Metra 70-1763 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:

Note: Your vehicle's wiring harness may not include a ground connection. If not, you'll need to make a ground connection between your new receiver and your car's metal chassis.

  • 12V constant power
  • 12V switched power

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 and sold separately.

Worked Perfectly the First Try

Written By apm300, Grove City, PA on Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Needed this to connect my new Kenwood Excelon KDC-X598 and new Polk Audio speakers in my '93 Nissan 300ZX. Instructions were clear and the process was easy (and fun). I liked how the wires were already prepared for me to connect - needed only to pull off a half inch of covering on the ends.
Pros:
Perfect for my needs; ready to connect
Cons:
None

Sony DAX-S210X

Written By Dan, Va. Beach, VA on Wednesday, June 19, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I was only looking for a basic in dash replacement for my 240sx. The sale price caught my eye, and not to mention it's a Sony product. My music library thru an ipod nano pretty much stays put inside most of the time. I also listen to Pandora quite a bit and being able to access it through the head unit is something now that I can't live without. This unit, coupled with my powered subwoofer, makes my 2 hour daily work commute much more liveable. And more importantly, CRUTCHFIELD SERVICE ROCKS!!!
Pros:
Full of high end features for the price, excellent sound quality once dialed in
Cons:
Takes some time and patience to navigate through the menus. If you're the type of person that prefers designated knobs for basic functions, i. e. bass, treble, fader, etc. , then this is not for you

I just connected the wires by twisting the copper/aluminum wires together and taping with electrical tape. In normal use this will do fine.
