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.
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.
Average Customer Review(s):
Easy plug and play.
Pros: Easy to use
Awesome product! Works as expected, installation a breeze!
Best investment ever. Saves you so much time! I am a newbie and thought this was easy to use. I cut the ground wire from the aftermarket deck and used that piece to pigtail this harness with the deck's harness, added a terminal, and drilled a hole in the chassis behind the dash via self tapping screw to establish a solid ground.
Pros: Ease of use. Saves you time. Wires are labeled. Economical. Plug and play.
Very straightforward to install. The instructions were very clear with what each color wire is for.
Pros: Easy to install, clearly labeled instructions with what each wire is for.
Perfect. Very easy to use, worked like a charm. I had to call Crutchfield to resolved a question regarding one of the wires I did not need to use and the one that I used for the antenna kit.
Pros: Straightforward install
Worked as it is supposed to. No problems with wiring or install.
Pros: Good quality and price.
Easy to wire and plugs directly into factory harness.
Pros: Plug n play
Makes factory to aftermarket connection simple and easy process
Pros: Easy to use made job simple
What would an aftermarket radio install be without one of these?
Pros: Works great and the install instructions were no problem.
Cons: None that I had.
Clearly color coded to match up with the wiring harness from my new stereo. Many people don't realize this but you have to wire nut this thing to the wiring harness that comes with your aftermarket stereo. Takes a few minutes but to do but not difficult. Also, don't worry if this wiring harness has more wires than your stereo wiring harness. Just wire nut and tape the extra wires so they don't touch each other.
Pros: Stereo sounds great. Easy to match up to after market stereo wiring harness.
Perfect fit and finish, made installation of my new stereo a breeze. Thanks!
Pros: Perfect. Works great, fits great.
The connector fits perfectly into the factory radio wiring harness with identical colors for the aftermarket stereo. Everything was there.
Pros: Exact fit connector and wiring
easy to install on a 06 honda civic
Seems to be a solid product. Instructions were good enough and for the price, it was more effective to buy this adapter instead of splicing wires directly to the car.
Cons: Wish it was a few dollars cheaper. I had to pay for mine, so if it was free with a stereo purchase I wouldn't have any cons about it.
Works great. Plastic connector feels a bit flimsy, but no problems thus far.
Used for a double-din install on our Civic DX sedan (had the factory radio installed) and was painless. The wires were already pre-stripped and Crutchfield's wiring diagram made it even easier to match with the Alpine double din radio I was installing
Pros: Pre-stripped wires, wiring diagram that Crutchfield provided was on point!
Fit 2011 Honda civic Lx
Pros: Fit my yr of Honda.
Cons: None so far
Fits into the Honda radio plug perfectly. Made after market radio installation much easier than expected.
Pros: Pre-stripped wires. Perfect fit with Honda radio plug.
I used this harness in 2009 Honda Civic. All I had to do was match color of wires and solder and connect to the new Pioneer Radio. Worked fine.
Pros: Makes easy to install new Radio
The pin-outs are spot on, and the harness end plugs in snug to the car harness but easily separated if needed. There is a DIY thread on 8thCivic forums on how to wire this guy up with RCA plugs which allows the retention of the factory amplifier and Sub on 8th gen Si's and other premium sound 8th generation Civics.
Pros: Low cost. Pin-outs are accurate. Great build quality.
no problems at all
Pros: works perfectly, fits
It fits. Not much else to say.
This wiring harness was for my 2008 Honda Fit and a double din JVC unit. The harness worked great. The color coding was right. I was a tiny bit unclear about the remove amp/antenna turn on (both had to be spliced into one wire) but figured this out. Every thing went together without a problem and it works great.
Pros: Well labeled. Everything works great.
Cons: Amp/Antenna wires are supposed to be spliced together and this is not made clear.
Makes for an easy install
Pros: Helps on install
Product worked as designed and saved time.
Pros: Saved time
This was a perfect fit for the Honda Insight.
Did its job well, wires were easy to splice and well-labeled.
Pros: -easy to splice -plenty of wire length
The molex connector fit perfectly and the wiring was a snap. Very visible and easy to use color coding for merging the wires.
Pros: Easy to use, clean look, minimal bulk
This wiring harness is a snap to install.
Pros: Easy to connect and install
Cons: need to hook up the blue lead of the antenna adapter to the blue lead of the head unit this info wasnt up front.
Used this in a 2008 CRV LX. Worked perfectly. Installed a Pioneer head unit. Crutchfield is the best, as always!
Pros: Simple to install. Great build quality. Color coded. Received it very quickly.
20 minute with a soldering iron and it plugged right up. Wire colors are industry standard. Huzzah!
harness is easy to use for its intentive purpose
Pros: does what its designed to do
Worked perfect on my 06 civic. It matched the pioneer CD player I put in.
