Metra 70-1761 receiver wiring harness

This vehicle-specific wiring harness adapter makes connections between your new car stereo and your car's electrical system. It works with select 1987-up Toyota, Lexus, Scion, Subaru, and Geo vehicles.

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.

Matched colored wires, this is Plug & Play. Everything worked 1st time!

Pros: Great way to install upgraded stereo

Wire harness works great!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The wire harness provided with the purchase of my FM stereo radio fit exactly! The included instructions were very good and there was no guess work involved in order to hook up the new radio to my old factory wiring harness.

Pros: It works very well!

Cons: They could have included the wire connectors which you must provide or do like I did and solder the wires and use heat shrink tubing to tidy up your work.

Makes installing a breeze

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

So much easier than splicing wires , just plug and play. Plus, Crutchfield includes this for free. You might spend $20 or more in the big box store for these.

Pros: Plugs into to factory wiring harness

Cons: none

Makes install so easy!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Awesome product. All of the wires were color keyed to match up perfectly to the corresponding wires on the Clarion head unit I was installing. The wires even came pre-stripped to make things even easier. I soldered the wires and used shrink tubing to connect the wire but crimp connectors would work as well. Once the assembly on the kitchen table was done it was a simple matter of plugging the two connectors up to the factory wiring harness.

Pros: Good Quality, pre-stripped wire ends, price was right(free with HU purchase) makes installing a head unit a breeze! I wouldn't consider installing another HU without it!

Cons: Actually there were none!

Great product
