2000 Ford Windstar car stereo smoking

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?

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.

Orange wire from car harness to stereo illumination where does it go????


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.

I just got a new pioneer cd player...was wondering if anyone knew how to install it into my 2001explorer sport...i know how to get out the old tape deck, but not sure how to connect the wires....


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.

Wiring Pioneer DEH-225 to 1996 Kia Sportage


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.

I'm not too sure, but I thought Crutchfield might carry these?
Ebay might help too.
