I have a new to me '94 Explorer 2-door 4wd with the factory
am/fm/cassette player ... DNR on the door (I was told that means there
is a seperate amplifier someplace).
Everything powers on ... and sometimes I can hear very low (at full
volume and no matter how I balance the speakers) music ... both on the
am/fm band and with a casette.
I checked the fuses for the radio and the amp .. botha re fine (even
ohm'd them out to make sure my eyes didn't fool me).
Not having an owners manual I ordered one and the radio guide is a
seperate manual and wasn't aprt of my order. Bought an aftermarket
(Haynes) guide and it was no help for this.
My questions are :
1) where is the amplifier hidden ?
I traced the wires back from the empty hole I have in the dash now ...
and see nothing helpful ... hanging upside down didn't give me a clue
as to where it might be working back from the fuse panel (though I did
find a brake control unit stuffed up there) and I also checked behind
the glove box.
too cold to deal with a blind hunt, but I might go crazy listening to
the tires hum (or worse yet .. I might start to sing ...) so a hint
would be appreciated.
2) back of the radio there are spots for antenna, 8 large flat pin
(power and ... , 8 pins I suspect are tot he (4) speakers all of
which have wires going to them.
There is also a 6 pin spot and a 2 pin spot with nothing to them .
does anyone know what these are for ?
if any go to the amp I'm in trouble :^)
I googled the web and usenet without anything that led anywhere
thanks in advance
