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.
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 makes installing your new stereo easier, and allows you to put the factory radio back when you sell your vehicle or return it at the end of the lease. 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):
Quick and easy
Super helpful. Most importantly, this harness was the correct one for the car and the wiring guide was very clear. It made installation a breeze.
Pros: Simple and easy to install.
Great product made installation a breeze. perfect fit
Pros: Easy install
What can I say? It was a perfect fit, and it worked! Was even better that it was included with the stereo at no extra charge! Made the installation easy and professional. Wire labeling was a little confusing, but taking the time to study the included wiring diagram helped. The diagram could have been better written though, and if it was in color... that would have made it super easy. Also, the wires on these stereo harnesses are very small, so it would be helpful to let people know what size connectors you'll need to have to finish the installation. Fortunately I already had enough connectors in the right size.
Pros: - Perfect fit for my car's harness. - Easy installation. - Lets you easily remove and reconnect the stereo when needed. - Harness allows you to finish the wiring job to the stereo inside the comfort of your home workshop / kitchen table, etc., instead of being hunched over inside the vehicle.
Cons: - Wiring diagram not the best. Would be even better if it was in color (even if online). - Would be nice if it had better labeling for the wires. - Would be helpful to let you know upfront what size wire connectors you'll need.
Not the entire set of harnesses necessary for a Volvo 850 Platinum Edition or R Edition with the Premium 815 newer models use the 816 160 Watt sound system. It does not contain a DIN connector if you want to retain the car's original amplifier.
Pros: Great start.
Cons: Can't complete the installation without the DIN connector, had to go to another source for that, but was also given misinformation by Crutchfield that nothing existed to use the factory amplifier with the DIN connection when there is.
This wiring adapter made my life painless when installing a new radio in an old car. I didn't need all the connections, but it did have additional ones for steering wheel controls if available. It fit the old wiring system seamlessly and I used Crutchfield's posi-products wire connectors so no soldering was required. Crutchfield's wiring diagram helped as this was the first time I've ever done this kind of install. But since the wires are color coded to match, now I could do it without the diagram.
Pros: Easy to use. Fits perfectly to install new technology into an older vehicle.
This came free with the kenwood stereo I ordered. It made the install quite a bit easier and quicker. So far great sound so no complaints there.
Pros: -free (for me) - easy install
it fit my Volvo perfectly and all the radio functions/speakers work. Not much else can be said.
This was a terrifically easy harness to work with. It took me about 30 minute to connect and install.
Exact fit to install my new head unit into my car. Connected it to the head unit's harness and was plug n play. Just that easy.
Pros: Super simple plug n play
Cons: Nothing to report
Fantastic product, it makes installation so simple, quick and easy.
Pros: fast, easy, no cutting up the vehicle wiring.
Easy and works great. Helped make for an easy instalation. Crutchfield is great for making the whole process easy.
Pros: Smooth, easy setup.
All eight speakers (four sets of two) work fine in my 1994 Volvo 850 Turbo wagon. The plugs were properly molded to tightly fit the factory harness. One did not lock into place - a firm tug would unplug it - but it fit tightly enough that it should remain connected. (The same thing happened with both Metra plugs for my 1994 Miata, so I arranged a secure marriage using zip ties.)
Pros: Tight fit
Cons: One plug wouldn't lock into place
Pros: Easy to connect to the old harness
easy to use, of course you have to solder but I hope that's expected.
Is what it claims to be
Pros: fit my volvo like a glove
WHAT CAN I SAY? IT WORKS PERFECT !
Pros: BEATS GUESSING WHICH WIRES GO WHERE
Pros: it fit
Exactly what I needed to install a radio in my Volvo 850. Just a tip: if you have POWERED ANTENNA, you need to hook the blue antenna wire to the blue with white stripe wire. I believe the label is power cont. Can't remember exactly cause its been a couple weeks but its definitely the blue to the blue and white wire.
