Hello my name is Israel and I will try to help. In the set of wires from the vehicle there should be a blue wire that need to be connected. Blue wire should be connected to a switch positive 12 volt. This will turn on the vehicle amplifier. Good Luck.

I am trying to install a ford factory CD/cassette radio ford part number XL2F-18C868-BB in my 1996 Explorer XL. Everything plugs in fine but there is no sound. I've checked the wire harness and everything...


There is a separate plug for the speakers, if you are replacing a non factory radio then maybe these speaker cables were re-routed to an amp. or something?

1996 Ford Explorer factory Radio works but when i install the aftermarket radio no sound comes out from it what do i do ..??


Does it light up? Does it have a mute button? Does it have a mute wire for in vehicle phone systems? If so, it may need to be grounded to take it out of mute, or it may need to go to 12 volts + It depends on how the circuit was designed.

If those check out, or it lights up but no muting make sure the speakers are connected to the correct wires. Also check to make sure the speakers are not grounded. Two wires should go to each speaker. you can check the condition of the speakers with a 9 volt battery touched across the leads, you will hear a pop sound. make sure those two wires for each speaker are connected to the radio correctly.

Radio resets when I start up


Sounds like fuse gone that supplies constant power to radio. It has 2 power wires, (and fuses) one sends power all the time, and the other when key turned on. Check all your fuses.

Installing an aftermarket stereo in 1996 explorer...sound issues.


You may have a factory amplifier in the rear of the explorer in the right cargo panel. You need to supply power to it by connecting the amp power on (Blue/White I think) in the dash to a power source (such as red on your stereo harness) so it comes on with the key. If you do have the amplifier, that's why you have no sound.
