About the Metra 70-8114 Steering Wheel Control Harness

Metra 70-8114 Steering Wheel Control Harness

Metra's 70-8114 harness allows you to connect the steering wheel audio controls in 2003-up Toyota-built vehicles (if equipped) to a new car stereo without having to splice into your factory wiring.

Metra 70-8114 Steering Wheel Control Harness

Metra's 70-8114 harness allows you to connect the steering wheel audio controls in 2003-up Toyota-built vehicles (if equipped) to a new car stereo without having to splice into your factory wiring.

To use this harness, you'll need the Axxess ASWC-1 steering wheel control interface (sold separately) and a compatible aftermarket radio (won't work with Parrot, Rosen, or Car Show radios). You'll also need a vehicle-specific wiring harness to install your aftermarket stereo. We'll show you the correct harness when you enter your vehicle information into our online vehicle selector.

Once you've connected this harness to your new receiver's rear RCA auxiliary input, you'll also be able to use the handy auxiliary input in your Toyota. This adapter will work with any 2003-up Toyota, Lexus, and Scion vehicle equipped with steering wheel audio controls. Warranty: 60 days.

Important note: The aftermarket radio you install must have a rear RCA auxiliary input if you wish to retain your factory auxiliary input.

Metra 70-8114 Steering Wheel Control Harness

Crutchfield customer from Orlando, FL on 9/20/2019

2009 Toyota Tacoma

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

Awesome Harness! Definitely makes it a "Plug & Play," matched vehicle factory wiring exactly. Super easy connection, only had to connect Red Power wire and Black Ground wire. Then plug it in and allow adapter self program! Quick, easy and clean wiring. Worked perfectly and saved time! Would definitely recommend, totally worth the price!

Pros: Only have two wires to connect, + red and - black. You can totally discard the assembly that comes with the Steering Wheel Control Adapter, making it plug and play into factory wiring. Easy connection and install. Totally worth the price.

Cons: Package I received was purchased as "New;" however, the packaging was open about 1 1/2 inches across the bottom upon delivery. Also one of the wire wraps was partially melted, leaving me to question whether it was "previously used and sold to me as NEW." I installed the part anyway, despite my uncertainty over the package being open and wiring partially melted as if it was previously installed. Also Crutchfield could inform customers better about "vehicle specific" harness availability!

I have installed about 10 sound systems over the last 30 years. I've never had an item as poorly made as this one. The instructions did not work, the adapter would not mate tightly to the oem plug. A compete waste of money.

Pros: None - I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

If you are putting in the steering wheel controls and this adapter comes up as an option, BUY IT! It eliminates the use of the multi wire confusing adapter that comes with the controller itself. This adapter is brilliant and takes away all the guess work.

This is a nice way to handle all the wiring. No doubt there is still a lot of unknowns depending upon the aftermarket heads you're putting in but the harness certainly is better than hand wiring your own. I chatted with Crutchfield on some wiring identification (color codes on my Tacoma didn't match the "manufacture's" color coding. Everything works fine now! Without Crutchfield, I would just church the whole idea.

Worked for me

Ed from Lancaster County, PA on 5/7/2017

2006 Toyota Camry

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

This kit eliminates the need to cut & solder wires for the steering wheel control box. I didn't realize this required power and ground connections until after I was finished with the radio harness (had to go back and add another splice...my bad). The connector for the factory harness does not "snap" in (looks like to should) so I wrapped it with tape to hold it. Seems to work fine.

Pros: Fairly simple install

Cons: Connector does not "snap"

Did the job with trivial issues

Bob from Bowie, MD on 3/27/2017

2005 Toyota Prius

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

This solved my problem of connecting a Metra steering wheel box to my Prius. It would have been perfect if it had had pins 9 and 10 wired, so I could easily put on the ridiculous 68 ohm resistor required to make climate control work. Also, the connector didn't quite go all the way into the car socket (no SNAP!), but the electrical connection was fine, so I put some tape on it to make sure it stayed connected. I did buy this as a white-box discount, so you expect little stuff like that.

Pros: Fit well enough Had the signal pins I absolutely needed

Cons: No SNAP at connection

Used this harness to connect the aswc-1 steering wheel control box to my 2004 Lexus RX330 steering control. Connector easy to wire up. Only issue was the white connector that matches up with the Car connector does not 'lock' together. I used electrical tape to tape the connector together so these is no chance for them to separate.

Pros: Easy to wire

Cons: Connector didn't lock into the car connector.

