About the Crutchfield ReadyHarness™ Service

Save time and effort

Maybe you're incredibly busy. Maybe you just aren't handy with tools. Maybe you don't know that when you buy a car stereo from Crutchfield, we include a vehicle-specific wiring harness that you will have to connect to the wiring harness that comes with your car stereo. Crutchfield now offers a connection service for these harnesses, even for sophisticated wiring interfaces often required to retain important safety and entertainment features. 

Save time and effort

Maybe you're incredibly busy. Maybe you just aren't handy with tools. Maybe you don't know that when you buy a car stereo from Crutchfield, we include a vehicle-specific wiring harness that you will have to connect to the wiring harness that comes with your car stereo. Crutchfield now offers a connection service for these harnesses, even for sophisticated wiring interfaces often required to retain important safety and entertainment features. 

When you purchase our ReadyHarness service, we will open up your new car stereo, remove its wiring harness, then connect it — wire by wire — to the vehicle-specific harness (included with your package) that plugs into your vehicle's wiring. We will wire up every available connection that we can between the wiring interface and radio, and we will make connections for any steering wheel audio control adapter (sold separately) that might be needed — but keep in mind that you may have to make some further connections directly into your vehicle's wiring. The Crutchfield ReadyHarness is then packed back with your car stereo, so you'll be able to plug one end into the car stereo and the other into your vehicle.

ReadyHarness

          Potential crisis...

What's involved?

We use a custom-tooled industrial crimping machine to ensure that your ReadyHarness will stand the test of time... and summertime temperatures inside your car! Our wiring pro consults the wiring diagrams for your car stereo and for your vehicle to make sure that every connection is correct. For simpler harnesses, we'll send you a set of custom-made connectors that are plugged together. Of course, we can't make connections from your car stereo to wires in your car that are sometimes needed (like certain connections for a steering wheel control adapter or a parking brake wire for a DVD receiver), so you may have to connect a few wires for more complex applications.

ReadyHarness

         Crisis averted!

Why should I do this?

A Crutchfield ReadyHarness saves you significant time, effort, and potential heartache. In the past, you'd have to sit down with a crimping tool or soldering iron, match up the two harnesses wire by wire, according to function, and then make secure connections. Now, the ReadyHarness is ready to rock the minute you open up your new car stereo. And you'll avoid the pain of turning on your new radio only to find out that you've wired it incorrectly.

Please note!

Please remember that it'll take some time for us to build your ReadyHarness, so plan on your new car stereo arriving at least a day later than usual.

Listen to our customers

"I am absolutely thrilled at finally getting the wiring harness and vehicle adapter connected properly. It certainly significantly reduces the installation time/effort. Not sure why you didn't start this years ago."  — Bob M.

"Unless you do this often, why take the time and the chance that a connection is not correct? Then the time to figure out what wire is not working, etc.? You all fixed me up with one wiring harness. I plug into the radio and two plugs on the other end directly into the car. Swap a radio in 15 minutes. How cool is that?" — #crimpinainteasy

"Just wanted to drop you an email and say your adapter/stereo harness worked perfectly! I cut the installation time by at least 1.5 hours enlisting your service! Thanks again for a great job."  — Tom L.

"AMAZING!!  I was a Crutchfield  guy back in the day, installing various car stereos in my cars.  There always was chopping, wiring and a fair amount of brain surgery.  I just installed a JVC CD player in my wife's Honda Accord in 15 minutes, thanks to your prewired loom and excellent instructions!
Thanks again for a painless process!!!"  —  Ethan S.

Q
What is the yellow wire for?
[ Harry  Oct 25, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
the picture is for illustrative purposes only. This is a service, and is highly variable based upon the harness and installation gear needed for you specific vehicle. This is simply the service of harness wire connection, not the harness itself.
[ Calvin  Nov 05, 2020 ]  Staff
Q
I have a 2007 Tahoe LT and am going to be installing a BOSS Audio BVCP9685A head unit. Is this wiring harness going to be plug n play?
[ Jacob  Oct 21, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
Hi Jacob. The Ready Harness service is a wiring service that is offered to customers who are purchasing their new stereo, and the installation products and harnesses they will need to install their car stereo. Please chat with us online or by phone at 1-800-324-9695/ We will be happy to set you up with the wiring you will need to complete your install, however, we cannot pre-wire the connections if you already have the stereo in your possession. Please call or chat for further information.

