Metra 70-1771 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.

Connections:

  • 12V constant power
  • 12V switched power
  • chassis ground
  • signal ground — connects to same receiver wire as the chassis ground
  • illumination
  • 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. You can also call an Advisor for more information.

Easy, but colors don't match

Written By Paul, Baltimore, MD on Tuesday, September 01, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very nice product. Fits the stock wiring harness the way it should. Not all colors matched, but if you're even remotely intelligent, you'll be able to figure it out. You just have to match the wires to their function, not color. The instructions state this very clearly

Pros: It works

Cons: Come on Metra, don't be so cheap - supply a couple of white cap connectors. It won't kill the profit. Come on. You can do it.

Works great

This was the perfect interface cable to go from the new radio to the factory electrical harness. Be sure to follow the instructions as the color coding of the factory harness may not be identical to the interface cable, but the instructions walk you through the process

Pros: Perfect solution

I have been installing radios and stereo equipment in my personal vehicles since I was a kid.

Using a factory conversion wiring harness is the only way to go. Wiring it to your after market radio and simply plug your radio in. Can't beat it.

Pros: Makes installs fast and easy
