Metra 70-1720 Receiver Wiring Harness

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 it 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.

Connections:

  • 12V constant power
  • 12V switched power
  • chassis ground
  • power antenna turn-on
  • dimmer
  • left front speaker +/-
  • right front speaker +/-
  • left rear speaker +/-
  • right rear speaker +/-

Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts — please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so, then check here for a list of parts. You can also call an Advisor for more information.

Features

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.

Great, simple solution to adding a receiver to your car/truck

Written By Anonymous, Chicago on Sunday, June 22, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
A self-explanatory solution to adding an aftermarket head unit to your car, this harness came with longer wires than most other harnesses in case you needed it. Bright colors that take the guessing out of which wires are +/-. Much cheaper than buying at an aftermarket local retail store.
Pros:
Bright colors for ease of use
Cons:
None

Great adapter

Written By umina323, Folsom, CA on Friday, March 28, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Wired this baby up, directions were VERY clear and easy to work with, plugged it in and it worked the first time. NO complaints at all, except that I do wish they made a real adapter for my car. I would have paid extra (probably up to $20) for one that was already made and I could just plug in to my deck. I know there's a zillion decks out there and a zillion cars, but still... It took me about an hour to match up, solder, and heat shrink all of the wires so that it would plug into my deck. However, I am still very satisfied with this item!
Pros:
Works great!
Cons:
Had to solder it and do all the work myself

Written By David, Lafayette, CO on Wednesday, February 05, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have to admit that connecting all the wires was the most intimidating part of doing my own installation. This wire harness made it a breeze. The instructions were accurate and helpful, the colors matched up perfectly to the receiver wires, and it turned out to be an easy process to connect everything. I did call Crutchfield tech support to verify that I did not need to connect the various unused wires because this was not totally clear from the instructions, but otherwise this was quick and straightforward.
Pros:
Good quality, perfect fit, easy to understand what needs to be connected.
Cons:
None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This was included with my stereo purchase from Crutchfield and I'm so glad it was! Made the install so much easier. I wired my receiver in a warm comfortable environment instead of having my fingers, hands and wrists all contorted, scuffed and cut up trying to crimp wires inside the dash. I then brought the receiver to the car, plugged it in and slid it into place. What a time saver!

Thanks Crutchfield for including this with my car stereo purchase!

Harness installed in a 97 Accord

Written By Steve, Nashville TN on Friday, May 10, 2013

No problem at all. Plastic connector lined up well, all wires color-coded exactly, instructions done well. I chose to solder my connection and then heat-shrink the insulation, but it could work fine with less-desirable crimp-on connectors. Good choice for the do-it-yourselfer rather than paying a stereo shop.

Perfect fit. Great harness

Written By PDaddy59, Holly Springs, NC on Thursday, January 10, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Fit perfectly in my sister-in-law's 1996 Honda Civic. Major thanks to Crutchfield for noting that you had to split two wires from the second radio harness to get the dome lights to work. Honda bundles some basic car function (dome lights, keyless entry) with the stock head end, which is just bizarre. Thank God for Crutchfield and information on how to get around this.
Pros:
Great value for the money. Good sound and lots of flexibility for set up.
Cons:
Interface is unduly complicated. As noted in previous reviews, the asinine "demo" function is of no use to consumers and should be eliminated by JVC.

As described, but missing some pins

Written By Anonymous, New Jersey on Wednesday, January 02, 2013

Pretty standard wire harness.
Pros:
Colors are industry standard so they matched the stereo connector wires. The wires are also labeled.
Cons:
Missing a pin for the steering wheel control, so if you get a steering wheel remote adapter, you will have to tap into this wire through the original wires.

Worked ok.

Written By Coastdownhills, Hendersonville, TN on Friday, August 17, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Ordered this to be sure of getting a harness compatible with both my radio and automobile. This is specific for the auto but not for the radio. It requires soldering wires to the radio so the harness with your old radio will probably work. It is nice for the color codes to be the same. Don't know if this is industry standard. It would be nice if they included some heat shrink tubs to cover the wires as wrapping with electrical tape would be a real pain. . Fortunately I do a fair amount of electrical work so it was no big deal. I do remember getting a radio and vehicle specific harness for a Ford years ago that snapped onto both the radio and the auto harness. This is not one of those.
Pros:
Color codes same as radio.and allows one to make connections to radio outside the car.
Cons:
does require soldering and wrapping the insulation would be difficult.

Essential to a stereo installation.

Written By EnergySamus, California on Friday, May 25, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Made wiring the new stereo to my Accord a whole heck of a lot easier. Instead of soldering the wires together, though, I decided to twist the ends together into a tight ball, then use electrical tape to secure them (this was mainly because I didn't have a solder on hand). Still works the way it should, and my new stereo operates as it should.
Pros:
Makes wiring a breeze. Included with my purchase of a stereo. All the wire colors coordinated with the wiring for my Sony CDX GT565UP

Metra 70-1720 Receiver Wiring Harness

Written By Ed W., Kansas City on Monday, February 27, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Worked well. Ends came pre-stripped, however, I had to strip slightly more off each of the 13 wires to get enough wire for my big fingers to twist, so not as advantageous as could have been. Directions indicated taking ground wire straight to chassis to ground but that was not possible since you have to hook it up to the stereo's wiring harness first. So I had to cut the wire, splice it with the stereo's wiring harness as well as splice it with the piece I had cut off to then connect it to the chassis.
Pros:
Makes connecting to the original car's wiring a lot simpler.
Cons:
Instructions could have been better especially for a novice like me.

