Metra 70-2202 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.

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.

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.

We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

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 SWIC adapter is required & sold separately.

Exactly what I needed!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This was exactly what I needed to hook up my after-market head unit in my 2006 Saturn Ion. The product was easy to locate on the Crutchfield website, the price was low and the shipping was free and fast. Crutchfield is always helpful, quick, and efficient.
Is exactly what you need to put an after market stereo in a Saturn.
Probably doesn't work with many other vehicles, but what do you expect?

Quality Product

Written By Andrew, Rochester Hills, MI on Friday, January 23, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I was having trouble finding the right wiring harness for my girlfriends 2006 Saturn ION. Many places gave me the wrong ones or the one for the older models which did not fit becuase the 2006 Saturn was different than the previous models.

This one I found on crutchfield, where I go all the time to find the right products for cars, and it fit beautifully and it was high quality becuase it was from Metra. I would recommend this harness to ohers looking for a similar product.

So if your needing a wiring harness for a 2006 Saturn ION, this is for you

A+ Crutchfield
A+ Metra
