Hi, I recently purchased a new Stereo deck and I like to remove the old Alpine CDE-7827 deck. My car is a 1995 Ford Thunderbird.


The original wires in the 95' thunderbirds are a pain, trying to figure out how to take out factory stereo and replace with aftermarket Sony cd player, have no clue because the wires don't match up, some do and they will load and unload discs but won't power up any suggestions...?!?

Replacing radio with an after market cd player in a 1999 ford au sedan jjust need to know what color wires what on the car


  • You did not list the model of Ford Sedan you are inquiring about. Here is a link that has quite a lot or car stereo wiring diagrams http://www.modifiedlife.com/request-a-ford-car-radio-stereo-wiring-diagram/ Look at the upper right of the page and scroll down a little bit as I have it on Ford vehicles already. Find the make and go to the year.
  • That being said if I can make a suggestion. I have hooked up hundreds of car stereos in my life. When I pull a factory radio I don't use the same wires that powered that factory stereo to power the after market stereos, DVD players etc. I go into the dash and find suitable wires a little thicker gauge to handle to often more powerful output of the aftermarket stereos.

Regards, Tony

I have c-class 200K 2001, classic, i would to change radio to new one to have DVD/MP3/GPS and bluetooth ....what i have to do


its not to hard if you have basic skills or better you must remove the old stereo from car which can mean certain parts of the dash will have to come out usually the surround around the stereo you may also need a special tool to get the old stereo out of the dash then you will have to find a wire diagram off the factory stereo so you can wire the factory speakers up to your head unit also you will need to mount the new stereo to the dash which is simple a mount frame should be in the new head unit box

Hi there,

You'll need to determine which of these connectors match yours, then follow the appropriate diagrams:

Stereo wont hold memory


Look for a second power wire that needs to be hooked up. There is one wire that is switched (runs from the ignition) and another that is direct from the battery. You can test for this with a light or a meter. Typically the always hot wire will include an in-line fuse to prevent fires in the event of a short... Hope this helps...;-)

2005 town and country factory stereo removal


It's actually not too hard when you figure everything out. I just installed an aftermarket stereo and couldn't get any sound until I stumbled across a solution on this site. First you need to get the correct wire harness which I bought on ebay for $1.99. Then you need to get the install kit. I got mine at Radio Shack for $10.00 cause they're going out of business. You can get it at Best Buy too or any other car stereo place. To get the old stereo out. Take out the cup holder. There is a button on the top rear of it that releases it. Then remove the 2 screws at the bottom. Gently pull the entire trim that surrounds the stereo, cd changer and ac controls. You will now have access to removing the stereo. It's very easy after that. After you connect the wire harness and install the new stereo you need to run a wire from the red ACC wire on the stereo to the NBS relay in the fuse box under the hood. That's it! Good luck. Sorry I have no pictures.

Stereo


if you have not cut the factory connectors off of the car, go to any store that sells radios and buy the connection plugs, they are about $10. the packages list what car each one is for.

If you have cut them, get back to me and i will give you the wiring specs.
