Metra 70-8113 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.

Installation Note: This harness uses your factory amplifier; your new stereo must have two pairs of preamp outputs to connect this harness.

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.

Dimmer wire (orange)

Written By db, Maryland on Sunday, September 20, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Perfect fit...

Pros: It fits the OEM as it's suppose to. EZ hook-up...

Cons: My concern is the harness doesn't have the wire to connect to the vehicles' dash/instrument panel dimmer wire (orange)...

Installation took way longer then it needed to.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm not a pro, but I've installed my fair share of aftermarket radios. when I wired everything together and gave it test run, I was getting very bad feedback out of the drivers speaker. this was my first experience installing a radio with factory amps (usually have my own) so I thought it was something I did. after over 2 hours of troubleshooting a possible bad ground or bad RCA Cable, I noticed that 2 of the pins in the adaptor that plugs into the factory plug were "shorter" than all the others. I took very small needle nose and pulled them up but they kept pushing back down when plugged back in. I called Crutchfield and they are send me a new one without any hesitation which is why I give it 3 stars. I'm sure I just got a defective harness and accidents happen. Just caused a lot of unnecessary troubleshooting.

Pros: easy instructions, clear labeling

Cons: just got a bad apple and wish it didn't waste so much time

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I initially expected to review the harness higher because its apparent good construction, tight fit and easy to interpret instructions. Unfortunately, I have to subtract points because of loose low level connections.

Pros: simple instructions.

Cons: low level connections were loose. Crutchfield Tech Support was quick to forward a replacement harness.

Just Great!!

Written By merlin, Palo Alto CA on Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Made my installation of a JVC KW-HDR81BT in a 2003 Toyota Highlander Limited with JBL premium sound easy. Although I had to search different forums before I went on with the install. There are some things that the instructions that came with the product does not tell you. But once the install was done the sound is many times better than the original JBL Head Unit( although I miss the 6 CD changer that bit the dust). I decided to use the original factory Amp because I was not willing to tear some carpet and the back of the second row passenger seat to get to it and use a different harness, which I bought just in case, and ended up for spare parts , I took one of its pins and used it for port 12 to dim the lights after the ignition is on. And now I get to enjoy beautiful music for my long highway travels. Motor On!!

Pros: Don't have to cut a single wire of the original factory harness, get to use your original JBL external Amp.

Cons: Have to do extra research on forums reagarding some missing features and how to make it work.

I struggled to find a way to install my radio into my 2003 Camry with a factory amp until I entered my car model onto Crutchfield and this harness popped up. It worked great, and I didn't have the problem that many people said they had concerning illumination. It worked fine without having to find a workaround.

Pros: Easy to install, everything worked.

2003 Camry XLE - Easy install

Written By OldMan, Tennessee on Saturday, May 31, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a quality harness that made the installation of a JVC double DIN receiver very easy. My only complaint is that it doesn't have an illumination wire, which some reviewers claim the Camry provides. Wanting an easy, quick installation, I just installed this harness as intended without trying to identify the illumination wire in the factory harness.

Pros: Quality construction. Easy installation.

Cons: No illumination wire.

Wiring requires connections

Written By Larry, Florida on Wednesday, September 11, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had to call tech support to confirm the wires that had to be soldered together to complete the installation. Diagrams could be clearer and instruction could be much better. The harness did not support the dash light dimmer circuit nor did it allow the two antenna connections on my Toyota to be used. The functions supported seam to work fine.

Pros: Connectors fit well.

Cons: Had to solder wires together, not plug & play. Did not have connection for dimmer circuit. Dual antenna for Toyota is NOT supported.

Toyota Harness for Pioneer stereo

Written By Rayland, Louisiana on Sunday, May 19, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Harness worked great and really simplified wiring conversion for installation. Only one small comment, there was no wire included to tie to the lighting wire that dims the screen when the parking/headlights are on- had to splice one but all other major connections were very easy to match to the radio wiring harness. Used RCA plugs for the four speaker channels.

