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 and sold
