No, the fuse also operates the radio, this is common where the motor runs all the time, look under the dash on the pass/side theres a connector there you can unplug it this is for the antenta alone. if i remember correctly the connector is black and wires are green and black.

What does fuse called radio-b do?


If your unit has digital display as most do now, RADIO-B will supply constant power to power the units memory so it can remember the preset channels, starting volume etc. The power antenna is usually controlled by a separate wire from the unit (normally blue) this wire supplies a low voltage signal to the antenna, The antenna will also have its own power supply and earth at the base of the antenna, the problem could be there. depending on the antenna, some have a controlling relay that is separate, again another possible source. there will also be a fuse in the main fuse box. These will all need to be checked, along with connecting a power source to the antenna to ensure the antenna does actually work.

Antenna motor keeps running. How do I disconnect?


2 ways you can do it> 1 find the fuse and pull it out but only if it is for the antenna or you can disconnect the antenna wire from the back of your radio, it is normaly a blue wire run with the power harness. Red is 12V. Black is Ground 0V. Yellow is Remote, it works with an AMP if you have one installed. Blue is normaly the power antenna. hope this helps> test it first by pulling the fuse to the radio and if the antenna does not operate then the power is from the radio

I just want to disconnect the power to my power antenna on my 1995 toyota 4 runner. the antenna is broke, but i dont want to replace it, i just want to stop the motor from running everytime i turn the...


You may want to check and see if there is a single fuse for the antenna alone. If so then just remove the fuse, How ever, Once you remove that fuse check all your switches, radio wipers, lights, tail lights, blinkers and so on to make sure you didnot take out a fuse that operates more then one feature. If the fuse does work more then one item then you will need to locate the antenna motor and there should be only one wire going to it. Un-plug that wire. It will be a hot wire sobe sure to tape the end up to make sure it doesnot bump metal some place. Just a trick I learned was to take some gasket sealer and dip the end of the wire into the sealant. This will dry and become a rubbery protection cover. But black electrical tape works too for the quick fix. Then tie the wire back away from any possible metal it could flop against or get kicked against and short out your system. Hope this helps, Raz

PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE!!!!

Removal & Installation
  1. Lower the antenna and remove the luggage compartment trim panel.
  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.
  4. Remove the top mounting nut and stanchion assembly.
  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.
  5. Install the top-mounting nut.
  6. Tighten the bracket retaining nuts.
  7. Install the ground strap.

Power antenna. 1986 olds delta 88


Obviously if fuse panel has a power antennae fuse, simply pull it, otherwise you may have to get to connector at motor by removing part or all of sheild in wheel well to access it in some cases. Only other option would be to remove radio from dash & disconnect antennae power wire from radio. Don't forget you want it up before disconnecting if you can.

Power antenna


Actually, there are 5 power feeds going into the power antenna control relay. If I am to assume that you just no longer want it to run, just remove the radio and disconnect the BLACK with a WHITE trace wire at the plug going into the back of the radio unit.
