Yes they sell kits for this at parts store like advanced auto parts its a little bit of work but if thats what you want then you probably wont mind. look for universal power antenna.

    well there should already be an antenna wire running up to your car stereo so follow that then redirect it from there to were you want it to go

Rebuilt my 1990 power antenna and checked up and down with 12 volt battery (all fine). Reinstall but not working. Could it be the relay?


possibly .I suggest that you check the completed circuit for a ground wire
some have their own ground and some ground out through the copper braid of the antenna wire, through the set to ground which may require and extra wire from the set
I had such a problem when installing a replacement unit where the wiring was slightly different and I found that the grounding was the problem

I installed a new radio, everything works except the power antenna??


does the power antenna sense the power lead of the radio . Did you somehow disconnect a sensor wire from the radio power wire when installing the new radio.
This might be the cause of the power antenna not going up when radio switched on ?

Will 1992 miata side mirrors fit exactly on a 1996 miata


The above is a good explanation of accessing the mirror but to answer your question directly, yes, they will fit. All the 90-97 mirrors are interchangeable with the exception of installing later power mirrors onto a 90-91 Miata where it wasn't a factory option. They will mount up fine but do require enlarging the center hole where the wires need to run.

I'm installing an after market radio on my 82 vette, but i don't know which is the power lead for the power antenna. anyone know?


Usually the blue wire from the stereo is for the remote amp and/or power antenna. If you haven't cut off the stock radio plug, I would check into getting a stereo harness adapter for the stereo. Most auto stereo shops can get them.

Radio antena will no longer go up and down...sits 25% extended, what is the cause and what do I do


This is a common problem with power antennas. You can either replace the unit (expensive and time consuming job) or replace it with a standard antenna (not expensive and can be a DIY job).
