Metra 70-1763 Receiver Wiring Harness
Connect a new car stereo in select 1984-96 Nissan and Infiniti vehicles
Item # 120701763 | MFR # 70-1763
Metra 70-1763 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 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.
Note: Your vehicle's wiring harness may not include a ground connection. If not, you'll need to make a ground connection between your new receiver and your car's metal chassis.

Works perfectly, although I would have liked the wire tips to be pre-scored so I would not have needed to strip them

Metra 70-1763 Receiver Wiring Harness Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
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.

Why did you buy this?
I bought the stereo and harness for a 25 year old car. Thanks. [ Robert Jun 20, 2017 ]
Ease of installation. [ David May 15, 2017 ]

We didn't want to cut the factory stereo adapter off to bare wires. I searched for weeks, but the local stores didn't carry what we needed to install an after market stereo. I found this product and it seems to be exactly what we need in our vehicle, so we ordered it. Happy Shopping Everyone! [ Laura Jan 07, 2017 ]
To make the actual installation faster. Preparing for the installation before removing parts of the interior means when the actual disassembly/reassembly is started, the actual installation will be plug and play. [ W Jan 01, 2017 ]
Recommended by Crutchfield, and they have yet to be wrong about anything they have suggested. [ DONNIE Oct 23, 2016 ]

1 answer I have a 1992 300zx with a Bose system. I'm wanting to remove the radio, speakers and factory amplifiers to put in a new system. Do I need to get a wiring harness for the radio? Will this make the cars ecu have any problems? Is there anything else in my car that would be affected by removing it the amps or radio? [ Mattk Oct 31, 2015 ]
