Metra 70-1722 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, 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.

Works Great

Written By jgower, Vine Grove, KY on Saturday, September 13, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This wiring harness was for my 2008 Honda Fit and a double din JVC unit. The harness worked great. The color coding was right. I was a tiny bit unclear about the remove amp/antenna turn on (both had to be spliced into one wire) but figured this out. Every thing went together without a problem and it works great.
Pros:
Well labeled. Everything works great.
Cons:
Amp/Antenna wires are supposed to be spliced together and this is not made clear.

Receiver Wire Harness for Honda civic and Sony stereo

Written By Steve Bx., Bronx NY. on Sunday, January 19, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This harness connector is the perfect way to install the stereo in any car. The wires on the connector were color matched to the Sony stereo which eliminated any confusion and it took only about 20 minutes to solder and insulate all of the wires. Just remember to put the shrink tubing on the wire before soldering it or you will have to use tape or re do it.
Pros:
A perfect match for my needs!
Cons:
None

It does the job, and well

Written By MJP, CT on Saturday, August 24, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Requires soldering, but I knew that going in, and it wasn't very difficult to do, even for a first timer like myself (although I did a little research about it before jumping in). Crutchfield's search engine correctly matched my car to the appropriate wire harness, and made finding and purchasing it easy. All of the wires I required for my pioneer head unit (pioneer deh x3500ui) were present on this harness.
Pros:
-Correctly matched my 2012 Honda Insight, and will make swapping head units in the future simple
Cons:
-None

Good harness, but not complete kit

Written By Anonymous, Chapel Hill, NC on Sunday, June 30, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a good wiring harness for the plug it does cover, but there are two plugs to cover in the 2008 Honda CRV and this kit does not cover the second plug. That forces you to do some wire cutting and soldering in the dash if you want to use your steering wheel controls for your stereo. If they had covered both plugs you could retain all your vehicle features easily.
Pros:
* well documented * simple to wire up and solder ahead of time * proper fit of plug * covers all but 2 wires needed to wire a stereo properly
Cons:
* leaves off two critical wires you must fish out of the dash manually and solder inside the dash to get working steering wheel - volume controls * leaves off two critical wires that then make the AUX audio port in the vehicle rear a dead port

The product installed as I expected. It would be nice if it had a connector on the opposite end that matched my Pioneer receiver, rather than pigtail end. But overall it is a good product. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another one if I needed it.

Honda harness

Written By Jay, Stone Ridge. VA on Wednesday, August 15, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I had issues with this harness due to the cheap material it was built. The red wire (ignitionpower pin inside the harness was missing) didn't work and I thought the unit was DOA. So I wasted 4 hours in calling tech support and installing and checking cables and fuses couple of time. Finally found this harness was faulty and thankfully Crutchfield has sent a replacement and then the unit worked finally.
Pros:
Works if works
Cons:
Cheap quality.

Just sit at your bench with your soldering iron for a few minutes, matching color-coded wires, clearly stated in a directions photo. Afterward, you can go to your car and just plug it into the stock harness block. Then, your electrical installation is done.

Fits like a glove on my 08 CR-V!

Written By Hector, Wheaton, IL on Saturday, September 12, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This harness fits my 08 CR-V like a glove! Connecting the color-coded wires
to the aftermarket head unit was a no brainer. Everything works well after
installation--even the dashboard (factory) tweeters! You'll lose the factory
subwoofer and AUX though, since those come from two separate
harnesses. In fact, the EX-L model head unit comes with five different
harnesses, but this one is certainly the most important one. No complaints
whatsoever!

This harness works Exactly as the description says. You can do all of your wire splicing sitting down at the kitchen table. The color codes on the harness were exactly the same as on the radio. Also when I go to sell the car I have everything still intact to re-install the factory radio back into the car with minimal hassle.

My question is this, does this item come with both harnesses for the car? I believe on the 2007 Honda Civics have a wired style antenna instead of the normal "rod or prong" style antenna's. Does this come with that plug? [ Harold H.  Dec 23, 2013 ]
