Ford Radio Wire Harness Digram and Color Codes

ford radio wire harness color codes

One of the main problems car owners face when upgrading to an aftermarket radio is the radio wiring of their vehicles.

It’s because, unlike aftermarket radios, the color codes for wires in factory radios are not standardized and vary between manufacturers.

Even the same brands use different color codes for different vehicle series and years.

In this article, I’ve listed radio wirings for different ford vehicles such as F150, F250, Fusion, etc.

Since the list is not exhaustive, it may not contain the color code info you’re looking for. If that is the case, feel free to comment down below.
