This the same as a 2010 w/ Pre sound?GeoGeek wrote:I found the following scheme online and found it to be correct for my 2011 Escape XLT (w/ Sync, w/o premium sound):
Battery +12V = white w/red stripe at radio harness
Accessory +12V = Blue
Ground -12V = Black w/ blue stripe
Illumination + = violet w/ gray stripe
Amp turn on + = violet with red stripe (mine didn't have this wire because I don't have the external amp).
LF Speaker + = white
LF Speaker + = white w/ brown stripe
RF Speaker + = white w/ violet stripe
RF Speaker - = white w/ orange stripe
LR Speaker + = white w/ green stripe
LR Speaker - = brown w/ yellow stripe
RR Speaker + = brown w/ white stripe
RR Speaker - = brown w/ blue stripe
Since there is no good switched turn on lead for turning on an outboard amp, I had to put in a relay and use the purple w/ green stripe wire in the smart junction box (right side of center console below base of shifter...behind the removable panel) to trigger the relay (pin 86).
I used an Audio Control Three.1 as the preamp in my system...let us know how the ReQ5 works out.
