Overview Details Accessories


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.

Receiver Wire Harness January-02-14
Reviewer: John C from Suwanee, GA  
The wiring harness for power was straight forward and instructions were clear. The speaker wire harness directions were not as clear when working with my older (90) Mustangs premium sound system, which required me to use a third harness and connect diretly to the amplifier in the car. Crutchfield was very helpful in directing me to the proper requirement, although getting to the wiring harness on the amplifier was somewhat difficult.

Reviewer: John C. from Minneapolis  
Item installation was poorly described, had to rewire it from scratch because my car had a factory amp in addition to the radio.  I'd gladly pay a few bucks more and have a product that contains a set of alternative wiring harnesses that are each pre-wired at both ends so I don't have to solder them.  Just pick the right harness and plug and play at both ends.  As is, this seems like antiquated technology.

Great product to do the job right with.  Make swapping out a radio a snap.  No more cutting and splicing of the factory harness.
