You need to get a BTL converts your radio into rca jacks so you can control the power of radio and amplifier.

I have a 1996 ford explorer we installed a new radio the power works but no sound


Hello my name is Israel and I will try to help. In the set of wires from the vehicle there should be a blue wire that need to be connected. Blue wire should be connected to a switch positive 12 volt. This will turn on the vehicle amplifier. Good Luck.

Grey cable in dash


Hi again,

Appreciate the update and additional information. If I understand it right, your vehicle then has two connectors at the back: 1 big black/red/gray plug:
  • Yellow/light Green - always ON B+12;
  • Yellow/Black stripe - ACC B+12 goes to the IGN switch;
  • Black - chassis/ground;
  • Blue - remote trigger for add-on amplifier (if connected);
  • Blue/Red stripe - illumination (can go to parklight switch).
and the 2nd smaller gray 8pin plug:
  • White/Red Stripe Right Front +
  • Brown right front -
  • Green Left Front +
  • White/Orange Stripe Left Front -
  • Light Blue/Black Stripe Left Rear +
  • Yellow Left Rear -
  • White/Blue Stripe Right Rear +
  • Light Blue Right Rear -
Cheers.
