Metra 70-1817 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:

  • 12V constant power
  • 12V switched power
  • power antenna turn-on
  • 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, 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.

The wire harness made the installation soooo easy. They are a absolute must!! Thanks to my product advisor for recommending them. My son is driving a 1996 Dodge Stratus and without the wire harness, I would probably still be laying on my side in the car splicing the wires together. Thanks again!!!

Wiring replacement radio

Written By Stanley, Jarrettsville MD on Friday, July 18, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I ordered a low cost radio through Crutchfield for my 1996 Dodge pickup. I did not want to spend a lot of money as I basically just needed FM stations. Blake at Crutchfield gave me excellent advice. Regarding the wiring I was real nervous on how I was going to wire a Clarion radio to the existing Dodge wiring. With this kit I carefully read the directions, attached the appropriate wires which were easily marked; left front speaker+ or left front speaker-, etc. Taped the wires not needed, turned the key and presto everything worked perfect. No way could I have done this without the kit. Very reasonable and well made. Really impressed with the guidance received by Blake and the constant updates on when the items were shipped and able to track it. Arrived as promised in perfect shape.

Since each wire is pre-stripped, it makes this quick and easy to crimp with your new stereo harness. Each wire is clearly colored/marked which makes it easy to tell which wire it needs to be crimped with on the other harness.

Pre-stripped wires, Clear Color coding, Perfect Fit

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
worked perfectly in my 99 dodge Dakota single cab. Had to use the green and black wire from the dodge as the ground... which I was worried about because I had to crimp directly from the harness to the car.... but it works perfect. sounds great. Crutchfield with flawless instructions.



would have been nice for Crutchfield to send me 20 crimping caps. not a big deal just would have been nice not to drive and go get them when they are like a dollar a dozen. nbd tho. still 5 stars.
Pros:
great sound easy instructions on time shipping
Cons:
(not really any) maybe crimp caps maybe a mini harnass for the black and green ground wire in the dodge.

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

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:
None

Perfect fit. Just follow the instructions for perfect results.

Receiver Wire Harness

Written By Steve, Anniston, AL on Thursday, December 19, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Easy installation into the existing harness in my old Dodga Dakota. The extra wires are not totally explained for the novice (me), but I figured out that I could just cap off the retractable antenna and dimmer wires and use a machine screw with fender washers and a nut to connect the ground wire. Works great!

Nice wire kit

Written By Wayne P., Riverside, Ca. on Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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!. Simply connect the wires to the radio and connect to the car!
Pros:
Works well and makes it easy to add the radio.
Cons:
none

Wiring Harness

Written By Buddy Jaet, Mobile, AL on Tuesday, November 05, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Perfect fit for my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee, exactly matched my vehcile wiring harness.
Pros:
Simple straigh forward instructions, easy to use. I chose to solder the wires and use heat shrinkable tubing to cover them, made it look like a professional installation.
Cons:
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.

Good product

Written By Mike, N/A on Tuesday, November 05, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Harness clips in easy and the wires colors are easily distinguishable. The wire gauge is appropriate and thicker than most head units. The words are hard to read on some of the wires but there weren't any wires that I couldn't read. Words are a nice feature for the colorblind.
Pros:
Good quality
Cons:
Words are sometimes hard to read on wires.

I purchased the #120701817 wire harness when I replaced the radio in my 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE. The instructions told me exactly what to do and the wire harness was a perfect fit for my new radio. All the wires matched color-for-color and the new radio had no electrical issues. Great product !!!
Pros:
Great instructions. Colors on the wire harness matched exactly with the car connector wires.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is the second vehicle that I installed the radio into. I contacted Crutchfield and gave them the new vehicle info. They informed me what new harness adapter was needed and I was all set.
Pros:
Keeping wiring harnesses intact, so if there is a change out just unplug the old and plug in the new.
