About the Metra 70-1782 Receiver Wiring Harness

Metra 70-1782 receiver wiring harness

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

Metra 70-1782 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.

Product Research


Wiring Harness: This wiring harness prevents 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 and sold separately.

Customer Q&A

It came recommended for the install. Hope it does in fact connect straight to the factory connector [ Michael  Mar 24, 2020 ]

Does this adapter have 5 pins on the top left 4 on the bottom left and 2 on both the top and bottom on the right side I have an aftermarket plug and no idea what harness it is?
[ Caryn  May 23, 2017 ]
1 answer
The Metra 70-1782 wire harness consists of a 13-pin plug with 7 pins along the bottom and 6 pins along the top half. For more detailed assistance specific to your installation, I would recommend contacting an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat--they can help determine what will be needed to get your system up and running!
