My brother is attempting to install a aftermarket radio into a Ford Taurus SES 2001. Instructions he has read, and also what I am seeing is.. people are running cables to a amp in the trunk to the front of the vehicle.. why in the world is it set up like this? Couldn't you just get wiring harnesses that terminate at the front of the vehicle?(in past installs Ive had wiring harnesses that would just connect into the OEM plugs, that I would solder to the aftermarket stereo)
Or is running this long cable necessary? Does anyone have any experience with installing a aftermarket radio into a Ford Taurus ?
Any help is welcome thanks!
