The power antenna on my car (1999 SE) was badly bent and never worked. I bought the car this way. I replaced it with another antenna in working order. However, it does not function and it is not the antenna. It had an aftermarket stereo system installed before I owned it. The previous owner reinstalled the factory head unit.
1. I believe it is not the fuse, as the same fuse works the power locks, trunk release, and horn; all these work
2. Tested the orange wire and it has full power.
3. Tested the green wire and it has no power ‘at all’ when the radio is turned on/off.
Does the green wire connect to the radio? I am assuming the previous owner might have cut the green wire, so the antenna motor would not drain the battery (as the antenna was broken). I might have to pull the radio to see if the green wire is cut or disconnected. Lastly, how difficult is it to remove the plastic piece from the dash?
