There are to systems for the 1994, one is the base system and the other is the premium sound system, do you know which radio you have?

Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

That looks to be the base system without an amplifier. The premium sound system come with a amp. Have a look at the wiring diagram below. This should be the one your needing.

It was the factory wiring diagram you requested. What was it that you still needed.

Need to match those post to back of radio
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

Im not able to come up with a connector view due to the age. I can open it back up for you and perhaps someone else may have one.

Thanks for trying guess I will have to buy a radio with wire harness
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

One other option you may want to consider it locating a salvage unit where you can get the connector from it. The 1993 to 1996 is the same unit as long as the truck has the base model in it.
