Metra 70-7001 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 saves installation time since you won't have to cut factory wires individually, and this 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:

Note: You'll need to make a ground connection between your new receiver and your car's metal chassis.

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.

Handy!

Written By Sean Matt, Clermont, FL on Friday, March 14, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I'm very bad at wiring so this was a godsend.

It has a sufficient wiring length to make up for my multiple errors in stripping and cutting. Everything is nice and color coded with text (English) labels on them.
Pros:
- Very useful - Simple install - Good wire length - Good wire gauge - Study build
Cons:
- The wire colors are a bit faded compared to the stock wiring and the wiring on the head unit harness.

Receiver Wire Harness Review

Written By Daniel, Peyton, CO on Wednesday, February 12, 2014
 
This wiring harness worked as advertised, but I had to make several splices to get it to function. That was mainly due to the onboard amplifier that I had to bypass. Not the fault of the harness, just the planning from the manufacturer. I would have expected a plug-in harness that would take care of the multiple splices.

Great swingeing harness. Just doesn't have the extra plug. I've got a E COM message up where the old display for my radio showed at.
Cons:
The old radio display shows E COM now. My lights around my ac controls don't work anymore. Think it may have something to do with not having the other plug not sure yet.

Great harness but even better tech support

Written By digger, Sugarland on Saturday, June 08, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I am sure this harness would have worked perfectly since the previous four I have purchased did. Unfortunately for me, the previous owner of my vehicle had yanked out the original factory harness. So, after meticulously soldering all of the connections to the radio harness I discovered my dilemma when removing the old factory stereo.

Called tech support and they advised me to hard wire the unit and emailed me a wiring diagram for my vehicle. I was able to continue the installation and finish in a couple of hours and everything worked on the first go round.. Thanks Crutchfield Tech support!
Pros:
Tech support
Cons:
NONE....except for the previous owner of the vehicle

Receiver Wire Harness

Written By Tanker_Boy, Kansas City, MO on Friday, August 03, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Well well! Very easy. I've installed a lot of car stereos at my age of 42...From the simplest of 70 Nova Hot/Ground/Speaker decks up to decks going into a 2009 Escalade. Cannot go wrong with this product! If you can read, you can do this. Everything marked & colored exactly matching the new receivers' wiring. Cut,Crimp,Plug & Play! My 10 year old son could have done this. I WILL be a returning customer! Thanks Crutchfield!!
Pros:
Ease of color & wire matching, ready cut wire ends, instructions for removing & replacing specific stereo. Which wires are NOT used clearly marked. I could go on, but there's not much else to do!
Cons:
No "Cons" whatsoever! A+

This harness made the wiring for the replacement stereo much easier to handle. I liked how everything was color coordinated and the diagram was easy to read and understand. The only thing I wish they had with this was the wire caps needed to cover the wire connections. If you see my review for the stereo installation kit, I'd rather have had the wire caps instead of the useless installation kit.
