Question about Car Audio & Video
I don't know what kind of antenna you have purchase, your basic wire should have black for ground conected to any metal part that have good conductive to the car, second red wire should be the power wire which will directly connect to the main power supply usually to a fuse box or you can branch off cigarette lighter wiring. next you should have either green or yellow wires your instruction manuel should tell you what your remote wire is which will control making your antenna goes up and down when the radio is turn on or off. the power antennas remote wire will have to be plug in straight to the radio remote line. Keep in mind some stock radio will not have a remote line hookup because it does not came with power antenna from beginning however this may cause a problem to get your power antennas to work. 99% of the new after market radios will come with antennas remote control line. in your case you will have to rig and make a switch connected to the another power source using your remote line from your power antennas to allow for your new antennas to work by switching on and off to raise and lower your power antennas manually and it will not work automatic for you. Im not sure your stock radio will come equip with power antennas line hook up in the back of the radio.

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.
