CD6 Speed Sensitive Volume

Ok I was checking out www.generation-edge.info and found a how to for the CD6 to make it have speed sensitive volume. What I want to know is how to go about the connector. It says I can use a 20 pin Explorer harness or a female pin with shrink tubing on it. Ok if I could find a pin where do I put it, I already know what wire to splice into for the speed control. It's the gray/black wire on the GEM. So has anyone done this? And if I have the cd6 in a ranger would the harness already be a 20 pin or is it a 16 pin?

I need to hook up the same wire... I have a CD6 out of an F-250 and I have speed sensitive volume, but it doesnt work. So I need to hook up that gray/black wire too, but I don't know how or how hard it is. If anyone knows please help us.

Not all, or even most, Rangers have a speed/volume equipped CD6. The easiest way to tell is to turn the radio on, then press and hold the on/off/volume **** for about 10 seconds. If the display changes to "Speed Vol 0" then you have it. If nothing happens, you don't, so don't worry about wiring. The display will show the feature even if it isn't connected.

I know that I have the feature, I already established that. But as far as the pin goes or what harness to use I am clueless.

your truck doesn't have the harness, you need a one-pin plug, and you plug it onto the pin described in the how-to. Its either the 2nd or 3rd from the drivers side in the middle row of the unused large square port.

Where could I locate a one-pin plug? And I appreciate all this help. My truck is actually somewhat similar to yours Wowak. Mines a 2002 Edge Supercab 4x2 Same red color with the 3.0 but it's an auto. Oh and no limited slip.

speed sensive vol control

i went j/y and found explorer with plug that had single gray/black wire installed in plug already also got plug for power and speaker connection side also. if you can not find this plug, you can use pug for power side of radio. these plugs have a red insert in center of plug that you can pull out of plug and that will release all pins in plug and you can remove each wire with pin from plug . just pick out a wire and sleeve it with tubing from radio shack .
hope this helps .these plugs if in j/y or found on back side of radio