Thank you, Crutchfield, for including this with my stereo. It really made things easy.

Without this harness, I would have cut the end off the stock stereo, which is dead, but then I would still have to figure out which wire does what. This harness took a fraction of the time.

Color codes matched my Alpine stereo, which was nice too.

This wiring harness is well designed and has all of the wire names/purposes printed on the sides, a very important feature for someone who is color blind (like me). The only thing that could improve it is if they included wire connectors so I didn't have to splice/solder the connections.

Perfect connection to Kenwood. Crutchfield even identified the wires that were not to be used (on the Kenwood harness). Just one wire was confusing and the Crutchfield team clarified in just a few minutes. I would suggest taking 6 inches of wire off the harness so that you don't have a lot of extra harness length.

Metra 70-1720 Receiver Wiring Harness

Written By Alan, Pasadena, CA on Monday, May 02, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The wiring harness worked great for my 2000 Acura Integra GSR.

I was able to wire the Alpine stereo to the wiring harness on a workbench.
When it came to install the radio, all I had to do was plug in the radio, and the
radio and all of its functions worked great.

The wiring harness directions were exact, no modifications required and it
saved time, instead of wiring the radio in the car.

Great product would recommend it to anyone when installing a radio and
wanting to keep the factory wiring harness.

Wiring adapter...

Written By GVTDI, Grass Valley, CA on Saturday, February 05, 2011
 
This adapter provides a way to connect your factory radio harness connecter to a new
head unit. The head unit should come with it's own harness similar to what Crutchfield
provides but with a connector that fits the head unit (stereo). You simply connect the two
half-harnesses together then plug each end into it's appropriate connector, one to the
radio and the other to the vehicle's radio connector. It doesn't get any easier than that.
Use only heat-shrink over the newly soldered connections, not electricians tape or duct
tape. I have done about a half-dozen installs on various vehicles using Crutchfields
adapters and they worked perfect every time. Re-installing the factory radio then
becomes as simple as removing the non-original radio, pulling the adapter connector
from the factory harness then reinstalling the factory radio. Bottom line is that you are to
make a
specialized adapter to match the new stereo to the car's existing radio connector without
butchering the original factory harness.

Written By Tim, Pittsburgh, PA on Wednesday, July 08, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This worked very well. It allows you to attach the wires from the unit to this harness without having to sit in the car and do it. Once the wires are soldered together, you can just plug it into the car and go.

There were a couple wires from the stereo that didn't have a matching wire (such as cell phone speaker). I also had to search around for a while to realize that I needed to connect both power wires (yellow) from my stereo to the one yellow wire in the harness. Other than that, this is great.

Harness mostly okay

Written By Gary, Ridgefield, CT on Monday, June 08, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Wires matched up color for color. There was one wire labelled PCONT, that I still have no idea what it for and I left it unconnected. That I had to do soldering between two connectors was unknown to me prior to installing the product. I do not know why Crutchfield couldn't have provided the harness already done however. Their literature at the time of buying only mentioned needing two screwdrivers and an 8mm socket wrench (the latter I didn't need). So what was to be an X hour project, became a X+1 hour project. Thankfully, I had a solder iron, but no shrink wrap, and I ran out of electrical tape so I had to use duct tape to insulate the soldered wire connections. I am really complaining about the literature. The harness is fine.

If you are doing a self install on a source unit, this harness makes life so easy. The colors match up exactly to those of the wiring harness of my source unit. Followed the supplied instructions with the harness. I have a 97 TL & at 1st I was worried about the colors matching (the wire colors of the car factory adapter didn't seem to match up to the colors on this harness) But I wired it together & plugged it in just to give it a shot - worked like a charm. Up & running right off the bat. I used heatshrink splice connectors. I was able to do the wire crimping in the comfort of my kitchen. Afterwards, plugged it in & everything worked like the instructions said. I can't see myself doing it without this wire harness - I feel it's a must have & allows you to leave the original OEM radio connectors intact

There was no mention that the blue wire that is labled power antenna needs to be spliced to the red wire so that the external power amp. receives 12volt power otherwise everything works fine except there. is no sound. Once I did this I had sound(audio). Other then that the harness worked out just fine.

For my 96 Honda Civic, the speaker wire color code (of this harness) to the factory harness is wrong. After much aggravation, reversed the wires on two of the speakers and got it working. I would recommend you test your speakers before soldering (use small wire nuts for a temporary connections).

There is no such product because that would require that every single harness exist for every single different type of aftermarket plug. This product does EXACTLY what it is designed to do. It deserves 5 stars, as that's how it works, and if you're doing the install yourself, you understand that's how it works.

I'm sure it's a cost issue, but it would've been nice if there was a harness that required no splicing/taping/soldering. In other words, one end has the head unit plug and the other had the car's plug. Now THAT would've been a great time saver and I could've just plugged in the head unit in one second.
