This is actually an easy to fix solution, go down to your local parts store, or even walmart. what your looking for is a aftermarket radio adapter harness, this will allow you to connect your new stereo without having to cut wires or worry about if you got the right one in the right place. hope i could help, and good luck

Factory radio wont work

Make sure the wires for the new radio are color to color when installing it in your vehicle aka the wires behind the CD player. Make sure all of them have connectors not the black tape cause it will melt and could cause a fire.

Radio/cd player went dead. Tried replacing fuses

Do NOT Cut and Splice. Your local parts store sells an aftermarket radio plug in which connects to your factory harness and then you can splice in your radio into the new connectors ends that are labeled for what they go to.

No sound out of speakers, but radio powers on.

Hi, im a retired ford auto elec inst. Tech so ill see if i can help you out. First, the orginal plugs, there are several radios and systems used. Was your oem radio am, am fm, or am fm tape? Next, if you had 2 plug that look similar but has 6 wires and the other has 8. Or does it have 4 wires. I should ask was your oem radio digital or analog? If was old school shaft type you will have a yellow, thats 12v + switched. Blue/red stripe is dial light, and a thick red wire which is ground. If its digital, look for the keyway on the plug. That is the top. First wire will be constant hot. Usually it a light green. Then the yellow, blu/ red, then another dail lightl ground then the power ant/ amp turn on wire. If you have a long plug and a small square one then you have fords premium sound. Which means there is a seperate amp. Lastly, if you have an 8 wire plug thats the speaker plug. If its 5 wire its a common ground system amd you will have to run new speaker wires or your new radio will have issues. Hope that helps
