More than I Expected!

April 12, 2014

If youre having troubles with your install (ford explorer/mercury mountaineer) with premium sound and SEARCHED ALL OVER for correct wiring harness, this IS the one. I ididnt want to pay for another useless component but as soon as I got it (2 days sooner than I was told) I immediately went to complete my install and FINALLY got my after market headunit working....If youre having problems just get it, plenty of wire length and attaches right on.

Perfect Fit ! Metra 70-5601

December 15, 2014

I ordered this after trying several others that claimed to work with the JBL system in the Ford Explorer. They do work for some models but not the Premium JBL. (small plug issue) THIS Metra 70-5601 on the other hand works flawlessly. Takes some doing to channel the wiring from the rear to front but I did it in under 30 minutes with the hardest thing being the connections. Worked perfect with my Alpine ida-x305 system. Best Buy recommends the same harness. You lose the sub....but can be added easily. Best thing.. the price !

Driving a 1997 Lincoln Continental -- my audio guy pointed me in the direction of this harness, informing me it was the correct one to hookup an aftermarket stereo head unit to any premium JBL sound system with a factory pre-amp installed stock. Should work with other '94-'97 model Ford vehicles with the same JBL system.

SO WILL THIS ACTUALLY WORK IN MY 97 CONTI?
Stop y on Sep 3, 2016
Best Answer: It worked great in my 97 Explorer. I routed it to the truck's amp, unplugged the factory harness, and plug this into it.
