Question Need advice on new radio

Hi all and welcome to the main problem i have been having for the last few hours?

Well i have a ford mondeo mk1 L-reg. Its great but i have to change the radio-cd plyer on it because its not working properly!! NO PROBLEM I THOUGHT.......

HA HA was i wrong or what!!!!!

Anyway what the previous owner had done was install a radio but cut off the origional terminal block!! (well done numpty). then they had proceded to put wires direct to the battery (only used standard speaker wires lol). i dont have a rearly big problem with that as i thought i could get the old wires back but the radio no longer turns off with the ignition. i have worked out why.

when they put this new radio in they joined 2 wires together directly behind the stereo (constant power and the supposed ignition wire).

anyway what im here today for is to try and get help installing a new iso block. i have a standard iso block BUT i dont know what colour the wires are that need to go into the POWER part of the block. My radio needs the following wires

(these need to be the ford mondeo L-reg wire colours)

Battery ignition (ACC)
Power control
ignition battery (ACC)
earth (ground)


I am not sure what ACC means? any help very much welcome i have all the ford wiring diagrams but cant rearly work it out. i have sorted out the speaker side of things.

cheers for the help?!?!? IF YOU CAN

ACC= accessory position on the ignition key ie the first position before the dash lights come on.

Re: Need advice on new radio

I hate when people butcher radio installs. One of the most annoying things when getting a used car is trying to put a good radio in only to find that someone decided to cut all the wires short, combine wires, etc. It makes a 10 min. job, a 2 hour job.

hope i'm not to late the blu/black wire is for the ignition, the big orange/black is for the memory, black/ green is ground and the small wire orange/black is illumination.
