Metra 70-1761 receiver wiring harness

This vehicle-specific wiring harness adapter makes connections between your new car stereo and your car's electrical system. It works with select 1987-up Toyota, Lexus, Scion, Subaru, and Geo vehicles.

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.

Connections:

  • 12V constant power
  • 12V switched power
  • chassis ground
  • power antenna turn-on
  • dimmer
  • left front speaker +/-
  • right front speaker +/-
  • left rear speaker +/-
  • right rear speaker +/-

Features

Metra Wiring Harness: Metra 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 Metra 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 Metra 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 Metra 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.

Q
Will this allow me to retain the factory Sub in my 2009 FJ Cruiser?
[ Tommy  Mar 28, 2019 ]
2 answers
A
My guess is that it would not play your new receiver through that sub without adding a separate amp - your factory srereo probably has a direct sub-out lead. These harnesses provide basic speaker , antenna, power, memory and ground connections, as that is what replacement radios need. Your new radio (not specified) probably has some low level outs that could feed a separate little amp for the sub - check directly with C'field tech guys - they probably can tell you which wires in the car harness will get it hooked to your sub - good luck, it can be doe...
[ Bruce K.  Apr 04, 2019 ]
A
I believe it did have connection for sub but not positive as I added an external sub that I powered separately and used sub output from stereo

Q
Will this adapter work on 2003 Toyota Tacoma and a Pioneer AVH-X2800BS with Bluetooth?
[ jbaum  Nov 19, 2018 ]
2 answers
A
It is the harness we recommend for connection to the factory wiring in the 2003 Tacoma, yes. You can connect the leads of the Metra harness to the leads of the Pioneer stereo's harness (packaged with the stereo) for power (both constant & switched), ground, dimmer, power antenna, and all of the positive and negative speaker connections. A multi-media receiver (like the AVH-X2800BS) will have additional leads in it's harness you'll have to hardwire to the factory wires in your truck (parking brake sensor, reverse trigger).

This is the recommended stereo wiring harness for connecting an aftermarket stereo to the stock wiring in a 2008 Toyota Tacoma without the premium JBL sound system. The stock tweeters are wired in parallel with the door woofers and will continue to play if left connected when the new stereo is installed, yes. I hope that helps!
