Easy to Use

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This was easy to use and connect with my new stereo, my only question is why send it with two different wire harness types? Seems like it would only be necessary to send one or the other.

Pros: Easy to Connect Instructions are Clear No Discernible Interference

Cons: Comes with two different wire harnesses

It is so easy to install that my 17 year old son did his own stereo install. Just match the colors for the radio and you're good to go. Perfect fit to OEM harness.

Pros: Perfect fit to OEM harness Easy to use Ends cut for correct strip length

Wiring Harness

George from Chesapeake, VA on 10/1/2012

1988 Ford F Series

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

The wiring harness was useless to me. It was simply the wrong one. It would have taken me more time to use the supplied harness than it took me to use the existing after market harness I had been using previously.

Pros: none

Cons: I didn't even try and use this harness. It would not connect to the original wiring for my 1998 Ford F-150.

Be careful if you're using crimp connectors the wire is soft, I had a problem with the wire smashing in two. Other than that I didn't have any problems.

The harness is a nice plug in option to splicing but, at-least for my "88" F-150 the diagram was wrong so it's best to ohm the speaker wires from your door to the harness to find the positive and negative for each speaker and relabel the diagram before you make the final connections.

Excellent adapter

Robert from Dothan, Al on 4/9/2009

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This wiring harness worked very well with the new radio. I had no problems wiring this harness to the new radio harness. The color scheme was straight forward. The hard part was verifying my Ford wiring harness to match up to the adapter harness. My schematic in my Haynes manual did not match the color scheme in the factor harness and the ground wire shown was not installed. Once verified, it was easy to install the ground. Straight forward plug and play after that. The install took about an hour.

Worked

Vic from Trenton, NJ on 1/29/2009

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Worked fine but I did have to confirm its application with Crutchfield Rep. Install was easy and quick. It was important to confirm the power hook up. I had to not use one wire and connect another to my fuse panel as an on/off switch for the reciver.

Make sure you get a good ground, don't blame the harness. But everything else is strip, shrink, and plug and play, really loud.
