    Metra makes several good, off the shelf, decent quality harnesses and installation entry level kits for car audio and amps - IF you have to have one RIGHT NOW and need to run into a store and pick up something fast... Unfortunately that convenience will cost you about double what you would pay for the same product and quality if ordered online. So again: great if your in a pinch, but if you plan your install a few days in advance - save some bucks by ordering the parts you need online.

    Bought new truck in found out after buying nice Kenwood stereo that had to have special adapter so after another trip back to BestBuy to buy special said adapter I was able to install and works great it should be noted that these adapters are needed beforehand and I wouldn't have been able to have to make another trip. Overall product work great to hook in new Kenwood stereo

    Worked perfect for my application. The only thing that could have been better would have been a chart showing which harness work for which vehicles. I know there listed on the backs of the inserts but according to that, there was 3 different harness there that worked form the vehicle. But truly only one of them worked for my vehicle specifically.

    This harness was very easy to match up and worked great once we installed everything. I do recommend investing in a small package of quick splicers, because they make the job even faster then electrical tape. and they insure a proper and safe connection. The quick splicers are available at any auto shop and are worth every penny.

    This harness is a time and effort saver. Rather than splicing into the wires in your dash, attach this harness to your new unit first and simply plug it into the socket in your dash. The wiring diagram it comes with is accurate and easy to follow. Made my installation a breeze and I was done in no time.

    Although the packaging said it would work with my GM vehicle, the wiring harness adapter was the complete wrong type... took it and the factory wiring harness back to the store and compared it to the others and despite labeling, none were the right adapter.

    Purchased this to help me figure out how to install an after market radio in my 2002 Tahoe. This made the install so easy. Basically match up the wires, connect to after market wire harness, and plug into factory harness. DONE!

    This harness was the perfect match for my 1994 GMC pickup when time came to change the stereo. Color coating made figuring out every connection a breeze. Even a novice should be capable of working with this piece.

    This made the installation of an after market radio very simple in an older model GM vehicle. All color codes matched with the radio. Connector on the harness matched right up with the OEM vehicle harness....no wire cutting or harness hacking needed.

    This adapter was a cinch to hook up. All car stereo wires must be universal in color coding. All I had to do was match the adapter to the harness for the new stereo wire by wire (purple to purple, red to red etc) And everything worked great!

    This product is necessary for an aftermarket radio and simplifies installation of the radio for ease of connection to the exiting wiring.

    This would have worked out fine for another vehicle. Did not work with '96 Buick Regal. Ended up going to Best Buy again and getting correct one. Talk to sales rep if you are unsure.

    This adapter worked fine in my 1999 Chevy pickup. The wire colors matched mine, and this made installing my stereo much simpler and quicker.

    Makes hooking up to existing car harness easy, I wouldn't install a car radio with out it, you can unplug it if you ever need to and plug the factory radio back in.

    This product worked perfectly for me. It's color coordinated, so you can't really mess it up, unless you're color blind I suppose. Great product. Thank you.
