I don't know where, and yest I did a search under 'antenna' and found no info.

I know though that somewhere I saw info on keeping the damn power antenna down when you are listening to a CD.

Try your search in Electrical. It involves an override switch. Use my member number on the search and you'll get the threads I've posted in about my own switch, but there are others that I've not posted in I'm sure.

Cool

I was under the impression that the power antenna wire from the stereo dropped it when a CD was inserted. It does that on my Alpine unit. . . Maybe a loose connection in the install?

Some head units have the ability to lower the antenna. Mine does not, so a switch was the answer. The radio is still handy for weather reports.

It's the green wire on the plug on the back of the radio. Just cut it and run it to a switch. I put mine in that empty area under the headlight switch.
Drop me an EMail if I can add anything else

Thanks, that sounds pretty simple. While my brother was getting his system installed for $180, I told them to fix the ant and they said "there is no way to do that". I knew he just didn't know how. BE HONEST DUDE!

Thumbs up

Don't feel like pullin' the radio back out? Trace the green wire back from under the hood at the antenna, it runs behind the right kick panel before going over to the radio. Installed my "cancel" switch inside the slot to the left of the steering wheel.
