Question Where is it?

This is my first mustang and I am replacing the stock sound system. My 98 has the premium sound option but I have no idea where the stock amp is and how to bypass it....will i need a wiring harness?

Wiring harnesses are always better, so if you do decide to get rid of the car you can always go back to the stock system and take the new radio for your new car.

The stock amp is located just under the CD player in the center console. I believe if you were to look on both sides of the center console were the shifter is you may see a few bolts that are holding in the amp or on top when you remove the CD player.

When you remove the radio you will see one long gray plug, these are the power wires. There will also be a square black plug which is all your audio wires. If you have the separate CD player you will notice two sets of cables connecting the stock radio and stock CD player, these you can usually unplug and remove. IF you continue to follower the speaker wires you should see it run into the amp just behind.

I do believe they make a wiring harness to bypass it.

Are you looking to completely remove the amp or change the radio?

You can also just unplug the connections and splice/bridge the wires together to bypass the amp.
