So I need to pull the Magnadyne M4 head unit out of the dash to connect wiring that I assume got left un-hooked, antenna and rca wires to over head TV.
The problem is, I also didn't get the U shaped wire used to release the unit from it's carrier in the dash.
Can anyone on here tell me if this wire is larger or smaller gauge than say a wire coat hanger? I assume smaller, my plan is to try and bend my own wire to release the unit rather than drive 20 miles back to the dealer and wait 2 days.
Maybe the regular Ford stock radio U wires would work? If so I could probably just hit an Auto Zone and buy them.
Not sure if this helps but in my unit the maganadyne wires were supposedly in a plastic sleave that held the operational instructions. What about your local audio geek store. Those guys with their hat turned backwards, might be able to help, scarry I know, but unless your stealer has the tool, they might be a better choice.
Turns out I know someone who has a set of the original Ford radio removal tools and I'm going to try them and see if they will work.
I'm betting the wire size is about right, I may need to bend them a little to match up with the Magnadyne holes though.
I've done a little reading here on these forums and it sounds like the reviews of this Magnadyne unit are mixed at the very best. I hope once I get everything connected like it should have been it's better than what it sounds like.
I gotta say though, so far all we've gotten to hear is the alternator whining in the speakers.