I have used two of the Crutchfield Ready Harnesses. Both worked flawlessly. I suggest you call or chat online with Crutchfield and they will tell you exactly what you need. They have the BEST US based customer service. I love the ready harness...plug and play
[ Grant  Oct 20, 2020 ]
A
I installed a radio in a 2010 Corolla. Check with the engineering support at Crutchfield for your Chrsler.
[ GEORGE  Oct 20, 2020 ]
A
I'm pretty sure the harnesses are made vehicle specific, so yes, as long as you specify make, model and year. The harness is well worth the (small) cost, it makes the install truly plug and play.
[ Doug  Oct 20, 2020 ]
Q
What's the polarity on the OEM speaker wire like how Do i noe which one is positive n negative when connecting a hi/low adapter?
[ Bictor  Oct 19, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
This ReadyHarness service will not help with installing a line output converter like you are referring to. As for the polarity of the speaker wire, that is usually addressed by the color coding of the stock wiring and that information is something that our technical support usually has on hand to help our customers with their installations. If you purchased your converter from us, I'd recommend calling them using their direct dial phone number that we included on the order invoice.

[ Pierce  Oct 14, 2020 ]

This service can only be ordered with receivers found on our site and only when they are ordered along with the installation parts needed to get it installed into the vehicle.

Q
Do you provide the pre-wired connection for the Car stereo upgrade: From 2016 dodge grand caravan(sirius) to Dual Damcpa 70. How should I order it?
[ Jianzhong  Oct 13, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
This service can only be ordered when purchasing the car stereo and the install gear from us on the same order. This way we can open the car stereo's box along with the radio install harnesses box to get both harnesses and connect the wires together. We do not sell that Dual receiver, but we do have a lot of other receivers and the install gear needed to make them work in the 2016 Grand Caravans. I recommend contacting an advisor using 1-800-324-9695 to get a personal recommendation on radio and install gear that can be ordered with this service

Q
Why can?t I add the ready harness Item # 264PASCON to my 2017 Kia Sportage radio order?
[ CJ  Sep 21, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
Hi CJ. I do apologize that you have been unable to add the Ready Harness service to your cart with your stereo purchase. The reason you are not able to add the service to your order, can be a result of several different factors. 1) Either the Ready Harness service isn't available for your vehicle due to wiring and electrical compatibilities 2) the Ready Harness service may have been temporarily suspended through our site in order for our team to keep up with the supply and demand of the service, or 3) you do not have the installation products required for your installation in your cart. Please contact us via online chat or by phone at 1-800-324-9695. We will be happy to take a look at this for you. If the Ready Harness is available for your vehicle, but it is only turned off on our site, an Advisor can place that order for you over the phone.

Q
Looking to install a Boss Audio BV9386NV in a 2011 Ford Expedition, no sync, no second row controls. Can you please make up a harness?
[ Chris  Sep 16, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
Hi Chris. The Ready Harness service is a custom harness that is built with both the wiring harness that adapt to your vehicle's factory stereo plugs, as well as to the pigtail harness that comes on the back of your new stereo. We are only able to offer the Ready Harness to customers who are purchasing the stereo and the installation package at the same time. If you already have the receiver you plan to use, the Ready Harness option would unfortunately not be available to purchase. Please call us at 1-800-324-9695, or chat with us online if we can help to answer any questions.

A
The ReadyHarness service is only going to be an option if you purchase the radio from Crutchfield. Since we don't carry that model Pioneer, we wouldn't be able to do the pre-wiring service. If you have any other questions, or want to look at radios that we do carry, you can connect with one of our product advisors here: https://www.crutchfield.com/I-rET1c290/S-SUliZgSTXG7/support/ContactUs.aspx

[ Codsack  Jan 11, 2020 ]
1 answer

Hi-the Crutchfield wiring harness may allow for this. Speak to a tech to be sure that you can connect ti the speakers without going through the amp. Worst case may be to locate the speaker wire at the amp and patch around it. Again, the tech should be able to assist.

