About the Metra 70-1770 Receiver Wire Harness

Metra 70-1770

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

Metra 70-1770

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 harness to the wires from your new stereo. If you don't know how to use a soldering iron, we recommend that you purchase some wire connectors that you'll use to attach this harness to your factory harness.

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. 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
  • dimmer
  • left front speaker +/-
  • right front speaker +/-
  • left rear speaker +/-
  • right rear speaker +/-

What a great time saver. Just follow the wiring chart provided and make your stereo/radio installation plug-and-play. Crutchfield even provided the wiring lugs. Nice! Thank you, Crutchfield. You made a tedious task simple and easy.

Pros: Time saver. Easy and clean install.

Cons: None.

Wrong stereo wiring harness for my 1997 Ford F150.

Crutchfield customer from Morgan Hill, CA on 4/1/2019

1997 Ford F-150

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

The product was good, however for my 1997 Ford F150 requires 2 adapters, but only 1 of the harnesses fit. I looked on the Crutchfield website and this is the only one they offered for my vehicle. Glad Crutchfield gives you the harness for free when you buy a car stereo, the website may need to be updated to have another possible harnesses that may fit. I had to purchase one from a different supplier.

Pros: I had another harness and it worked flawlessly, this is good but just didn't fit.

Cons: One of the harnesses did not fit.

This is working great, but did not fit my van. I do not think this would be a problem for most though as mine is a 97 E150 conversion van and I think the in dash wiring was completely aftermarket from the conversion company so I had to rework the wiring myself.

A must have when putting a head unit in no need to do extra work to mess up the factory wiring using these is a breeze. I personally prefer to solder and heat shrink but please at least butt connector it or have the ready harness option selected. Whoever put in my old receiver just twisted the wiring together and taped it and I figure that added to the poor sound. Thank you Crutchfield for making these free.

Would have worked great had the harness been wired correctly. Don't remember now exactly how it worked out. One side used something like the green with the white and black wire. The other side used the violet with the gray and black. Fortunately, I've got a buddy that's a mechanic and had it all sorted out in about 2 minutes. It was the factory unit coming out so it wasn't like some one had switched things around. The power harness was fine.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Used these to connect new stereo to factory wiring. All connectors were correct. One of them would unplug easily after connecting to factory (it appears I may have damaged the plastic tab that locks the connectors together). I simply went around both sides of connection with a small cable tie to keep them from unplugging due to vibration. Also, I soldered all connections and used heatshrink instead of using crimp type connectors. I wanted to make sure no connections could vibrate loose.

Of all the things I do on my cars / trucks, wiring is always the most difficult - until now. The wiring of a new stereo system in my truck was the most difficult decision between DIY or have it installed. Really glad I went with Crutchfield. Very straight forward instructions for a virtual "plug and play" install. WOW. Thanks Crutchfield for the recommendation and support.

Crutchfield sent me this cable saying it would fit my 1988 Crown Victoria. I double checked I had put in the right trim and everything. Upon inspecting the cable during install I realized it was not the right one. Fortunately, it takes little more than a tool to open up the harness. I put the pins back in the right location and went about my business. It works great now, I only wish Crutchfield would've sent me the right one the first time.

Very happy to have the adapters. Radio works great. No problems whatsoever. I soldered and shrink-wrapped the connections so its well that I had a lot of room in the dash for the extra bulk afterwards. This is MUCH preferred to cutting into the loom.

Pros: Adapter wire colors match radio plug wire colors so easy as pie to match up. Note: not all wires were required for my install. Either there is an industry standard for application-to-color or the adapter manufacturer made these adapters specifically for this vehicle using this radio (Kenwood). Nice.

Cons: Not recommended for people who haven't soldered before. Had to download wiring diagrams off the internet. Wiring diagrams do not come with the package. That's OK but it was unexpected.

This wiring harness was very fast and easy to use. Took all the guesswork out of adapting the new stereo to the Ford F150 Wiring. The hardest part about the whole thing was connecting all the wires, and that was nothing. Very very easy, no mess ups, no issues. Takes the pain our of a lot of wiring guesswork.

Pros: Worth the price - made the entire install very fast.

Cons: Could have better note about connecting one wire in the harness, had to call on it but got the answer in 1 minute, so no issues there.

What can I say ... this simplifies radio installations and makes your connections more sure and if you had to you could go back to the original radio without having to undo modifications to the original wiring harness this is the best option. I am a big fan of using original type connectors when possible.

Pros: Simply works as needed. I like to solder and shrink wrap my connections and doing so to this connector that then interfaces with the factory connectors allows you to do all the work on a bench and Not inside the car in a cramped space. Cost is cheap and well worth it in my opinion.

This harness adapter kit pit perfectly. The wire color chart on the back of the package was easy to use, and each wire was clearly defined. This is exactly the product I needed for my truck.

Pros: Each conductor was clearly defined. I didn't need them all. There were more functions provided by the harness adapter than my truck or new radio could use.

Cons: The connector from the truck is a 90° type. If the two connectors on this new harness adapter were also a 90° type, or had a shorter body, it would make for a more compact assembly, and would be easier to deal with.

fit 1996 ranger okay

This wiring harness went into my son's 1996 Ranger easily. It's colors matched the radio/cd player wires and it fir the factory plugs in the Ranger perfectly. The only improvement I'd like is if it came with crimp connectors or shrink wrap for soldering to other wires.

Pros: Inexpensive, color coded wires

Cons: no crimp connectors or shrink wrap supplied with it

I have installed several receivers in cars and have used the Metra or similar harnesses before. They really facilitate an easy installation.

Pros: Easy to use, connections are printed on the wires.

Cons: It would be nice if crimp connectors were included in the package.

A breeze to hook up in my 2001Ford Focus. At first I thought I would have to verify all the wires and colors on the existing wiring harnesses but I tried just the simple approach first and matched up the colors and plugged the connectors in. It worked first try!

Simply Connected

NormW from Leander, Texas on 10/24/2014

1994 Ford Explorer

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

Getting this harness in the installation kit saves a lot of time and frustration in mating the 16 or so wires from your vehicle to your new radio. I was impressed that not only did the wire colors match between the radio harness and the adapter harness, but each wire had a tiny printed label on it. I left off one star because this kit should have had a small pack of crimp caps included.

Pros: Saves a lot of time and confusion for the DIY installation.

Cons: No crimp caps.

Product Research

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.

Very simple to use and with Crutchfield, you normally get them free with buying the radio whereas if you buy anywhere else literally, you have to purchase the kit separately at full price.
