2011 Escape Stereo Wiring Diagram

Postby biggygigi03 - November 8th, 2011, 5:01 pm

Hello all!

I got my escape a few months ago, and its such a difference from a 2000 eclipse gt... but come winter time in northeast ohio, i will be happy i made my decision!

Anyways, I am an intermediate to advanced stereo installer, and I have a quick question.

Does anyone have the color scheme for my escape. I have standard radio with sync, w/o nav w/o subwoofer. I have googled until my eyes hurt and came up with nothing.

I miss listening to my music the way it should be listened to! Im going with the mtx req-5 in order to retain full stock head unit and function but adding a 4 and 2 channel amps with 6.5 components in the doors.

Thank you, in advance, for your time!

Gino

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.

Awesome. Thank you GeoGeek and jpark!

GeoGeek, for your turn on wire, couldn't you have spliced into your accessory wire? Regardless, the req-5 has a traditional 12v lead to turn on amps coming out of it. But to turn on the req-5 (and i have to test to see if the ford stock head unit puts out 12v to the speakers when on) will sense when the speakers are turned on, and turn on itself and the amps. Otherwise, I'm thinking I could just splice into that blue accessory wire for the turn on.

I think that wire doesn't provide enough current to serve as a turn-on lead. You'll be better off using the turn-on output coming off the ReQ5.
