Overview

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

Metra 70-5520 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.

Connections:

  • 12V constant power
  • 12V switched power
  • chassis ground
  • 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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The product fit perfectly in my car. I was a little worried that it wouldn't, but it did. It took a little while to splice all the wires to the new stereo system, but it wasn't horrible. I haven't had any problems at all since buying this product.

Pros: The wires colors matched up with the wires I was splicing them to so that made the process very simple. Also the wires all had a little cap on them which was very convenient.

Cons: It took a while to splice all the wires, but was not horrible.

This tailpiece attaches to your new radio so that you don't need to cut into your car's wiring. This makes it easy to remove the radio later without permanant damage.

Pros: Terrific way to wire a new radio but not harm your vehicles wiring.

Cons: None

I initially was sent this harness which worked great, but my car came with a factory amp and sub that was unaccounted for. Be sure when pulling the factory head unit to check if there are other connectors that are used, and if you have an amp/sub already installed. You will need the other Metra harness 70-5521.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The easiest way to connect your aftermarket radio to to your car. No need to guess anything. Just match the colors of the wires of this adapter to the wires of your new radio and presto! You can even double check by verifying the wire function (written on it) with the function of radio wire described in the installation instructions. In summary, as easy as plug and play.

Pros: As easy as color matching Plug and Play

Cons: If you are Daltonic, you will be in trouble.

2007 Ford F-250 SD Diesel. This harness is a great fit. I think they should add pin 18 to the harness, I had to move the "dimmer" wire to pin 18 to take advantage of the SWC on the factory harness. This was pretty easy to do and help in a more seamless installation.

Pros: easily modified to make work perfect fit.

Cons: Missing PIN 18

For a basic install this harness would work perfectly, that is if you do not have steering wheel controls. I had to splice into my main harness to get steering wheel control signal. Other than that the connector fits snug and all other connections are good

Pros:

Cons: No steering wheel control wire

Get out your soldering and heat gun.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Now this harness was easy to install but there'a a wire in pin number 24 that should have been loose so instead I had to go straight from my head unit wiring harness to the factory one. But overall made installation very easy.

Pros: connects directly to the factory Harness

Cons: This connector is used for multiple makes so don't panic if it says "Ford" and your car is a Hyundai.. Also if the 24 pin is connected you're going to be doing some work around on the harnesses

This harness is a great product. I was able to match the wires on the new radio to the OEM harness in my garage. It was soldered, with shrink sleeves applied by reading guides on wires.

Pros: Works like a charm and allows you to take time on installing correctly.

Cons: I am getting older and some letters were hard to see.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought a Pioneer radio to replace the stock radio in my daughter's 2006 Hyundai Sonata. It was easy to install with the Crutchfield instructions and install kit (faceplate/mounting bracket and wiring harness). Thanks to the factory wiring harness mating connector (part of free install kit), I was able to solder together the 14 wires that were needed and do a neat and easy job on my workbench. Then, in the car, I just plugged it in and screwed it down. Nice and easy.

Pros: Good clear description of the wiring. Thick enough wire to handle the job. Long enough wires to make building a wiring harness easy.

Cons: None.

All wires matched up color for color except for ... orange and orange /white.. Tech support told me to connect together .. after I got everything back together the radio worked great but my right directional would not turn off !! I thought i damaged something when i dropped the steering column down during the install. After another call to tech support suggesting I disconnect the orange / orange white connection it all worked right .. They need to make a note of this ... So in installed the Radio twice !! Second time was faster !!

Pros: no cutting ...

Gary from Chillicothe, OH on 3/13/2016

2010 Ford F-150 XL
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

2010 F150, standard cab, with integrated radio. The harness plugs right in, however you need to extend the red power wire to the radio fuse #41 in the passengers side kick panel fuse box because there is no matching power wire in the factory harness to match the Metra harness.

Pros: Fit, works, didnt have to cut the factory harness.

Cons: On my vehicle I had to run my own power wire, this was not mentioned anywhere in the master sheet for my truck however a Crutchfield tech advised me that this was required to make the radio work.

Sorry, but the wiring harness was not the right one for my 2003 Grand Marquis. My installer went to a local department store to get the right one and it cost me an extra $25.

Pros: It was free from Crutchfield

It worked great with no issues. I'm so glad I called Crutchfield Tech support BEFORE I started the project. As it turns out, the orange wires have to be cut-off and not used on my 2006 F-150 or those wires could fry the receiver ... something the instructions don't tell you.

Pros: Easy to do once you connect/crimp all of the wires to the receiver harness

Cons: none

Product worked perfectly to wire my receiver to my 2005 f-150 without having to cut the factory harness. Colors matched up with the receivers pigtail I just used butt connectors to connect the receiver harness to the Metra harness. A+++

CeeJay from Utah on 12/10/2015

2006 Ford F-250 Super Duty
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've installed many a stereo using harnesses, and the ones I've got are double-ended. One plug for the stereo and one for the vehicle. They have all been "Plug here and Plug here, and Done". This adapter "harness" is just a plug with wires. It took me 30+ minutes to solder and heat shrink (Never use mechanical connectors!) this plug to the plug that came with the stereo. Granted, it was a good price ($0.00), but I would have paid more for an actual two-ended harness than just a plug I had to wire myself.

Pros: Works like it is supposed to work

Cons: Takes quite awhile to connect to stereo's factory connector. Instructions say to use mechanical connectors which is a Horrible thing to do - Solder and heat shrink everything!

Easy to do wire harness!

Veronikka from Indiana on 9/29/2015

2005 Ford Five Hundred
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Every time I've installed an aftermarket head unit into a car, I've used one of these adapters to connect to the head unit's harness. Saves splicing into the vehicle's harness and allows an easy return to stock should you decide to get rid of the vehicle, and want to keep your good stereo. The only flaw with this harness is the attempt to fit so many cars that it has wires that aren't always needed (like the amp wires for a Sonata - not needed in a Ford Five Hundred), and missing wires that are needed (like the steering wheel control wire for aforementioned Ford). One would think, that if they're going to put in wires that not all vehicles would use, that they would put in all the wires to fit all the marques that it claims to fit, so as to eliminate the possibility of having to do any harness modifications (either to this harness, which is what I did, or to the one in the vehicle, i.e. splicing a wire)

Pros: No splicing into the harness (except for the missing steering wheel wire - but there's a way around it)

Cons: Missing the steering wheel control wire.

Fit like a charm!

This thing does what it is supposed to, make your new connection easy and mostly trouble free. The wiring diagram I had was a little off, but the Crutchfield guy new his business, and told me what to do. By the way, this tech guy was incredible, with little explanation, it was like he was standing over my shoulder, and told me exactly what I needed to know about which wire to use and not use. Thanks dude!

Pros: Perfect fit Easy to use

Cons: Color of some of the wires were not an exact match Directions were not precise for some wire connections (just call Crutchfield tech guy, he was a miracle worker, and perhaps a savant)

David from Maryland on 7/25/2015

2007 Hyundai Sonata
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wish I had read the review from the guy in Florida sooner and saved me the frustration. It is missing pin connection 24 for my '07 Hyundai Sonata; the infamous black/green wire. I did not know that and experienced poor to no AM radio reception. After struggling with this for a couple days, called Crutchfield and talked to tech support. Told to splice into the wire harness on the vehicle. After doing so, it worked like a charm. This is why I use Crutchfield!! The only thing that would have made this product better is to have a wire included with this harness that could be plugged into the missing port so one would not have to splice into the vehicle harness. Thanks Crutchfield tech support for the answer. Very happy it works!!

Pros: Other than the missing green/black wire issue, worked perfectly. Made rest of install easy.

Cons: Really think that a wire could be supplied with kit to address the antenna and green/black wire issue for Hyundai's.

Almost Perfect, But....

David from Florida on 6/8/2015

2006 Hyundai Sonata
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Almost perfect but one glaring flaw - it is missing one wire in the harness, the infamous Hyundai "frog" wire. The pinout instructions sent by Crutchfield show it as missing and point to the EMPTY pin slot with the note, quote, "For all 2006-'08 Hyundai Sonatas: Connect the Power Antenna Wire on the new receiver to the factory Green/Black Wire matching this location (bottom of illustration) on the factory harness disconnected from the factory radio." This is a REAL problem if you need this wire. The only solution is to cut into the car's wiring harness and rig your own wire or connector around this one.

Pros: Has MOST of the wires you need.

Cons: Missing one wire in the harness.

All I can say is WOW! I had not installed a stereo in a car for over 20 years. The Metra harness adapter made my install on my wife's Focus go so smoothly it was almost unbelievable. No meters to read or making educated guesses about which wire is which. Just match color for color while following along with the instructions and the manual for the receiver. Again, so easy and full proof I can not say enough. But I can say this, MY CAR IS NEXT!! And you can beat the farm I will order these again for the receiver and the new speakers. And Crutchfield's "What Fits My Car" section of the website was dead on perfect and everything arrived in 2 days as promised in perfect condition. Best thing of all, my install of the Crutchfield stereo saved me $200 compared to the local stereo shop guys. THANKS CRUTCHFIELD, SEE YOU ON THE NEXT ORDER.

Pros: EVERYTHING. These !@#$ing things rock. I wish I would have known about these 20 years ago.

Instructions were easy to go by, just wish they had the butt connectors supplied with the adaptor.

Pros: Great instructions

Cons: No butt connectors, but that is not that big an issue.

Metra wiring harness

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

At first, I was upset because I had to connect the receiver harness to the Metra harness. I was under the impression that it all came set up ready to plug in. But the included wiring diagrams sent via e-mail from Crutchfield were very clear and precise. The Metra harness wire color codes matched those of the harness for the receiver. The color shades were a bit different, but green was green, green/black was green/black, etc. You will need to purchase the appropriated closed end crimp connectors and a crimping tool if you do not already have them. You will also need a small guage wire stripper as well to strip the ends of some of wires that are not prepped. All in all it was 12 connections that I had to make. Don't let this intimidate you though. This can be done inside on the kitchen table before you take it out to install. It is very easy since all the color codes matched up.

Pros: - You do not have to splice into your factory harness - Color codes all matched making wire pairing a snap

Cons: - You may need to buy tools and connectors

Does Not Fit '03 Grand Marquis

CL.MA from Phila. PA on 1/29/2015

I ordered this for an '03 Grand Marquis and it is not even close to a proper fit. This harness is about 2 inches wide and the connector on the car is very small, about 1 inch. Would not recommend anyone buy this.

Pros:

Cons:

Multiple fits

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have a Ford Focus, so it was confusing when the instructions talked about other brands of vehicles. In the end I just followed the color codes on the instructions and they matched exactly with the Sony Radio I was installing.

Pros: Fit my 2006 Ford Focus

Cons: No included wire nuts or crimp connects. I soldered my wires, so that was not really an issue with me.