Pros: See above, plugged directly into Toyota harness without problem.

Cons: Had to test and splice dimmer wire but still far easier than splicing all of them.

worked well for connecting an Alpine Alpine CDE-137BT with 2002 camry

Written By Jim, Columbia, MO on Tuesday, March 05, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Like other reviewers have said, there is no wire for the dimmer function in the car harness. I researched this online and discovered that on the 2002 camry, the solid green wire (pin 2) in the Toyota wiring harness) will dim the head unit lights when you turn the headlights on. This is the "Illumination" wire on the Alpine head unit harness. You just need to splice a jumper wire into the solid green wire in the Toyota harness and put a bullet connector on it so it will plug into the Alpine Illumination lead.

Also, I read online that if you connect to the green and white wire in the Toyota harness, then the head unit lights will dim when you adjust the dimmer control on the dash lights.

Also, I discovered to just add the "amp shield ground" black and white wire in with the other chassis ground wires.

I hope this helps.


I hope this helps.

Pros: Works great in connecting the Alpine head unit into the 2002 camry with JBL amp and no navigation system

Cons: The illumination/dimmer wire is not provided, you have to splice one in.

Written By Great harness, Cincinnati, Oh on Friday, December 21, 2012

This harness work great if you want to intergrate the factory JBL Amp that comes with the car, but if you want to bypass the factory Amp to put another Amp in your car you need the Metra 70-1761 harness also sold by Crutchfield.

Pros: Easy to use

Cons: Crutchfield need to explain to use the other harness (Metra 70-1761) if you want to bypass the factory amp to use another amp.

Works as promised

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was a little confused when reading the instructions with the wiring harness and applying them to the instructions with the JVC Stock unit I was installing. There are several wires NOT used when hooking up a new head unit to the factory amps/speakers. Once I figured it out and taped off the "unused" wires, it was straight forward.

Pros: Free with the unit

Cons: Documentation may be a bit vague.

Prompt, efficient and exceptional Customer Service

Written By Andres, Ohio on Saturday, August 11, 2012

I bought a kit to install an after market stereo, which included the most detailed explanation of the installation process. As i began the process, I greatly appreciated the visual instructions and reader friendly step by step process. When I realized I had not bought the wiring harness I immediately called the Crutchfield customer service with a simple inquiry of which wiring harness I would need for my specific car. I was impressed with their exceptional knowledge of my car and their response. When I told the customer service rep I was ready to place my order, he said not to worry, that Cruttchfield would ship the wiring harness free of charge and that I should expect its arrival in my house in 2 days!!!!!! Needless to say I was impressed and greatly appreciated their service!

Pros: Everything I ordered arrived in time, and customer service was great and extremely supportive.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit makes life much easier....almost. I think I just got a poor harness (and user error on my part). The power antenna wire came out of my kit when I tried to connect it to the radio harness coming from the car and I could not get this to work and ended up running down to a Box store to buy a new harness. Part of the problem was that you have to connect the two blue wires or you get no sound (if figured I had thee antenna plug in the back plus one of the bad). If the wire would have stayed and I connected them all I am sure it would have been fine but for free with the deck AND the install kit I am not complaining. I could have called to get another one I am sure but it was trying to surprise my wife and need one now.

Pros: makes life much easier

Cons: Connections of the wires intot hte harness could be better.

The biggest problem was the harness doesn't come with a dimmer pin. So I researched my vehicle's wiring schematics and located the vehicle side dimmer and spliced in.

