    Wrong harness for my vehicle

    Researched the harness needed for my 2013 Ford F150 Truck. According to the compatibility information listed with this product, I purchased it according to this information. At the time of the installation of my audio player, purchased for my vehicle, I was informed by the Best Buy Installer, that the harness I supplied was incorrect.. He looked up the information on the store computer, and showed me the description of the harness needed to start the installation. He asked me, if I would be willing to go to a local mobile audio dealer/installer, that he suggested. He also indicated, the dealer, most assuringly would have the proper harness in stock. I agreed and went to that business. Was able to purchase the correct harness for my vehicle, at quite an expense, Do to this issue, the installation time set, was extended buy two hours. But once I had the correct part, he was able to complete the installation to my satisfaction, even though it took most of the day. I am not complaining about the installation, but unhappy with the improper info received on the Best Buy website, but other websites as well. To sum it up, I purchased a harness from Best Buy, that was not used. Also purchased two harnesses from the local mobile audio dealer, not knowing which one would work, lucky one did. I left the the two items, that were not used, with the Best Buy installer, as I had no use of them. What ever inconvenience and cost, I am happy with the outcome.

    Novice Installer

    I had to do a lot of reading and youtube vids to make sure I was doing this correctly. The install manual and harness packaging color guide aren't enough if you're a novice installer like me--like this was my first attempt ever. However, with extra research, I got it in and it works beautifully--2004 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer and a Pioneer AVH-1300NEX. The install was actually fairly quick. Most of my time was in the research beforehand. I also made all my connections in the house with good light and plenty of room to work. My one mistake was not hooking up the 'blue wires' to control the amp. I had trouble finding out if my Expedition had an amp or not. It does. Use the blue wires. I was going to do 4 stars because the wiring info was weak but that really was due more to my inexperience rather than the info provided.

    Poor Recommendation

    The product itself may or may not be fine, I have no idea because it doesn't fit my vehicle. I purchased a car stereo and the site recommended the additional items needed for installation. I specifically input my vehicle make and model and wrongly assumed the recommendation would match my vehicle. While the antenna was the correct one for my Jeep, The wiring harness and mounting brackets that arrived with my new car stereo were for a Ford. Shame on my for not looking more closely. So my real issue is with the site, not the product.

    Wasn’t correct

    My car: 2006 ford freestyle Limited. I bought this under the assumption that it would fit my car, Best Buy confirmed it would wor for my stereo conversion... needless to say it doesn’t have the adapter fir the stock dvd player. And the main harness wires aren’t correct. The steering wheel controls are not working, stock amp works intermittently, and the dimmer wire connects to a spot where no wire connects...

    Stock Reverse Camera Sometimes Works Not Apps

    The harness was required due to the aftermarket radio I had GeekSquad install. Unfortunately the stock reverse camera only works intermittently. I was told this may happen. The apps that came with the radio unfortunately are not available or work with this adapter. At least the radio and blutooth work.

    Bought a new stereo system for sons car and salesman ordered this for us. There are two different harnesses. Husband worked on it forever and he finally realized salesperson ordered the different one that we needed. He thinks its a harness for a amplifier. I'm sure it would work just fine but system would not shut off when the ignition was turned off. Wires did not match up. Just an extra step but make sure you choose the right one

    So, My wife's suburban was totaled and the radio was only about three months old. I wanted to install the radio in my truck sence it was better than mine but, I couldn't figure out the wires so, I drove up the Best Buy and they said I needed this wiring harness that they Had in stack. Bought the harness and one hour after starting I was good to go.

    Not absolutely necessary, but why not use it?

    So you don't absolutely HAVE to use these wiring harnesses, but I just can't think of a good reason not to. They really speed up installation time versus trying to wire everything in in the dash. Just make sure to get the correct harness (most likely you'll need to get a store associate to get it out of the back for you - it's probably not on the shelves in the showroom).

    Still need inverter

    Bought this item. Was the correct thing, but realized I needed an inverter for the stock amp system. The stock radio turns the amp on at 5v. When you put an aftermarket radio in it will turn the amp on at 12v. So you need to connect an inverter to bring it down to 5v. Otherwise it will pop when you turn the key on.

    I wasn’t sure if I was going to purchase from Best Buy. I wanted to get a reasonable price for it. I knew about it and gow much it should be. But Best Buy price was great! And if they have one that open it’s even cheaper. And if u don’t need it the sales person was honest in telling u. Good job Best Buy

    This item is just what was needed when I needed the right thing for my vehicles new stereo system. It could not have worked out better. My car sound system is extremely top notch and my friends and family love the sound. I believe this is the best sounding car stereo I have ever had! Will definitely tell everyone about it.

    Wireing harness can work for you

    On newer vehicles there is a data cable that also hooks into the radio. This is what provides the radio with the 12volts to turn on, connects to synk, steering controls, extra. This harness does not connect to the data cable so you will lose this function. Also you will have to find the 12 volts needed to get the radio to turn on.

    Connector was a perfect match to my JVC Radio and my Ford truck harness. Only problem is my Ford came with SIRIUS radio, that device was right behind factory radio. There was no cable connector to go from Ford SIRIUS connector to standard SIRIUS connector. This should have been done a long time ago.

    Metra makes totally accurate wiring for just about any application. Too bad BB’s database was not correct and I got sold the wrong harness lol. I ended up returning this harness and had to buy the right one online

    I bought this with the hopes of connecting a new Pioneer head unit to a Ford Explorer. Neither end was correct for the job at hand. Admittedly, I probably did not do enough research. In the end, I did not even need/use a wiring harness adapter.

    My brother has an 05 Mustang GT with the Shaker 500 system in it and we had a difficult time searching for it anywhere else because all the other adaptors were for the regular stereo system in the mustang's. If you have the Shaker 500 system, this is the one for you.

    For years I have been without my subwoofer. I changed my radio years ago, and obviously wasn't quite clear on how to hook it up. Turns out I hadn't received all of the wires!! When I received your wires..., then I went to YouTube to learn how to hook up the "subwoofer" wires. Thank you!!!

    Perfect For My 2004 Mustang

    Bought this to connect a JVC KD-R860BT to my 2004 Mustang GT that originally had the Mach 460 radio. Plugged right into the factory harness and worked like a charm. It allowed me to use the factory amps and speakers and even utilize the dash lighting dimmer circuit which was an unexpected bonus!

    Installed this wire harness to my 2010 Ford F-250 Superduty to replace a double din factory radio. This harness fit perfectly, easy to make connections with the labeled wires. Plugs right in to radio factory wire harness. I would recommend this wire harness

    The plug fits like a glove and the wire color coding matches up with aftermarket stereos. The wires come pre-stripped which saves lots of time as well. The instructions are clear and easy to read and follow.