This harness connector is the perfect way to install the stereo in any car. The wires on the connector were color matched to the Sony stereo which eliminated any confusion and it took only about 20 minutes to solder and insulate all of the wires. Just remember to put the shrink tubing on the wire before soldering it or you will have to use tape or re do it.
Pros: A perfect match for my needs!
Everything you could want.
Pros: Ease of use and instructions
doesn't get any easier. all the wires matched up with the receivers wires by color, just solder together shrink tube to protect then plug the 2 ends into their respective jacks and your done.
Pros: color matched wires and plug
Connected prefect to factory, didn't use both of the factory harnesses. Connected to an Alpine 147BT with zero issues, had ever wire I needed and more. I would trust this brand again without and worries.
Pros: Matched all wires perfect!
Easy hook up with color match wires
Does exactly what it should, makes wiring in a new radio a breeze.
Pros: Easy to use.
Requires soldering, but I knew that going in, and it wasn't very difficult to do, even for a first timer like myself (although I did a little research about it before jumping in). Crutchfield's search engine correctly matched my car to the appropriate wire harness, and made finding and purchasing it easy. All of the wires I required for my pioneer head unit (pioneer deh x3500ui) were present on this harness.
Pros: -Correctly matched my 2012 Honda Insight, and will make swapping head units in the future simple
This is a good wiring harness for the plug it does cover, but there are two plugs to cover in the 2008 Honda CRV and this kit does not cover the second plug. That forces you to do some wire cutting and soldering in the dash if you want to use your steering wheel controls for your stereo. If they had covered both plugs you could retain all your vehicle features easily.
Pros: * well documented * simple to wire up and solder ahead of time * proper fit of plug * covers all but 2 wires needed to wire a stereo properly
Cons: * leaves off two critical wires you must fish out of the dash manually and solder inside the dash to get working steering wheel - volume controls * leaves off two critical wires that then make the AUX audio port in the vehicle rear a dead port
Pros: Works like a charm
The product installed as I expected. It would be nice if it had a connector on the opposite end that matched my Pioneer receiver, rather than pigtail end. But overall it is a good product. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another one if I needed it.
The color coded wiring allow for straightforward installation.
Pros: It works
This was so easy anyone can do professional grade work. Keep up the good work guys.
Pros: The price
This wire harness was exact for 2006 Civic LX sedan. mostly good quality good color to wires. snaps right into the factory plug.
Pros: good fit
This harness mated perfectly with the factory harness in our 2009 CR-V EX-L.
Pros: Perfect fit and quite a timesaver
I had issues with this harness due to the cheap material it was built. The red wire (ignitionpower pin inside the harness was missing) didn't work and I thought the unit was DOA. So I wasted 4 hours in calling tech support and installing and checking cables and fuses couple of time. Finally found this harness was faulty and thankfully Crutchfield has sent a replacement and then the unit worked finally.
Pros: Works if works
Cons: Cheap quality.
Simplistic install unless you're colorblind.
Pros: Color-coded wires allowed simple install
Cons: None I can think of
Just sit at your bench with your soldering iron for a few minutes, matching color-coded wires, clearly stated in a directions photo. Afterward, you can go to your car and just plug it into the stock harness block. Then, your electrical installation is done.
Pros: `works & fits the stock plastic socket
The harness is well build, has clear labeling of what each wire is, and fit the connectors just fine.
Worked well and easy to install
Pros: Worked precisely.
Works. A few of the wires I did not need to use.
I had a minor issue with the illumination wire described in the instructions...tech support helped me sort it out though
Pros: works as advertised
Cons: Mislabeled illumination wire colors
This matched up perfectly with the OEM radio harness except for the speed input wire. Had to bypass the plug and splice one wire just beyond the OEM plug. Not sure why they would not include that one input.
This harness fits my 08 CR-V like a glove! Connecting the color-coded wires to the aftermarket head unit was a no brainer. Everything works well after installation--even the dashboard (factory) tweeters! You'll lose the factory subwoofer and AUX though, since those come from two separate harnesses. In fact, the EX-L model head unit comes with five different harnesses, but this one is certainly the most important one. No complaints whatsoever!
Nothing more to say, but it works as described.
This harness works Exactly as the description says. You can do all of your wire splicing sitting down at the kitchen table. The color codes on the harness were exactly the same as on the radio. Also when I go to sell the car I have everything still intact to re-install the factory radio back into the car with minimal hassle.
No problems. Easy to use and hooks up easily.
Wow, super cool, easy!!
cables fit perfect. very easy to install. no complaints very happy
Fits perfect. What else can I say.
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 vehicles 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 & sold separately.

In most vehicles, the factory tweeters are wired in parallel with the front channel speakers and will be retained when a new stereo is installed, yes. I hope that helps! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=5 [ Ryan Mar 25, 2016 ] Staff
