1995 GT Aftermarket Radio

I bought a1995 GT that looks like it had the premium sound systems it, as there's an amp beneath the radio. There are two connectors, one is black and square. The previous owner put an after market stereo in using adapter harnesses. The problem is, the color coding and the number of wires to the radio don't match up. I'm about to cut the harness out and hard wire. Can anyone help me with this?

Jim

Its been awhile since I worked on one of those setups, but on the other side of the amp is most likely the standard Ford plugs (2 rectangle instead of 1 rectangle, 1 square) you can just use those and do away with the amp in most cases. You shouldn't have to cut anything.

Thanks. I'll have to check and see what these connect into. Seems I remember seeing another rectangular connector. Any downside it using the factory amp?

Those factory amps go bad quite often, so we usually just bypass it and replace the source unit to get the car going. If it DOES work, then sure, you can use it. Input will prob. be a little high unless you have a stereo with volume offset adjustment.

Meaning that with the stock piece, where you might have been at 20 on the volume, you might now be at 7 on your new one. The ones that have volume offset let you cut it back making it the same as stock.
