Most Ford models uses the below wiring scheme for their radio equipment. Pls verify the colors and their connections using a DVM.

Green/Yellow - always on B+12VDC (positive battery terminal)
Yellow/Black - switchable +12 (ACC terminal of your IGN switch)
Black/Light Green - chassis ground
Orange/Blue - remote trigger on for power antenna or external amplifier(s)
Light Blue/Red - park light

Orange/Light Green LF+
Light Blue/White LF-
White/Light Green RF+
Dark Green/Red RF -

Pink/Light Green LR+
Dark Blue/Orange LR-
Pink/Light Blue RR+
Light Brown/Red RR-
(R-right, L-left, F-front,RR-right rear)

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

No sound output in 2000 BMW 328i 4dr Sedan but radio functions properly?

Hi Toxey.

Does your trunk amplifier got power.
basically amp need remote power input it is coming from your radio.
please check when you turn on the radio remote power must turn on.
if no it is radio problem or wire is damaged itself.
please check the outputs,speakers with multimeter or single 1.5v cell.
if power is ok.and the remote on signal is ok your device still not working , it is the problem with power amplifier unit.

please check and let us know the status.

I have a 1993 Ford Taurus and my radio is getting broken reception. I'm not sure if its wiring or a fuse or what?

You know it isn't the fuse, that is common sense

A fuse is no more than a piece of wire to complete a circuit

The wiring wouldn't be mishandled without you knowing that

I would go with needing a new antenna or possibly having the radio checked out

How do you hook a pioneer cd player up to a 1991 ford taurus gl sedan

You can go to Walmart or Best Buy and buy an adapter so the new stereo will fit, and they also sell an adapter to hook your pioneer wires up to a plug that just plugs in to your original stereo wiring.

PLEASE RATE by checking one of the four thumbs ups!

I just reassembled my truck dash after installing a new heater core and now my stero speakers do not work, there is power to the actuall stero though. what is the problem.

From what you say I would check to be sure the factory stereo speaker plugs are plugged in tightly and deeply into the radio or radio harness. If you check this and still have no sound find the speaker wires at the radio and try to put an after marker speaker on the wire. There are two wires from the radio to each speaker so be sure you get the right ones. Let me know how this goes.
