I recently bought a sony CD player for my 93 2 door Ford Explorer. I got the wire harness adapter, ect. I installed everything the way the instructions said and while the unit powered up there was no sound.
Long story slightly shorter I figured I would wire the speakers without the adapter and by cutting off the L shaped plug for the wire that was in the dash. Exposing 8 color coded wires and 1 exposed wire.

found this info on the wiring that i found:
Left Front (+) - Green
Left Front (-) - ORANGE / White
Right Front (+) - RED / White
Right Front (-) - Brown
Left Rear (+) - Light Blue/Black
Left Rear (-) - Yellow
Right Rear (+) - WHITE/ Purple
Right Rear (-) - Light Blue
Bare Wire – Amp

I found this in a closed thread here with no resolution.

I wired a blue/White wire from the power harness to the amp wire and the positive speaker wires to the same now powered amp wire and I gives me sound. Only when I tired it the sound was cracked and sputtered and if I turned it up too loud (9 or so on the volume dial of the unit) it would cut out.

I'm a total amateur or less. So any info is appreciated no matter how basic.

Thank You

What you need to find are these. You can get them in the passenger jamb (door opening) They are in there. What your looking for is the speaker side of these wires, NOT the amp side (of course) You need to cut one at a time (one pair) and test with a tone generator, or 9v battery. You will need to make your own harness that will come from the outs of your deck, to the wires you just cut in the jamb. You are making your own amp bypass.

This suggestion is for bypassing the amp. IMHO, better sound that way. Not overdriving the factory amp, and just using deck PWR.posted_image
