Metra 70-7552 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.

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.

Good multipurpose connector

Written By Craig, Albuquerque, NM on Tuesday, November 18, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Crutchfield supplied this connector for interconnecting my Nissan Versa's OEM radio connector to the Pioneer SPH-DA120 AppRadio 4's pigtail connector. It provides the correct color coordinated wiring for easy hookup to the Pioneer's pigtail. Made installation easy and professional.

Pros: Easy and properly marked/colored wires. Makes for easy installation.

Cons: Not any.

Good wiring harness

Written By Joe T, Albuquerque, NM on Monday, September 22, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Well built with all the connections most people want.

Pros: All the wires to hook up my unit were included and the documentation explained them well.

Cons: The wires needed to hook up the SWC interface were not included and I had to cut into the wiring harness to get to them, I guess this stops people from calling what do I do with these wires.

Worked excellent in my 2014 Subaru WRX!!!

Written By Mike, Rochester, N.Y. on Thursday, August 28, 2014

To everyone complaining about this harness NOT having the three SWC wires, and giving it bad reviews based on the fact: STOP BEING LAZY!!! I installed this on my 2014 Subaru WRX. NO ISSUES AT ALL! Do I have my steering wheel controls anymore? No. But it does not kill me to reach over with my right hand and change the volume or track or to answer a call., or use the remote that comes with it. Metra does NOT specify that it has the SWC control wires contained within the harness; why would you just assume it does? If it's that big of a deal to ya, grab some pins and add them yourself. Stop being lazy people. This is a good harness and a good product. Stop your crying. Everything on the harness works excellent.

Metra Wiring Harness

Written By Jack, Colorado on Monday, August 11, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've been using Metra wiring harnesses for many years, and I wouldn't even attempt to install a car stereo without them. I spend a little extra time soldering the Metra harness to the stereo's plug harness, and I have always ended up with nice, clean installations.

Pros: Color-coded wires are fairly universal and consistent. Instructions are very clear and easy to follow. Really simplifies car stereo installation.

Cons: This particular harness (Metra 70-7552) works with Infinity, Nissan, Subaru, and Suzuki. I am guessing that each of the manufactures has a different style of antenna plug, which might explain why an additional antenna harness is necessary. However, it would be nice to have the antenna harness integrated with the main harness.

Ahhh - its a harness. What more could go wrong

Pros: 1. Works

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Used this adapter many times in the past. Only reason for 4 stars is the lack of the EXTRA wires needed in newer vehicles for options like SWC,

Pros: Easy to use and connect

Cons: not fully populated connector. Need to add additional pins/wires depending on vehicle, use and replacement unit.

Works great minus no antenna adapter or ground connection.

Pros: Fits

Cons: No ground connection, need additional antenna connector, and some wires needed to be re configured to turn on my CD Player

Crutchfield response on Friday, June 13, 2014 Customer's only order with us, #40658535, placed May 25th. Customer placed order over the internet. He did not specify what he was connecting to (HU), so he wasn't told automatically on his order what he would need. Further, on our website it says, "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." The information was out there. Somehow he missed it or misunderstood. What do we do about this review? Can't think of what I'd do except maybe have sales call him and ask him if he still needs the ground connection and antenna connector and explain why he didn't get them.

Subaru WRX 09 Install, not an easy install with Steering Wheel control

Written By Anonymous, Minneapolis, MN on Tuesday, April 29, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I received this harness free with my Kenwood Head Unit. I previously purchased a Metra ASWC-1 Universal Steering Wheel Control Interface. Unless I cut into my Subaru WRX 2009's oem cable to connect the Interface, this harness did not aid in the installation. This harness is missing the 3 wires for Audio Steering Wheel Controls.

Pros: Works great if you are not going to use the oem steering wheel audio buttons.

Cons: Works great if you are not going to use the oem steering wheel audio buttons.

Harness for Nissan

Written By Greg, Florida on Tuesday, March 18, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Everything was color coded exactly on the radio harness...match up - twist - solder - wire nut. The onlt thing I would suggest is to add the following statement...NOTE: The OEM radio has two additional plug in harness that you will not be using...(especially if you do not have steering wheel controls)

Pros: Fits and color coded

Cons: NOTE: The OEM radio has two additional plug in harness that you will not be using...should be mentioned in the instructions

Missing pins-Very dissastisfied

Written By Dave, New Jersey on Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This harness was missing pins needed to install steering wheel controls without cutting wires. Very cheap. In addition, the service from Crutchfield when I called to ask what to do was poor as well, telling me my only option was to cut and splice.

A local store sells these harnesses (I needed this in a hurry) so I went there, cut open another harness, and took the pins I needed and put it in my harness.

Considering I paid a premium for my receiver on Crutchfield, and I received poor accessories and service...I do not recommend purchasing from Crutchfield for the customer service, like I did.

