Most factory stereos are larger than after-market stereos, and after you install an after-market stereo there will be a large gap where the factory stereo used to be. You can go to most stereo retailers to find an install kit specific to your model of vehicle. It is possible to install the stereo yourself, but from experience it has been easier for me to just take it to a retailer and let them do the dirty work for you. Some retailers even offer free installation with/without a minimum purchase.

I have a 2004 freestar s with a factory am/fm radio. i installed an am/fm/cd radio. it will not recognize cd's in the player. tho original radio has only 1 plug port, the new radio has 2 ports. is the...


is it a new cd/radio ? the wiring is the same for a radio with or with out a cd player , the cd should work once the radio is connected , the other port you mention may be relevent as the original radio was a factory installed , these are usually designed to be useless to be used in other vehicles as a theft deterrent , i would remove the new radio and have a good search in the radio space as there may well be the second connector you require , be very carefull as there are many sharp edges and the apeture is not very large , the second connector , if there, will most likely be taped to another loom so as to keep it away from touching other parts so a good torch and have a search , keep me posted if you wish

Factory radio wont work


Make sure the wires for the new radio are color to color when installing it in your vehicle aka the wires behind the CD player. Make sure all of them have connectors not the black tape cause it will melt and could cause a fire.

REMOVAL OF THE RADIO

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Wait at least 60 seconds before beginning the remainder of the procedure, in order to disarm the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS).
  2. Using a plastic trim tool, remove the radio panel. Pry the lower part of the radio panel away first, then separate and remove the panel.

WARNING When removing and installing the floor console, do NOT allow it to bump against the SRS-ECU!

  1. For 1995-98 vehicles, remove the floor console assembly, as outlined in Section 10 of this manual.
  1. Remove the mounting bolts and pull the radio receiver, tape player or CD player out slightly. Detach all harness connectors and remove the unit from the vehicle.

Wiring difference


If your installing a stock radio/cd player from another Dodge the wiring plug is the same and will fit.If your installing a aftermarket radio/cd player(JVC,Pioneer,etc)you will need to buy a adapter plug that wires up to the radio and is a direct fit to your factory wire harness,so your not cutting your wires.When you buy the adapter plug it comes with a wire diagram of which wire is what.Your aftermarket radio should have a diagram also,either on it or in the manual.Hope this helps you.

No sound from speakers


did you check to make sure your vehicle didnt come with a factory amp, if it has one is it turning on? or did you remember to disconnect the negative battery cable while installing your radio, i know thats a dumb question, once i was installing a pioneer a barely crossed a couple wires and fried the radio, the radio itself worked fine and all the features etc, but it never did play sound again. i always disconnect the power now!!

Just get an adapter harness. they are only about $10.00, and will plug into your factory wiring, just like the stock radio did, and then the other end plugs into your new radio. Skoche (sp!) is the major manufactuer fof these (WalMArt caries the in car audio), also ebay.

Installing Alpine CDE-9852 CD Reciever In A Ford Mercury Sable LS


well most commen tool is a phillips head screw driver (+) to remove components to get the old deck out you'll need a dash kit to mount the new radio in 15 buck from canadian tire or audio shop...
the easyest way to wire this up would be getting a harness to plug into the factory harness too get the color code and then u just make the connections red to red yellow to yellow makes it real simple that way... the other way is to get the hanes manual for your vehicle then find out what color each wire is then yu have to cut the factory harness wire up from the book takes alot longer but can be done its worth the 12-20 dollars to get the job done if you need more help ask

No power


My guess is that when you pushed the player into the dash, you pinched a power wire, resulting in a blown fuse. Check the vehicle's fuse box. Most vehicles have at least two fuses that provide power to the radio, though they may not all be labeled as radio fuses. You may need to check all the fuses in the vehicle, including any fuse box under the hood.
