I have a 1991 ford festiva i changed my radio and now my shifter and my dash lits dont work are they wired in with the factery radio


Hi, the factory radio uses the illumination wire, but the aftermarket radio does not. You have to make sure that wire is taped off so it doesn't short the illumination circuit. Check your tail lights fuse. If it's blown, pull the head unit and disconnect/tape off the illumination wire (blue with a white stripe) from the factory harness. Then put in a fresh fuse. If you have more questions, please specify the model of the head unit.

You have it right. Use a 12 volt test light to see if there is power between the gray and brown wires when the key is on. If there is power there, you may have got hold of a bad radio.

unless you have a power antenna or an external amp, all those are extra wires. just cap them off. the orange wire is only used if the radio has an illumination feature that allows dimming on the radio. it is not needed to see the radio. DO NOT connect the blue/white from the radio to the orange of the harness. whenever you turn the radio on it will send 12V to your cars illumination circuit. this could damage your lights, dash lights and maybe the radios output.

It sounds like they messed up your installation. You can confirm their work by verifying that each wire was attached properly.

Click on this link for a PDF of the installation instructions of the radio (If you don't have the installation guide that came with the radio).

Illumination is the grey wire from the car to the orange with white stripe from the radio.

I suspect that the yellow wire from the car is not connected properly. When the orange wire (constant power from the car) is attached, but not the yellow wire you can insert and eject cds, but it will not turn on. Constant power is used for maintaining the clock and preset radio stations.

If everything looks correct, I would take your car back to the installer and have them correct the issue.
