02 1.3 Radio annoyances - harrison110
Hey, I have recently got told by the auto sparky that my radio was draining my battery and got that sorted: so he took my radio out while the car was there. Now I want to fit in a new radio, the 6000 e.on CD version (double din), and have found that there is spare fittings in the back of the radio and I also have a plug that is the wrong orientation and fitting!!

The sockets i have free on the back of my radio are: the middle vertical slot, and the green almost square one.

The plug that i have left over is a large grey one, female in orientation that has 8 wires going into it.

When i connect the radio with what i have there, the two outside verticals and the antenna i get a backlight on my old radio and neither radio will switch on!

So i have deduced that the sparky has lost one of my old adapters and I have had no luck finding one.

Help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Go back to the sparky and ask him for the adapter.

Uh sorry kith, shoulda put this in the opening post:

The sparky says he doesn't have the adapter that I believe was there, so he either doesn't remember or he has accidentally lost it. Either way I'm a bit stuck because I have spent a looooong time trying to get either radios to work!

Sorry for leaving that out

Is something like this going to do the job?

I hope so, mate. It looks like it is a little different from what I have but I will order it in anyway. After all I can never tell correctly from the pictures :S

Thanks mate.

Halfords sell connectors to connect almost any radio/cd to almost any loom.

im a bit confused
are you putting in a 6000 radio or something different?
if fitting a 6000 then the ford plugs in the car should just connect in and you ignore the other plugs which are to connect up a 6 cd player
