Overview

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

Metra 70-8405 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:

  • 12V constant power
  • 12V switched power
  • chassis ground
  • power antenna turn-on
  • amplifier turn-on
  • illumination
  • left front speaker +/-
  • right front speaker +/-
  • left rear speaker +/-
  • right rear speaker +/-

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.

Exactly what was need. Good quality.

Wiring harness for my 2004 Chevy Aveo was easier than I thought . This was the first time I soldered ANYTHING. The instructions said don't go by the colors but they were color coordinated. I soldered and shrink wrapped the wires and it took about 30 minutes. Great Product.

Pros: Easy to follow instructions

Cons: Soldering required.

2005 Suzuki Verona
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Worked well in our Suzuki Verona. Spliced, soldered, and heat shrunk the wires to the radio wiring. Had the perfect amount of wire to make hooking up & stowing the small amount of extra wire in the dash. Easy too follow directions, & everything works as its supposed to.

Pros: It fits the factory harness, easy to follow directions, and everything worked.

Cons: It didn't install itself?

Would not install a new system without one of these. It's much easier to mate up this connector with the one with your new system at the workbench than trying to soldier and heatshrink things under a dash.

Without the wiring harness, this would have been a pain to wire in. Soldered the wiring harness to the radio's wires and everything worked when it was plugged in. The job was a breeze! Thanks Crutchfield for providing a great product!

This Item was a perfect fit for my 2004 Chevy Aveo! It even had three extra wires that my basic stereo set-up didnt need, but if i had an amp and sub they would of been necessary. Everything just fit so perfect. Very easy to install with the directions Crutchfield supplied. A MUST BUY FOR A QUICK AND SIMPLE INSTALL!! had the wiring completed and ready to install in less then 10 min

2008 Aveo

2008 Chevrolet Aveo5

I got this with my stereo order for my 2008 Chevy Aveo hatchback. Was easy to install, instructions were easy to follow. After reading instructions, it took me about 25 minutes to make all the connections, it was just amazingly easy to do. Also the instructions told me exactly how to remove the factory stereo, it was truly a breeze. I did the wire harness in the house, spent about 20 minutes total in the car, I'm talking taking the old radio out and installing the new one. Don't be intimidated, this was EASY!

Pros:

Cons:

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.