Compatible and plugs right in
Pros: Compatible and plugs into specification
Cons: Wiring is of low quality
Made my install a snap, no connectors supplied
Pros: Made my stereo install very easy.
Cons: no supplied connectors
Correctly fits Volvos that had the CR-915 radio (shown on front), including the 1995 940 and 1995 850, but not earlier 940s. Note that this harness will put the dash speakers in parallel with the front door speakers, which is correct for a standard 4-speaker radio (the 6-speaker CR-915 had separate dash speaker outputs). Antenna motor output is the Blue wire (pin 3), which must be connected for a wagon as it powers the signal amplifier for the FM antenna in the left rear quarter window. The Orange wire (pin 10) is from the dash light dimmer rheostat(+) and connects to the radio dimmer lighting. If the radio dimmer circuitry needs a day/night (on/off) input then rather than connecting to the Orange wire, you will need a direct splice to the Yellow-White wire (pin 5) in the vehicle harness which comes from the park lights.
Pros: Direct fit for CR-915 vehicle harness
Perfect fit for my Volvo 850. Easy breezy!
Pros: Perfect fit
Instructions were super easy. Got to teach my nine yearold some soldering. We were done in less than 30 minutes.
Pros: Works. Fits. No problems. Looks professional.
Can't get any easier. Match the color coded wires and their function per the instruction sheet.
Good overall quality, BUT this what the Crutchfield site said fit my '94 Volvo 940T with 6 speakers. It did not. Check your plugs first before ordering if you have one behind the receiver and one near the steering column (connected to a factory amplifier), and they are matching flat wide plugs, you need item 120701121. That harness has MUCH longer wire leads as well.
very east to use, just connect and go
Pros: easy to use
these made life easier all the way but i must say i would get the wire twists from crutchfield as well as they make wiring simple
So nice to have this feature included at no extra charge. It eliminated the guesswork and troubleshooting of the possibly faulty existing wires. My Volvo is always just a little different, but one call to the customer service answered my questions and ensured proper installation.
This harness was completely wrong for the OEM radio/amp setup in my 1994 940. The CR-814 and amp had a single 14-pin connector, not the dual connector setup this harness came with. Completely useless to me and ended up making up my own harness based on information online. My advice to anybody considering this is to pull the radio first and make sure this harness will fit. Particularly disappointing in that Crutchfield site did not offer any alternative harnesses for the car.
It works. The front tweeters are bridged off of the front LR which is cool i guess. I don't think the wires were pre-stripped though. Not a big deal, but this is a review. Its free so, I like it.
Unlike all of the other Volvo owners. I have a Volvo 850 turbo,and I got the right harness, but my rear door speakers do not work since I installed this. So for now I go without some speakers, but I will have to go get the problem fixed.
Crutchfield sent this harness with my head unit and just like all the other products from them it is perfect!
Perfect for my 2000 S70. Easy to install. Even better if heat shrink tubes can be included.
It's a color by number installation. Couldn't be easier. Use crimp caps for connections it goes quick.
The wire harness worked as promised!
The right harness for the right car. Be sure take a few minutes to look at your current setup before you order just to confirm you are getting the right thing. For some reason Volvo used two different style harnesses. I got the wrong one first time around. No problem though, Crutchfield fixed rushed the correct one out to me. Install was super fast and I wonder why anyone goes to a pro to get this easy stuff done.
The replacement harness was extremly easy to install. However, getting the power antenna to work was an issue. We finally got it to work but with a strange side effect. If you begin with the new stereo off, the car off and the antenna down, once you start the car, everything is normal. But, once the stereo is turned on and antenna goes up, it will not retract when the stereo is turned off as the factory unit did. Until the car is shut off, the antenna is stays up. If you want it to stay down when starting the car, you must be sure to turn the stereo off before shutting the car off. Mainly a nusiance at the car wash. Go figure.
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 & sold separately.
