    yes, those colors are EIA color codes. i am very familiar with those colors, but the problem is the original factory plug in that was hooked up to the factory wires was cut off so now i'm dealing with trying to wire a new reverse oem harness with EIA colors to the cut off harness which has crazy colors like pink/green, orange/black, blue/wite, yellow/black, green/yellow. so its pretty much become a guessing game. what would help is if i could have the the color diagram for the stereo wires for this particular van- 1992 ford club wagon. ive been looking all over google and everywhere trying to find one. the closest i could get was i found a wiring diagram for 96 and up. i think the constant was like green with yellow stripe and the ignition was yellow with black stripe and ground was easy it was just black i dont remember all the speaker colors but if i could find this dam diagram i'd be good to go haha

    So the 92 ford probe should have the same wiring as the 92 ford club wagon?

    Yes it should. Since I'm practically not having that vehicle with me thats why you have to check it out and let me know. In case you find difficulty connecting kindly let me know which particular color code you are having trouble with.

Never Cut The Stock Harness.

The best advise I can give and the worst mistake you can make while trying to install a new head unit into a car is DO NOT CUT THE STOCK HARNESS.

New head units come with bare harness with just wire ends, so you may think you need to cut off the harness on the car to wire it in.

This is the worst thing you can do. As a matter of fact, it is a bad Idea to cut any harness for anything in your car as they make wiring harness adapters to fit every thing in your car.

Before you install your head unit, go to Best Buy, or any car audio place, or on the internet and get a harness to suit the install. For instance if you have a pioneer head unit, and a 2007 Honda, you want a pioneer to 07 Honda wiring harness. This will allow your head unit to connect right into the stock wiring harness.

The same can be done for the speakers as well.

No running or dash lights on 97 e350 ford van.replace switch and fuse..fuse blows out after a minute and when you turn lights on engine idle decreases

Most likely a short in the front fender parking lights (look for a rubbing wiring harness) or in the tail lights (damaged wiring harness along frame), if the vehicle is in the north, this is more frequent as ice and snow and mud mess up wiring especially heavy salted areas.

Apparently, you have no power at the 12 volt battery/memory wire at the radio harness of the vehicle. This wire is white with blue in color.
Also, based upon your description, you have connected the battery/memory wire and the accessory wire of the radio to the 12 volt accessory (switched) wire of the vehicle. This wire is white with red in color.
Check the radio/ stereo fuse of the car. You may have blown the fuse during your installation.
You have no memory at the radio because when you turn off the key, you lose all power to the radio.
Also, I mentioned the wire colors just in case you used an aftermarket radio wiring harness. Make sure that the yellow from the Pioneer unit is going to the battery power source and, the red of the Pioneer is going to the switched power source.

Have you tested the hot lead going from the car's harness to the radio with a multimeter, to see if you're getting voltage? You may have either popped the fuse in the fuse box, or may have shorted either the car harness or the head unit harness.

More than likely your van is just missing the required fuses and relays. In the fuse panel in the engine compartment there should be a 20amp fuse in location F48, a 20amp fuse in location F57, a 15amp fuse in location F58,and a 30amp fuse in location F63. There are also 4 relays required. 2 rectangular 5 pin(Part#F5TZ-14N089-B) and 2 small square 4 pin(Part#5L3Z-14N089-AA). Unfortunately these are not given locations so I will try and give you an idea of where they go. The 1st 4 pin goes above fuse F53 and the 2nd goes above fuse F56. The 1st 5 pin goes above fuse F17 and the 2nd goes above fuse F21. If you have the owners manual these will be easy to find or a diagram may be stamped into the fuse box cover. Also some vehicles come with all the required fuses and relays and instructions in the glove box for adding trailer tow. I'm not sure if an E350 is one though.
