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.

Combined with the ready harness service and perfect! I didn't have to cut any wiring and had a perfect connection from point to point.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

What a terrific idea this is. Just match the colors! Couple of wires left over, but they were clearly marked for steering wheel control and power antenna (power antenna? Really? Even I'm not that much of a dinosaur!) I chose to solder the connectors, which seemed easier than trying to fit plug-in connectors. Took about 20 minutes once the iron heated up. Don't forget to slip the shrink tubing on before you join the wires! The plug was a perfect mate to the factory receptacle.

Pros: Easy peasy, just match the colors.

Cons: Not one.

Straightforward match color and splice

Scott from Bluff Dale, TX on 6/22/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

All wires matched colors, so it was simply a tedious chore to make and crimp connections. Should have come WITH connectors, not have to go find some. Couple of wires didn't have a match, not unexpected, so taped them off.

Pros: Straight up simple -

Cons: Connectors not provided - if you don't have some already, it's another trip to the store to get them.

There is a wire in my harness ('07 F150) to power a backup camera but this pin is missing in the metra harness. I was able to move an unused pin so I wouldn't have to splice but it would be nice if every wire in the factory harness had a mate in the Metra harness

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This made the install very easy in my 2006 F-150. However, dinging one star because it didn't include the wires for pins 18 and 19 which were required for the steering wheel controls, so I had to tap into them behind the factory harness which was a real pain. Is it too much to ask for 2 more wires?

Pros: Makes installation easy, exact fit, clearly labeled and colors matched Pioneer wiring harness.

Cons: Didn't include wires for pins 18 and 19 for steering wheel controls

Set it and forget it. Simply efficient installation. A no brainer for the brainless to install. Unless you don't know how to read, then you might be screwed, unless, of course, your factory wires match the wiring harness precisely.

Pros: Snaps On, Snaps Off

Cons: Are you serious, none dude.

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.

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.

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

Cons: No steering wheel control wire

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

Everything fit well and the right wires were on the piece. The only problem was the instructions labeled this for a Hyundai so it added a cloud of doubt over the install since I was not sure the Ford and Hyundai piece would be the same.

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 ...

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

Plugs directly into factory harness. Has bare wires to be connected to aftermarket harness. Works good.

Pros: Works as designed Wires right length (long enough to allow movement of radio while placing, but not too long/cumbersome) Easy to use

Cons: No crimp connectors (not surprising, but would have made the product better)

Perfect in every way.

Just like Mary Poppins as "Practically Perfect In Every Way". Wiring instructions make this adapter kit painless and SO easy. This was my third adapter purchased from Crutchfield and all 3 for my other installs were equally as easy. A MUST HAVE for anyone's install project.

Pros: Great instructions.

Cons: Gray and gray-black wire colors were a bit difficult to differentiate.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Metra wiring harness

Derek G from Chester, Virginia on 2/5/2015

2006 Ford F-150
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

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This connector harness fit perfectly in our 2009 Ford Fusion. Be sure to keep the plastic bag that the harness comes in so you can reference the connection colors on the back of the bag. I couldn't imagine trying to splice directly into the factory harness of the car and not using this Metra harness. It is so much easier with the harness and worth the $10 to avoid working with the short factory harness in the car.

Pros: Easy to work with and good fit to factory connector.

Cons: None

Ed S from Nebraska on 12/3/2014

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

Easy; complete. Makes hooking up the radio to the Hyundai a snap. My only problem, which was handled with a call to Crutchfield, was that the stock radio had two connectors but the instructions only referred to one. Turns out only one is needed and that these cars often have two, one of which is apparently not needed - which seems odd to me - but the new radio is working perfectly.

Pros: Matches the car's harness as it should.

Cons: Instructions didn't mention the extra connector from the stock radio. Seems like they could add a line saying "ignore the orange plug from your stock radio."

There isn't much that I can say about this harness. I have a 2004 F150 XLT with a factory single disc, AM/FM, Cassette stereo without premium sound and without factory sub. This harness plugged right into my factory wiring. I soldered the ends of this and the head units harness for the best possible connection then finished off with some high quality shrink tubing. This is highly recommended no matter the installation. All the wires work and connect up as they should and are color coded to match aftermarket head unit wiring. I know some have issues in other makes but I can only speak for my own install. It works as it should.

The instructions that Crutchfield were pretty good but I did end up needing to call a couple times for help. Crutchfield really knows what they are doing and were very helpful with installation questions. The wiring harness is of good quality, the wire ends are pre-stripped (makes life easier) The colors matched my new radio perfectly so I can't complain.

Ford Freestar Radio Connector Adapter

Stephen M from Cincinnati on 7/5/2014

2004 Ford Freestar
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The adapter works well enough, but there were two wires that were green with black stripes. One was also marked with several gold dashes as were several other wires. The other wires were all Positive conductors, so I made the assumption that all wires with the gold dashes were Positive. I tested my theory by connecting the harness with wire nuts before soldering all connections. The temporary hookup worked perfectly. As always, I then soldered all of the connection and used heat-shrink tubing to insulate all of the conductors. With this and a few well-placed zip-ties and the final result is a professionally finished harness.

Pros: The adapter works just fine.

Cons: The instructions were a bit vague and not recommended for amateurs.

Just match the color coding to the receiver harness, again solder and heat shrink tubing over all connections. No staticy crimps or unwinding electrical needed in the audio harness.

Pros: It just plugs in

Cons: None. Make sure you tell your advisor the build date of your vehicle especially Ford; late M.Y. builds ie. July will have the upcoming years harness in the vehicle and the exact M.Y. part won't fit.

There are no functional issues with this adapter. Just take your time and LOOK CLOSELY when you are pairing the adapter wires to the receiver's harness as the color match can be difficult to see with certain wires. Use pigtail connectors and have them on hand before you begin.

2006 Ford Mustang
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Well, I had thought from reading the info page on the product I bought, that the included installation gear was somehome "plug and play." So I expected the harness would have attachments on one end that clicked into the factory harness, and then attachments on the other end that clicked into the receiver. I did not read anything about having to splice wires to make it work.... But this was my first install, so what do I know. Anyway, it actually went pretty smooth- with decent instructions, and thank goodness for color coded wires. Oh, and there were wires left off on both sides that just didn't go to anything at all. It was certainly worth what I paid for it, (free with radio purchase)

Pros: Free with purchase.

Cons: Step One, splice the blue wire with the white dashes, to the blue wire with the white stripe (or is it just the blue wire with no markings???)... Repeat this process dozens of times...

Not exciting or glamorous but...

As my title says, this product is not glamorous, or exciting or high tech. It just does it's job perfectly. The plug end was a dead perfect match for my 2007 Focus. The wire gauge was identical to that from my head unit. The wire insulation cut clean for my wire stripper without stretching and tolerated the heat of soldiering. Color coding was a close enough match to my head unit that there was absolutely no confusion.

Pros: Does what it is supposed to perfectly.

Made my install a breeze. If you're complaining about having to splice wires then you should just drop the coin and take your rig in to have it done by someone that's going to use this same harness and connect it the same way and charge you for it. Was able to use three of the empty slots on my harness to dial in my steering wheel connections instead of splicing into the backside. Customer service was dead on and emailed me a second diagram pinpointing the locations for the steering connections. Tell me who else will do that for you??

Wise Soothsayer from McKinney, TX on 12/4/2012

2005 Ford Focus ZX4
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Connectors and wire appear to be good quality. Perfect fit with the factory harness. Be prepared for the three most hated words in the guy's vocabulary ... "some assembly required..." You get a connector with unterminated wires. The radio will have the other connector. You will have to either solder and tape/shrink tube or crimp connectors on the cable. At least 10 wires. Not a hard job but needs to be neat especially if you are tight on space behind the radio.

Pros: One-stop shop to get wiring supplies. Fit well and looks professional.

Cons:

Great wiring harness. When I read the instructions, it warned the colors may not match, that whould have cost me another 5 minutes, but when I got ready to label everything, the colors did match with my JVC. Matched them all up by colors, made and soldered the conections at my desk, then everything plugged right up. GREAT item.

Pros: Perfect fit for my F150 and JVC

Cons: No problems or issues at all.

The only good thing is that the harness fits into the car harness, however whoever produces this product need to fix the way the wires hook up to radio harness. One should not have to splice into the car audio wires to install a radio. Poorly designed product because it doesn't fully work with a Hyundai vehicle or Kenwood stereo.

Really makes install a snap. Coupled with the connector kit, only took 1/2 hour to mate the unit harness to this connector. Makes for a simple "plug-in" install

Pros: Ease of use, instructions

Cons: None

To start, I hate messing with anything electrical. Especially auto wiring. After receiving this harness with my Pioneer head unit, I decided to pre assemble both ends of the before I tried the install. I was shocked at how easy installation was. In the past I had always tried to wire everything from inside the car. Doh* Anyway, the thing works. What more needs to be said?