Tight fit for me, but works

Written By JoeB, Oklahoma City, OK on Thursday, December 05, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It works well, however, it was extremely tight fit for my unit... got the Kenwood DDX790 for my wife's 2012 Nissan Xterra. If this is your set up, you will have to remove the dash and work with it to get the unit to fit. One thing on the documentation, it is a little unclear what to do with the double-din mounting brackets... basically, you snap them into the sides of the opening for your unit. The fit of your head unit, holds the brackets in place, and then you attach to the unit with screws.

Pros: perfect fit for my 2012 Nissan Xterra

Cons: Documentation is a little unclear, tight fit with DDX790

Cut corners by Metra fforce you to cut wires

Written By D. Swords, Raleigh, NC on Tuesday, December 03, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This harness is great for most of the wired connections that you need for an aftermarket head unit. Unfortunately, Metra continues to sell this harness with wires missing that are needing for connecting steering wheel control buttons. Why go to the trouble of making an incomplete wiring harness? In order to connect the the steering wheel controls, you STILL have to cut factory harness wires and hard wire them to the steering wheel interface module.

Pros: -Easy color coding that matches up to OEM harness wiring. -Allows you to connect an aftermarket head unit without cutting any factory wires (with caveats pertaining to steering wheel controls)

Cons: -Missing wires/pins for steering wheel controls

Good if you don't have steering wheel controls

Written By M_D_Blackwell, Parma, OH on Wednesday, August 21, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This harness is a good replacement if you don't use steering wheel controls and intend on using the Axxess ASWC-1 adapter. It doesn't have some of the pins (wires), that the ASWC-1 requires, which means you have to splice-into the wiring harness in your car.

I was fortunate to find a gentleman in GA who sells adapters with the missing pins, so I ended-up not using this one.

Pros: Good if not using steering wheel controls.

Cons: Missing pins needed for steering wheel control adapter.

First time Install

Written By Liskrig, Mass on Monday, May 20, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've never attempted to install a radio in my car before. This is a nice product for a beginner like me, the wires are pre cut (cut, and pulled a bit) which made the actual wiring of the harness to the receiver very fast as I only had to stip one set of wires. The harness fit very well into the plug, and does not feel like it will ever come loose (even on Mass roads). Great product from a company that stands behind their name.

Pros: Good quality pre-cut/stripped solid fit

Cons: none really

Almost Perfect

Written By Kyle B, Fogelsville, PA on Thursday, May 16, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works perfectly and made the after market install VERY easy. After having done several of these installs, I wish they also included the pins for the steering wheal controls as that would make the install even smoother, provide a better connection option, and help minimize the amount of wire work that has to be done while in the car (can be done ahead of time outside of the car).

Pros: Moves much of the wire work outside of the car at a desk where it's more comfortable to work. Makes the install much easier. Easy to convert back to factory/no permanent alterations.

Cons: Doesn't cover steering wheal controls too.

Does not contain ALL pins

Written By SubieCubed, Central PA on Thursday, May 02, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It confuses me why they wouldn't just include all pins for this harness. I know some people wouldn't need them all but they could just tape those wires off. Instead they only include the basic pins and make it a pain in the "you know what" for the people that need those extra wires.

Pros: Made hooking up the speakers and power simple

Cons: Does not contain the pins for the steering wheel controls. I had to splice into the factory harness to hook up the steering wheel controls :'(

Cons: The only confusion I had was to combine the two wiring diagrams from two instructions. But I don't know how else they would do it.

just what I needed

The wire colors even matched the ones on my Alpine head unit's harness. Plugged in fine to the Nissan vehicle-side connector (had to push the locking tab down to get the two to go together, but it popped back up into place like it's supposed to). So nice to have removable harnesses that you can take inside and solder on a bench (assuming your head unit has a removable harness, which mine does).

Pros: wire colors, perfect fit

Cons: none

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The wiring harness fits like it should, but if they would have included two more wires in the harness, I could have tapped my steering wheel controller into the wiring harness extensions, instead of splicing into the main harness. Two simple wires would have made this product awesome, but instead the ports in the plug were left empty.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The harness was easy to match up. I did get a little confused with the instructions, but once I talked to a Tech it was easier than I expected

Pros: Everything

Cons: The harness instructions a little confusing. The instructions state the colors of the wire might not match but after speaking to a Tech the wires matched up by color.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I missed this in the detailed info, even though they mention needing a 3rd party module to maintain steering wheel controls, this harness adaptor doesn't include the wires in the plug, so you'll still need to tap into the factory harness.