Worked like a charm with the factory amp in my 2000 Avalon. The head unit I bought only had 2 RCA outputs, so I had to use y cables to combine 4 into 2. Works great, except I lost front to rear fading. Didn't need that anyway, so I'm pleased and the new unit sounds great.

works but is the wrong way to go

Written By feniks, Wallington, NJ on Sunday, October 16, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

first of all, the factory amp adapter does NOT have the illumination wire hooked up, so you need to splice into the green wire on Toyota amp plug. second and most important it does NOT make any sense to actually use the factory amp since it's like what 10 years old and inferior quality already by now when compared to new head unit's built-in amp? I had static noise, background noise and other problems when using the factory amp! nobody at Crutchfield suggested that I should have tried to bypass it by using a different integration adapter (solaras have bypass plugs behind the dash, so it's an easy plug and play to bypass the amp)

I ended up buying a Scosche amp bypass adapter and hooked up my JVC head unit straight to speakers, zero problems now, crystal clear sound. also worth noting is that amp bypass adapter actually has the illumination wire terminal hooked up (amp integration adapter does NOT so I had to splice).

Works, but...

Written By MarkS, Marietta, GA on Monday, January 24, 2011

This harness works, but as others have said, there's missing wires. My '03 Solara
Convertible with the JBL Premium sound system had more features and wires than this
harness had wires for. I had to first figure out which wire in the car's harness was the
dimmer (white - green stripe), and cut it behind the plug to splice it manually. Then I had
two ground wires and only one ground wire for the radio. Crutchfield tech advised I splice
all three together (worked, no hum-thankfully). There's also no way (that I was able to
discern with the new radio) to control the the antenna for just the radio...the power
antenna is always up if the radio is on--the factory unit would put the antenna down if a
tape or cd was playing (I think this is more a limitation of the radio). The JBL system has
a crossover in the system that takes the signal and pushes the bass to the
subwoofer...there's no need for a subwoofer pre-out connection (which this harness
doesn't have) for the Toyota.

Written By KennethB, Houston, TX on Wednesday, December 15, 2010

This harness wired up the major components. But it does not have a lead for the
dimmer control. Why in 2010 Crutchfield would be selling a harness that does not
capture this wire I have no idea.

So keep in mind you will need to have some taps on hand so you can connect you're
radio's dimmer wire to the car harness' dimmer wire.

Written By broderp, Dayton, Ohio on Saturday, July 11, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I would rate this a five star product if it wasn't for two things:

1. The harness is missing a wire for the DIMMING feature found in most radios.

If you want your display to dim when parking lights and headlights are on you can't do this with this harness. You will need to buy a second harness just for the wires, and tear it apart to get the wire so you can snap it into the first harness.

2. I bought a harness (same type , but for different car from crutch field almost a year ago) and it had the same issue. Seems like my concerns fell on deaf ears as this newer harness still is missing the wire.

Crutchfields price is GREAT, but when you factor in the cost of two, plus the time and effort to tear one apart (it is difficult to do they are made quite well) it's not as good deal anymore since shipping cost more than taxes (unless you get if free with a radio purchace.)

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I went to a local car stereo specialty store and had the owner tell me there was no way to use the factory amp with an aftermarket stereo. When I ordered this I wondered if it would cause any buzzing, but there was not even a hint of it. Thank you Crutchfield for being the best resource anywhere for helping me install my car stereo myself. Each car is a new challenge and I couldn't do it without your expert advise.

The problem with both the harness wiring and the Alpine connection diagram is neither shows which RCA male fittings actually connect to which female connections on the unit. The installation page needs to show the rear of the unit enlarged with the actual female fittings, such as left upper fitting is shown using the gray male fitting,etc. The back of the Alpine is not labeled as was the Blauplunkt I used in my other car. Perhaps advising Alpine of this problem would get them to stamp the terminals on the plate. In the meantime, your one page guide could be changed to do this.

a must have

Made installing an Alpine IVA-W205 in my 2001 Sequoia with factory JBL system a breeze. Everything plugged right in.

Made installation a snap, a must if you have a factory installed amp.

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: Neither installation tools, hardware, nor accessories are included, but sold separately. Please see the Accessories tab for recommendations and 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.

Factory Amp Note: This harness includes RCA connections (instead of speaker wire leads) to connect the aftermarket head unit's preamp outputs to your vehicle's factory amp. Your aftermarket head unit must be equipped with front & rear preamp outputs.

The Crutchfield Car Selector: Please visit the Crutchfield Car Selector for your specific type of vehicle.
