  1. Bo, technically you could connect your 2008 Ford Ranger amplifier turn on wire to the radio switched 12v+ wire. That way your amplifier is on whenever your 2008 Ford Ranger is on and off whenever your 2008 Ford Ranger is off. Just make sure to run an in-line fuse holder with a 1-amp fuse on the amplifier turn on wire. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2008 Ford Ranger amplifier install.

  2. i was hoping u can tell me what wire i splice into on a stock headunit for the remote wire on an amp in a 2009 ford ranger? thank you

  3. Desslar, as much as we would like to help you with your 2008 Ford Ranger XLT, we only have information about United States Domestic Market cars. Good luck with your search.

  4. I want to thank you all at ModifiedLife for supplying the 2008 Ford Ranger Wiring diagram. The factory radio that my Ranger came with was too simple with only AM/FM capability. I can now upgrade it with a better stereo system that plays CD and MP3.

  5. James, use the brown/yellow wire in the harness located under the driver door sill for the reverse lights. Also, use the violet/orange wire at the PCM module on the passenger side of the firewall under the hood. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2008 Ford Ranger navigation installation.

  6. Can you please tell me where I can find the VSS wire and the reverse light wire near the dash of my 2008 Ford Ranger? I am installing a navigation system and it is asking for these wires. Thank you.

  7. Desslar, unfortunately we only feature wiring diagrams for United States Domestic Market vehicles. Good luck on your 2007 Ford Ranger XLT radio wiring diagram search.
