    Re: Install help!!

    Does your Explorer have a factory amp?
    Perhaps it needs to be bypassed

    Are you running outboard amplifiers?
    Perhaps you hooked the power antenna wire up in place of the remote accessory activation wire (a common mistake as both of them are blue - just one has a white stripe alongside the sheathing and the other doesn't) and when in CD mode it isn't activating your amp(s)?

    Re: Install help!!

    fuse is good. but i pulled the harness back off, and there are a few wires that i didnt have anything to connect to, as follows.

    on the harness i bought that plugs into factory harness i have left..

    black/white wire that says amp ground
    and i had 2 illumination wires. one was solid orange, which i connected to factory illumination, and then i have another orange/black wire that says dimmer on it, but i didnt have anything to connect that one to.

    on the CD player harness..

    P. Ant (solid blue) for motorized antenna that i dont have
    In INT (pink/black) audio interrupt in lead
    blue/white wire that is remote turn on lead

    and thats it


    also, there is a second harness that plugs into my factory head unit that has one yellow, and one grey/black wire that i have no clue what they do, but i dont have a harness for that one.

    Re: Install help!!

    im 80% sure, is there a sure way of finding out? I know i dont have any stock sub, so it would have to be powering my door speakers, but no, im not positive that i dont have one. Im pretty **** sure i dont though. If i did, what would i have to do?

    Re: Install help!!

    If there is one you have to do as Prowler suggested and bypass it OR use it until you install aftermarket amps.

    On that second harness that plugged into the factory head unit that has one yellow, and one grey/black wire...that COULD be power & ground for the factory amp.

    Not too familiar with your vehicle. Are there any Explorer XLT specific forums you can check to see if indeed there is a factory amp hidden somewhere?

    My Old 96 Explorer Eddie Bauer had factory amps, I would be very surprised if yours doesn't. Call up Crutchfield, they're helpful with that stuff.
