Metra 70-1721 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 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: 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.

Missing steering wheel control

Written By LiamD, Ohio on Sunday, November 22, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This harness works great except that it's missing the wire for the steering wheel control. I had to go out and find another one so I could get a wire.

Pros: -It works

Cons: -No steering wheel control wire

Crutchfield makes installing head units super easy no cutting for splicing wires simple snap and go replace unit and turn the key... sound systems are easy for the made to fit harnesses that Crutchfield supplies with the purchase of most of their units

Pros: snap and go ready to install unit and listen to tunes

Cons: none that i can think of so easy a child could do it although i would not recommend this

Slick n Easy

Works Well, Great Value

Written By Grocery Boy Jr., North Carolina on Monday, September 21, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This Metra 70-1721 harness got used to connect a Sony MEX-N6000B single-DIN stereo to the wiring harness of a 2000 Honda Insight hybrid. The fantastic thing is that when soldering this connector to the Sony connector to create the adapter harness, every color wire on one connector matched directly every color wire on the other connector, so making the harness was a SNAP - just matched all the colors (AFTER checking the docs to make sure!) and it worked great first time! I don't use crimp connectors, I solder my harnesses and use shrink-wrap to insulate the connection, so this is more of a concern for me because it takes longer to solder rather than use crimp connectors, but the results are worth it - I cover my harnesses in plastic split wire covers and they perform great and look totally professional. I could not achieve this result with out the Metra connector!

Pros: Good quality plastics, matching the OEM product in color and performance. Good conductors in the connector hood, and all the wires are securely connected. Wires are pre-stripped and I did not have to strip them again to get more copper exposure. Great value for the price!

Cons: None. i would not do this job without this connector.

Good product

Written By Kurt, Ohio on Saturday, August 08, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This connector mated up well with the factory harness and made the install a breeze. I was able to do all the connections at the kitchen table and not with wires hanging out of the dash. For the price (included) it was a great product that made the install work very well, and I've been replacing car radios since 1988.

Pros: Connections work good product plug and play

Orange Wire!?!?

Written By Paul B, California on Wednesday, July 29, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

DO Call tech support to figure out the orange wire mystery... Almost bad enough to defeat the purpose of the harness and the instructions to have a wire that is there but not illustrated and named things that do not match the names in the radio install instructions.

Pros: Snaps in fine to the car's connector Good length of wires Good quality insulation (strong colors, easy to make sense of)

Cons: Illustration does not match regarding orange orange/white pair. Needs to be sorted out.

2003 Odyssey

Written By Anonymous, Illinois on Tuesday, July 21, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works flawlessly, as described. However, I did attempt a splice-out for the steering wheel controls after looking at the wiring diagram for my Odyssey. I saw that the harness did not account for the steering wheel control, but my receiver actually did. Naturally, I attempted to splice around the harness. Despite the effort, my steering wheel controls do not operate. I do still love the after market stereo, though!

Wire harness

Written By Walker, Massachusetts on Sunday, July 05, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If you can solder and follow wiring diagrams this makes an installation a breeze as you don't have to cut into factory wiring.

Pros: Easy directions then just plug it in.

Cons: If you can't follow directions/diagrams then have someone who can do it for you.