Q
Looking for bv9386 Boss Audio compatibility harness with 2006 ford explorer with stw and second row dvd player - is this the one?
[ Michael  Nov 23, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
Hi Michael, thank you for your question. The Ready Harness service is something we offer our customers who are purchasing a stereo, and the needed vehicle installation gear at the same time. Our technicians crimp the connections from the factory harness adapter and the stereo that is being purchased, so when the new stereo is received, most of the wiring has already be completed by us, and it cuts down on the customers installation time. We will however, be able to provide you with the correct adapter harnesses for your vehicle. Please chat with an Advisor online or by phone at 1-800-324-9695. They will need to gather some additional information about your Explorer, to ensure we send you the proper harnesses.
[ Jess  Dec 05, 2019 ]  Staff

Will this harness be able to hook up to a power acoustik 6.5â?? touch screen head unit?
[ Karl  Oct 27, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
The Ready harness service is a service we offer when you buy a radio and install gear with us. The service is that we pre-connect the radio harness with the vehicle integration harnesses before shipping. As we do not carry Power acoustic radios, we could not do a Ready Harness service for it.

Q
With your ready harness, am I able to add an amplifier to the system in my 2016 Chevy Equinox and keep my factory head unit?
[ mike  Oct 22, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
No our ReadyHarness is a service in which we connect the harness from an aftermarket radio to the vehicle specific one. It is only available if you are purchasing a radio form us. If you want to add amps to your factory radio you probably want a digital signal processor or line output converter. You can connect with one of our friendly product advisors to see what the best option is for your Equinox: https://www.crutchfield.com/I-rET1c290/S-SUliZgSTXG7/support/ContactUs.aspx

Q
Would this harness work on a 2018 Nissan Sentra, to connect to a Sony XAV-AX5000?
[ Quincy  Jul 30, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
The ReadyHarness is a service where we connect the vehicle specific harnesses and SWC harness ( is applicable) to the new aftermarket radio harness. It is not a replacement for the recommended install package harness for your vehicle, it is an additional service we offer for those that want the majority of the wiring done for them!
[ Calvin  Aug 16, 2019 ]  Staff
Q
Friend is giving me a Boss radio (doesn't fit his car) - Model BVCP9685A. Is it possible to buy this harness from you to install in my 2007 Toyota FJ? You sell this model, so thought I'd ask. I don't want to splice wires if I can help it. I would also need to buy the Steering wheel controls.
[ Mike  Jul 29, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
Hi Mike, thank you for your question! The ready harness service can only be performed if a customer is purchasing their stereo and wiring from us at the same time. The stereo's wiring is actually a part of that harness service. Unfortunately, Boss stereos do not support the adapters needed for steering wheel controls, but we do have the harnesses needed to connect your new stereo to your factory plug in. Please chat with an Advisor online, or by phone at 1-800-324-9695. They will be able to build a cart for you that includes the wiring you will need for your install.

Hi Arthur, thank you for your question.

Hi Kerry, thanks for your question! The ready harness service can only be provided if you are purchasing a new stereo and the recommended installation gear from us.

Car stereos and vehicle wiring harnesses come with manuals that provide their wire code listings. In most cases, they are standardized so, connecting them yourself is just a matter of matching the colors. Our "ReadyHarness" pre-connect service attaches the leads of the stereo's harness to the leads of the vehicle harness before your order ships. So, it makes your stereo installation that much easier.

I have a Pioneer Avic-6100 already installed in my Lexus ES300 (2000) but want to change the unit to an Alpine INE-W977HD. Do I need only the Crutchfield ReadyHarness to do the swap or do I need another wire for my backup camera (Boyo Brand)?
[ LexRex300  Mar 17, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
The Pioneer radio you have installed and this Alpine both use the same mounting kit and same wiring interface to be installed into your ES300. This means you already have the vehicle specific gear needed to complete the install. If you want to reuse that gear, then this ReadyHarness service of ours cannot be used because we don't have a way to connect the Alpine's wires to the harness you already have in place. However, if you order new gear for that too, then this service can be used to get us to connect the Alpine's wires to the wires on the wiring interface. This Alpine receiver comes with a backup camera wiring adapter that allows it to work with a Boyo brand that has a composite video cable for connecting to a radio.

As far as I'm aware there are 3 options: 1) you can study the schematics and connect each wire individually using wire crimps; 2) you may be able to find an aftermarket harness that connects your particular stereo to your particular car; or 3) you can have crutchfield set up the harness for you so it just plugs into your car. I have done it each of the 3 ways. Option 1 is a tedious pain and you can mis-crimp a wire without knowing it. Total waste of time as far as I'm concerned. Option 2 is pretty good if you can find that particular harness and be sure it's the right one. Option 3 is the best in my mind- no guessing and it's plug and play when you install it (after you get the panel open). Any way you go, the crutchfield customer service is really helpful.
