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 don't know how to use a soldering iron, we recommend that you purchase some wire connectors that you'll use to attach the Crutchfield-supplied harness to your factory harness.

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 makes installing your new stereo easier, and allows you to put the factory radio back when you sell your vehicle or return it at the end of the lease. 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:

Notes: You'll need to connect the receiver's ground wire to either the braided strap inside the dash, or to the ground wire, or you may need to make a new ground connection to your car's chassis. On some vehicles, you may have a common ground. If so, the speaker negatives are electrically the same for the left and right side speakers. Most aftermarket receivers (and all that Crutchfield sells) will need an additional adapter, or you may run new speaker wires from your receiver to the speakers - see "Accessories" for speaker wire.

Infinity Sound System Notes: If your vehicle has the Infinity system, you'll connect the blue wire from the Crutchfield harness to the amp remote wire from the new receiver. There also may be a second wire, usually green/black, attached to the factory radio chassis with the braided strap. If so, this is the ground for the Infinity amplifier(s), and it must be attached to the braided strap and the replacement receiver's ground wire.

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.

Convenient

Written By fighterace0, Georgia on Monday, January 20, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Was slightly confused how this was supposed to work. I think I was told I wouldn't need to solder. This comes with a clip on one end and pre stripped wires on the other. You clip into your original wire harness and have to solder or strip the other end to work with your new radio. The color codes were all perfect but I matched the diagram to their function and not color anyway. The clips pre-sort the colors for you and keep you from having to strip and solder/crimp the connections in the car. I soldered these indoors then took them to the car and snapped them in place.

NOTE: Doesn't include ground wire. There was no place for me to screw in my existing ground onto the new radio or to bolt the radio's ground to the car easily. I used a nut to secure my existing ground and screw to my new radio's ground wire.

Overall this is the easiest way to do it but it does require slightly more work than snap snap done. '93 Dodge Caravan
Pros:
Very well organized, great instructions. Easy setup.
Cons:
This does require solder or crimping. Ground wire might be a tad tricky.

Wire harness adaptor

Written By GR Minnesota, Grand Rapids, MN on Tuesday, January 14, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Using this kit saves your the headache of determining what each wire in the factory harness is for. Simple as matching colors. Spicing all the wires from the stereo onto this is much easier, no need to fumble around inside the dash, just plug in and done. Plus you can easily reinstall the factory head unit if you ever need to. Setting this up ahead of time made installing the deck in my 99 jeep wj take literally 20 minutes start to finish. I'll never instal a head unit without one of these kits.
Pros:
Major time saver Easier to install

Works well in 98 Grand Cherokee w/ Infinity system

Written By Sean, Lennox, SD on Sunday, January 05, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Works as expected. The only issue that I ran into after hooking it up was that the radio sound worked, just no sound when playing a CD. I have the stock amplified Infinity system so instead of connecting the two solid blue wires, you need to connect the solid blue from the wiring harness to the remote turn-on of the new head unit (mine was blue/white). Works perfectly for both the radio and CD's.
Pros:
easy to use
Cons:
mastersheet could be more specific and note that you need to cap or tape off the blue wire on the new head unit and only use the remote turn-on wire

Simplifies Installation

Written By RLW, Christiansburg, VA on Sunday, December 29, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I spent a couple of hours soldering and shrink tubing reliable connections from the Kenwood harness to the Crutchfield reverse wire harness for my 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee. This permitted me to comfortably make all the connections on the workbench and later, quickly snap things together in the dash of the vehicle. I could not be happier with the results.
Pros:
Makes installation quick and easy, connections are more reliable. It was free, included with my purchase. It did no damage to the factory wiring and permits the old unit to be placed back in the vehicle if I ever trade.
Cons:

Easy installation into the existing harness in my old Dodga Dakota.

I have been putting stereos in cars since the '70s, this wiring kit makes the job VERY simple. Make your connections on the work bench, not on your back while twisted into a knot to get around under the dash cutting your hands on brackets and sharp plastic!.

Perfect fit for my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee, exactly matched my vehcile wiring harness.
Pros:

You do require simple tools and hardware, not for someone who cannot solder or crimp wires. On a DIY scale this would be a beginner project.

