Metra 70-1858 Receiver Wire Harness

For select 1985-05 General Motors-built vehicles

Zoom
  • Metra 70-1858 Receiver Wire Harness

    Front

 

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:

  • 12V constant power
  • 12V switched power
  • chassis ground
  • 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.

A couple issues..

Written By Mitch C., Mount Pleasant ,Tx on Sunday, April 13, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have installed a Metra harness in other vehicle but this one gave me a fit, it added alot of extra frustration. The plug was offset a bit and would not fit right into factory harness , had to split the harness and pull over to fit right , also had problems with factory connection at plug , once I heard it snap into place i had power to receiver. The instructions were great and it was easy to terminate wiring per color code.
Pros:
Easy instructions.
Cons:
Fit not great.

Wiring harness for 94 chevy truck

Written By Wiring harness, Harrison, Arkansas 72601 on Sunday, April 13, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The wiring harness is installed with ease with the included instructions and the part works properly and has no issues the free shipping from Crutchfield is the best but each wire is printed on the wire with what it corresponds to in the vehicle in my opinion it is as easy as 1,2,3 just plug and play
Pros:
Easy installation free shipping easy to identify each wire
Cons:
If customer does not know they need butt connectors that can be annoying to have to buy something else to properly install part instead of black tape install. Maybe include the amount of butt connectors to install the part even if the price is raised by a Dollor or two

Makes instakllation a snap. I used crimp-on quick connect terminals connecting the two piecse together while sitting in the house. Easier than soldering and can always change as needed.Color coded, makes it simple.
Pros:
Striaght forward, easy instructions can br done outside vehicle
Cons:
It would be nice if they included some crimp style connectors. i have some and the tool bit imagine most people don't or are good at soldering.

Soldered the new stereo's wires to this adapter and plugged it in. Worked fine.
Pros:
Wire colors matched up. I double-checked them but it made it much easier after I confirmed color match.
Cons:
OEM plugs did not fit quite right. They were hooked together and it put them at a funny angle. Broke them apart and it went in fine. More of a con to GM OEM than this product.

Receiver Wire Harness for 1997 Saturn

Written By Henry, Tucson, AZ on Tuesday, January 07, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The product itself was excellent, but I was disappointed that no mention was made by Crutchfield that you need a special antenna adapter. Saturn/GM uses a micro connector for the antenna and you need an adapter cable to be able to attach it to most stereo systems.
Pros:
Easy to use
Cons:
Need to go buy the special adapter cable, remove the stereo and re-install it sure would have been nice if I had known before that I needed the adapter cable

New install for 2000 GMC Sierra

Written By Mark, Northern CA on Thursday, November 21, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I was concerned that installing a new unit in my 2000 GMC Sierra, I would have to cut into wires. This wire harness made things simple. After reading the wiring diagram for this harness and my new unit, my daughter easily soldered all the connections. The new unit easily plugged into the stock harness.
Pros:
Easy, no messing with your vehicle's wire harness. Simply match the wire harness to your new unit and then plug it into your vehicles existing radio wire harness. Anyone can do this. Directions are extremely clear.
Cons:
none - it's idiot proof.

I was able to sit down at my kitchen table with my crimper and butt connectors and get it ready for plug & play. With the Kenwood Excelon, the wire colors matched up perfectly, which made it even simpler.
Pros:
simple and straightforward as long as you have good quality crimper and connectors and know what you are doing.
Cons:
none

Worked perfectly with my '97 Saturn SL2. Match colors or follow the wiring directions of the stereo to this unit and it's super-easy for a guess-free wiring installation. Recommend using bullet-plug or spade-type wire connectors if you ever need to change radios again.
Pros:
Easy to install. Fits stock wiring harness connector.
Cons:
None.

Used this with an Alpine unit in a 2002 Yukon. I soldered the Alpine wires to this harness and connected one end to Alpine, the other to the stock harness. that's it. the only issue was the Blue/White on the Alpine had to connect to the solid blue wire on this harness. That's the only color that didn't match up exactly. But a Crutchfield technician cleared it up for me in about 5 minutes.
