  • Metra 70-5520 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
  • 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.

Perfect fit and easily matched up the wiring with the MasterSheet and the manual for my Pioneer deck. My one complaint would be the Parking Brake adapter piece. It broke when pressure was applied to close it on the line. I cannot watch video now and am looking for a solution.

Perfect match

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Just match the color coding to the receiver harness, again solder and heat shrink tubing over all connections. No staticy crimps or unwinding electrical needed in the audio harness.
Pros:
It just plugs in
Cons:
None. Make sure you tell your advisor the build date of your vehicle especially Ford; late M.Y. builds ie. July will have the upcoming years harness in the vehicle and the exact M.Y. part won't fit.

Easy wiring but not complete

Written By Sylvia E, Alaska on Friday, May 17, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This harness made wiring the new Pioneer player into my 2012 F-150 easy. Unfortunately it is not complete. You still need to tap into an ignition controlled hot. Crutchfield should include a fuse tap kit and a suggestion for which fuse to tap into.
Pros:
easy wiring and interface
Cons:
missing ignition controlled hot lead

Take your time

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
There are no functional issues with this adapter. Just take your time and LOOK CLOSELY when you are pairing the adapter wires to the receiver's harness as the color match can be difficult to see with certain wires. Use pigtail connectors and have them on hand before you begin.
Pros:
Works well
Cons:
Matching certain wire colors can be difficult

Not bad

Written By Andrew, NC on Monday, April 15, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Well, I had thought from reading the info page on the product I bought, that the included installation gear was somehome "plug and play." So I expected the harness would have attachments on one end that clicked into the factory harness, and then attachments on the other end that clicked into the receiver. I did not read anything about having to splice wires to make it work.... But this was my first install, so what do I know. Anyway, it actually went pretty smooth- with decent instructions, and thank goodness for color coded wires. Oh, and there were wires left off on both sides that just didn't go to anything at all. It was certainly worth what I paid for it, (free with radio purchase)
Pros:
Free with purchase.
Cons:
Step One, splice the blue wire with the white dashes, to the blue wire with the white stripe (or is it just the blue wire with no markings???)... Repeat this process dozens of times...

Not exciting or glamorous but...

Written By Chris, Appleton, WI on Saturday, April 13, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
As my title says, this product is not glamorous, or exciting or high tech. It just does it's job perfectly. The plug end was a dead perfect match for my 2007 Focus. The wire gauge was identical to that from my head unit. The wire insulation cut clean for my wire stripper without stretching and tolerated the heat of soldiering. Color coding was a close enough match to my head unit that there was absolutely no confusion.
Pros:
Does what it is supposed to perfectly.
Cons:
None.

Bulletproof

Written By GunSlngr201, Vass, NC on Tuesday, January 08, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Made my install a breeze. If you're complaining about having to splice wires then you should just drop the coin and take your rig in to have it done by someone that's going to use this same harness and connect it the same way and charge you for it. Was able to use three of the empty slots on my harness to dial in my steering wheel connections instead of splicing into the backside. Customer service was dead on and emailed me a second diagram pinpointing the locations for the steering connections. Tell me who else will do that for you??
Pros:
Made install a breeze

Instructions were pretty good and did not have trouble making the connections. It looks like there could be a plug and play harness since all of my connections were the same color on both sides of connections.
Pros:

Plug and play instead of connecting a bunch of wires would be much nicer

Some assembly required

Written By Wise Soothsayer, McKinney, TX on Tuesday, December 04, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Connectors and wire appear to be good quality. Perfect fit with the factory harness. Be prepared for the three most hated words in the guy's vocabulary ... "some assembly required..." You get a connector with unterminated wires. The radio will have the other connector. You will have to either solder and tape/shrink tube or crimp connectors on the cable. At least 10 wires. Not a hard job but needs to be neat especially if you are tight on space behind the radio.
Pros:
One-stop shop to get wiring supplies. Fit well and looks professional.

Great wiring harness. When I read the instructions, it warned the colors may not match, that whould have cost me another 5 minutes, but when I got ready to label everything, the colors did match with my JVC. Matched them all up by colors, made and soldered the conections at my desk, then everything plugged right up. GREAT item.
Pros:
Perfect fit for my F150 and JVC
Cons:
No problems or issues at all.

The only good thing is that the harness fits into the car harness, however whoever produces this product need to fix the way the wires hook up to radio harness. One should not have to splice into the car audio wires to install a radio. Poorly designed product because it doesn't fully work with a Hyundai vehicle or Kenwood stereo.

To start, I hate messing with anything electrical. Especially auto wiring. After receiving this harness with my Pioneer head unit, I decided to pre assemble both ends of the before I tried the install. I was shocked at how easy installation was. In the past I had always tried to wire everything from inside the car. Doh*

Anyway, the thing works. What more needs to be said?

Easy to attach to radio harness...

None..

average rating because the harness was well constructed, just not what was suggested by the configurator. I entered my car correctly but received the civilian harness. Product support didn't help, so I ended up getting the correct harness elsewhere.
Pros:

Cons:
not for the Interceptors. this was made for the civilian Crown Vics.

I needed this for my install in a 2006 Hyundai Sonata. If you have a Premium System with factor subwoofer you will need to splice the pink/white wire from the car side harness to turn the sub on that powers all speakers. It wasn't as easy as I thought. Or just call tech service, I did they were great.
