Harness Features

Vehicle Sound System
This refers to what kind of sound system the vehicle has. Premium audio systems are generally name brand systems (such as JBL, Bose, Rockford Fosgate, etc) that have been installed inside a vehicle when it leaves the factory. Often they more advanced systems, complex wiring, factory amplifiers, and other features that can make installing aftermarket component difficult.
Standard Sound
Main Harness Function
Different installations on different vehicles require different harnesses. This type is what the harness is considered. Each wiring harness we sell serves a purpose such as installing an aftermarket car stereo, integrating an aftermarket amplifier with your factory car stereo, connecting Bluetooth to your factory car stereo, and more.

Metra 70-1771 radio wiring harness adapter

December 22, 2011

Do not attempt to install a radio without a harness adapter. With this type of adapter you can do all of your wiring on the bench (or the couch) and then just plug it into the car's original harness. Safe, easy and fast. The 70-1771 works in Ford Crown Vics that are PIs, which do not use the 24 pin harness used by standard Vics. Sonic offers the best service, variety, shipping and price of these wiring harness adapters. The use of this harness will allow you to reinstall the original radio at a later date or if you need to reinstall if the new radio goes in for repairs. Even if you never need or want to put the old radio back in, this is the only way to keep your sanity when installing an aftermarket radio- and it's only $10 and free shipping!

The Metra 70-1771 was a perfect match for my vehicle. I soldered all the connections which took a little time but it was well worth it. Thanks to Sonic for your support, everything went as good as could be expected.

Perfect match without cutting any existing wiring.
Terry G on Sep 15, 2016
because it fit my year ranger. You guys should list this on ebay and make it obvious it fits the 98 and up ranger they're hard to find and people will buy them. Found this link off a forum specifically from the ranger forum
Casey G on Jun 17, 2015
To keep the existing wiring connection between my OEM harness and my Pioneer stereo I just finished installing. Don't want to unsolder & resolder 8 speaker wires, just build new harness.

What is the orange wire with black stripe for?
Kevin P on Oct 29, 2015
Best Answer: Hello Kevin,

It is for "Illumination Ground". If you headunit doesn't have a matching wire, do not worry yourself with it.

Hi,

I purchased this harness 70-1771 for my 2001 Ford Mustang. Can you tell me what the orange dashboard/illumination wire should be connected to? After changing the radio, my dash board light does not work. I am not sure if this is related to the orange wire. The radio instructions do not show how to connect this wire.
Jay D on Apr 20, 2015
Best Answer: Hello Jay,

None of the wires have any relationship with the dashboard. The Orange wire is intended to DIM the headunit when the headlights are on, but this is only available in select vehicles. We are authorized dealers of METRA in order to offer our customer the premium option of speaking to their Tech Support with any issues that may come up; we suggest using that option.