Pros: Easy to attach to radio harness...

Cons: None..

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

average rating because the harness was well constructed, just not what was suggested by the configurator. I entered my car correctly but received the civilian harness. Product support didn't help, so I ended up getting the correct harness elsewhere.

Pros: well constructed

Cons: not for the Interceptors. this was made for the civilian Crown Vics.

I needed this for my install in a 2006 Hyundai Sonata. If you have a Premium System with factor subwoofer you will need to splice the pink/white wire from the car side harness to turn the sub on that powers all speakers. It wasn't as easy as I thought. Or just call tech service, I did they were great.

Mark F from Houston TX on 8/13/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

wiring harness had no hot wire on the F-150 side of the harness. Had to run a switched hot wire directly to the stereo itself. Used a piggy back fuse from the engine compartment through the passenger side wire harness grommet and behind the glove box to the radio. Crutchfield instruction did not mention this but when I called the tech department they said they had the info and "sorry for not sending it". I had the intergrated radio and had two wiring harness. It was obvious which one to use, but lost some of the capabilites on the F-150 display but Crutchfield told me this going into the project. I still was able to keep the temperture, but lost the clock.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

With this adapter any my new car stereo, I was able to do all the soldering and connections at the workbench. Then when I got to the vehicle I just plugged in the adapter and the antenna and I was done! As I was wiring it all up I kept checking and rechecking all the wiring because I thought it was just too easy and that I was missing something. I wasn't. Crutchfied just took all the guesswork out of it and made a super fast install.

Pros: Unbelievably easy. Do all the wiring at the workbench then unit just plugs right into the car like a factory stereo.

Cons: None

I wouldn't attempt to install without

coopebh from Kansas on 7/12/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

There is alot of wires that splice together. I would have not attempted the install if I wouldn't have had this wire harness adapter. Easy to splice colored wires together.

Pros: Made installation a breeze

Cons: Splice the harness in the comfort of your home...not in the truck. Why didn't I think of that before I finsihed? Maybe the instuctions should point that fact out.

Perfect: 2011 Ford F-450 Super Duty with basic radio

Stajdanley from Durham, NC on 7/1/2012

2011 Ford F-450
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was told by multiple sources that the harness I needed to connect my JVC KDX50BT radio was a crazy variation ranging from 100-160 dollars. The more expensive harness is ONLY if you have steering wheel controls and Microsoft Sync. If you have a basic AM/FM radio with four speakers, no steering wheel controls, no Sync, this very inexpensive harness should work for your 2011 Ford F-450 Super Duty. Took five minutes to splice the harness to the JVC harness and everything works perfectly.

Pros: Inexpensive, easy installation, seems solid enough, works.

Cons: None.

Used the harness to install a Kenwood DNX9990HD in my F150. I soldered the wires but could easily have used quick connections. The wire colors between the head unit and adapter even matched up making it an easy installation. A must if you are doing an installation...

Pros: Easy to use Colors matched closely to head unit wires Good instructions Makes installation easy

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

2008 Sonata. Worked perfectly. An important note for Sonata owners planning on using this harness - You must connect the power antenna lead from your new head unit to the green/black wire in your factory harness. This was the only extra splice needed. I'm only guessing, but I believe that the green/black on the factory harness is for antenna amplification. No connection means no am and lousy fm reception. The instructions with the harness showed clearly where the connection needed to be. Hope this helps anyone who wonders why they need to connect the power antenna lead, when they don't have a power antenna.

Pros: Clear instructions. Easy installation

Cons: No pins for steering wheel controls (which I don't have anyway)

90% perfect

Dallas from Augusta, GA on 6/18/2012

2006 Ford F-150
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Worked well enough... if I could do anything to change the harness, I would add wiring provisions for aftermarket steering wheel controls. All of the steering wheel control adapters require connection to factory wiring, and having the ability to connect via the same harness would make the installation easier and more professional / easier to remove if returning to stock.

Pros: Does everything it's designed to do.

Cons: Could have incorporated steering wheel control wiring into design.

I soldered all the connections. Crutchfields wiring diagram was clear and concise. Super easy, I did it in 5 minutes. I plugged it in and tried it before I bolted the head unit down. Worked great, sounded great. I taped it up real good so I'll probably never have to take it apart a decade from now.

Pros: Super easy, fits my 06 F-250

Cons: None
