Well if you asking about connecting the antenna jack from the car into the back of your aftermarket head unit, there's supposted to be a female port on the head unit. It looks kinda like a headphone jack. If you're talking about somthing else, then I'm not exactly sure maybe you could show us some pictures? thumbsup


Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

The wire from your head unit labeled antenna or remote antenna (likely a blue colored wire) is not used in celicas since our stock antenna's dont go up or down. Just put it away, your head unit's radio will work fine as long as you have the Antenna from the car plugged into the head unit. There is a difference. Hope i have helped and you understand.

Sorry, didnt notice 03s had power antennas. Well in that case you have three options that i can think of right away. Just tell me what wires you have coming from your head unit, and you said the black wire is the wire coming from the antenna right?

Well if your head unit has an Amp remote wire or Antenna remote wire you can use either wire to connect it to your antenna's wire. This will signal the antenna to power up when your head unit is on. If you dont have these wires on your head unit you have more options like you could connect a custom switch which is easy to make but kind of annoying since you will have to switch it everytime you want the antenna for the radio. Like I said, give me some details on what wires you have available from your head unit and your antenna and i will tell you what to do for sure, k? and to help I could make a drawing for you if you need one.

Well, i forgot if that abbreviation is for the Antenna or if it is for a custom Attention switch. What head unit do you have?, Does it have a button labeled ATT that makes it quite down. Tell me all the wires coming from your head unit and i could help more.

Thnx

well yes it is the ATT wire, and i know that wire is to make it quite for phone calls and what not. I have a sony deck, and the wires are: 12v constant and acc, luminescent, ATT, and front and back speaker wires.. i was thinking maybe i can hook it up to one of my stock wires that i covered with black tape that are not in use, but i have no idea which one will make it go up when i put it in radio... confused cry

well, i can tell you three things you could do: deal

1)Hook up the antenna wire to the ACC. and everytime your car turns on, your antenna powers up

2)Connect antenna wire to any of the speaker wires from your head unit, with this your antenna powers on when your head unit is on, since it will be playing sound (antenna will be powered even if cds are playing, so that sucks)

3)Or connect it to a switch, and connect the switch to your 12V constant and just switch the antenna on when you need it. Annoying but works.

Other than that i cant help you to make your antenna power up exactly when you use the radio since your head unit has no remote antenna wire, but the above will work safely and fine. you decide now. hope i have been of help. grin

Its the BLUE wire..Connect the solid blue wire to the decks blue wire that has a white line to it aka Remote wire...I hope you bought harnesses so you didnt cut anything. anyway when you connect the blue wire to the blue/white wire it turns on when power comes to the car thus making antenna raise! any questions on stereos pm me!
