so, I'm pretty stupid when it comes to anything electronic. Just bought a 97 Ranger. Radio was absolute crap. So I had to replace it. Well, I'm a broke ****, but a man needs his tunes. So I went out and bought a cheap $50 radio at walmart. Got it home, of coarse my hippy ways lead me to just get rid of the old radio, and not pay attention to what wires were connected to where. So now I've got a hole in my dash, and I feel like a dummy.
Let me throw out some pics
I know it's upside down, and in a few pics, it will be understanding why I feel like an idiot.
So I know what 4 of the 5 wires is on the one. And the one with the 8 wires are speaker wires that are not connected to any of the speakers.
I also know I need to run out and buy a connecting do-dad, or just cut the connection do-dad off, and just splice wires together.
Ya I'm in my pjs, bedtime is coming soon. Graves suck!
So the 4 male connectors are the plugs for the 4 speakers that come from the amp. (Remember the 2 plugs on the cheap radio lol makes me feel pretty dumb) But, it's what I have to work with. I know that the one wire is the antenna, but the green and black wires... not a clue
Now, I know that if I wanted to, and just may have to, I can get 2 female to 1 male connectors to deal with my issue with the 2 vs 4 plugs.
I tore the doors apart to see if the original speaker wires for the 2 front speakers were there, thinking that I could just wire the 2 front speakers to the radio, but those wires are gone, so that bundle of 8 wires in the dash are useless. And the Amp is under the seat, and isn't moving unless I remove the bench seat, and I really don't wanna do that.
So anyways, if anyone can help, I'd appreciate it. I have no idea what kind of amp it is either. I can try for better pics of it, but I don't see them getting much better.
