You will need a harness adapter for your model truck. This you will want to solder and heat shrink over the solder joints (Dont just twist tem together) then just plug it in to the factory harness.
You will probably need an adapter kit also.
The wiring harness adapter should come with the color codes for the wires corresponding to your trucks speaker and power wires pinouts make sure you correctly connect them to the color codes of the stereo for proper speaker placement and voltages
This is usually a bad splice in the driver's side door sill to the VSM ( Vehicle Security Module ) behind the rear seat. The splice for the std cab is closer to the a-pillar and the SuperCab / SuperCrew the splice is closer to the c-pillar
The Std Cab splice location ( Blue w/ White stripe wire )
SuperCab / SuperCrew splice ( purple wire - very close to where the wires run up the c-pillar )
As you can see there are a lot of wires in the door sill, it will take some time to locate the splice. The splice is 1 wire from 1 direction to 2 wires the other direction, and covered in something that looks & feels like hockey stick tape.
you need to get the adapter from best buy for about 20 bucks... then find the correct wire code for you head unit and splice into these wires with the "RCA line out adapter" i will be happy to assist you more if you can provide more detail
Driver's side Stop / Turn : Light green w/ White stripe wire Pass Side Stop / Turn : White w/ Light blue stripe wire
Another option ( for use with the factory trailer circuits ) is to add / replace the factory tow adapter. eTrailer has them, if you are interested. This is the type adapter as Ford p/n: YL3Z-13A576-G. You would need to install the relay and the fuses for the trailer circuits if you do this.
strip off an inch on both ends of the wiring you are trying to connect. Connect each wire with the same color. Example if the 9 pin side wire is yellow/blue then the other end needing to be connected will need to be yellow/blue. Twist them together and use a terminal splicer to fastened and protect them from touching each other. Do this until all wires are spliced together color for color.
You will need the following: A power wire (preferably 4 or 8 gauge) with an inline fuse (typically 50amps) A battery terminal adapter to connect the power wire A signal wire to let the amp know when the stereo is on RCA audio cables to connect the amplifier to your stereo A ground wire for the amplifier (again 4 or 8 gauge preferred)
Walmart sells a Scosche kit that has all of the wiring as well as a basic diagram for about $25, but it does not include the battery terminal adapter.
If you have a factory stereo you won't have RCA ouputs, so you will need a line level converter. A basic one like the Scosche SLC4 usually runs in the $20 range. You splice into your speaker wires and run them into the unit, then plug the RCAs into it.
if there is no amplifier separate from the radio - the blue /white wire from the back of the radio goes to the solid blue wire on the harness attached to the car's plug. the orange wire is not supported by the kenwood radio, so make sure you tape it well- if your not using a separate amp also tape up the blue/white wire coming off the harness you have coming out of the harness to the car. if this helps you please give me a good rating- if not please e-mail me at [email protected] respectfully M.

red= accessories power on
yellow= power always on memmory
blue white= amp switch this goes to amp
blue= power antenna
the other wires are speaker wires top is for the fronts
the bottom set is for the back speakers this is simple
suggestion if you dont know the wire hook up i suggest taken the wires and sterio to certified car sterio installer pay 5 bucks and have them splice the wires together for you so you dont screw up your vehicle wireing or your sterio this is crucial
