I've recently purchased a JBL MS-8 "System Integration Digital Sound Processor" and have been searching for the stereo wiring diagram for my 2015 Ford Expedition EL with no luck.

The local stereo shop wants anywhere from $500 to $1000 just to install this unit that requires only pwr, rmt, gnd, high level in & hi level out connections... ridiculous! I have many years’ experience installing 12V products and am certain I can conquer this task but acquiring the factory amp locations and stereo wiring color codes are a must before I start tearing this vehicle apart.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Do have the wiring color codes for factory amp input plug? I need to tie these input wires into the high level input on my JBL MS-8. Your output color codes were spot on!
Thanks.

Chances are the level coming out of the radio will not be enough to drive your amplifier. You will probably need to get signal from the output.
