Installing an aftermarket head unit into a 1994 Ford Bronco

I've installed a Sony head unit into my 1994 Bronco using a wire harness, but I can't get my speakers to play. If I directly hook a extra car speaker from another system to the unit, it plays fine. But when I hook the unit to the wire harness, I get no sound to the factory speakers. Do I need some sort of adapter?

    When i first installed the new HU i just hooked up the same color wires and it worked great except when i turned on my head lights. There is a orange dimmer cable (car side) that when hooked up shuts off my sound system when i turn my headlights on but when i don't connect it to the head unit everything works okay but no sound comes from my speakers

Are you using and after market harness to go from your bronco to the harness to the new radio. if so make sure all the colors are matched up (e.i. purple to purple, purple/black to purple/black). did the speakers work before the aftermarket unit. Also check the wiring at the oem speakers

NEED WIRING DIAGRAM


If you are referring to installation and have the aftermarket wiring harness, The wires should be color coded. RED, YELLOW, & BLACK are power, ignition and ground. These should correspond to matching wires on the back of the head unit (CD player). Match the colored wires from the back of the unit to the same colored wires on the aftermarket harness and then connect them using wire connectors/wire nuts. Once you have them into the correct order the aftermarket harness should connect into the harness in your vehicle. I hope this answers your question =)

Installed a Sony Xplode into a 99 Blazer and everything on the radio works but will not play through the speakers


The Bose system is complex - it has an amplifier separate from the Bose compatible radio. This amplifier takes low level audio signals from the radio, not full driver outputs from a replacement radio, and by trying to use the replacement radio you may have blown the amplifier. If that is the case, you may not be able to go back to the original radio.
The only option you may have with the replacement will be to find the Bose amplifier and bypass the connections to feed the replacement radio outputs directly to the speakers. This may not be as simple as it sounds, as distribution to the various speakers comes from the amplifier, not the radio, and the wiring from the amplifier to the radio may not have all the wires you need. Before going on, you had better get a wiring diagram for the Bose system (service manual or Alldatadiy.com).

For starters, I want to make sure. You did purchase a wiring harness that "plugs" into your vehicle, right? If not and you are attempting to hardwire to your vehicle, STOP! You run the risk of frying your entire electrical system. If you purchased a harness you can crip the wires from your head unit to the harness and the harness plugs in. DO NOT crip wires directly. You are experiencing just a little of what can happen. However, if you did purchase the correct harness, you need to check all our crimps again. Hope this helps.

take one of the front speakers out and pull out the head unit and unplug a set of audio wires(front right, front left ect.) and hook it up directly from the radio to the speaker there for bypassing all the cars wires. If it works then there's a problem with the car's wiring(maybe an inline amp). If it doesn't work, then try a known good speaker from somewhere else(home stereo speaker for example) and connect it to the radio, if the speaker works, your radio is fine and there may be a problem with the speakers. If it doesn't work then you have a problem with the head unit.

each speaker in your car runs the wiring thru an amp. So each spkear has its own amp for the bose system. You can not hook up a none bose radio If you do you will need to run new wires and replace all the speakers. Sorry.

Do I need a wiring addaptor to install this stereo into my 2004 f150?


Yes, I recommend a vehicle specific wiring harness for the installation to be proper. When installing aftermarket stereo units in some vehciles, it is necessary to insure that all of the vehicles components are receiving power during normal operation.
FYI, to obtain the proper harness, you will need to provide a bit more information about your vehicle, such as 2 door or 4 door, what version of the Ford stereo is currently installed and whether or not the unit amplified.