2006 Toyota RAV4

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

Very concerned about doing this install since I never did one with a steering wheel connector, but once you figure it all out, it's a snap! Had to watch various youtubes, talked to Crutchfield tech support, but the call to Metra answered the question. For my 2006 Rav4, it was simply plugging the 3.5 male into the female 3.5 adapter, and connecting the brown wire from the adapter to the blue yellow of the radio harness. And that was it!

Pros: Simple install once you knew what to do.

Cons: Confusing at first, watched various youtubes, called Crutchfield, but finally after talking to Metra tech support for two minutes got it done.

This harness was a better option offered to me by tech support. Not too different than the harness shipped with the steering wheel control unit but the factory plastic harness made for a few less other connections. Only problem was, it was not a perfect fit into the harness. Not sure if the pins are too long or the plastic clip just didn't match up. I was able to put the harness together squeeze it and tape it in place without worrying about the final "click".

Pros: Less soldering than original harness

Cons: Not a perfect fit!

Incompatible with Scion Xa Wiring Harness

wesleyd from Albuquerque, NM on 12/14/2015

2006 Scion xA

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

This product is well-manufactured and designed like many other Metra wiring harnesses. The only (albeit, rather large) issue I encountered, is that it is not compatible with the factory wiring harness in a 2006 Scion Xa as indicated by Crutchfield. It contains the correct wires in the correct orientation, but the connectors are not compatible with one another. I ended out having to cut the wires out of the harness and splice them with the factory wiring, which defeats the purpose of using such a harness in the first place. One thing it was handy for was reducing the number of extraneous, unneeded wires I had to tape up as it is tailored to fit most (but clearly not all) Toyota/Scion vehicles.

Pros: Minimizes extra wires from harness included with the Axxess ASWC-1 control adapter.

Cons: Connector is incompatible with Scion Xa factory wiring harness.

No Splicing is a good thing

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

No Splicing is a great thing, and this adaptor made sure you didn't have to cut the stock wires. I just wish the instructions told you which wires don't apply to your vehicle. would make installation a lot faster instead of wondering what all the extra adaptors are for.

Pros: No Splicing. Fast and easy

Cons: Vague instructions. only one section applied to my car.

Made the install very easy. There wasnt much for instructions, but it was all pretty easy if you researched with your headunit brand and read the axxess install instructions.

Pros: Clean and easy. No splicing so switching back to stock is super easy.

Cons: Instructions were lacking a bit. As in none at all. But was plug n play so i had no trouble, but some may end up hooking too many things us to the headunit.

Once I figured out how it needed to be integrated with the new radio, installation was a breeze. This is simply a plug and play device....no need to program. Does the job as intended.

Pros: Easy to install, no programming needed.

Cons: Instructions could be a bit more clear. Manufacturer website was down so I had to call Crutchfield to answer a question.

Appears like it would work, designed to eliminate cutting 3 wires from factory wiring, but once I went to install the plug was the incorrect size. Called Crutchfield and emailed them a pic, they were not sure why the plug was a different size, but refunded me the price of this item and let me keep it. Made sure I had instructions how it install without this item.

Pros: Good in theory

Mark from VA on 4/17/2014

2009 Toyota Tacoma

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

My specific product (for 2009 Toyota Tacoma) allowed the ability to not create wire connections (soldering or crimping) in the vehicle and allows you to simply plug into the wiring harness for the steering wheel controls and mate up to the the ASWC1 steering wheel control module and head unit (radio).

Pros: Works as expected. No splicing of wires in the vehicle.

Cons: The RCA plugs could have come with some plastic/rubber plug covers as these will not be usable for everyone (like myself). Instructions are not self-evident on what plug goes where. I am not a person who just slaps together connections just because "they look like they go there". A phone call to Crutchfield solved my questions.

The directions come in a PDF with an email confirmation of your order; so I didn't follow them during the initial installation. So I missed a crucial step of installing a small resistor on the car's factory wire harness which ensures compatibility with the car's built in multifunction display.

Used this to install a replacement Pioneer stereo to the factory harness on a 2003 Toyota Sequoia. Don't over think it and this works as intended. This probably should have been a lot easier for me, but with several integration adapters (stereo to car harness, stereo to steering wheel harness) it was a little confusing. Called Crutchfield support and they worked me through it. Did not have to splice anything.

Pros: No splicing.

Cons: Not that obvious how it goes together with other wiring.

This comes with 2 harnesses, one you will use and one you will not. At most you might have to use 3 wires in the bundle. It has a 1/8" phono jack to interface with the radio (JVC) I ended up heat shrinking mione so they would not pull apart. Over all easy to hook up.

Pros: Comes with 2 cables sets, Pick the one you need.

Cons: This harness requires you to cut into your factor harness for proper connection. It should have connector that you can plug in to the factory plug. Was not wild a phono jack in the dash can some loose or pick up noise over time.

