Overview

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

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. You can also call an Advisor for more information.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

While these aren't necessary they save a ton of time. Being able to essentially wire the stereo outside of the dash is a godsend. The wires match the aftermarket head unit color scheme so no having to refer to wiring diagrams. It's pretty much plug and play.

Pros: Easy. Prevents knuckle busting inside the dash.

Cons: None.

If this harness were pinned for the steering wheel controller, then I would be able to install the steering wheel adaptor myself.

Perfect. Second time for second car I got these from Crutchfield (First for Impreza, now my wife's Versa) . Not necessary, but if you don't like to cut-strip-splice with your hands inside the dash this is a life saver!!!

Pros: Fits perfectly, makes for a super easy install.

Cons: None.

Kit for Subaru

Written by: jrkeane1 from Charlotte, NC on January 11, 2016

2011 Subaru Forester
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This adapter worked well, especially if you're replacing a head unit without steering wheel controls. All pins are not passed through this connector, so in my application I still had to tap into the car's wiring harness to connect 3 wires for the steering wheel controller adapter. And because this is designed for both Subaru and Nissan (possibly others as well) the wire harness adapter only slides over the car's wire harness. There wasn't a clip hole for the car's harness to lock into. So over time if there was enough vibration there is a possibility the harness could come loose, but is unlikely.

Pros: Fit the car

Cons: All pins were not passed through so steering wheel control adapter had to be wired into the car's harness. Universal design doesn't have a spot for the car's harness to clip into and lock in place.

Works for 2012 Forester- Don't Ignore Blue/White

Written by: Jeff from Pennsylvania on December 31, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Super-simple and all colors and stripes matched the harness from a Kenwood head unit. BE CAREFUL...on the 2012 I don't have a power antenna retractor, but a fixed stubby roof antenna. THIS ANTENNA USES A POWER SIGNAL AMP. I looked at the blue/white wires and assumed it was for a motorized antenna and taped it off un-used from both the new head unit and this adapter. The result was zero AM reception. After some internet troubleshooting the light bulb came on. After connecting blue/white from the head unit to blue /white on the adapter (imagine that), it was solved. The instructions could be better at addressing this easy point of confusion with a note about the antenna booster needing power even when you don't have a motorized antenna. Otherwise it's great.

Pros: Works

Cons: Instructions could address blue/white and boosters even when no motorized antenna is present in Subaru.

Written by: Jeremy A from New York, New York on October 24, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It's as simple and functional as any typical wiring harness. It seems to mate to my subaru's audio system just fine. Unfortunately this one doesn't have the three additional pins/wires for the steering wheel controls. There are two signal wires and one ground wire that need to be connected to something like an Axxxes Interface ASWC-1 if you want those controls.

Works like a champ 2010 XTerra

Written by: DanP from Florida on September 18, 2015

2010 Nissan Xterra
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Matched up with everything on the receiver harness of my Pioneer deck. A couple of things. The black ground wire that says "only Subaru" is exactly that - don't use it otherwise. The black ground wire on the Pioneer harness was considerably longer and easily reached both of the two screws easily accessible behind the stereo for grounding. The manual does mention this, but is not included in the package, but it is on the Crutchfield site. Just go to your "Orders" page and there is a link. If you require an antenna adapter with the blue wire, connect both the blue/white wires from your head unit and the vehicle harness Along With The Blue From The Antenna Adapter to the same butt connector or whatever you're using. This is not really specified. I did it that way and then called support the next day to confirm that was correct, and they did.

Pros: Works, color coding is all correct, labeled for exceptions even.

Cons:

Was able to attach my aftermarket Alpine to my 370Z with no issues. This harness also plays well with other aftermarket harnesses like the Pac-Audio steering wheel interface. Definitely makes the install easy so you can solder the connections at your work bench and then just clip the connector right into your car wiring.

Pros: Easy install. Works for most setups with great instructions.

Cons: None.

It does have all of the basics. If only it came with the backup camera wiring and the ability to use oem usb and aux locations, it will be great. But in all fairness not every vehicle has these functions and the company would lose money to put it on every basic harness. But we can all dream right.

Pros: Covers the basics

Cons: Only covers the basics

2008 Subaru Impreza
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Crutchfield sends you all the parts you'll need to do your own at-home install. This was my first time putting in an after market stereo on my own and it was pretty painless. I soldered my wires which I'd recommend. Just find a good online video and give yourself some time to make sure you do it right and you won't have any problems. You'll need your own soldering iron, flux, and solder which you can find at any craft or big-box store. Also get the heat shrink tubing to go around your solder joints. I used a blow dryer since I don't have a heat gun, it works. I'm a novice car person with no particular interest in car modification and just wanted Bluetooth and an AUX imput in my car. If I can do it, you can.

Pros: Fit just right in my Subaru, works great.

Cons: You'll need your own soldering iron, flux, and solder. Plus some heat shrink tubing. Match up all the wires and give yourself some time to make sure all the wires are connected.

Infiniti m45

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This harness is no way compatible with the Infiniti M models. I put my vehicle in the configuration again and it still told me that it is all it needed. Only when I chose a later model did it tell me that it wasn't compatible and the tech support agent I talked to wasn't helpful. Just wanted you to be aware that this will be a full custom install. I'm lucky enough to know how to find electrical wires in cars to make it work.

Pros: None

Cons: This needs to be removed from the chart

Average at best

Written by: Jim E from California on February 18, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I would rate this unit as average. If you are just using it to install a new stereo to your vehicle, I would give it a 5. Directions are clear cut and there is really no way to screw it up. If you need to keep your steering wheel controls, then I would rate this a 1. There are no wires coming out of the plug that you can tap into for the ASWC-1 steering wheel control adapter. This means tapping into the vehicles harness :(. Surely, since this adapter is supposed to be vehicle specific, all the wiring should be available.

Pros: Straightforward install for car stereos only

Cons: No wires in the harness to attach necessary external equipment such as steering wheel control adapters.

I assumed it was for a Suzuki vehicle only and thinking it was not going to be used, I cut the cable short. When I looked at the wiring diagram it was for the ground. Luckily I did not cut it too short. So I rated it a 3.

Of course you can splice, solder, twist, and check your own wires, but why? Do yourself a favour and buy a stereo for $120 from Crutchfield and get this harness for free. Take your new stereo harness off, match the wires with the attached diagram, and then once you're ready to install it'll be so much easier. Save the time, get one of these.

This wiring harness was nearly perfect for my 2015 Subaru WRX and Pioneer AVH-4000NEX. The one thing missing is that it doesn't have any of the wires required for the steering wheel controls. If you study the Axxess ASCW-1 wiring diagrams, it is possible to get them to work though. In my case, I bought a second wiring harness to harvest the wires that I needed.

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.

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 from Rochester, N.Y. on 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 from Colorado on 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.

Crutchfield response on 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.

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.

Missing pins-Very dissastisfied

Written by: Dave from New Jersey on December 17, 2013

2013 Subaru Impreza WRX STi
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.

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

2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STi
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

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.

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

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.

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.

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 from Northwest Vermont on 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

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

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!

No problem with install with this kit in my 09 Frontier. Definitely do wiring before doing install. I used the posi connectors and saved a good bit of time and they worked perfectly well. Colors were easy to match and instructions were fairly good.

Pros: Worked exactly as advertised

Fit 2008 Xterra

2008 Nissan Xterra
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).

Pros:

Cons:

Made the Install Very Easy

2010 Nissan Altima
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.

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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.
