About the Metra 70-1771 Receiver Wiring Harness

Metra 70-1771 Receiver Wiring Harness

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

Metra 70-1771 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.

Connections:

  • 12V constant power
  • 12V switched power
  • chassis ground
  • signal ground — connects to same receiver wire as the chassis ground
  • illumination
  • dimmer
  • left front speaker +/-
  • right front speaker +/-
  • left rear speaker +/-
  • right rear speaker +/-

Excellent product and service

Crutchfield customer from Elizabeth, CO on 8/15/2019

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

Ordered the Metra 70-1771 Receiver Wiring Harness to install my Kenwood DDX593 that I removed from my Kia Sorento when it was totaled by my insurance. I have never done any type of car audio installation but with this harness, the clear wiring chart and fantastic support from Crutchfield it was not difficult and the stereo works great! This saved me hundreds of $$$. They even let me know I needed an additional dash kit which made the installation seamless. Now I have a great sounding stereo in our new to us 2002 Ford Explorer. Next on the list is to hook up the back up camera. I just wasn't ready to take that on yet but after talking with a technician I am confident I will be able to install it too. I could not be happier with the product as well as the excellent service from the technicians. 5 stars all around!

Pros: Easy to install, great instructions.

Cons: One wire was on the diagram was not no longer included in the harness. This was a bit confusing for me and delayed my installation, however it was a very minor issue as I was able to get a quick response from Crutchfield as to why. It was an extra grounding wire that was no longer needed.

Great wiring harness

Crutchfield customer from Swiftwater, PA on 5/19/2019

2003 Ford Ranger

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

This wiring harness is a no brainer. I've bought this for a few of my ford trucks when adding a stereo bought from crutchfield. The instructions are simple to follow, the plug fits as if were factory and has never failed me. It's a great deal if bought on it's own, an even better deal that crutchfield includes it for FREE if you buy a stereo!

Pros: Simple installation, pretty much matches color to color with certain double dins. Instructions are great, price is great and just an overall great product to use.

Cons: No cons from my point of view

Crutchfield response on 5/8/2019
Once we saw this review, our Tech Support specialist, AJ, reached out to this customer to help him further. We'll make sure his Expedition doesn't have the Mach audio system, because that requires a completely different harness. We'll get him the correct harness and make sure his new receiver is connected properly.

Only works if you give Crutchfield accurate vehicle specs

Crutchfield customer from San Francisco, CA on 5/3/2019

1998 Ford Explorer

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

I like the crutchfield wiring service because I appreciated being able to "plug and play" my new radio. My advice is that you should call support to confirm your vehicle specs are correct before they send out the wiring. Although my installation took more back and fourth than I was expecting; the point is it's done and I didn't have to pay a pro to do it for me. I'm very impressed with the great technical and sales support I received from everyone that helped me at Crutchfield. Brady especially, kept following through and responded to even my smallest questions. I didn't realize that for my particular vehicle a secondary wiring interface is also required. Crutchfield sent out the additional part immediately and I was eventually able to connect everything and start using the Kenwood KMM-BT325U with my new speakers. Initially the rear channel would not play, and Brady patiently helped me through re-pinning (rewiring) one of the connections. I might have avoided the extra steps if I had called support when I placed my order. I wasn't 100% right when I entered my vehicle specs and it took some work to get everything sorted out. All things considered, the harness service was an incredible value.

Pros: my new radio and speakers work, I didn't have to pay a pro installer, great technical support from crutchfield

Cons: Took more work than expected.

This only gets three stars because it does not include a connector for the excursion ant with rear entertainment to keep it available. if you get the f250 the connector does not work it's a rectangle instead of a square so you end up cutting and splicing wires.

Pros: Works for the main connector and as well labeled.

Cons: Cannot keep your rear entertainment active do to no second connector

Pins move too much but still worth getting to make the install smooth.

Mark from Howard, KS on 1/24/2019

2000 Ford Excursion

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

4 stars simply because it makes installs go so much easier though I was a little disappointed with the pins. They were able to wiggle too much making it difficult to connect to the factory plug without bending them. Had to hold the wires to keep the pins from moving then gently wiggle the plug as I connected them together to get everything lined up and finally seated. Regardless of the pin issue I would never do an install without it. Cutting the factory plug is simply an unacceptable option, period.

Pros: Quick and easy to connect to the stereo wiring Don't have to hard wire into the factory wiring allowing you to retain the factory plug.

Cons: Pins move too much making it easy to bend them when connecting to the factory plug.

The ground wire was not in the right position to match the harness in the car (2004 Mustang). Had to reinstall twice until I figured it out. Ended up cutting it off and splicing it to the ground in the car harness. Made what should have been a relatively easy install very painful!

