Re: 1997 Taurus GL Radio Issues - NOT TRS Related (?)
Thanks for the drawings, that was a big help. I found the rear unit and identified the (2) main rear unit harnessess, for speakers and power (connectors C478, C411 respectively). It looks like someone was in here at the amp, 3 of the fasteners that hold the felt trim were missing and there is a 3rd harness missing (possibly CD option?) from the far right of the amp and I assume to an empty connector I have in the rear unit harness near the amp.
My question(s) : Is there a way to test the amp? I think the missing harness may be for the CD option (C410 - NO info on this connector) which I don't have, not sure if that is what it is for tho. I know one of the pinouts from the amp is Audio System On (ASYSON), is it possible I have a blown amp and it isn't turning on the radio display? Or is it the missing harness, ie: robbed by the car owner for a different vehicle perhaps? At any rate, with all fuses operating and no radio display, I am leaning towards fried rear unit/amp or possible missing harness. If there was more info on the harness and amp connector C410 I might be able to rule it out, or if anyone knows how to test the amp, and can it indeed prevent the radio from having a display. Thanks guys, and sorry for the novel, I will post as this develops.
