Overview

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

Metra 70-1677-1 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 it 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:

Note: The 12V constant power lead may not be present in your car. If not, and your receiver requires a constant 12V memory lead (most do), run a wire directly to the battery or an appropriate un-switched fuse.

  • 12V constant power
  • 12V switched power
  • chassis ground
  • power antenna turn-on
  • dimmer
  • left front speaker +/-
  • right front speaker +/-
  • left rear speaker +/-
  • right rear speaker +/-

Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts — please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so. You can also call an Advisor for more information.

Worked really well in 1985 GMC Sierra Classic. Plugged right into factory harness. No issues

Metra 70-1677-1 Receiver Wiring Harness

Anonymous from Flower Mound, TX on 2/14/2017

1987 Chevrolet Corvette
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product for a clean(er) install. The instructions were good enough but not great. There was also a wire or two that I had to figure out that the plug/play harness did not address. (surely this was unique to my make/model). Overall a must-have for replacing the head unit and I am amazed that it was 98% matching the OEM wiring setup.

Pros: Able to preserve the original wiring harness.

Cons: Not 100% plug/play - you may have to think and/or do additional web research.

Jeff from Oak Creek, WI on 7/13/2016

1988 Pontiac Fiero
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a perfect fit to plug into the fiero wiring harness with out cutting up the fire harness. However, wire colors do not match, so you have to match the correct new radio speaker outputs to this harness speaker output wires. Take your time and match the speaker output for speaker out put and everything work as expected.

Pros: Works well, no cutting into fiero wiring.

Cons: 25 year old wire colors are not the same as todays standard. Not a big deal, you just have to take your time and match them up. Crutchfield does provide a color wiring diagram. Just match it up with the new radio diagram and everything will work well.

Corey from oliver springs, TN on 2/22/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Product allowed for a much cleaner install. Wires are color matched and made connectivity much simpler. The only issue I had was with the constant power and ground source. This most likely was just an issue on my application (89 Suburban) however it cost me some time trouble shooting my ground problem before I had my system dialed in. Overall this is a great product.

Pros: Quality and color coordination

Cons: Not completely plug and go for my applicaiton

Charity from Augusta, GA on 7/24/2014

1992 Chevrolet Blazer S10
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good Product

Pros: Installed first radio in less than an hour, mostly due to the simplicity of the wire harness.

Cons: This is not a one piece plug like the original stock piece. Instead, these are 3 separate plugs. Lack of directions for the novice knowing to attach same color wires from harness to wires harness that attached to radio... since additional wires on both sides. That would've made it a little quicker.

This is a good product and makes wiring a snap. The only issue on my older Chevrolet Blazer is there is 2 different pigtails and the directions for the connection of the illumination wire is a little vague. One call to tech support and all is well.

Pros: Ease of use and quality product. Its free with the head unit!

Cons: Everything is good.

Jason from Junction city ks on 7/6/2013

1990 GMC S15
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The harness is great. I used it with my 1990 gmc s15 and it connected perfect. The s15 has a few different plugs so I was worried that I would get them mixed up. But there are grooves on this harness that won't let you plug in the wrong one on the wrong whole. It also comes with long enough wires to do any thing you would need. The color diagram was spot on and perfect when hooking it it up with the head unit.

Pros: Everything about it

Cons: Nothing at all

Poor instructions

DonP from St. Charles, Mo. on 3/8/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The product itself is okay but the instructions for the harness are pretty much non existing. The speaker wires from this harness to the PAC converter is pretty much a color code match but the Antenna/Amp power wire connection was guess work. I had an additional wire that was not mentioned anywhere in any of the instructions. After 4 calls to the Tech support, I suggested this wire may be why I didn't have sound and he agreed. It was the reason. and now I have sound. Need a bit more detail on how to connect the blue/white antenna/amp tripper wire. It's labled Remote Control wire which leads you to believe its some kind of antenna for the remote control for the radio.

Pros: Seems well made.

Cons: Incomplete instructions for my application but your Tech Support is great.

The combination of instructions, drawings, parts, wires, and hardware is FABULOUS! It is so calming to know that you have everything that you need, so that you can just concentrate on figuring out how to use it.

Pros: Everything is the right size, it all fits together, the step-by-step directions are written by people who know what they're talking about, and it's truly a CUSTOM kit-not some generic "in-the-ballpark" junk.

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 SWIC adapter is required & sold separately.

Fits my vehicle and makes a head unit install headache free. Metra is a leader in installation accessories and of course it's from Crutchfield! So I know it will fit due to their extensive vehicle research into what install accessories you'll need. Plus Crutchfield's tech support and customer service is the best available!

1 question already asked

We do not carry the factory radio side of the connector. If you want the factory side of the plug you are probably going to need to check a junkyard (I doubt a dealer would have this). Our Tech team will also be able to help you connect the bare wire directly to the wires on a receiver. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help you figure out the best next step. [ Jeff  Feb 13, 2014 ]  Staff
