iDatalink HRN-AR-FO2 Harness

2017 Ford Edge

Ford edge owners beware. This harness will do its job until you want a second amp. Tap into solid blue wire for 12v amp turn on, wire runs from harness connecting into amp and aR device.

Quality Item for Great Price

Crutchfield customer from Katy, TX on 6/5/2019

2015 Ford F-250 Super Duty

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

Very good quality harness for installing the Rockford Fosgate DSR1 into my 2015 Ford F250 with the Sony system. The wiring and harnesses are all top notch quality and requires absolutely no splicing of the factory harness or wiring. Being that this is a bit of a universal harness for all Ford vehicles equipped with the Sony system, there were a few wires that were not needed. For example, the harness that connects to the stock speaker wires had two extra leads that my truck didn't need (probably for the rear center channel, which my truck doesn't have). It was pretty easy to unpin those from the harness so the install would look cleaner without all the extra unused wires. The same for the harness that had amp sub wires. I was able to unpin those without any special tools.

Pros: Completely splice free installation with stock wiring, plenty of wire length, quality components.

Cons: None whatsoever.

This harness is awesome!

This wiring harness saves so much time. Everything is labeled and it fits in the OEM plugs. Also, pre-stripped. This is a must have.

Pros: Fits OEM plugs. Pre-stripped. Well labeled wires.

Cons: Would be nice if the wires were a bit longer to accommodate some more wiggle room. they sell extensions for that, but more $$$.

OEM quality

Jeffrey from Roswell, GA on 4/22/2018

2013 Ford Focus

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

Plugs felt like OEM and snapped together positively. Wires used to convert are pre-labeled but are not marked + or - (marked as a pair, rf speaker, LR speaker, sub, etc). Wires seemed a bit small put of the package but are actually the same size as the wires in the car. Wires are pre stripped too, which was a nice touch. Pull the insulation off, stick it in your amp, tighten down. Done

Pros: Plugs fit well Plenty of pre-stripped wire Labeled clearly

Cons:
