Just bought a 2015 PIU and in the process of getting it all sorted out. Odd problem with the radio. The speakers in the rear doors seem to work fine (even though the door panels have no grill openings) the fronts however do not work at all. Checked that there are speakers in the doors and that they are connected, checked the fader control it is in middle, no hanging wires at the back of stereo unit and no cut wires that I could easily see. Is it common for PIU's to have the front door speakers disconnected? I know there is no front center speaker, is my lack of front sound related to that? Dealer wants $150 just to diagnose, and suggests I just buy a used radio online and see if that solves the issue. Any help would be appreciated.

Download the police modifier's guide for the ford police interceptor (google search). There was an option to order them disconnected. Info is likely in there.

Jason you are correct kind sir. The Guide had what I needed on page 2-67. I had seen that guide before, but only skimmed thru it. Guess I should make it a complete read as it seems full of info. Also used it to remove 100+ feet of wiring left behind after my PIU was taken out of service. All the wires were just cut and left hot when the battery was re-connected, a very bad thing when I found the two(2) 50 amp circuits going back into the rear compartment not even taped off :(
