About the Metra 70-1729 Receiver Wiring Harness

Metra 70-1729 Receiver Wiring Harness

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

Metra 70-1729 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.

Wiring for steering wheel functions are not included with this harness...you will need to cut your factory harness for those...very inefficiant for what the purpose of this product was intended for. Even the base car has steering wheel switches so why not include...cheap junk

Not bad. Connector was ok quality. I really wish they would have populated the pins for the steering wheel controls. That seems to be a big miss and would have saved the trouble of having to tap them manually.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This works reasonably well, but for my 2015 Honda Civic LX the Illumination wire was in a position on the harness that didn't connect with anything on my stock setup. I had to tap another location for Illumination/dimming. Your results may be different, but there definitely was no connection being made on the orange wire with my stock LX setup. Other than that it works great

Pros: Gets the job done

Cons: Illumination doesn't work correctly

Works as expected. I accidentally bent a pin on the adapter when installing a new head unit and it was giving me some very weird issues.

Don't dream of an install without this connector. Following the radio wire code, match it to this connector. You may need to play around with different wires to get it all working but it'll be impossible without this part

Pros: Makes the Connection to the car

Cons: Locking latch can be difficult to undo

Double check that the correct harness was placed in your cart

Travis from Canton, OH on 8/10/2016

2012 Honda Insight

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

The fit and finish of this was fine. The wires seemed durable and well labeled and most were ready to splice into the radio head unit harness. However I am giving this 2 stars as a warning DOUBLE check your cart that the correct harnesses were added to your cart. I received the incorrect harness and incorrect antenna adapter because the wrong ones were loaded into my cart and I just assumed they were the correct ones. In my case what happened is I changed my vehicles configuration to the 4 speaker stock system instead of the base model that I own so I could see the speaker choices for the rear openings I have that that are empty. I didn't think any of it and never changed it back. It's not Crutchfield's fault, more mine. Honda has many different adapters and harnesses in use and they aren't necessarily vehicle specific but more option specific. Beware otherwise you'll do all the work only to plug it in and realize you just wasted your time and have to track one down or wait for a replacement.

Pros: Labeled and close to matching colors

Cons: It doesn't fit if you don't pay attention to ordering the correct harness and adapter.

Does not include antenna adapter

Driver Ben from Boston, MA on 4/3/2016

2009 Honda Fit Sport

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

The plug fit and works fine, but neither the product description nor Crutchfield's information noted that an additional adapter is required for the FM radio adapter. Purchased it at local big box retailer for $5... But thought the whole point of shopping here was avoiding these kind of annoyances.

Pros: Fits well, easy to install.

Cons: Does not include Honda antenna adapter necessary for FM radio.

Pros: not have to cut any existing terminal of your car.

Cons: The blue wire of the connector (antenna electric) does not supply power. The (amplified) electric antenna should be connected directly to the Radio cable (blue / white) that turn on the external amplifiers.

This harness with just a radio is 5 stars. I installed the ASWC-1 using this wire harness. One of these two products should include two pins with wires to put into this harness. Trying to wire the AWSC-1 into the backside of the factory harness is a challenge that is not required with the proper connections into this harness. With that said the Crutchfield support is excellent.

Almost...

Dan from Albuquerque, NM on 1/10/2013

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

As the description says, you will not get the steering wheel control pins for this. Some radios also have a vehicle speed input for automatic loudness control, which is not provided. Metra would be doing themselves and us a huge favor by at least selling extra wire/pins that can be inserted into the appropriate empty locations in their plugs to provide these features. After all, the reason for this harness is to avoid hacking up the factory plug. But if you want steering wheel controls or speed input, you will need to otherwise hack into the factory plug. In all, this is a good product. But you might need to buy two of them and canibalize one of them for extra wires.

Pros: Quick and easy

Cons: Missing a few wires

Features

Wiring Harness: This 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 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 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 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.
