Installing aftermarket radio in 2004 ford focus

I am trying to install an aftermarket radio in a 2004 ford focus and I only have 2 plugs yet the stock radio has 3 plugs. We called a local radio installation place and they said something about bypassing the 3rd plug. Does anyone know how to do this?

You should buy the harness adapter for your focus that will make the job simple the new harness will give you only the wires you need to hook up your new radio good luck...

2008 ford f250. Have had two radios in truck, both aftermarket. Cannot get very good radio reception with either one. Last one installed is a gps unit installed at best buy when out of town.


Did you check out your antenna to see if it was alright? If you can try plugging in a different antenna and see if you get better reception.

Ok, so I have a 95 nissan maxima se and it has the stock radio with the tape player so I took all that out , now im about to install the new deck in but I noticed the wirers dont hook up with the stock...


Your best bet is to go to a good stereo store that can get you a wiring harness adapter that will plug into your car and be color coded to wire up to your aftermarket radio.

It will save you a lot of time and trouble.

Wiring diagram


My fault meant this as a solution post....

What do you need the diagram for? If your installing the radio, you do not need a diagram you need to go purchase the wiring harness for your make and model and year car. Match the colored wires together to the ones on the back of the head unit then connect them, then that harness plugs into your stock car harness that your stock radio unplugged from. You also probly need an antenna adapter cable that just connects to your stock antenna cable to add length and then plugs into your aftermarket radio. If you need a wiring diagram because you are trying to open you radio and fix it because it is broke or something...good luck to ya. Hope I helped... :)

What is a anti theft device? what is passlock?


well most newer cars have the anti-theft,vss,or other BS, wired thorough the radio harness for whatever reason they felt. however they now have by-pass modules for most aplications.

check this out. If you take the factory radio face (rack of buttons) in a 01 ford focus the car will not start, or if you turn the car off, and push the volum knob to turn the radio on for one hour then lock the doors from the remote, the remote will no longer unlock them without being re programed(after you break-in to pop the hood and cut power and then re-program)....fewww!!

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.

Radio in 1992 Honda Accord no longer works. Where can I get it looked at or replaced? Could I install the correct radio myself?


I'll locate you a stock radio you can pick up at a local salvage yard if you'd care to tell me your zip code.
Honda radios are notorious for burning out, and I am surprised yours lasted this long.
The other route you can consider is going with an aftermarket radio. There are plenty of places that sell them and you can also pick up a harness that matches your vehicles wiring harness so you don't need to do any wiring other than plug it in .

Connecting to a steering wheel buttons


Unfortuantly the steerring wheel audio controls can only interface with a stock radio. Once you replace the stock radio the buttons are useless and cannot be hooked up to any aftermarket radio, this goes for all makes and models of cars with audio controls on the wheel.

Hope this helps
