About the Metra 70-8901 Receiver Wiring Harness

Metra 70-8901 Receiver Wiring Harness

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

Metra 70-8901 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
  • power antenna turn-on
  • illumination
  • left front speaker +/-
  • right front speaker +/-
  • left rear speaker +/-
  • right rear speaker +/-

As always, a great bit of hardware, no issues connecting it to the stereo harness and wiring it up. A good wire stripper makes it go faster, along with no-crimp connectors and some electrical tape to tidy it all up when you're done.

Pros: It's what you need. Get it.

A little bit of solder, some heat shrink tube and presto you have a complete plug and play installation. Sure beats the old days of cutting off the stock stereo's connector and soldering a new one on in the car.

Pros: Makes life easier.

Cons: none

Easy as pie

Dennis from Fallon, NV on 11/26/2018

2004 Subaru Legacy

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

This adapter is an excellent way to replace factory equipment but what I want to praise are the Crutchfield instructions that come with it. They told me, with photos, which pieces of trim to remove in order, and it was a breeze. After installing my new unit I discovered I had speaker problems. The instructions were a life-saver. Step-by-step instructions, again with photos of what appeared to be my car, showed me how to remove the door panels and speakers. The adapter costs $13. I would have paid more than that for the instructions alone.

Pros: Using an adapter is, obviously, the only way to go Instructions, instructions, instructions

Cons: None known

Made installation a lot easier! I used butt crimp connectors to connect the wires from this harness to my Sony radio's wires, then simply plugged this harness to the factory harness. The wires' colors matched perfectly with the Sony wires' colors, making everything easier. The best part-it is free! Thanks Crutchfield!

Pros: Perfect and free!

So simple even I can do it!

Ben from Fort Collins, CO on 8/24/2017

1996 Subaru Legacy

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

Crazy simple to use and install. Even I, who has minuscule electrical experience/knowledge, was able to use this in my stereo installation and I didn't even shock myself once! My only qualm (and it's one that is partially my fault and possibly partially the industries fault) is I had difficulty recognizing the power cable because the one on my head unit was more of a deep red while the corresponding one on this harness was a distinctly different color, basically pink. Therefore I (who honestly didn't read the instructional harness diagram too closely) didn't connect the power cables together at first and had to pull the unit back out and try again. But it was a good lesson learned.

Pros: Simple. Straightforward. Only took me a second try because I didn't read the instructions closely enough the first time.

Cons: Different color on the power cable (but it could be different brands doing their own thing) so I didn't catch those two at first.

The harness has a high wire count and each wire labeled which is great. The back of the plastic bag it comes in has the legend for each wire which is a nice touch too. My only issue is that the harness did not come with a dimmer wire: pin 14. The only reason it gets three stars is because of the missing wire.

Pros: Labels on the wires Legend of the wires on the bag high wire count per wire

Cons: Missing dimmer wire

This product is amazing! I loved how the color codes matched my head unit color codes! It was a easy install. My only wish is that there was information on the car's illumination system because, I want my head unit to dim with the car system but the head unit has a dimmer wire and that is not cross compatible with most head units. They are the same color and it could cause some confusion. all the information about the installation of the head unit was incredibly easy to understand and I got my head unit installed in about an hour. Great product! I always purchase from crutch field! I have for all 3 of my cars now!

Pros: Instructions make installation easy. There are pictures; however, you will need a flashlight. It's mostly plug and play.

Cons: There is a lack of information on dimmer and illumination wires. It's hard to make it look like a factory job.

If you would like an easy install of an aftermarket radio and connecting it to the factory wiring harness, then you need to get this wiring adapter. It was very easy to install and only took about 5-10 minutes. I do recommend soildering and heat shrinking your wires together.

perfect fit for replacing stock headunit on a 06 Baja. Really makes the job easier. I chose to solder the leads from my new head unit (avic-8100nex) to the leads on the harness and put heat shrink over the connection -- pretty easy task.

Pros: works

Cons: not a really a con -- but my 06 Baja factory HU harness didn't have lines for VSS and Reverse. This would be a 5+ if there was some info included about locating VSS and reverse or if metra had some sort or info about this on their website (or if Crutchfield would provide that info )

Couldn't be easier to wire your new radio into your exhisting harness. Only reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 is because one of the speaker leads kept falling off and I have to remove the radio twice to fix it. Small issue being a speaker lead but could possibly cause a fire if the hot wire came loose.

Pros: Easy color coded radio wiring for dummies

Great job for this kit!

