My one speaker had no sound at all (drivers-side front spkr) turns out the speaker actually blew out. First check audio settings Bal + Fade. Second check the wiring in the back of the head unit and make sure all wires are secure. Third, check the wiring on the back of the speaker. Hope this helps!

Are you sure you wired up the head unit correctly? It is fairly uncommon for a audio output amplifier to blow out leaving 3 working speakers and 1 not working. So more than likely it is bad wiring or a blown speaker. Best bet would be get a digital multimeter and ohm out the speaker and see if it has continuity and is the same as the adjacent speaker. You could also try swapping the left/right channel wiring and see if the front right speaker stops working when connected to the left speaker output or vice versa.

Cd playes no sound


You may have your speakers wires shorting out somewhere. Try to isolate each channel till you find the one that is shorted out. It is all a case of trial and error. As long as you do not remove the power wire or the constant wire then you can troubleshoot your speaker without causing any harm. Usually there is factory sticker on the underside that says what speakers are which and what channel they are (left front, left rear and so on. Let me know if this helps if not there are more things you can try

What color wires go where


To find out what your factory wires on your vehicle are, go to installer.com then click on the tab, cables and wires, select your vehicle.
What I do is go to walmart, kmart, target or similar, and get the $5 connector.. It wires to cd player and just plugs into the factory plugins.

Cd player wiring-

Yellow - Direct 12 volt power from battery - keeps memory and channel presets
Red - Wire from ignition to turn on
Black - Ground wire - best to attach to unpainted body metal
Orange - Dimmer - Not used
Blue - Not used unless you have power/electric antenna
Blue with white stripe - Not used unless running an amplifier, then it attaches to rem on amp
Gray - Right Front Positive
Gray/Black Right Front Negative
Purple - Right Rear Positive
Purple/Black - Right Rear Negative
White - Left Front Positive
White/Black - Left Front Negative
Green - Left Rear Positive
Green/Black - Left Rear Negative

It sounds like they messed up your installation. You can confirm their work by verifying that each wire was attached properly.

Right Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Dark Blue
Right Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Light Blue

Click on this link for a PDF of the installation instructions of the radio (If you don't have the installation guide that came with the radio).

Illumination is the grey wire from the car to the orange with white stripe from the radio.

I suspect that the yellow wire from the car is not connected properly. When the orange wire (constant power from the car) is attached, but not the yellow wire you can insert and eject cds, but it will not turn on. Constant power is used for maintaining the clock and preset radio stations.

If everything looks correct, I would take your car back to the installer and have them correct the issue.

As we agreed in chat - you are going to run your 4 channel amplifier as follows...

Front Channels of amplifier will run left and right independently.
Wire up the left speakers in parallel all + together and all - together.
This will yield a 2 Ohm load.

To the Same with the Right Side speakers - on the FRONT Right channel of the amplifier.

Now you have a 2ohm stereo load on the FRONT channels of your amplifier.

And using the BRIDGED nomenclature on the REAR channels of your amplifier - wire up your 4ohm sub mono.

Here is a crude drawing for a visual

Volume fade


Check to be sure there are no speaker wires touching ground, and that the wires are connected in phase to the head unit.
Front Speakers 5 1/4" Doors Left Front (+) Green Left Front (-) Black/White Right Front (+) White/Red Right Front (-) Black/White Rear Speakers 6" x 9" Rear Deck Left Rear (+) Pink/Red Left Rear (-) Pink/Blue Right Rear (+) Pink/Light Blue Right Rear (-) Green/Red

The symptoms you are relaying definately sound like an internal amplifier problem. It is fading in and out for a reason - usually due to heat.

Have you had the radio bench tested (seperate from the car) to eliminate the car as being the culprit?

Since the radio was run with damaged speakers originally, the output or amplifier power supply on the amplifier may be bad.

As an alternative to repairing, I would suggest investing in a small 2 channel amplifier to power the speakers.

The radios claim 50W per channel, but in reality give 12-15W RMS power.

A dedicated amplifier with built in crossovers and gain adjustments will prolong the life of your speakers and add to the tonal qualities of your new speakers. Instead of turning up the volume on the head Unit, and sending out a distorted signal that will blow your speakers, an amplifier will give more CLEAN power to them, so it will be louder at a lower volume setting.

This will bypass the internal amplifier on the radio, and send a Low Level signal ONLY thru a set of RCA cables.

Good Luck!!

Connecting my cd stereo to 1990 Ford Taurus


since it worked before and you didnt change anything and now there is no power it looks like you blew a fuse when connecting wires. check the radio fuse on the door panel, and check the int. lighting fuse under the hood of the car. take both out and see if they are blown, if blown buy new fuses and replace.


heres the wiring diagram for a 1990 Ford Taurus:

Left Front (+) orange/lt green
Left Front (-) lt blue/white or Blk
Left Rear (+) pink/lt green
Left Rear (-) dk blue/ orange or Blk/Wht
Right Front (+) Wht/Lt green
Right Front (-) Dk green/ orange
Right Rear (+) pink/Lt blue
Right Rear (-) Tan/White
Lt green/yellow Hot at all times
Black - Ground
Yellow/Blk - Ignition
Lt blue/red - Acc
Orange/blk - Dimmer Lights
RED - Lights

No sound comes out of the left pre outs


It sounds like the preamp wire that carries the left channel signal between the HU and the 2ch amp has an issue. Here's two quick things to check.
  1. Check that both ends of the left preamp cable between the deck and 2ch amp is not loose or disconnected.
  2. Swap the left and right preamp connections at the amp. If the issue stays with the left channel, the issue is with the amp. If the issue moves to the right channel, the issue is with the preamp cable or the HU's preamp output.
Let me know what you find out!
