Metra 70-1000 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.

This was a perfect match to our 87 wagoneer XJ.. could not be happier to finally have found one.

Cons: None

1986 AMC Eagle
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This was the only adapter available for my 1986 Eagle. I hooked it up to my Alpine CDA-105 unit (Which does fit using the OEM radio bracket) It all fits in like it was meant to be there and with my new door and rear speakers and I got mirrors shaking again. I'm pretty happy with not having to chop up my harness just to get some music.

Pros: Don't have to cut a harness that would be hard to replace

Cons: Zero. It works perfectly.

Crutchfield has it all! I was amazed.

1987 AMC Eagle
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was amazed that Crutchfield had a wiring harness for my 87 AMC Eagle radio. I didn't want to mess up the wiring harness from the car and this made it perfect to fit and plug in (almost a plug n play). The JVC receiver works fantastic thanks to the wiring harness. Thank you Crutchfield.

Pros: Direct fit, plenty of length to work with, quick delivery time.

Cons: None


Hands-on research

Product Research


Crutchfield Wiring Harness: Crutchfield wiring harnesses prevent 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 Crutchfield 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 Crutchfield 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 Crutchfield 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.
