Kevinrose: are you installing a factory antenna or an aftermarket?
The factory antenna will get a constant power supply which is a pink or purple wire. This wire is hot whether the key is on or off.
The way the antenna is made to go up, is through a second power source which is black/red wire. When you turn the radio on, this wire goes hot when the ignition is switched in the accessory or on positions. When you turn the radio off or turn the ignition switch completely off, the antenna will completely retract. The circuit for the antenna is served with a 10 amp fuse which is located on the driver's side to the left of the steering column, The fuses should be labeled on the door you remove to access the panel.
CAUTION!!!! most aftermarket antennas DO NOT have the kind of connector that will all you to plug or easily connect the factory antenna cable to it. You wil have to make an adaptor.
So before taking things out of the packaging check this out or you will find your self with an antenna to sell.

sandman: Depending on the situation you are describing is the solution This is contingent on your having removed the old antenna and it's remains. Ideally you and one other person to assist would be best for this job. Have the radio turned on and feed the antenna mast cable in with the teeth facing the rear of the car. Push the cable down until it stops. At that point be prepared to feed the cable in as the motor draws it downward and be prepared to feed the mast it self into the antenna housing where it will continue to rectract until it stops nearly flush with the fender . At the time it stops, you will hear it going bump, bump, bump a number of times. This is normal. Once retracted, you can reinstall the retaining nut or collar which prevents the antenna from being pushed out of the housing. The collar has two small holes in the top which are for a special tool. A pair of snap ring pliers will work in their place.
If you have the remains of the antenna cable inside of the antenna assembly, unless you are somewhat skilled, it may be better to remove the antenna assembly and bring it to a shop for the to replace the mast.
If I can be of further assistance....let me know.

How can i replace 1991 maxima radio system?


The original radio is a BOSE system and it has a buit in amp. So if you replaced the deck you need to replace the speakers all so. Don't cut the wires to hook-up the deck buy an addapter KIT. It's not just the stereo that runs though that harness the factory alarm does all so and that will cause you problems. Anyway back to the stereo you need to add an amplifier and problem sovled.
