    Hi,...don't understand your question...My point is that if you have an aftermarket alarm, which apparently you do, you'll need to figure out how to RESET your alarm BEFORE you disconnect the battery. Most likely it'll go off/stop the car from starting after reconnecting the battery.TD

A '94 didn't have a stock alarm system that would engage the killswitch. If you/previous owner installed an alarm you should verify how to reset it b4 disconnecting battery.

Stock CD Player won't turn on.

Hi Jesse,

Since you have done this numerous times, so you know the installation process. It seems there's something wrong with the aftermarket CD player, try replacing it with another one.

Fuse box locations

the cd has wires,
if stock the cars FSM covers this.
if not stock CD (stock BTW means, as lift left the factory)
if not stock, CD, then .
A: get brand and pn of this unit,
b: get the manual on line from maker or whomever.
c: now you see which wires are power, follow them.

be aware if the cars radio fuse is good, then the car
has a bad CD or is wired no stock.
some audio gear, have an inline fuse near it, or was added upstream. or has a fuse the GEAR.
those are the steps... if you had told the name of CD gear
and model number, this all is acedemic (easy)

Battery terminal

Run a heavy gauge wire off the starter solenoid,
to a new terminal block you use for any add on
things & leave the battery cables factory stock

Something like an 8 gauge or 10 gauge wire

Do the math on your total amperage, that your adding,
for the wire & fusible link size

Also use a fusible link coming into the new terminal
block to protect all your adding down stream

2003 ford expedition, eddie bauer, cd player has stopped working. I took the cd player out. Can I just replace the cd player instead of replacing the whole radio unit? I can't seem to find anywhere to...

Unfortunately not. The first thing I would try to do is get the cd player fixed by an audio store in your area. If it cannot be fixed, you will have to replace your radio unit. Let me throw this at you. I have invested in a whole new sound system in my vehical. I am not saying that all of your speakers need to be replaced, but an aftermarket stereo unit is more fuctional and stylish than than your stock stereo unit. Hope this helps! Please rate 4 thumbs up!

How hard would it be to put a different cd player in my 2003 Monte Carlo SS ??

It is very simple actually. What you will need is a face plate, an aftermarket wire harness and the skills to connect this wire harness to the new CD player harness, they are usually color coded so very simple. TO remove you stock CD player you will need to pry off the plastic surround then there are 4, 7mm bolts that will need to be taken out and the stock CD player will pull out. Unclip the wire harness and antenna
