What is the exact model of the head ?

If you would not post as if you are texting, it would be easier to understand your post and help you.

What is the body style and trim of your Ranger ?

What about the speakers have you lost ?

dis be a intraweb forum... nt a hawt babe wit a smartfone...

we here speak the long lost language called "English"

We can help much better with long, descriptive, well thought out, properly stated posts. For one... stop, rethink whats going on and more clearly state the problem if you'd like a proper solution.

kthanxbye.

your problem... you cut the harness.


The extra 20 bucks for a harness would be worth it. Now you gotta track down every wire manually. Get a 9v battery, notepad, and a pen and start tracking the wires down one by one. Or I think I saw a sticky or 2 with the wire colors.

Hope you got plenty of extra time... and good luck.

Yeah... I want paid for my services also...



Yeah you fail. Learn from it, dont EVER trust the big box advisers. They get their knowledge from a computer reference. Local small time shops, as the one im gainfully employed at, get our knowledge by... well doing it. Lesson learned.
