Metra 70-7303 Receiver Wiring Harness

Overview

This vehicle-specific wiring harness makes connections between your new car stereo and your car's electrical system.

Metra 70-7303 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. You can also call an Advisor for more information.

Easy to use with reasonably clear directions--helped that the colors matched my head unit's wiring.

Keep 6 speakers working on a 4-channel stereo

Written by: Bob from Omaha, NE on June 1, 2016

2009 Kia Optima
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Harness eliminates any chance of crossing positive to negatives or vice versa. Additionally, if you have a speaker vehicle, this harness keeps all 6-speakers pumping out of aftermarket 4-channel stereos.

Pros: Easy install and all 6-speakers operate on four channel stereos.

Cons: None

2008 Hyundai Accent
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Product works great with 0 issues and the tech support team helped me with the wiring to the vehicle...

Pros: Quick connect, majority of the wires were color coordinated meaning connect directly to the same colored wire that went to the device.

Cons: Should have came with instructions on what wires would be left alone and which wires would need to be connected together, then connected to the unit wiring harness, would have saved time.

Good

2009 Hyundai Sonata
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Pin was in the wrong location. The red connector only has one wire in it, and it had to be relocated to pins over. Thanks to Crutchfield support who figured out where it needed to go. It is possible to push the pin out from the front and lock it in place in its new position.

Pros:

Cons: One wire in the wrong spot meant whole stereo didn't work.

2009 Hyundai Sonata
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This simplifies the wiring process a ton. I had extra wires that didn't get used, and that was a little confusing at first, but that's probably unavoidable since it would depend on the system you're setting up.

Pros: Makes installation much easier

Cons: Instructions could be clearer about how some wires won't be used in certain setups

Did What It Was Supposed To

Written by: AlanA from Kentucky on January 3, 2016

2010 Hyundai Sonata
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It worked as advertised

Pros: Workes

Cons: Instructions could be cleared as to which connector goes where. 3 factory connectors have to plug into 2 on the wiring harness. Would also be helpful to identify satellite antenna connector which doesn't get used when replacing the deck with a non-satellite model.

Worked great

Perfect Adapter for 2009 Hyundai Accent

2009 Hyundai Accent
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This adapter mates perfectly with the OEM radio connector in a 2009 Hyundai Accent. The connector locking mechanism holds it securely.

Pros: Mates perfectly. The wire color coding matches very well with the OEM wiring and the radio interface connector.

Cons: Takes some time to splice into the radio's interface assembly.

Nice match

The included instructions with the diagram were excellent. The requirement to attach one particular wire was not clear and had to call Crutchfield for assistance . . . they cleared it up quickly and got the unit operating properly.

Pins didn't line up!

Written by: Rob from Monroe, CT on January 24, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Part is physically correct (ie the harness fits the OEM harness), but the factory amp turn-on wire wasn't lined up to the correct port on the harness (2009 Kia Rondo). Only after hours of troubleshooting (and installing the PAC SOEM, which wasn't needed) was this revealed. In short - check to make sure the wire the harness is lined up to is actually connected to a wire on the OEM end - mine wasnt!

Pros:

Cons:

Good luck

2010 Kia Forte
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

There was no connector for power to the antenna preamp. They don't tell you the red connector isn't used. Without the wiring diagrams for the car, I don't think I could have made it work.

Pros: Barely adequate.

Cons: You have to have the wiring diagram for your vehicle.

2009 Kia Sedona
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Perhaps it has been 20 years since I last replaced a factory radio, but I did not expect to deal with so many different colored wires and crimping. My wife thought I just started brain surgery and gone way over my head. I was hoping to just connect this to this and to that. But in the end, it worked out despite having to make some executive, educated guessing.

Pros: It worked out in the end.

Cons: Lots of wires to crimp and caused stress, frustration and confusion

Not happy. On a better note, everything else we ordered was fantastic.

Pros: Nothing.

Cons: After having my rep check with the tech department to verify that this was the correct part for a 2008 Tucson, I was very disappointed to have to buy a new harness when a tech was installing the unit.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this for my 2009 Hyundai Elantra and it did not fit. The 2009 Elantra uses the 24 pin plug that the 2008 uses, so do not buy this for the 2009. Pull out the factory radio first before buying a plug online so you can make sure not to be stuck with something that doesn't fit.

Hands-on research

What's in the box?

Product Research

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 vehicles 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.
