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: This harness doesn't include connections for illumination or dimming, so you may need to make those connections manually, depending on your new receiver.
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.
I Couldn't have asked for an easier product to attach to the factory harness. Makes head deck installation capable by anyone.
Made connecting a piece of cake and allows me to put original stereo back it. Can't imagine not using these.
Pros: Ease of use.
Used these to install my JVC into Volvo S60. Connectors match up perfectly. Color coded wires matched up very well which made install quicker. The only issue with this is that they did not supply connections for the steering control (2 wires) which required me to splice into the OEM wires to finish the connection. They could have added these two wires to this harness as the corresponding pin slots were empty. Duh? Crutchfield tech support was invaluable to help me identify the wires needed for the final two wires that were missing from this harness.
Pros: Perfect connection to existing OEM harness
Cons: Missing connections for steering wheel connection wires.
Super simple. Everything went together like it should.
Pros: Ease of use.
Adapters make life sooooooo much easier!
Perfect connection for my 2001 Volvo S60. Used crimp caps to make wire connection. Butt connectors don't hold the hires together well enough.
Pros: Colors matched up with original wires. Wire tips pre-stripped for easy pull off
Works great for a Volvo S60!
Pros: Fits and works as intended. Comes with great instructions but could get away with no instructions- it's that easy.
Easy to plug in the stock radio harness
Great product don't try to instal a radio without it as this saves hours
Pros: Easy great instructions
couldn't have done it with out you!
This makes replacement of original radio wiring simple.
Pros: Color coded for easy install. Easy installation Quality comparable to original equipment
Piece wired right in and worked like a charm. Simple as that, just follow provided instructions.
Pros: Worked perfectly
i think the wire harness is perfect. had no issues with install and stereo sounds great.
Pros: easy plug in, easy hook up, no issues
Cons: none to be found
Plugs fit and Wire Colors matched up
Pros: Enabled me to solder up this and the radio harness in the basement instead of trying to make good connections in the Car
Cons: The Green connector only includes 4 wires, Constant Power, Keyed Power, Ground, Antenna Power
This harness works great! I was able to soldier the converter harness to the aftermarket stereo harness and make a flawless easy to connect and disconnect plug to the stock Volvo stereo harness. Now if I need to remove my stereo for any reason, all I have to do is unplug it instead of having to cut the wires and destroy the stock harness.
Pros: Easy connections, Able to soldier wires,
Too big to fit behind the radio....but I made it fit. Also, the remote wire didn't work to the subs, so I had to hook it up to the constant power....annoying but not to big a deal.
Pros: Good price
Cons: Way too big.
I was not able to use this harness. My 2007 Volvo S60 had way too little room behind the radio compartment to fit the large connectors. I ended having to cut all the connectors out (both the OEM and the harness connectors) and solder all the connections. Even then it was a tight fit!
Pros: It (would have) made the installation easy.
Cons: Would not fit in the space Volvo allocated between the radio compartment and the bulkhead.
This harness is necessary for the HU power, ground, ect. but you will need an additional harness for the factory amp interface found in the 99-03 Volvo S40's. Without this additional harness, only the dash tweeters will work. The alternative is bypassing the factory amp and running new speaker wire in a (slightly over-engineered) Volvo. Huge pain. You could cut the interface plug open and test wires untill you have sound in all four doors. Huge pain.
Pros: It does fit and works fine. It is the power, ground, remote and dash tweeters.
Cons: I wish I had known I would have to scour the web for the wierd extra harness for the door speakers to work. The factory amp interface is a strange cd changer -esque looking thing that is very difficult to find any kind of wiring diagram for. If you have a whole day to kill, bypassing the factory amp and running new speaker wire to the HU would work. The extra harness is much faster and a cleaner install overall in my opinion.
Pros: Easily adapts from Volvo antenna to JVC radio.
Cons: The plug that fits into the radio seemed a very little bit too small, so the fit wasn't as tight as I'd like. As I installed it I was wondering if would eventually vibrate loose. It was not bad, just not a perfect fit.
When I first got the only two speakers in my car worked. Found out that s40's come with an Factory amp. I Bought an adaptor. All is well, but beware and save your self head aches, s40 until 03 i believe come standard with an amp. Fyi,
Worked great in my '01 V70, no issues. I picked up an extra stereo frame from a junkyard, so I was able to install the stereo into the dash adapter and wire it on the bench, and did the stereo swap in about 5 minutes.
I am a beginner at wiring, so I took this challenge on, these really made it easy, all color coded. Just matched like colors, and plugged it in, very easy, Crutchfield makes install very easy.
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.
