Connecting my cd stereo to 1990 Ford Taurus

I am trying to install my durabrand db 1200 cd player into my 1990 ford taurus and it is not working. At first it turned on and played the cd but no sound came out. Now it wont power on at all. Not sure where the wires go because my stereo has more wires (2 violet, 2 green, 2 white 2 gray, etc) compared to my ford. Any suggestions?

Since it worked before and you didnt change anything and now there is no power it looks like you blew a fuse when connecting wires. check the radio fuse on the door panel, and check the int. lighting fuse under the hood of the car. take both out and see if they are blown, if blown buy new fuses and replace.


heres the wiring diagram for a 1990 Ford Taurus:

Left Front (+) orange/lt green
Left Front (-) lt blue/white or Blk
Left Rear (+) pink/lt green
Left Rear (-) dk blue/ orange or Blk/Wht
Right Front (+) Wht/Lt green
Right Front (-) Dk green/ orange
Right Rear (+) pink/Lt blue
Right Rear (-) Tan/White
Lt green/yellow Hot at all times
Black - Ground
Yellow/Blk - Ignition
Lt blue/red - Acc
Orange/blk - Dimmer Lights
RED - Lights

    also.. as for when it did work no sound came out, make sure you hooked up the blue antenna power/amp wire to factory wiring. and also make sure all speakers are properly grounded, and that the negatives/positive wiring is not criss-crossed.

Which wires do u connect from a kdc-x396 kenwood stereo to a ford taurus


I would buy the wiring harness at Wal-Mart. Don't recommend cutting wires as many new cars have other controls fed through radio connections.

I have a Panasonic CQ-RX400U and I need to hook it up to a 1992 Ford Taurus and I need cables to hook it up and the thing that holds it in place in the dash.


I would get an stereo installation kit from Auto Zone or a local automotive audio store. It will come with the surround for the new stereo to fit where the old stereo went, and a wiring harness to hook the new stereo up to and plug into the existing car wiring.

Hooked up a DURABRAND CD Stereo in my '97 Ford Expedition, because the old factory radio went dead, I got the proper Ford wiring harness for the stereo and proper mount. Every thing is getting power and...


because you have a built in factory amplifier that has to be bypassed. another option is to buy the kit that they make so you can USE your factory amplifier.