Makes life easier

Crutchfield customer from Winter Haven, FL on 8/20/2018

2000 Ford F-150

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

This made my life so much easier. Being able to wire the stereo inside instead of in the hot garage was godsend. And now its plug and play, which the previous owner of my truck didn't believe in, so I had to wire both sides. Highly recommended. My only complaint is that they recommend butt caps to join the wires. No, I don't play that game. Solder and heat shrink your wires people. If you're going to do it, do it right.

Pros: Makes stereo install plug and play.

Cons: Colors didn't match OE. Don't like wire joining recommendation.

Nice but Crutchfield can do better

Vincent from Mattawa, WA on 8/9/2018

2002 Ford F-350

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

I have the skill and tools to properly install crimp connectors, but I honestly think Crutchfield should provide a seamless connector or at least supply quality crimp connectors with its harnesses. It would be a good business decision as a lot of people go on line and order junk foreign crimp connectors, you know the gazillion of everything for 20 bucks (usually weak aluminum) that wind up generating warranty/service calls to Crutchfield. Also a crimping tutorial video would be a nice addition where you demonstrate the proper way to do it with a proper double crimp tool. You could sell as a kit. Make sure the crimp connectors are quality from known brands such as AMP, Panduit, TE, etc. The price was right (free) and the colors matched up (white/black to white/black).

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I used this for an Excelon DPX793BH in a 2002 Explorer XLT. When I took out the existing radio there were 2 harnesses connected. I had to call Tech Support to find the second one didn't need to be connected to the new unit. Would have been better if that had been included in the instructions so I didn't have to wait for tech support to open for the day.

What a snap to use. All you had to do is match up the color coded wires that came with the new radio and snap this to your factory wiring harness in your car and "Listen to the Music"! Quick and efficient.

Pros: Simple to connect.

Cons: none

This makes the install so easy! Just match the colors to the radio and insulate your connections. I used solder and 3M super 88 but you could use butt connectors or heat shrink if you wanted. I can not imagine doing it any other way. Anything else would probably be harder and not work nearly as well

Pros: Wire colors matched. Well made. Easy to use

Cons: Can not think of a single one!

I thought this would be a stock to Pioneer plug to plug. Seems silly to still have to cut wires and crimp them together.

Pros: It plugs into at least on side. And it was free.

Cons: Doesn't plug into the other side. You still need to cut and crimp wires together. Yeah it saved me about 10 minutes of online research to determine what does what. If it wasn't free I sure wouldn't pay for it.

Don't know what you'd say about the relative merits of a wiring harness, really -- it's either the right one for the job or it isn't. ;) That's where Crutchfield comes in, of course. I've had the need for several of these things over the past few decades -- and Crutchfield, whether by catalog chart, by phone support, or nowadays by website, always gets it right. They've made one and only one mistake, and they made good on it very quickly.

As a person who has been involved with Boeing aircraft harnesses, as well as international communication wiring and US Dept of Defense electrical devices where designers seem to want to make things far more complicated than they need to be, it is a joy to deal with a receiver harness designed for simplicity. This harness was very easy to install, and a novice should be able to work with it as long as they can read and understand printed instructions.

Pros: Well marked wires making for ease of connecting. Without this harness, few people would be able to get the receiver to function.

This item came as part of the installation kit that was recommended and provided at a deep discount.

I was able to solder the two harnesses together quite easily. I installed the head unit last night and the wiring harness was a perfect fit for my vehicle all the lights and sounds seem to be functioning properly so far.

Perfect wire color and fit match between my 1999 Ford truck and the new Pioneer MVH-X390BT head I installed.

Pros: It helped make the install cleaner and faster. Wire colors matched across the board to the new stereo head.

Cons: Minor: When you connect this to your Ford, the connection will be smooth and fitted. BUT the lock tab may be firm, and take a little work to disconnect. I like to test-fit my connectors before the final install, and that's how I learned about this.

This did not fit my Crown Victoria. After further investigation there are two types of plugs for Ford, this one and another that is more rectangular. That was the one I needed. I cant be too upset because it was free, unfortunately the local stereo shop got me for a pretty penny.

Pros: Makes connecting aftermarket to factory great and painless

Cons: It needs to be the right connector.

Wiring harness hooks right up. It is much thicker wire than the receiver's harness but works well. It would have been nice to have the hardware to splice into the receiver harness.

Makes interfacing your new non-OEM radio/stereo to your vehicle simple. You can use crimp splices, but I always recommend soldering connections. The manufacturer appears to try to match industry standards, but their use of gray and green colors that are very close in shading make it difficult for those of us who have red-green color blindness (deuteranomaly). If Pioneer can use colors that are better distinguished, then so can Metra. I could easily determine the green and gray wires of the Pioneer unit.

Pros: Makes connecting your new stereo to your vehicle easy

Cons: drab coloring and poor separation of green/gray coloring may make use difficult for red-green color blindness

This harness comes prepped and ready to connect and use. Instructions make it easy, and it plugged right in with no problems or adjustments. Nice!

Pros: Simple instructions, pre-trimmed wires, plugged right in clean as a whistle

Cons:
