FORD FAIR – SILVERSTONE – 6TH AUGUST 2017
Join us on the Ford Owners Club stand at Ford Fair, Silverstone on Sunday 6th August 2017.
Hi All I have an X Reg Ford Mondeo with a Standard Ford 5000RDS radio installed. I have also installed a CD changer with the adapter plug. I would also like to install an amplifier to power some speakers on a shelf I have made. I understand that the Ford 5000rds system has a remote terminal that will switch an amplifier on, but I can not find a suitable schematic that tells me where it is in the back of the radio. I have wired the amp direct to the battery (in line fuse installed), and there is a good earth, and 12 volts is definately going through the amp. But I have not connected the remote wire correctly (I think!). If someone could email me or post a schematic on this forum that shows me how the remote wire should be connected then that would be excellent. looking forward to getting all your advice. Regards Ade
