get the wireharness you don't have to cut any factory wires, it just plugs into your factory harness and you connect the open ends to your new radio.
