You say your power is good. Have you check the power from inside at the power side.If so check and make sure your voltage regulator legs,three of them, are all good and soildered.Is it blowing fuses?

On 2000 monte carlo is the stereo antenna powered?


when you turn on the radio or the key with the radio on if the antenna goes up its a power antenna,if this is not what you mean then the antenna is not powered as we think of power.it collects radio air waves and sends then to the radio and there is a ground on the antenna were the antenna plugs into the back of the radio.you could have a poor connection were the antenna plugs into the radio.

I pulled my ipod to car lighter hookup out of the car lighter today and the entire thing popped out. i put it back but now my radio won't turn on... at all. my antenna won't even go up. i don't know what i...


in some vehicles the 12 volt power plug in is on the same fuse as the radio or console, as for the antenna not going up that makes sense, the power for the power antenna is most likely supplied by the radio, no power to the radio no power to the antenna. good luck and I hope this helps.

Is it my CB antenna or something else


First off, Midland makes a fine radio. Make sure your squelch is turned all the way down to receive distant signals (down meaning counter clockwise). The through the glass antennas are not the best thing in the world. I personally use a 102" whip and a 6" spring on a modified mirror mount. It is installed on the tailgate side of the tool box. The TX and RX is amazing. Wilson and K40 make great antennas also.

Power antenna wont go down


The flex drive cord that raises the antenna mast and lowers it is most likely broken, you can replace just the mast and drive cord.

Antenna Power supply


First order of business is to check and see if the antenna is operating properly. If the wire in your harness is intended to power the antenna, connect 12 volts to this lead, and the antenna should go up (this needs to be done with the key in the ON or ACCY position). If the antenna does not go up, check the fusebox for a blown fuse. If the antenna does indeed go up, then you can scratch that off the list of possible problems and move on to the next step.

The Clarion should have a power input wire to keep the clock alive, and a power wire (normally of heavier guage) to actually power the radio. Make sure the radio operates when the key is in the ON or ACCY position. If the radio is operating, so far so good.

I'm kind of confused when you say there are two wires on the clarion... "power antenna turn-on" and "auto antenna". Are these both on the clarion? There should be a wire that constantly feeds the antenna with power (I would cal this one auto antenna). It should always be powered to 12 volts. The antenna should operate when the "antenna turn on" lead becomes 12 volts. Normally this ONLY happens when the clarion RADIO is on (ie: if you're listening to a CD, the antenna probably won't get activated).

After checking all this, if you're still having problems and if you haven't already done so, grab a DC volt meter and verify that the clarion power antenna turn on lead goes to 12 volts when you turn on the radio. If it does not, then there is an internal problem within the radio. If this lead IS going to 12 volts when it is supposed to and the antenna still isn't working, then my guess is that the antenna is malfunctioning.

Let me know what you find out... I'll keep looking at stuff from this end. Good luck.