If you're buying this for a Subaru,there is a better harness that includes the Steering Wheel Control wires, which I've now bought to avoid cutting the factory harness. As cheap as wire is, this harness should have wires in each plug even if it add a $1 or 2 to the price.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

When my receiver first came I jumped right in and started with the installation. I am really into installing my own stuff and pretty good at it. I couldn't understand why I was having problems. I could hear the radio, but the volume was very low. I called a tech at Crutchfield, and discovered I had received the wrong harness. He sent me the right one at no charge. Once it came I wired it up in 10 mins. I installed the stereo in 15 mins, and it worked like a charm. The harness was so easy because the color coding is so good. Everything matches up so easily. Crutchfield has been my source for car audio since the mid 80's.

Pros: Super easy installation

Cons: None

Does not Support SWC on 2012 Subaru Forester

Written By Pete_VT, Northwest Vermont on Sunday, December 23, 2012

Maybe for the basic installation it would be okay. It was the correct connector. My problem was the support for steering wheel controls. This harness is missing the necessary wires to accommodate the SWC controller I needed to use. I was instructed to tap into the wires on the back of the car connector. This kind of defeats the point of a wire harness. After a fairly simple search of the internet I was able to find a source for the needed harness. Unfortunately I had to pay for it and shipping.

Pros: Correct connector

Cons: does not support steering wheel controls.

Work on 2013 Subaru Forester W/O Nav

Written By cgerald1, Nashua, NH on Sunday, December 09, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This DOES work on a 2013 Subaru Forester W/O NAV!! This harness requires a lot of force to get it engaged into the factor harness but it did all go together and worked fine. The pin outs are correct for the factor harness!! Overall I was very happy.

Pros: All the pin outs were correct on the 2013 Subaru Forester W/O nav!!

Cons: It would be really nice if they left the pins in for the Steer wheel controls. Its a pain having to splice into the factory harness.

Did not have all the pins needed for 2011 STi

Written By Sione, San Jose, CA on Thursday, September 13, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This became more headache then I wanted, turned out there was 3 Pins that was not part of this connector that was needed for the Steering Wheel Control. If this connector had all its pin wired up, I would of gave this a 5 star rating, but since it was missing PINs I needed to hook up the SWC to my Kenwood deck on my 2011 STi, I ended splicing in the factory wire-harness, I needed Pin 4, 13 and 14 which was not there on this kit.

Pros: Crutchfield gave it to me for free for my deck I bought from them.

Cons: Not all pins are wired in this connector.

Nice!

Fit 2008 Xterra

Written By Tyler, Denver, CO on Thursday, June 21, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This fit our 2008 Nissan Xterra and matched our new basic receiver just fine. I would suggest wiring this up to the receiver cables before starting the install, as it's quite a separate event from the install itself. I connected mine by weaving the wires, dropping some solder on, and then wrapping in electric tape. No problems so far, even after a long off-roading trip (lots of shaking and vibrations).

Made the Install Very Easy

Written By AlanJ, Florida on Saturday, June 16, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wired this up to the Kenwood head-unit the night before and it made installing the Kenwood head-unit a breeze. The wires I didn't use out of the radio were options not present in my Altima, so all major connections were as presented in the wiring diagram supplied with the radio. I used Posi-connectors and that made the hook-up simple and secure; I usually like to solder connections but they're difficult to un-do, whereas you can screw and unscrew the posi-connectors as often as needed.

Pros: Exact fit to factory connector, wire colors matched the radio's harness.

Cons: none.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This worked, but it didn't have the wires to hook up the steering wheel control (so I still ended up having to cut into the harness for that wire). Fix that (add the steering wheel control wires) and it's perfect.

Pros: Fits and has most of the wires you need.

Cons: Does not have the wires to hook up your steering wheel controls.

Makes for a nice and easy wiring interface on after market radios. Wires are color coded to match those normally found on the radio connector.

Pros: Comes with common wires already installed in the correct locations to interface an after market Radio with the Nissan factory harness.

Cons: This adapter does not include the wires needed to hook up an AXXESS ASWC or other steering wheel controls interface.

Nissan 2008 Frontier CC 4WD

Written By Walter W, Colorado Springs on Sunday, April 15, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product and critical to a successful install. The black wire that says "chassis Ground" (for Subaru only) was taped off and not used. We had no extra amp so the blue/white - amp turn on wire was taped off. All other wires on this harness matched easily to the Pioneer AVH2400BT harness. A back up camera hot red switched wire was piggy backed to the red on this harness along with the red from the radio harness. The yellow wire from the XM tuner harness along with the constant power yellow from the Pioneer were both attached to the yellow of this Nissan receiver wire harness.

Pros: Simple solder, plug, and play. Thank you to Crutchfield for including the correct harnesses to match our vehicle.

Cons: None.

Great wiring harness. People that say it needs to updates need to understand that each vehicle has the steering wheel wires in different places. So great harness as I have used it on a lot of different cars, I usually have a spare and just cut the pins out and install into the corresponding holes for the steering wheel controls.

Pros: Great piece

Cons: None
