Default Antenna Switch

It has always bugged me ever since I put in my aftermarket cd player that the antenna still goes up. I'm not sure if it does this on all models but i hate it. So I bought a switch and wired it into the remote antenna wire. It works great and looks good, I put it just under my cd player, you can barely even see it.

Thats interesting that you say that. I was kinda expecting that to happen. However, my antenna only goes up when the radio is on. If I am playing a CD. The antenna doesn't budge.

It must be a wiring thing. Did you install it professionally or did you do it yourself? There has to some kind of bypass, because, my antenna thinks the deck is off if a CD is playing, unless I switch the mode over to radio.

I installed the deck myself. I guess it always went up because i connected it to the remote turn on wire. There was no seperate antenna wire coming out of the deck.
