How do you hook up a jvc kd-s580 to a 91 ford explorer

Get a wiring plug kit. These are available at any Walmart. They are specific for your vehicle make and not the radio. Radio manufacturers typically use all of the same colors so this should be a matter of matching color to color straight forward. Double check this with yoru radio manufacturer schematic before applying power to the radio.

Here is the wiring diagram for your truck

Wiring Problems

You didn't cut the plastic connectors off the factory wiring, did you? One is gray and one black.... if not, just get to a stereo shop and buy a wiring kit for your car and all colors will match. They're about $10. If you DID..... well..... we have a LOT of work to do....

How to install a panasoinc cq-df903u in 91 integra

The wires for the two harnesses should be color coordinated or at least closely colored. The harness should have come with either a guide that says what is what or the wires themselves have little flags saying what they are. You can use this to match it up with CD Players wires by using the manual from the CD player to know which wire is what.