Great job for this adapter kit! Not only is it color coded with clear instructions, but each wire has what it goes to printed on it as well. That helps out a lot for someone like me who has red-green color deficiency. I don't care for crimping wires, I much prefer solder and shrink tubing, so putting this together with the connector for the radio was the longest part of the installation - but, this was one of the easiest car stereo installs I ever did.

Pros: Wires are printed with what they go to in addition to being color-coded. Clear, easy to understand instructions.

Cons: None.

Product did just what I needed it to do. It provided the perfect splice between my stock wiring and the head unit wiring. Wiring code on the side of the packaging was easy to read and understand, and I had zero issues splicing and soldering the wiring together.

Pros: Had all the wires I needed Fit the stock plug perfectly Wiring code on the side of the packaging

Cons: Wires came pre-stripped. I wish they weren't as I didn't use the harness for the speaker + and - leads. I would rather have solid ends instead of potential bare wires sitting behind the head unit.

Loose pins required 2nd installation attempt

sturmeyhack from Seattle, WA on 7/31/2014

2002 Subaru Outback

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

Not too impressed. Was installing this into a 2002 Subaru Outback. The individual wires are well labeled and the insulation on each wire is pre-cut for splicing to the HU's connector wires, and soldering up the harness was pretty easy. However, the connector shell on mine looked like it was either made of cheap plastic or came out of a worn-out mold. After I installed my new HU, I discovered that one of the speaker channels wasn't working, and I had to disassemble everything to check on the problem. Turned out the pins on the Metra connector weren't all lining up correctly with the slots in the factory connector, pushing one or two of the connector pins out the back of the Metra socket and causing a short. At least the problem was obvious--no shorts in the solder joints between the Metra harness and the HU harness--and I was able to push the pin back into the plastic housing and hold the adaptor harness by the wires as I plugged it into the factory connector. After that, everything worked fine. So the Metra kit gets points for ease of soldering and for working with the factory harness; points off for making me install the HU twice to fix a short circuit due to bad assembly.

Pros: Consistent color-coding along with good labeling of individual wires makes soldering/splicing to the aftermarket HU wiring harness pretty straightforward. Hooray for industry standards! Once I figured out what went wrong, installation was straightforward and the new stereo works great.

Cons: Problems either in harness assembly or plastic casting resulted in loose pins in the connector, causing a short-circuit.

Does the job!

achmafooma from South Riding, VA on 5/24/2013

2008 Subaru Outback

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

The wiring harness does the job and does it well. My one small complaint is that the diagram/instructions should be clearer about the 'automatic antenna' wire. My car (2008 Subaru Outback) doesn't have an automatic antenna, so I didn't bother connecting it. As a result, my radio reception was terrible! Turns out that Subaru has an antenna booster that runs off the 'automatic antenna' lead, so you DO need to connect it to the appropriate wire on your unit's wire harness. On mine, it was some sort of vaguely defined accessory connector (and it mentioned 'automatic antenna' in the small print as something you might connect to it). After I made the connection, everything worked great. Recommend clarifying this in the instructions; the blue wire isn't necessarily for automatic antennas only, and MUST be connected [at least on my Subaru] if you want good radio reception.

Pros: Works fine, does the job, easy to hook up.

Cons: Instructions should be clearer about the 'automatic antenna' (which is actually an antenna booster on my 2008 Outback) and needs to be connected even if you don't have an automatic antenna.

Great as always, crutchfield always supplies you with the needed appliances. Just match up the color wires and go

Pros: Couldn't be easier Comes with page that tells you what wire does what, just double check in the head Unit user manual to match everything up.

Cons: None

Received this very quick with free shipping thanks to Crutchfield, who have always provided excellent service and fast shipping. Price was much better than similar plugs found else-where and even came with Crutchfield vehicle-specific instillation instructions, which are absolutely excellent BTW. Simply couldn't ask for more, had my radio installed in a matter of minutes without having to cut, test, and splice factory wiring.

Pros: Cheap Comes with instructions Easy to use Doesn't disturb factory wiring Decent quality

Cons: Doesn't make me breakfast?

I purchased this from Crutchfield and chose to get a head unit from somewhere else. In the package from Crutchfield, a full picture-laden highly-descriptive instruction booklet accompanied the harness. These instructions were not only for taking the dash panel off for the radio installation, but also for all the speakers in the car. Over and above the call of duty for a 12-dollar harness. I will not hesitate to pay the extra price for my next unit because of such excellent attention to detail.

Pros: Easy-to-read instruction booklet. Harness is a perfect fit. Pre-stripped tips are brilliant.

Cons: It didn't include a briefcase full of cash.
