Power Antenna Wiring


 Share

Recommended Posts

OK ...Obviously some folks change the stock head unit with something a little more "powerful"....which I managed ..... My problem is integrating the new head units single power antenna lead to run the 3 wire stock power antenna. Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

Thx Clyde

Be aware - this is just a guess. I have not messed with the wiring to the antenna yet, just replaced the mast. But as there seems to be a control box with a multitude of wires that are cnnected to it and the antenna, my guess would be that the three wires are +, - and signal. The + & - being the hot and cold of your 12VDC and the signal being the wire from the radio that tells it when to go up (or down).

What are the colors on the wire insulation?

Well, I got through the electrical diagrams (all 300p) and couldn't find anything about what those 3 wires were for. I can tell they are there, and there are 2 more wires that feed power to the antenna control box, but it just appears that those 3 are strictly for control. Correct me if I am wrong, but the antenna signal is the typical single pin cable....right? Without taking my DMM to those 3 wires to find out what they do, I don't have a clue.

Like you, I was hoping there would be more chatter on this board.

There's got to be someone that has done this.

I'll try to take a look this weekend and see if I can figure it out.

I'm wanting to put an aftermarket radio in soon and will need to figure it out anyway.

:wacko:
