Wire Harness for 1996 Ford Taurus

I am looking for a Wire Harness for a 1996 Ford Taurus. The problem I am having is: everywhere I go, they have the wrong harness for my car. They have these flat and long harnesses. Mine has 2 small ones. One is 16 pin and the other is 8 pin. Can anyone help my to find a wire harness for my car so I can finish my radio instillation? I thank you for your help.

The harness you ar looking for is on the website metraoline.com you can get the harness number there ....ford taurus you may have to run wires on the drivers side becouse the amplifier is in the rear the face of the radio is just a controler so you will not be able got get speaker wires at the front of the car ...

The wires in my 1993 ford taurus have different color wires than my new radio


I would get a wiring harness adapter for your car. You can wire your stereo to the harness and then plug it into the car's exsisting plug.

You need to hook up the yellow wire from JVC to the yellow/green wire in car(12+ constant memory) and the red wire from JVC to purple from car(switched 12+ volt accessory)

Hope this gets you tuned in!

ok here is what you need to install>>>>you will need an install kit which is for the after market stereo to fit in the space your factory one was in also you will need the WIRE HARNESS for that year and model of vehicle...sometimes when you buy the insatll kit it will come with one....once you get that all you have to do is remove the stock radio and then wire the wires from harness to your wires on aftermarket radio and just plug the harness into the black picece behind dash

Radio does not come on


There are a few things you may need to check:

1.Make sure you have 12v to the yellow wire on the harness with a good ground at the black wire, and the red wire should be your ignition switched acc wire.

2.Make sure your fuse under the radios wire harness connector is good.

If all of that is in order hook it up, turn the key on and hit the on/off button on the cd player, most aftermarket radios require you to manually turn them on the first time, and anytime the battery is disconnected. If is still doesn't work the unit is more than likely bad.

Having trouble installing my Pyle PLDBT30U


your part number is Metra 70-5520
It is a standard Ford plug, but is used on your car as well.
Only 1 plug is necessary

i dont think this model has a premium sound upgrade.... could it be a changer cable?
