  15. Kimberly, first double check ALL your automotive fuses and make sure ALL your fuses are good. You can do this by using an Automotive Fuse Tester and making sure all of your fuses are not blown. If all of your fuses are good, your 1993 Ford Explorer may have a factory amp that needs to be turned on by your aftermarket stereo. The car radio amplifier trigger wire has to be wired up to turn on your factory amp to output sound from your speakers. Hope this points you in the right direction. Good luck with your 1993 Ford Explorer radio install.

  16. i had a stereo stolen out of my 93 ford explorer an im trying to put another stereo in it i have power but no sound we have the speakers hooked up like a diagram my mechanic looked up but i need help. the speakers worked b4 the other deck was stolen. please help me i need sound

    i need the stereo wiring diagram for my 2005 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer edition. has the sat ready radio, along with the subwoofer and six disc cd changer and built in dvd player for the back seats. thanx

  19. Julie, yes you can hook up your an amplifier and subwoofer to your stock stereo. You will need some aftermarket electronics to hook up a subwoofer to your 2005 Ford Escape factory stereo. You will need five components:

    1. Car Subwoofer
    2. Car Subwoofer Box to house your car subwoofer.
    3. Car Audio Amplifier that matches your subwoofer power needs and ohm rating.
    4. Car Amplifier Wiring Kit that can handle the power needs of your amplifier.
    5. RCA Line Out Converter to feed an audio signal from your factory radio to your aftermarket amplifier.

    First run all your amplifier power from your car battery to where you plan on mounting your amplifier. Next, run your ground wire from your grounding point to your amplifier. Wire up the RCA Line Out Converter to the rear speaker wires to get a full range audio source. Next, connect one end of your RCA jacks to the Line Out Converter and the other end of the RCA jacks to your amplifier. This will provide an audio signal to your after market amp. Lastly, connect your subwoofer to your after market amplifier using the speaker wire in the amplifier wiring kit. If you’ve never installed car audio before, we advise you to take your car to an experienced mobile audio installer. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2005 Ford Escape amplifier and subwoofer installation.

  20. I have a 2005 Ford Escape XLT, I want to hook up two 10’s and i am having some difficulty figuring out what all i need. My main issue is finding a converter.

  26. Kevin, you will need an automotive auxiliary input adapter. This adapter will allow you to input any mp3 player or portable music player into your factory radio. This is the easiest and most cost effective way to add an audio input into your factory stereo. Here is the adapter you will need:

    Aux Input Adapter for 2007 Ford Escape

  28. I need the radio wiring diagram for a 2001 Ford F150 reg cab. 4×4. I removed the old radio and according to some people they say I have a premium sound system. The radio I removed has 2 seperate plugs on the back. The adapter kit I bought only has one plug that fits the one stock connector. Is there a seperate amp that goes to the second plug and then to the speakers, if so where is it located? Do I need to buy a special adapter?

  29. James, technically you could connect your 2010 Ford Fusion amplifier turn on wire to the accessory switched 12v+ wire. That way your amplifier is on whenever your 2010 Ford Fusion is on and off whenever your 2010 Ford Fusion is off. Run a wire to the steering column and use the violet/green wire in the ignition switch harness. 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 2010 Ford Fusion amplifier install.

  30. I need the factory amp wiring diagram for a 2010 Fusion sport with the Sony audio package. Specifically looking for the factory amp turn on wire to tap for another amp.. thanks.

  32. George, as much as we would like to help you with your Ford Falcon EL, we only have information about United States Domestic Market cars. Good luck with your search.

  33. Which wire do I use for an amplifier remote turn on in a 2000 f250? I don’t have a solid blue wire. If you know a pin # that would work too. Thanks for your help.

  34. Do you have a wiring Diagram for a 2000 F250 with the cd/tape combo head unit? I saw a 2001 but wasn’t sure if it was the same.

  35. Do you have the radio wiring for a 2008 ford escape, if it’s different than the 2007. I wired up a harness from bestbuy and the +12 switched wire connects to nothing on the factory side and doesn’t turn on the stereo.

  36. DJ, use the gray/black wire (Pin #58 in the 104-Pin Plug) located on the rear of the engine on the passenger side. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2002 Ford Explorer navigation system installation.

  37. I’m trying to locate the Speed control wire for my 2002 for explorer. I’m installing a NAV system and I want to use all the features.

  38. Lonny, most late model vehicles do not have inputs to feed an mp3 audio signal to your factory stereo. You would have to install automotive auxiliary input adapter. An automotive auxiliary input adapter will allow you to input any mp3 player or portable music player into your factory radio. This is the easiest and most cost effective to add an audio input into your factory stereo. Here is the adapter you will need:

    Auxiliary Input Adapter for 2006 Ford F350

    If you’ve never installed car audio before, we advise you to take your car to an experienced mobile audio installer. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2006 Ford F350 aux input adapter installation.

  39. I have a 2006 ford F-350 super duty that has the ford six CD changer stereo (stock) in it. I was wondering if there is a place on this stereo to plug an auxiliary I-pod. I noticed on the front of the stereo there is an auxiliary push button. Thanks

  41. I am looking for a car stereo wiring diagram for a 2008 Ford Ranger. Specifically for the front and rear speakers. Thanks!

  42. Kevin, most late model vehicles do not have rca outputs on the factory radio to feed an audio signal to your aftermarket amplifier. You would have to install a line out converter to supply an audio output. Here is the Line-Out Converter you need:

    Scosche 2-Channel Speaker to RCA Line Out Converter

    When splicing in the RCA Line Out Converter, tap your factory rear speaker wires to get a full range audio source. We suggest you invest in some solid wire taps that wont come loose. These wire tap connectors will allow you to tap into wires without cutting and installs in seconds by hand with no crimping or tools required. If you’ve never installed car audio before, we advise you to take your car to an experienced mobile audio installer. Hope this helps. Good luck.

  88. Dwayne, you can simply take a AA battery, connect two wires to each end and then touch the positive side wire and the negative side wire to each speaker terminal. If the speaker cone moves outward, then the positive speaker terminal is the side with the positive side wire. If the speaker cone moves inward then the positive speaker terminal is the negative side wire. When testing for polarity, just tap the terminals. Do not leave your speaker connected to the battery as it may damage it. Hope this helps. Good luck.
