How to replace the stock antenna with a power antenna (Celica models 2000+)
The local auto parts store had the power antenna on sale this week ($58 Canadian).I got it from Canadian Tire. Looks just like the factory Toyota power antennas. Toyota wanted $250 for their power antenna (installed). This was just $58 Canadian. It took me two days to install the antenna. It was more trouble than I thought but worth it. I had trouble beacuse I didn't have instructions. You have them now so it should be easily done. Takes about 2-3 hours if you know what you're doing.
Connected 3 wires
2. +12 power and fuse (always on wire, blue and yellow wire on big connector on amplifier)
3. +12 radio/stereo on (red wire with 2 grey bands on the smaller connector on amplifier)
All of the wires noted here are connected to the GTS amplifier behind the glovebox.
Removed the following
1. Old antenna mast
2. antenna mounts inside trunk
Resused the old antenna base.
Ran wires down the passenger side door area to the area behind the glove box. Connected 2 wires to the amplifier wiring harness.
Looks and works just like my '97 Celica antenna now.
Thanks to everyone who helped me by posting the wiring harness color code.
