  • You did not list the model of Ford Sedan you are inquiring about. Here is a link that has quite a lot or car stereo wiring diagrams http://www.modifiedlife.com/request-a-ford-car-radio-stereo-wiring-diagram/ Look at the upper right of the page and scroll down a little bit as I have it on Ford vehicles already. Find the make and go to the year.
  • That being said if I can make a suggestion. I have hooked up hundreds of car stereos in my life. When I pull a factory radio I don't use the same wires that powered that factory stereo to power the after market stereos, DVD players etc. I go into the dash and find suitable wires a little thicker gauge to handle to often more powerful output of the aftermarket stereos.

Should i replace radio/cd player with factoy radio/cd player or after market radio/cd player


this is a matter of choice, but if you get an after market one it will most likely have to wired in by a radio installer as the plugs will no match up.......hope this helps......cheers.

What is the color code for a 94 ford bronco xlt raido? I bought an after market cd player to replace my factory ''tape'' player. I'm not getting enough power from my red wire so I thought it's probably in...


run any power wires directly to a post on the fuse block. yellow or orange needs power all the time even with the key off for the memory. the red wire should be on a switched terminal. THe factory radio wires have many other things that may come off them that may effect performance. You can buy a fuse tap at the same location you got the harness, if you need more help just post back, I will watch for any questions.

Radio wiring different than everywhere on the web says it is.


the power amp is usually under the back seat.your stereo sounds like the 2000 premium model.take the radio out and go to ford and they will match it up to get you the right info for an aftermarket harness.the ford service manual has the pin out,and you can wire it all from that data.

Installing a new car radio


if you have a wiring harness al the wires are color coded to match the after market radios colors. the yellow constant wire goes to 12 volt or battery wire. the accessory wire would be the red wire that is the switched 12 volts. the remote is for the factory amp or an aftermarket amp which turns on and off it would be the blue with white wire.
