Has tape deck on top and cd deck on bottom (factory). I've found that after replacing the factory tape deck with an aftermarket cd player, the sound system will not work unless the factory cd player is plugged in.
I want to remove this player! How do i do this?

I know how to take it out but in terms of wiring. I have a harnes hooked up from the tape deck wiring to the new cd player but when i unplug the Factory cd player wiring the whole thing doesnt work. The harnes doesnt have an option to include the Fac cd player wiring in it.
Ninja Flex I think I know what your problem was...your aftermarket deck doesn't have the blue wire (remote) to turn on the factory amplifier in the car. Or am I wrong? Did you even put in the aftermarket deck yet? Does the power come on but the speakers don't work?
Go to best buy. They will have everything that you need..
This is where I got my harness too just make sure you get the right one they have two different kinds but you can tell which is the right one by the stock harness in the mustang. Ninjaflex I'm not sure I just pulled out the cd player and it was always working. By the way my mustang has the premium sound system with four speakers...Not sure what you have...my cousin has the mach stereo system in his 1999 mustang cobra with his aftermarket deck but he still has the cd player there so maybe he had the same problem as you.
