Question about Toyota 4Runner
I have a 1999 Toyota 4 runner. I have changed the antennae mast with a new one but it still does not go up. The motor brings the antennae down but does not bring it back up. I suspect that the gears inside the motor are bad, as the motor was running. I can't figure out how to get the motor out. There are two wires that connect to the antennae a wiring harness that snaps off and another black wire that runs from the antennae motor through the wheel well / firewall into the car.
I got to the motor via the wheel well and disconnected the electrical harness to the antennae but I can't figure out how to get the other black cable out. This cable must run to the radio from the antennae motor. Do I need to remove the dashboard to get to the connection?

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
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

SOURCE: Radio antenna
You should be able to take the plastic piece going down the inside panel from roof to dash. Usually somwhere in there or under the dash you will find a slip connection. But some go all the way to the radio.

Reverse the wires, one is hot going up and the other hot going down, the easiest way to deal with this is to just reverse them.
