First job:
This female harness is the only way to transfer the above vehicles OEM radio & din slider frame to a different vehicle as this radio style has no wires attached requiring a direct plug in.
It also serves as a replacement for an OEM female harness that has been cut off.
Reviews on the corresponding counter part male 70-1784 show many other vehicle MFR
radios this harness fits as well.

The description for female 71-1784 is correct:
Plugs into original equipment radio
Harness is designed to plug in the factory radio

Second job:
The corresponding counter part male 70-1784 is the correct harness to replace an OEM radio to an aftermarket without cutting the factory plug off.
Additionally the above vehicles factory radio wires were all the same brown colors, so snapping this on added the correct wire colors to match any new radio harness.

male 70-1784 would have been the correct harness for the below reviewer David

After searching forums high and low for adapters to connect the existing wiring in my car to something that would connect to the optional headunit that came with the 2000-2005 Ford Focus, I was relieved to find some so easy to get connections sorted and have nice music piping through to my speakers.

The wires are coded to be color coordinated with the existing wiring, and if you're purchasing this for your FoFo, don't switch the wires as some instructive forums suggest. Metra seems to have updated the color coordination so that the wires exactly match your existing wiring.

I would definitely recommend this for anyone who needs it - it's a no brainer.

Needed this to convert a BOSS media radio connection. The plug fit, and I was off and running. Pay attention to the description and not the colors for the power feeds.

If your working on any Saab similar to a 2005 9-5 then this is the harness to get! The 70-1784 is the Metra part number that corresponds to the the female plug that this goes with.

I used this to create a custom harness between my vehicle and the interface a Parrot Asteroid Smart. Allowed me to not have to splice any wires together. Fantastic!
