This is the 3rd time I've ordered a radio, each time these harnesses are included and they make life so much easier. You aren't getting a run of the mill harness, your getting exactly what you need for a clean, problem free installation.

Pros: Factory fit Easy to install No wire cutting Easy to read labels

Cons: None that i can think of

I installed a radio head in my son's 1998 Civic and when I was ordering parts initially, I guess I got ahead of myself and ordered the wrong harness. Got elbow deep in it on a Sunday and when I figured out I had the wrong harness, I called customer support - I talked to Jason(?) and he couldn't have been more helpful. He got the correct harness to me at no cost and even sent it priority mail so I could get the job done quickly. Thanks to everyone at Crutchfield - you are the best!

Pros: Fit perfectly and was easy to install

Cons: none

Great instructions and fit

Michael W from Layton, UT on 1/18/2014

1997 Honda Civic

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I actually modified my harness (removing the second connector) because I didn't want to keep my keyless entry, as it hadn't been working reliably. The instructions are great, with one warning--when it tells you to splice the green/red and green/black wires, look for the light green wires--not the brighter green ones. Once you figure this out, it's pretty easy and straightforward. If you still aren't sure which wires to splice, a quick YouTube search should point you in the right direction.

Pros: Allows you to keep keyless entry, connects easily

Cons: Instructions refer to green wires, not light green. Wire splice must be done in order to preserve overhead dome light functionality.

I did not need to keep my old Honda stereo behind the gloove box as I was told for my auto unlock to work on my 98 Civic. Overall it was esy to install. I ecommand that you remove the old Civic deck and see if you locks still work, if so then you don't need to keep the old deck behind the dash.

This harness did a fine job of connecting my new Sony to the old factory radio (needed to preserve keyless entry functions) and to the factory wiring in the dash. Note that you'll still need a soldering iron or a set of wire connectors to connect the harness to the wiring from your aftermarket radio, however.

Crutchfield customer from Naperville, IL on 1/11/2010

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Unfortunately the instructions assumed the manufacturer's original radio was still in operation and had not already been replaced by a previous owner of the auto with an Alpine unit. This is likely my error. Therefore instead of rewiring the system using the Crutchfield provided harness; instead cut the existing radio's connection to the harness already in place and soldered the Dual radio's connecter to the interface plug wiring. All is working flawlessly.

This wiring harness was extremely helpful and made the installation of my new reciever a snap. The only advice that would have been helpful and saved me some trouble would have been to have known that the radio that is being replaced also has the seperate cassette player, the cassette player needs to be removed also to make room for the factory radio to be stored if you have keyless entry.

This harness was a tremendous aid in installing our new head unit. We soldered all of the connections with shrink tubing for protection but it could just as easily been done with crimped connectors. Only suggestion would be to include the connectors...

Dennis from Richmond, VA on 10/21/2005

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought this for and fitted this into my wife's 1998 Honda Civic EX. The harness is just the right length to fit the old stereo down in front of the shifter (and keep the keyless entry) and the fit of the connectors is superb. The instructions were very clear and make the mate to the stereo harness very easy. I would recommend soldering the wires of this harness with the wires from your radio harness for the cleanest look; you could also use inline crimped wire connectors to keep things fairly neat looking. When you move the factory radio, make sure you remove the faceplate to keep it from turning on and work on it to get it as far down into the hole behind the cigarette lighter as possible. I found that wrapping the old stereo as described in the included instructions was not an option as it makes fitting the stereo in the hole too difficult. I made a cardboard face to cover the hole left when the faceplate was taken off and that worked fine.
