About the Metra 70-5514 Receiver Wiring Harness

Metra 70-5514 Receiver Wiring Harness

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

Metra 70-5514 Receiver 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 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. We'll send a detailed instruction sheet with your order confirmation email. 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 (see Details for a list of connections). You will need a special adapter if you want your factory steering wheel audio controls to work with your new stereo.

Note: This includes a "jumper" bypass harness that will route your signal around your factory amplifier. You will need to access your factory amp in order to make the bypass harness connections.

Wiring kit was a breeze to use. Made the stereo easy to plug right into the factory harness and bypass the factory amp.

Pros: Follow the instructions, and it'll work exactly as it's supposed to.

Cons: None

Ended up having to cut the ground wire out and run it to the body of the car bc the plug was wrong and the amp bypass is a bit harder than the instructions say

Pros: Bypass ur amp,all the connections u need

Cons: Had to cut the ground out in order for it to work

Don't bother

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I ordered this so I could keep the original wires intact. I've had to take out the head unit 3 times to push the connectors together, so it would work properly. So, I've wasted my time with this connector. Now I've had to just run new wires directly from unit to speakers.

Pros: Easy to hook up.

Cons: Don't work. Connection keeps coming undone.

I've been a customer of Crutchfield going on 30 years. My son bought his first car, first we did was get a new stereo. The harness did exactly what it was supposed to do, and install time was super fast.

Pros: Exact fit, fast shipping

Cons: Wasn't free :-)

Free with purchase.

So easy it's stupid from Kentucky on 11/22/2014

1996 Ford Thunderbird

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I got this free with my Kenwood receiver because I won't buy a radio from Crutchfield that doesn't include this harness for free. Very simple & easy to install. Just connect the wires to the adaptor per instructions, then plug the adaptor into the factory harness. Fortunately, the previous owner had not hacked up the factory harness, so this was a pretty straight forward plug and play. The included amplifier bypass harness was an invaluable time saver. I can't say enough good things about Crutchfield.com

Pros: Easy Easy Easy

Cons: No cons.

Product Research

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 and sold separately.
