I know that a tape player was available and a CD player was available in 1990, but were the two available together. Anyway, I bought a 1994 FWB's CD combo because it looked the same. But my ploblem is even though it fits, the plugs don't go.

I think the control box's were the same, so can I splice the wires or do I need a whole new 1994 amp??? (I hope not) Nonetheless, the colors aren't the same - can someone tell me what wire to put where to make this thing work? You can see the two below.

This is the original radio's plug - the other end is still in my dash.

But even the colors in the dash don't match the ones on the plug, so I don't know what goes where. The left picture shows the '94 with the other end...see, the colors just don't match. Oh, what do I do. There's the front of the new radio - it doesn't have any differences does it (display, features, etc.)?

I got a factory one in my 90. Mine is only the cd. The cassette cd's were the 93 body styles.

Anyways its the same plugs as a factory cassette....

The CD palyers came with 2 extra speakers too.... which i have. They are mound on the doors.

Those plugs arent the same as a 90 either... i remeber them as being two bigger black ones.

I have a few 90 radios out of 90-92's and thats hoew i rermeber them. But if you can get a factory 90-92 (only 127 made) then its a plug and go... And it works.

My 92 Brougham came with the tape/CD and door speakers.
Both the tape and CD stopped working a few years back - but the radio still sounds good ;)

The CD player in my '90 stopped working too, that sucks, the only reason I bought the damn thing was so I could play CDs, and now it won't.
