  2. wanting to go back to premium sound radio stock any help avaialble please
     
  3. I don't think you are amplified if you do it that way...

  5. Nice job rooster I have a couple of your radio's . One in my Olds and another in my older daughter's Buick . Still have them and they work . Thumbs up to ya .
     
  6. casettes and cd's... whats them?
     
  7. I guess it's worth asking.. You willing to share how you add your aux input to the radio? Or is that a trade secret that's part of your ebay business? That's cool if it is since, you figured it out, but since many on here are DIY types I'm sure I'm not the only one interested in knowing what needs to be connected where?
     
  8. I get that question a lot and believe a bunch of people could handle the install of an input if I told them but I cant give that info away.It does have much to do with my business of selling the radios.the other part is the multiple questions that would be asked or people even ruining their radios because it can go south pretty fast when you start soldering on the circuit board.i have dealt with all kind of problems in the past 5 years of doing this and was self taught.i appreciate the question and hope to help you out in anything else,thanks.

    Not sure what you mean by that. Anyway, i gave up on that project. I just kept the factory 93 radio conversion on my 88 fox. I am now thinking about using a more modern oem radio (like the one in my 08 fusion) but it won't be for a long time. When I do, ill make a new thread.
     
  10. My radio won't kick on at all. I have a 1993 with premium sound. Checked the fuses under the dash and they are all okay including 17. No lights and no sound. Car and radio only have 30k miles so I really want to keep it.

    I read the opening page and noticed that I don't have the "shorting plug" to go in the top slot seeing as I don't have the CD player version.

    Is there an internal fuse?

    What would be my next step for trouble shooting it?
     
  11. Verify that you have power to the radio and to the amp by pulling them out, and checking for 12V on some of the wiring laid out in diagrams on previous pages.

    It is possible the radio is shorted out as well
     
  12. So I pulled the radio and put it back in. This morning I started the car and to my surprise the radio turned on... This last about 1 minute before it turned off...
     
  13. Radio is getting good power and verified the ground on the harness itself is good too. Leaning to the radio itself being bad.
