This vehicle-specific wiring harness makes connections between your new car stereo and your car's electrical system.
First, attach the color-coded wires on your Crutchfield-supplied harness to the wires from your new stereo. If you're not using a soldering iron, we recommend that you purchase some wire connectors to secure the connections. Check out our handy article on three ways to connect the wiring harness here.
Now, once this harness is connected to your new stereo, you'll be able to plug right into your car's factory radio connector. This harness saves installation time since you won't have to cut factory wires individually, and this also enables you to re-install the factory radio if needed. A detailed instruction sheet comes with the harness. Warranty: 60 days.
Please read this important note: This harness may not contain provisions for every wire needed to complete your installation, and it will not accommodate special navigation, video, or factory steering wheel control connections. You will need a special adapter if you want your factory steering wheel audio controls to work with your new stereo.
Note: This harness does not include rear speaker wires. It may be necessary to either splice your receiver's rear speaker wires to existing wires (if present), or run new rear speaker wires from your receiver to the speakers — see "Accessories" for speaker wire.
Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so. You can also call an Advisor for more information.
Works as expected, makes wiring easy
Pros: Good product
Cons: Doesn't included amp adapter but still good product
Just the thing for adding a new radio to my 1988 Volvo 240DL wagon. My previous radio was stolen so I decided to take to opportunity to learn how to install a replacement. All in all, relatively painless. Soldered the connections. Color guide was all correct. And the speakers are working on both sides now (sorry to the thieves, who apparently got a broken unit...)
It fit the stock adapter but given that most volvo 240's require rewiring one or more speakers I'd say don't bother with this. You won't save much time or hassle.
Pros: Fit the factory wire harness
Cons: You don't really need it...and probably shouldn't use it.
Wiring was a perfect match to the radio and wiring harness. Easy assembly once the connection was found on the lower left of the center console.
Cons: The 240 Volvo installation requires the addition of about 8 more inches to be able to reach from the radio to the harness connection located at the bottom left of the center console. It was necessary to remove the driver panel of the console to locate the connection.
I ordered a wiring harness for a 240 DL. I told the person that was taking my order that I had 4 speaker system. He assured me that this was the wiring harness I needed and it would fit and only take a 30 min to install! This harness did not fit the rear speakers were not covered in the harness at all. I called back and he assured me that he would send me the right harness. It arrived and was completely wrong basically just blew smoke!
Cons: Would not fit my car properly! Operator blatantly lied twice!
The connector and harness was of no use for me on my 88 Volvo 740 wagon. The wire colors did not match with my car's wiring. The connector did not fit properly. I used the old connectors and wires, which consisted of a nine pin and a four pin, after I traced the function of each wire.
Cons: Did not work for me.
The adapter fit the vehicle and made the reciever installation very easy.If you have the optional (dealer installed) premium stereo w/pre amp,You need to use the wire harness from the pre-amp to connect the rear speakers to the replacement reciever.
Pros: Fit the wire harness as stated.
Cons: Non found.
I found that the cable that was shipped to me had one contact improperly installed. The strain relief crimp was the only thing retaining the wire. The stripped wire was not captured in the conductive crimp. The right speaker kept dropping out so once I found and soldered this connection, things were fine.
Received the wiring harness but had no wiring diagram with it. Was told had to buy a Master Guide? Had to guess the pin out. Would have been nice to have a simple pin out guide with the wire harness. Not a happy customer.
Got this with my order from Crutchfield. After pulling the factory amp (which supplies audio to the rear speakers), I discovered that I had to salvage the output-side connector from the amp to the rear channels to make for a modular stereo harness. It seems like this particular component should be included in this kit, as any car that does not have rear channels can simply forgo the second adapter and only use the first.
Otherwise, worked fine and installation was a snap. Soldered the various harness leads together and was on my way in no time.
Crutchfield Wiring Harness: Crutchfield wiring harnesses prevent you from having to cut your vehicle's factory radio plug when replacing your factory radio with an aftermarket head unit. Simply solder or crimp the Crutchfield wiring harness to your aftermarket head unit's harness (solder & crimps not included), plug the aftermarket head unit's plug into the rear chassis of the aftermarket head unit, and plug the Crutchfield wiring harness into your vehicle's factory radio plug.
Note: Installation tools, hardware, & accessories are not included & sold separately. Please see the Accessories tab for recommendations & availability.
Wiring Notes: If the Crutchfield wiring harness is not equipped with a ground wire, you will need to ground the aftermarket head unit's ground wire to the metal chassis of your vehicle. Some vehicle's may require you to bypass the vehicle's factory amplifier (in another location from factory radio) or hardwire certain connections. If your vehicle is equipped with factory steering wheel controls, an additional adapter is required & sold separately.
