Ok that was not helpful at all..
Besides somone saying re-run all the wiring..
that prob the best info... but seriously couldnt be f**k running all new wires..
Will look around for a wiring loom that connects straight into the ford... like an ISO adaptor...

you only have to run three wires Power, earth and ignition. you could splice into the factory speaker wires and hey presto its done then all you need is an plastic pocket for the cd player to slot into.

Power would go from the battery to the Headunit

Earth would go to an earthing point

Ignition would go to the ciggarette lighter or somthing else that turns on with the ignition.


It's not really that hard

fail safe alternative...


run new speaker wires from the headunit to the speakers. probably cost about $50 in speaker wire.
and if i was you upgrade the speakers while they are out...

If you can't work out whats what and how to do it from the two links, take it to someone that can.
The speaker wire colours posted in the link are correct.
Don't act like a a*** to the people trying to help you.

Well i worked it out.. i used my own knowledge to check everything.. i found out where the wires are... an it is easier to rerun all the cabling.. i appreciate everyones input..
Yes the colours are right.. i checked everything out..
THANKZ ALL for your input to my question...
it looks heaps hard to just wire it into the existin ones.. so will be re-runnning it all.. bigger better an thicker wire :) so all is SWEET :)
