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 ?

Subaru forester (2006) radio stopped working - only light static. CD player works fine.


Best guess is the antenna has a broken wire/lead, or somehow got unplugged from the radio. You will have to remove the radio to check antenna wire with Volt/ohm meter.

  2. Disconnect the lead-in cable from the antenna and ground strap.
  3. Disconnect the antenna motor wires at the connectors and disconnect the control box connectors.

  5. Remove the two nuts retaining the antenna bracket assembly to the quarter panel.
  6. Remove the antenna assembly from the vehicle.

Some antennas require a special socket to remove the locknut

Once its loose the nut can be removed by hand. Sometimes it can be twisted off with a needle nose pliers, but that usually ruins the tool

The antenna mounts in the luggage compartment against the support member

The motor and housing sit on a stand that is bolted to the support member

Its easier to remove the antennae from the support to gain access to the ground strap screws

To install:
NOTE Correct sequencing for installation is important to prevent water leakage or dimpling of the quarter panel

  1. Connect the antenna cable, power connector and control box connector.
  2. Insert the antenna mast through the quarter panel hole and position bracket on mounting studs in the luggage compartment.
  3. Install the stanchion assembly.
  4. Loosely install the two bracket retaining nuts.

Replace antenna


Remove old Antenna
  1. Activate the antenna switch to the up position.
  2. Using the wrench or needle-nose pliers, loosen and remove the original retaining nut on the base of the antenna mast.
  3. Gain access to the underside of the area of the trunk where the antenna is located.
  4. Remove the bracket or brace that is below the hole and holding the antenna in place.
  5. Remove the mast.
  6. Find the motor that controls the antenna mast. Generally, power antennas will have a constant 12-volt lead and a ground lead. The ground lead will be grounded to the panel next to the motor.
  7. Remove the ground lead from the panel.
  8. Pull out the antenna coaxial cable.
  9. Unplug the coaxial from the extension coaxial cable.
  10. Remove the original antenna coaxial cable. Note the route the cable follows.

Install new Antenna
  1. Inspect the fender area where the antenna mast will be mounted for rust.
  2. Clean the area before installing the new antenna.
  3. Plug the new antenna coaxial cable to the extension coaxial cable.
  4. Plug the new antenna's coaxial cable into the radio's chassis antenna jack if there is no extension coaxial cable. Tie or tape the string you put on the extension cable to the new antenna coaxial cable. This assures that the 2 cables stay together as you route them to the antenna mount in the fender.
  5. Connect the power lead of the antenna to the power antenna lead on the radio.
  6. Connect the 12-volt constant lead to the antenna to a 12-volt source or to the ignition switch.
  7. Direct the new antenna cable via the same route followed by the original antenna cable on up to the hole in the fender in which the mast will be mounted.
  8. Ground the ground lead from the motor to a clean metal surface on the metal panel near the mount.
  9. Insert the mast into the hole. Face the serrated side of the plastic cable on the bottom of the mast toward the motor side. The plastic cable can be inserted freely to about 12 inches and will stop.
  10. Turn on antenna switch to down position until the plastic cable goes down and catches into the gear mechanism of the drum housing. If the plastic cable does not gear into the mechanism, twist the cable slightly until the cable contacts into the gear mechanism while the motor is in operation.
  11. Stop the motor after the cable goes into the housing 12 to 25 inches.
  12. Secure the bracket or strap to the bottom of the antenna mast and to the metal fender.
  13. Replace the retainer nut to the base of the antenna mast and secure tightly.
  14. Replace the panel that covers the antenna mount area.

I recently acquired a 1993 Buick Park Avenue. The motor that makes the antenna go up and down runs continually but the antenna does not move. It runs my battery down and I have to get jumped off, I have...


Look in the trun k on the ant side and pull back the the felt and you will see where it connects and disconnects. You have a broken antenna lead. At the bottom of all electronic antennas is a plastic lead that fits in the motor to wind the antenna up or down.The motor is still good you only need to replace the stem. Good luck.

AFTERMARKET REPLACEMENT FOR AUTO ANTENNA


sounds simple
placement of antenna is important this will determine which wires to use
most antenas are in the trunk of vehicle with a wire clip to connect or disconnect
tools needed
test light
find your wire clip running from old antena this will be where test light will be used one side of clip is full powered the other is key powered find good ground tip the test light on first prong light stays on this is full power other will be key powered

now your looking for the simple color wires ok on the back of your sterio there is an atenna wire which is blue this will power on only when sterio is on the other wire
you use test light to find without key in take your test light and find a permannent powered full on wire hot supply then connect antenna into these 2 things

at top the reason i mentioned this is cause the old power antena you can find the right leads in the trunk area where new antenna going to be placed with the test light you might need a second person to help you testing wires you in the back and them in the front turning the key on when you need it it makes things simpler with 2 people
i hope this helped you in your quest for knowledge
