Hi my precious 2 year old stuffed pennies in my tape deck no problem I thought I never use the darn thing that was until mu unit started smoking! I got the smoking to stop and the screen said CALL. My husband tried to take the pennies out on the right side of the deck then the left side started smoking and he actually saw fire! He unplugged the unit and took out the fuses now I have no radio. Is it cheaper to fix or just buy a unit?

Re: 2000 Ford Windstar car stereo smoking
Unless your car is a collectable or very very expensive, in my opinion, I would buy a new unit. The cost of sending the factory one in and just getting them to check it over isn't worth it. You could probably pick one up from ebay or your local scrap yard. Wether you buy another factory unit or an aftermarket unit, is up to you. Good luck.

This wire is for dimming of the display on your radio from your instrument panel in your vehicle. If your original wire harness in your vehicle does not have this wire, just tape it off and dont worry about it.
Yes there is an adapter. It will help you from getting a big headache. The wires will match from the stereo to the adapter and all that will have to be done is use an installation bracket. Plug and play. Trust me spend the approx. extra $40 dollars for the installlation kit and installation harness. Both can usually be bought at an autoparts store or even wal-mart.
hi i recently bought a lexus ls400 and it the trunk it has a ten disc cd changer by the steering wheel in the car is this little black box that keeps reading E-99 evertime i press play on this odd little box that is the control device to make the cd's play i've put the cd 's in the changer upside down right side up testing it and still the little black cd player play button/disc change button keeps saying E-99 my question is, is it a fuse or is this cd player thing near the stearing wheel just a peiece of garbage please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any idea why this is doing this because i can't play any cd's theres no cd player where the cd/tape decks usually are in cars in the middle above the column shift. it would mean the world to me if you could help me out with any information as to why this brand new sony ten disc cd changer is giving issues to the cd player thing next to the stearing wheel on the right it's kind of hidden but it just won't stop saying e-99 no matter how brand new a cd i put in the changer thank you your friend john bunce
the difference between constant and switched 12V is the constant is usually for the clock and memory. it draws precious little current. the switched would be for the radio and amp once the car is turned on. You can use tape but either a wire nut (not the pink ones) or a crimp on cap would be better than using tape.
In case u have`nt solved your problem yet, i had a radio i could`nt use for 3 long years then i found these codes on a web site, the very last number unlocked mine:Try each one:
4316-2152-4513-4362-1156-1165-2145-3451-6361-5624-5241-3346-4524-5436 & my favourite- 3241
