Hi,

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

Speakers
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.

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.
