Wiring for stereo in 94 ford explorer

I'm trying to wire in an aftermarket deck on a 1994 ford explorer. I bought a wiring harness for it. It came with 2 similar pieces in the package. one for power options and such and the other for all of the speakers. I have the power harness all wired in but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to wire in the other harness. The stock deck has an square shaped plug and I'm pretty sure that's where the speaker harness should be. the harness I bought will not fit into that plug. Nor can I find a base. I dont want to just cut the plug off and find out that I shouldnt have.

Sounds like you have the Premium Sound system. The main power plug is long and probably black, the other plug is square with a grey round cord coming out correct?

You can either take your power harness back and get the correct one ( a little more expensive) or run ALL 4 sets of speaker wires back to the right rear quarter panel. That is were the OEM amp is mounted and taking that panel out requires you to remove the top and bottom tailgate trims, a dozen screws, the seat belt D-ring and 4-5 plastic push clips that will probably snap off...:( Also, this will not make the OEM subwoofer work.

From 20 years experiance in this biz, save the time, spend the extra 30$ or so and just buy the correct connector. Check MetraOnline.com and search there.

How do I wire after market stereo to 94 ford probe


check the radio stores as you may be able to get a radio harness to connect the aftermarket radio to the factory wiring harness so you won`t have to cut and splice, its just a plug and go.

Aftermarket stereo turns on but can't hear anything 1997 explorer


Did the truck have the premium sound system? If so, you will need to connect the blue remote wire to the blue remote wire on the harness. You may also need a special harness to bypass the factory amplifier.

If you mean you bought a wiring harness adapter for your car so you could hook up an aftermarket deck - yes it's just color for color then.

Have sony cd player and wires in my 94 ford tarus dnt match up 2 my sony cd player


GO to your local Walmart store and in the Car stereo dept. You will be looking for a factory to aftermarket wiring adapter FD02B made by Scosche. c7d9e5d.jpg

This will plug into the factory plugs and then have lead wires of the same or similar colors and a wiring schematic to use.
It can also be found online at www.scosche.com/products/productID/226
If you are missing the factory wiring plugs you can also order these online, Walmart doesn't usually carry the factory wiring harness.
Great company and line of products.
Thanks for your question, Dorrian

Rear door speakers don't work w/ aftermarket radio in 94 suburban


You need to attach the blue wire on the stereo harness to the blue and white wire on the car adapter harness. they installed a small amplifier to power the rear door speakers and unless you connect those two wires then the speakers will not work.
