1990 Toyota Camry antenna control vacuum line

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.

Hi Sarah,

The problem will lie with one or combination of the radio, the antenna or antenna cable. Check the antenna. If it is the type that can be unscrewed from the body of the car, do so. Check and clean any mating surfaces. Dirt & oxidation are enemies of electrical connections. Check the antenna cable everywhere it is exposed. Look for cuts in the jacket which can allow water in and causes oxidation. Check the connection at the radio, too. Make sure it is free of dirt and oxidation too. Clean the connectors and reconnect. Be sure that the plug connections are fully seated in the jacks. If you find a damaged cable or connector, it should be replaced. many times, replacing the cable will be very difficult - you might want to try installing a new antenna and cable instead of trying to reuse the old antenna. These are often available for sale in the automotive sections of department stores, and in automobile specialty stores. Try connecting everything together to make sure it works before punching holes in the body of the car.

The issue may be the radio itself. Try connecting a different radio - either an identical factory radio that is known to be good - or an aftermarket radio to is also known to be good. All of these issues can be a logical point of failure - especially if you purchased the car used. There's no telling how the car's radio and antenna might have been used or abused before you took ownership of the car.

Good luck!

FM Reception with Jensen MSR3007

I have the exact same problem with the exact same stereo. I started by removing the in-line AM/FM/VHF Separator and connecting the antenna directly to the stereo. The static/popping/fade-out continued. Today I swapped to a new antenna, but it did not help. I swapped back to the original antenna and for a brief while, I had good reception. The I went to coil the excess antenna cable and the static/popping/fade-out resumed. I have narrowed it down to either the antenna connector coming out of the back of the stereo or an internal circuit. Either way, it does not look like a do-it-yourself fix.

XM receiver starts up and then shuts down

I had a similar problem with a portable XM radio. The antenna, connection and cableall looked fine, however, the centre conductor of the antenna lead was damaged where the lead went through the door jamb. Look for any type of crimp in the antenna cable and if so, either get someone to repair the lead, or get a replacement antenna.

Crutchfield sells an aftermarket kit that allows the steering wheel controls to work, but it's $74, and you head unit must be remote control capable. They also sell a wiring harness that works with Kenwood/Toyota as long as you have the original wiring harness that came with the Kenwoood. You'll need to do some snipping and krimping however.
