In this case I'd suggest bypassing the wiring harness all together. You'll need 2 power leads. One has to be hot (on) all the time for your clock and station preset memory and the second has to be switched by the ignition switch. Ground the radio to anything, not painted, behind the dash. Then run new speaker wires from the stereo to the speakers. It's a bit of a job but this way you'll know what goes where for your new stereo system. Some police departments use Explorers as patrol cars so there may be a power drop wiring harness hidden under the carpet on the passenger's side behind the glove box. You can tap in there for your 2 hot leads. Just be sure that they're fused with the proper amp fuses for your stereo. If not, simply add inline fuses, to protect your stereo. HTH. -Jim
