ahh, you were the person who was talking before about this right? I guess you found the amp. Anyway lets face it, its a '97 Ford, you're not going to resell it if its in usable condition. compare the colors of the wires coming into and out of the amp with the wires the stock speakers were connected to as well as the wires coming form the HU. If everything matches up logically, I'd just cut them and reconnect. If the colors are all different, I'd just rewire it...which is what I'd do regardless. Oh, by the way, why didn't you see if it fits already?
yeah i opened it up...i can bearliey put my hand to connect them, but i will try again...one side of the amp connector is square and the bypass is rectangle.. i think i will cut a hole in the plastic to get to the wires and make a cover..
thanks...and yeah i was talking about this befor, lol
well i just came back from the audio store, and the guy looked at my ford amp connectors. he said he never saw anthing like that befor..he told me to rewire all my speakers, or bypass the amp my self. i think i will bypass pass it instead..
i am probly going to have left over wires, do i just tape them up, and take out the fuse?
that whole plastic panel comes off and you'll have easy access to the amp. I had to unbolt a few things, unscrew a few screws and pop out a few plastic clips but it wasn't too bad. You'll need a set of torx wrenches though. 50 is the biggest size used I believe. As for bypassing the amp, that would definately be easier than what I did, but you'll have to figure out the wiring scheme. I didn't really take the time to notice how it was set up because I had no intention of using any of the factory wiring at all and I don't have my car here to look at now. you may have left over wires, i'm not sure, but there is no fuse that I'm aware of. Once you unclip the 2 harnesses from the amp, nothing is connected to it anymore so if there is an internal fuse, you don't need to worry about it.
well i decided to just rewire all the sreakers..i couldnt get through the right front door so i just tried to find the two wires in the trucks main harness and all the others are all new wires going to the deck..it took me about 2 hours to finish everthing..
to take off the panel would of been to hard...i had 4 seat belts to take off,lots of bolts,and some i could not get at.
