If you check the wiring at the back of the unit, there will be a blue wire coming out of the stereo that is probably not connected to anything, and often will have a plastic insulator stuck on the end. It may even have a label on it saying "antenna" or similar. This lead will put out a signal for a motorised antenna. To connect it, you would need to connect the blue lead to a relay which would be able to switch on power from the battery to the antenna motor - many motorised antennas will have that relay built into the base - check the wiring instructions that come with whatever antenna you get. You can also just wire a motorised antenna to a separate switch, only needing to connect the signal coax cable to the stereo - just be careful that the antenna motor has a switch that shuts it off when it is fully in, or fully out - else you could burn out the motor. Hope this helps, please ask again if you need mre info :)

Eton e5 sw shot


The SW FET preamp transistor, Q1, on the underside of the circuit board blows if a static electric discharge hits the whip antenna. In my case, a cat rubbing against me & the radio on a very dry winter day did it in. The back & circuit board has to be removed to get at it. The micro transistor & the solder connection are very tiny, so hard to replace. The antenna jack should still work, because the preamp is only for the whip antenna's SW reception. An easier solution would be to just run a wire from the antenna jack to the whip antenna, but you would no longer have the whip's preamp benefits, or just use a longwire antenna connected to the jack for SW. Also beware plugging into the jack disables the AM ferrite antenna inside, so you might not want anything plugged into it for AM reception because the internal ferrite seems to perform better than any external antenna.

There should be three wires going to the motor. Power, ground, and a "turn on" wire. turn the radio on to get the antenna up. pull back the panel where the antenna is at. disconnect the wires from the motor. it should be a single plug. your done. if there is a concern about the wires touching metal, tape the plug with electrical tape. put the panel back.

If it is a three wire electric antenna. The Ground wire is usually black. To find out which is the trigger wire simply connect the black wire to ground and then power one of the other wires, if you here the clicking of the relay you know this one is the trigger wire and the other wire is the power wire.

1999 Mazda 626 antenna won't go down, hums.


Spray the antenna with a spray lubricant (WD40) or similar. and let it sit for an hour.

Then start the car and see what happens.

The antenna is probably full of filth or corrosion..

If that doesn't work take the side cover off the trunk on the side where the antenna is and you will find a plug in electrical connector near the motor that winds the antenna up and down, pull that plug out and the antenna will stop trying to wind itself down..
