I have just removed the original radio cassette player to fit a newer panasonic with wires and no connectors. I have left the car loom as is, and conneceted the wires or so i thought but it keeps blowing the fuse every time i connect the battery can you please help?? (ive made sure there are no touching wires )
Back-up and ONLY connect your red yellow and black wires. Are you still blowing fuses? NO? good... next check your illumination and dimmer wires (the orange and orange/white) if those get mixed up, you will also blow fuses.
IF you blow fuses with only those 3 wires connected, it's likely you have something exposed and touching.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

hello,depending on your particular vehicle,as there are a few different ways to remove the radio fitted as standard,but most are usually removed from the dashboard with a 'radio removal' tool,a specially formed thin hooks that are inserted in to the left and right of the radio through tiny slot's,and pressed outwards to unclip the 'locking' mechanism that prevents unwanted removal.fitting a cd player is quite easy,as you can normally get a standard ISO adapter that will fit in to your car's original wiring plug,and then you just simply plug the other end in to your cd player,but you may have to specify to a local radio stockist of your specific vehicle and year of manufacture,as there are quite a few different adapters available,failing that,an auto electrician can usually fit a car radio in about 15 minutes,often without a wiring diagram,so can be quite cost effective to enlist the work to a specialist.hope that helps, cheers.
Yes, it should slip right in, but I recommend you buy the adapter for the wiring harness. Look here for details and instructions are pasted below: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_130DEH1700/Pioneer-DEH-1700.html?tp=5684
1992-95 Models See Figure 4 Removing the radio will require removal of the front part of the center console. The
original equipment radio has a coded theft protection circuit. Before
beginning removal, be sure to know the code for re-installation. The
code is erased whenever the battery is disconnected or the No. 32 (7.5A)
fuse from the under hood fuse/relay box is removed. When power is
re-connected, the word "CODE" will be displayed and will require entry
of the 5-digit code for that particular unit.
All SRS wire harnesses are covered with a yellow insulation. Read
the SRS precautions found in this section and install the short
connectors as described.
Disable the SRS system as described in this section.
Remove the center instrument panel by removing the four philips screws on the top and sides.
Disconnect the 4-pin connector from the cigarette lighter.
Remove the two screws, then disconnect the 16-pin connector and the antenna lead.
Carefully pull the radio/cassette player out.
Plug in the 16 pin connector and install the two retaining screws.
Plug in the antenna lead, the cigarette lighter and carefully install the unit.
Install the center instrument panel. Re-connect power to the car,
and enter the 5-digit theft protection code for the radio/cassette
hi...well i know this might not be of any help, but you can buy a connector that plugs straight into the ford plug, and then you plug the jvc plug/s into that, not cutting wires no messing up the original connector just incase you want to sell the car with original system in it...
thats the link for it...if you tell me what colours are on the ford plug i could tell you what goes where...thanks
Have you removed the original connector from you original stereo? If you still have the original connector in place you can get a new connector from the Ford dealer that will plug into your existing wiring and into your new deck. Ford connections are unique to Ford and you need to adapt them for this application.
Take the car and deck to the dealer and tell them what you need. Everything just plugs in and your original amp and speakers in the car will work.
Having said that there was an adapter available at Wal Mart of all places that did work. You may want to check there.
If you have removed the original connector then you need a wiring diagram.

The amp is located under the rear passenger side window. You need to remove the plastic side wall to expose it if you need access there. You can trace the wiring if needed.
Under the front bottom edge of the rear seat are clips holding the seat in place. Open the clips and the seat lifts off. You can then get to the amp as needed.
