I can't remember but I think that when I had the stock HU in there the antenna went up whenever it was on. But that was so long ago, and I changed out HU fairly quick that I don't remember at all.

If you antenna creates that much wind drag.....then you gotta get an */C....lol....Is it year specific with the antenna deal??? I think my 95 stays up when the HU is powered up...been a while because the CD players f'd in it though.

I think TJ'sblackbonne needs to check his own car to see if it stays up with a cd or not. i am almost positive it does stay up though.

I agree with 88 but i am almost sure that if you play a CD or casette that power antenna goes down. That is a function that i remember seeing if you want to go through a automatic car wash. The antenna is only up when the radio is on, and down when the CD/Tape function or the radio is powered off
