Metra 70-2003 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 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
  • 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.

2000 Chevrolet Prizm
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This wiring adaptor made it simple, and the new stereo worked from first power-on. Be aware that you also need an antenna adaptor, as the lead from the 2000 Chevy Prizm is smaller that aftermarket radios accept. I jammed a shim to make contact until I could order the adaptor, and I have at least some radio reception.

Pros: Easy color coding, prestripped wire ends, plug fits perfectly.

Cons: As mentioned above, an adaptor kit should include the antenna adaptor, or at least make you aware that you need one. Pretty disappointing when you are all hooked up and realize the lead and port don't match.

Doesn't fit 2002 S10

Written by: ksteed from North Carolina on April 13, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My rating isn't bad, but the catalog or system is definitely thrown off. They sent me the wrong wiring harness which delayed my installation a week. First I wasn't shipped one, second was the wrong one, third was a champ.

Pros: Would be great if it fits an s10 in which the website says "Yes" in actuality "No"

Cons: Didn't fit

Crutchfield response on April 15, 2015 We're very sorry about not including the harness originally. That was a big mess up on our part. As for the second one, it turns out that there are a handful of 2002 Chevy S10's out there that are actually late-year 2001 models, which means they have 2001 wiring harnesses. Unfortunately yours is one of those trucks. We tried to help by sending the replacement harnesses via overnight delivery.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was nervous about trying to install a new radio in my daughter's car for Christmas while she was traveling. My son recommended Crutchfield because he had installed a new radio in his car. When I got the wires connected and installed the radio, there was no sound. I called tech support and was told to connect two wires that had not been connected and were different colors. That's all it took to make the radio work fine. Getting the radio installed by the dealer would have cost $100. It felt great to save money and accomplish something I wasn't sure I could do.

Pros: Great tech support!

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a top quality adapter, especially when you consider that Crutchfield throws it in for free with the purchase of most head units. Aside from the easy to follow included wiring diagram, each wire is individually and clearly marked along their length, making having to refer back and forth to the diagram unnecessary. Paired up perfectly to the factory harness and everything worked when done!

Pros: Easy to follow diagram, clearly marked wires.

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Goes without saying this is a must have when replacing a OEM unit so that you don't have to cut the existing recepticle from the factory wire harness and try to match up all the wires in the dash. If you ever want to put the OEM back in, it's plug and play. Forget crimping or wire nuts to connect this harness wires to the radio's harness. Solder and shrink wrap is the only way to go and anyone can do it. You'll be much happier in the long run.

Pros: Solid instructions, good labeling of wires, vehicle specific plug.

Cons: To easy.

15 minutes with the soldering iron and shrink tubing and I was in the money! Simple instructions, I verified the Pioneer AVH-P3400BH head unit colors all aligned with the adapter plug colors and then went to town soldering each connection for the best connection I could get. Each solder joint was sealed off with shrink wrap tubing to protect the solder locations from shorting out against anything. This makes installation of a new head unit such a simple task. Please, solder your connections!

Pros: Quick and easy No modification of vehicle wire harness Click and play after soldering to head unit leads

Cons:

Product is fine but...

Written by: WSC from Seattle on July 24, 2012

2005 Pontiac Vibe
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This harness is fine but it would have helped to have the posi- connectors for car stereos recommended with this product. The screw caps we used initially broke the (very fine) wires and we had to do it over. Most butt-end connectors are too big for these wires. I'm sure people with experience already know this, but as a first time installer it would have helped a lot to have those recommended. I lost 2+ hours because of this.

Pros: Easy to use, clear coding on wires

Cons: Needed a recommendation about wire connections, such as posi-connectors for car stereos.

Does mention the possible need for factory integration box

Written by: Jeremy from Kalamazoo, MI on August 31, 2011

Whenever I install radios for people I always buy wiring harnesses for easy and neat installation. Bought this for a 04 Aztek and came to find out that it had the door and warning chimes hooked in through the radio (which I guess GM does on newer cars with the premium sound systems). Wish that Crutchfield would have just put a note in the description stating to check and make sure that you made need the integration module. But once I had it worked great.

Kenwood stereo in 2003 Pontiac Vibe

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works great. One problem: after I installed following the instructions and
turned it on, there was no AM reception at all. Called support, unistalled the
stereo and added a connection (blue--blue/white) to power what turns out to be
an electrical component of the antenna (which does not move or retract).
There's no mention of this in the instructions, so beware that you will need to
add an additional connection if you have a car with a stationary powered
antenna. But that's not the harness' fault, is it? Good Product.

Not exactly correct for 2005 vibe moon and tunes package

Written by: Anonymous from Columbus, OH on April 19, 2010

2005 Pontiac Vibe

The harness fits fine with the stock harness, but this crutchfield harness is missing the blue/white wire that is necessary to connect to the stock amp that is included in the moon and tunes package for a 2005 vibe. I hooked everything up, but no sound. Had to call tech support who was great! Told me to splice the two black wires in the factory harness to the blue/white wire included with the head unit, and voila...sound! Just wish I would have gotten the correct harness so I didnt have to cut my factory harness...which is the point of having an adapter.

Soldered it to the radio cable and it worked perfectly. I just wish I knew why it has the subwoofer/amp on/off signal as part of the harness. It makes me wonder if there's something about my car I don't know.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Was not the correct part for my 2002 S10 ZR2. It wouldn't even come close to connecting to my factory harness. Thankfully I checked it before connecting it to my radio. If it wasn't included free I would have tried to return it. As it was, I just went to a local electronics store and bought the correct one.

Easy does it.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This was a perfect adapter. My only complaint would be that it did not say whether or not to use the 3A or the 15A for power. I used the 3A for safe keeping reasons, which turned out, I needed the 15A and was told I could have used both. I do not downgrade it because of this though. Everything else was plainly easy. Remember your crimping tools and accessories.

dosn't get any easier

This is a great product with no room for improvement.
The directions were easy to understand. The wires are clearly marked.
The harness plugged into my factoy harness perfectly.

Bad marks on this only because the package was correct but the part was totally wrong. It was corrected on the second try but that left me with my dash tore apart for 4 days.

Perfect Match with Hyundai Santa Fe Harness

Written by: Robert from Arlington, VA on October 20, 2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used this to install a JVC HD receiver in my 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe with Monsoon sound system. This is the system with a factory amplifier under the passenger seat. The connector is a perfect match to the car's harness so no cutting or modification to the car's wiring is required. Makes installation very easy. The receiver works flawlessly with the car's amplifier and system.

Works great. I took the soldering route, and it was much easier than I had expected. All the wires lined up with my '04 Vibe radio (Moon & Tunes) and the amp still works like usual. Too easy.

This adapter makes life so much easier and without making permanent changes to your vehicle. Once you've used one you'll want to have one for every install. Highly recommend it.

Hyundai with Monsoon System

Written by: Bill from Florida on June 13, 2007

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used this adapter in a 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe with the Monsoon (aka Delphi) system. If you are taking this path to upgrade your system be aware that there is a factory installed amplifier in your vehicle, probably under the passenger seat but there could also be amplifiers in the doors. Since I bypassed and removed the amplifier I can't comment as to how it may alter the sound quality of a high quality deck passing sound through it.

This harness fits the 2005 Jimmy as well. A lot of other websites state that a relocation harness is needed for a 2004, 2005 Blazer or Jimmy but that is not the case, this harness will work great for you.

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.
