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.
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):
These came to be very handy
Installed easily - HIGHLY Recommend using Posi-ProductsT Car Stereo Wiring Harness Connectors - Great Cust Service on my matching my vehicles - 1990 Nissan PU - wire colors! Agree with recommending wires coming prescored!
Works perfectly, although I would have liked the wire tips to be pre-scored so I would not have needed to strip them
Worked great except the ground wire was wrong. It had the black ground wire going into nothing (air/no pin) on my truck connector. I had to move it after having burned out two 10A fuses when I realized my dash lights weren't working and testing for a real ground. All works now though :)
Cons: Have to double check all the wires to make sure it's correct, and ground wasn't correct, I had to move it to a different pin.
Easy to use and perfect for the Nissan
1992 Nissan Hardbody PU Perfect fit with the the Nissan wiring connection. However, I ended up not using the harness due to the poor installation instructions which came with my new Clarion radio.
These adapters are generally great, but this one is only for the "standard" audio equipment on the 1991 Nissan Pathfinder SE. Mine had a premium audio option with a Sony single CD deck and rear-speaker-only amp. I couldn't use the rear speaker section of the adapter. However, the Crutchfield tech was really helpful and pulled up the diagram and talked me through my different option scenarios and gave me tips on where to splice in (for the rear speakers) and also specs on the OEM amp vs. my aftermarket stereo. All in all, a great experience with a knowledgeable tech and everything worked out well.
Pros: Easy to install, clear wiring diagram on back of package.
Cons: Only works with "standard" audio equipment. Rear harness needs to be bypassed and hard-wired for 1991 Nissan Pathfinder SE with "premium" Sony CD/rear speaker amp audio option. Not a big deal, but you could also use a diagram and skip the harness completely since you have to solder the rear speaker wires at the dash anyway. My only reason for using these adapters is to preserve the OEM wiring harnesses/connectors. If I have to solder have in-situ, I might as well solder the whole thing there.
This don't fit 85 Nissan 300 ZX
It fit right for my 1994 Pathfinder. Everything works great.
Pros: Easy to install. Functions right.
Needed this to connect my new Kenwood Excelon KDC-X598 and new Polk Audio speakers in my '93 Nissan 300ZX. Instructions were clear and the process was easy (and fun). I liked how the wires were already prepared for me to connect - needed only to pull off a half inch of covering on the ends.
Pros: Perfect for my needs; ready to connect
Fits like a glove. Great instructions.
I was only looking for a basic in dash replacement for my 240sx. The sale price caught my eye, and not to mention it's a Sony product. My music library thru an ipod nano pretty much stays put inside most of the time. I also listen to Pandora quite a bit and being able to access it through the head unit is something now that I can't live without. This unit, coupled with my powered subwoofer, makes my 2 hour daily work commute much more liveable. And more importantly, CRUTCHFIELD SERVICE ROCKS!!!
Pros: Full of high end features for the price, excellent sound quality once dialed in
Cons: Takes some time and patience to navigate through the menus. If you're the type of person that prefers designated knobs for basic functions, i. e. bass, treble, fader, etc. , then this is not for you
right fitting for my nissan
Pros: plug and play
eazy to ues
Wire Harness provided by Crutchfield was a perfect match for my vehicle car stereo installation, no worries.
The part I got was not the correct wiring harness. Had to go buy another one.
As always, beginner or pro, you could always count on Crutchfield to meet your expectation.
Fit Nissan exactly.
I just connected the wires by twisting the copper/aluminum wires together and taping with electrical tape. In normal use this will do fine.
A real lifesaver, I could'nt have installed my new stereo without it.
The quality was good, the fit was good, the instructions were good. How or better yet, why would anyone do an instalation without these?
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.

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 ]

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you. [ Krissy Nov 03, 2015 ] Staff
