Stock radio wiring harness...questions on wire colors
you got further than I did. I have 2000GT with the MACH sound system all original stock. the cd player died recently - amazing it lasted almost 10 years. now I would like to replace it with anything that works. preferably same stock player but I can't figure out how to get it out!?!? I can't find anything in the front or see much under behind that holds it in. argh! my old classic 'stangs were so easy to work on.
you need to go to the autoparts store and buy a scosche fdo2b or metra 70-1770 hrns and it will plug into your factory hrns and have the same wire colors as the new deck you are installing. All you would need to do is connect yellow to yellow, red to red, ect and then plug it in. I have never found a reliable color code for fords radios as they had too many changes and adjustments made from year to year, and sometimes carried over. So if you have a early production 98 car, you might have late production 97 wiring so even if you find a color code you think works I HIGHLY recomend you test EVERY wire before you turn your deck on..........
I HAVE A 2000 V6 STAN, would it still be the same? im trying to install a boss digital reciever, got feed up with the wrong color code, and took it to best buy geek squad, and long story... the new one just doesnt turn on,
