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.

2007 ford taurus air bag light on after replacing stereo


The CD changer option is similar to the single-disc player. The CD changer has the ability to toggle between the stereo and the multi-disc changer. In the 2007 Ford Taurus, the CD changer is located either in the vehicle's trunk or in the center console and has a magazine that can hold up to six CDs.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To make this installation you are going to need a wiring schematic for that vehicle, your local Ford dealer should supply that for you if talk nicely to them and they have not purged that book from their inventory

Have a 2000 Ford Taurus and the tape player is not working. I am thinking about buying a new deck but on bestbuy.com they state many of their products do not "fit" my car. Is there any solutions to this?


There should be one that fits in your console. Try to get the exact dimension of the location where you'll insert the stereo on your console and check available stereo head units you would want to install in your car.

Cannot get CD to eject. It plays, but won't eject.


I am having the same problem with my Ford Escape. Try hitting the load button instead of eject and it may come right out.