Receiver Wiring Harness

Written By Not happy, USAA on Monday, September 23, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The kit consists of two wired multiplugs intended to attach to the vehilce connections. The dark colored plug that is provided includes most of the speaker connections and is a male plug. The corresponding vehicle plug is a male plug, and obviously they do not connect. The harness is described as being for my vehicle.
Pros:
One plug does connect to the appropriate vehicle plug. This plug has some extraneous connections but can be used. The harness is provided free of charge.
Cons:
The inability to use one plug makes it necessary to look up the vehicle wiring color codes and connect half of the wiring one wire at a time. Having done all of that, the use of the one plug is a small convenience.

Perfect Installation

Written By Glenn, Cincinnati on Saturday, August 24, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Used crimping connectors and followed directions and it worked without issue. These harnesses simplify installation and when I upgraded to a better HU by the same manufacturer, I just disconnected the old and connected the new and slid the HU in without issue. Everything worked and we were done in 15 minutes.
Pros:
Perfect interface.
Cons:
None.

97 Cherokee XJ Flawless Fit

Written By Uncle Herb, NJ on Thursday, August 22, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Crutchfield selected exactly what I needed to install my new headunit into my XJ. Instruction sheet was easy to understand and it was a breeze.
Pros:
Works
Cons:
Had a bit of confusion as there were two illumination wires (1 orange, 1 orange with a white stripe) on the harness and only 1 for my head unit. Apparently the one with the orange and white stripe is connected to the internal dimmer. I went with the solid orange and taped off the other one. No problems but jammed me up on Google for a couple minutes.

Receiver Wire Harness

Written By BillW, APO AP on Wednesday, August 07, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Easy to follow directions made it easy to install using a crimper. The colors of both this part and the wire harness for my JVC matched so there was no confusion. After they were connected, it was just unplug from the old radio, plug in to this harness, and then plug in to the radio. The whole operation took about 30 minutes which included removing the old radio and installing the new one.

It's all there

Written By D. Maury, Upper Darby, PA on Sunday, July 28, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Mistakenly threw my connector kit into a dumpster because I removed my head unit from the shipping box and did not read my order sheet stuffed in the packing peanuts. When I reached back to get my order sheet in case of a return I noticed that the bezel kit and the wiring harness were shipped with the head unit. I actually thought I was stiffed by Crutchfield and was prepared to call them back. DOH! After hooking up all the wires the instructions for connecting the ground wire did not make sense. I called to speak to a service rep who gave me a suggestion that completed my install. Thanks for the help needed and I promise to search thru the packing peanuts for now on.
Pros:
Easy instructions
Cons:
Slightly confused with the ground wire instructions

What a time saving accessory. I was fully prepared to have to cut a bunch of wires. Wires were clearly labeled, colors were easily identifiable (and I am slightly color blind), the wire lengths were perfect, and the connectors aligned perfectly.
Pros:
Easy, time saving, worth the money
Cons:
None.

Exactly What I needed

Written By Wayne A., Altoona, PA on Friday, June 14, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Exact fit for my 2001 PT Cruiser existing wire harnesses. The two piece wire harness matched perfect to the stock harness from the old stereo. I installed a JVC (KD-R640) receiver into my car with these wire harnesses from Crutchfield. When it arrived, all the necessary instructions and wire diagram was included. Matching all the wires was easy and a pleasure to install. If you can read and follow directions, anyone could do this in their car.
Pros:
Exact fit, all color coded making it so simple.
Cons:
None

Fit perfectly in a 1998 Dodge Durango, initially tried a harness from Amazon that one connector was keyed wrong. Plenty of room behind Clarion radio for the addition bulk of wiring.
Pros:

Had to modify chassis ground connection to match existing connection. Very minor!

When connecting this to a Chrysler 300m you need to connect the blue wire that is extra on the plugin and the blue/white wire to get the sound to work. I had to call support to make sure I was doing wrong and it took 1 minute for them to find my problem and tell me what it was. then boom 100% fixed! Don't be afraid to call support, they are super helpful!
Pros:
Click in super easy.
