Can anyone direct me to the vacuum line that controls the electric Antenna on this model. The old antenna bit the dust and in the process of replacing it with a non electric model, I lost the vacuum line when I removed the old antenna. The line is open and creates a vacuum leak that is causing the engine to run rough. I have tried to reach the line in the rear wheel well to no avail. If I could find which of the myriad vacuum lines on the engine goes to the Antenna, I could plug the line and eliminate the problem. Any assistance greatly appreciated.

You can replace the whole assembly. It could be catered from junk yard, new Toyota parts store or car radio shops. After market antennas are also available which could be put to work after a little effort.
from the inside of the car where antenna is mounted it bolts out relatively easily ,an aftermarket replacement Universal antenae is available ,your local car sound shop can help advise you ,pulling it up is difficuilt as there is gears and electric motor involved ,car sound shop can fit an antennae electronic box on inside of your windscreen that works far more efficientlt than the standard unit
first of all, is your radio factory or aftermarket? If its factory the you probably have a bad ground or a short in the radio power to antenna. If its after market, then the remote antenna wire is hooked up wrong. Check to make sure the antenna wire is hooked up to the antenna. Good luck

Yes there is a fuse for the antenna. Check the fuse and if it is good you will have to get to the electrical plug for the antenna, and check for current and ground. If all check out the antenna went bad.
This is normally due to a broken antenna mast inside the motor, the mast /cable assembly should be replaced, the antenna motor has to be removed from the car and disassembled to remove the broken piece of the old cable, once that is accomplished the antenna motor is reinstalled and the new cable assembly is fed into the motor by turning the radio on until the motor stops and then turning the radio off while feeding the new mast in.
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.