Eric B. from Rochester, NY on 3/1/2013

2009 Toyota Corolla

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

If you're replacing the factory stereo in your vehicle, and want to use an adapter to continue using the steering wheel controls, save yourself the headache and buy this adapter (if it is compatible with your car). I spent hours trying to figure out the confusing instructions for the control adapter, and then troubleshoot the wiring connections that I had to splice into the original factory wiring. With this adapter the only wiring I needed to do was to tie into the power connections that made with the aftermarket radio adapters. Now the whole system is easily disconnected from the factory plugs in the dash, which is a great perk for when I move on to the next vehicle and want to put the factory stereo back in place.

Pros: Perfect fit with factory steering wheel control plug. Maintained same wire coding scheme as the control adapter I used. Only needed to solder power connections, all others were removable plugs or were pre-wired.

Cons: The extra RCA connectors aren't necessary unless you have an AUX input on the back of your stereo, which just adds more wires in the dash. Was not included or promoted as an add-on by Crutchfield when I purchased the control adapter.

Worked great on Toyota Rav4! I had it installed wrong on a JVC radio at first and found the instructions on the Axxess website to resolve the issue. The 3.5mm male plugs into a special 3.5mm female and a wire attaches to the JVC radio harness, which keeps the rear aux port of the JVC radio open for Bluetooth or other things.

Pros: Works great and eliminates splicing. Only have to connect ignition power and ground.

This part is worth every penny. If you want to integrate steering wheel controls into an aftermarket head unit, this Toyota specific adapter makes it super easy. Just plug it into the car's wiring harness, then plug the 3.5mm plug into the head unit (Alpine CED-136BT in my case) and you're done.My application was a 2006 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited, and all I had to do was press the volume up button once everything was installed, and it figured out the rest. The guy at the local shop was telling me how hard it is to make steering wheel controls work with aftermarket head units and wanted an extra $50 to do it. I do all my own work, it's easy just try it!

Metra Toyota-specific Harness - 2010 Tacoma Dbl Cab

Stormin from Charlotte on 3/5/2012

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

Used this in conjunction with the Metra universal steering wheel control accessory. Was a plug and chug, nothing to splice, everything fit into where it was supposed to go. Installed clean on a 2010 Tacoma with no JBL system and new Pioneer DEH-P8400BH. Seemed to not learned all the buttons when initially hooked up, but gained functionality on the second try. My up/down buttons do not scroll through the pre-set tuner stations. Up/Down buttons do change the tuner frequency and works fine scrolling through songs when in USB mode.

Pros: Easy set-up. Plug and chug, nothing to splice. Once you have steering wheel controls, it tough to give up their functionality.

Cons: Price, considering it is used in conjunction with the already pricey accessory.

Q
Can you use this along with a crutchfield harness for aftermarket head units? Instructions for both this harness and the stereo harness say to connect to the factory (20 pin) connector in the car - but how can you clip two harnesses into a single factory connector (without having to splice wires, as advertised)??
[ Jon  Nov 30, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
The Metra 70-8113 wire harness connects to the original factory connector (the one that disconnects from the original stereo chassis) in compatible vehicles and provides the leads for connection to an aftermarket stereo's harness (packaged with the aftermarket stereo). This harness also provides RCA connections for attaching to the aftermarket stereo's pre-amp outputs to the factory amplifier in compatible vehicles. For additional assistance and personalized recommendations, feel free to contact us directly by phone or through our online chat service: https://www.crutchfield.com/support/ContactUs.aspx

Q
What are the aux wires on this for? Do they need to be used? Have a double din bluetooth head unit with aux outs, but no amplifier. Are the aux plugs unnecessary ?
[ Richard  Jan 01, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
The 3.5mm (male) connection in the Metra 70-8114 harness is the steering wheel control output--it would plug directly into your aftermarket receiver's 3.5mm (female) steering wheel control input. For more details or to discuss further, please contact an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. Thank you! :)

Q
Can this be used without the Axxess ASWC-1 and how would you go about doing so? Please don't just say no so I spend more money and buy it as I just don't have $70 to spend. I have an aftermarket Sony DSX-A400BT, Toyota Camry 2005. Do you need to know the Wiring harness I used to put it in? Should be irrelevant?
[ Conor  Sep 11, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
The Metra 70-8114 harness cannot be used without the Axxess ASWC-1 steering wheel control adapter. It's designed to simplify the installation of the Axxess ASWC-1 adapter in select 2003-up Toyota vehicles, including the '05 Camry. For more details or to discuss further, please feel free to contact an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat.
