I put a Pioneer CD player in my SS, and it does not operate the power antenna. I have a FSM, and looking at the wire diagram for the power antenna looks like I can just wire a toggle switch in between circuit 43 Y, and 145 GRN behind the radio to control the power to the antenna relay. Question is, will the antenna motor stop running when it is fully up or down? Would a momentary switch work?

Anybody else do this? Did a search but didn't find what I was looking for.

TIA, Jason.

i believe i might be wrong but i believe the antenna wire is much like a remote wire on an amp it only sends power as a siginal to raise or lower with power it is up without its down so a regular toggle will do fine and it will go fully down and motor will stop once reaching the bottom.

The "motor stop" logic is all controlled at the antenna.

All you need to do is send the antenna 12v when you want it up, and nothing when you want it down.

I put a toggle on both my Roadmasters with stock radio to keep the antenna down when playing CD or tape.

You just need 12V to the switch, then out the green wire for the antenna.

Are you sure that Pioneer has not blue pwr ant wire? I thought they all did.

just splice into wiring exiting your pioneer head unit which i believe is blue as above said and mount switch to control power and route back to stock wiring.

Yea, found the blue wire.....I was thinking about using the english/metric switch. Is it possible to use that? If not guess I just have to get a switch and hide i somewhere.

If you put a single DIN head unit into the 1-1/2 DIN opening, you may have room for a switch panel under your head unit (depending on how you mounted the head unit).

[I put a switch panel under my head unit in the 1/2 DIN space leftover after I put a 1-1/2 DIN head unit into the 2 DIN opening in my car. I had room for several switches and a set of audio input jacks. The switches handle my antenna lock down, turning off the subwoofer, and keeping power to the unit when the ignition is off. Sorry but I don't have pics on my web page of this.]
