95 ford probe wiring harness. no sound but turns on

My probe has a premium sound system with the square part on the harness
at first when i had my friend hook it up it played out sound and everything but then when he went to put in subs at a different time when he turned on the car the sound didn't work for some reason. Then I had a guy who works with cars for a living rehook it up with that stereo and his pioneer that he knew worked but still no sound. I've went to best buy 2 times now to figure out whats wrong and they told me to hook up the blue wires with the red and white. If you know of anything to try let me know.
and it's not the speaker because when you hook up the stock the sound comes out.

Hey I cant help you with your problem but can you help me? i have a 95 ford probe with a metal ended square harness on it, i went to canadian tire 100 times looking for the right harness and none fit it. a couple months later I had found another harness connector a few inches don't from the other square one.Now before i found that one i cut the harness and tried manually connecting them to the new radio. The radio would turn on but now sound would play.... and i tired 9 colour codes still nothing. if you have any idea about my problem it would be much appreciated thanks.

    Okay the problem is that you probably have a factory amp , or a premium sound system from the ford factory. because of this the amplifier located either behind the passenger rear speaker or under the passenger seat you are unable to hear sound due to the amplifier. what you have to do is find the amplifier and buy a connecter for the wiring harness. the amplifier has to outputs and you can get a small adapter for it for like 10$ and wa la you should have sound. I hope this helps ;)

I hooked up all wires for my kenwood kdc-x911 and the deck turns on but no sound

What kind of vehicle do you have, your vehicle could have premium sound, which would require a wire harness for premium sound. If that doesnt fix it then, Its probably the sound channels, your front and rear channels could be blown, or your speakers could be fried. Really in order for me to answer your question properly im gonna need more information then that lol.

Aftermarket stereo turns on but can't hear anything 1997 explorer

Did the truck have the premium sound system? If so, you will need to connect the blue remote wire to the blue remote wire on the harness. You may also need a special harness to bypass the factory amplifier.

Pioneer dehp3100ub.stock speakers wont work with unit?

If the vehicle has a premium sound package - you need to use the remote wire to turn on the factiry amplifier.
If you want to use the power from the radio for the speakers, you must buy and install a factory amplifier bypass harness.

Wiring for stereo in 94 ford explorer

Sounds like you have the Premium Sound system. The main power plug is long and probably black, the other plug is square with a grey round cord coming out correct?

You can either take your power harness back and get the correct one ( a little more expensive) or run ALL 4 sets of speaker wires back to the right rear quarter panel. That is were the OEM amp is mounted and taking that panel out requires you to remove the top and bottom tailgate trims, a dozen screws, the seat belt D-ring and 4-5 plastic push clips that will probably snap off...:( Also, this will not make the OEM subwoofer work.

From 20 years experiance in this biz, save the time, spend the extra 30$ or so and just buy the correct connector. Check and search there.
