ok, those of you that used the power antenna as the remote turn on wire...did you also have problems with your AM stations? I can't pick up a single AM station now! I don't want to buy satellite radio just so I can keep listening to my ESPN radio or Diamondback games when I'm stuck in traffic.

All I did was use a quick connect connector to splice into the wire that powers the antenna when the radio is on(I think it'* a green wire) by the antenna itself. Antenna works fine up and down and I get all FM stations clear.

Anyone else experience this?

Just resurrecting an old topic while doing searches for information...

I'm gonna be installing two small 2-channel amplifiers (40Wx2 rms), and I was intending on using the power antenna wire as the remote turn-on. How would I wire this, would I just tap into the wire to make a set of parallel connections, or will I somehow need to wire all three devices (2 amps and antenna) in series? Would the stock head unit (CD player w/ 7-band eq) be able to handle the additional load?

Thanks for any help!

The remote turn-on can be hooked up to anything that is turned on by the stereo. The power antenna may be too sensitive to do this, but any of the back speakers should be able to handle the load. The other thing you can do is hook it up to an iginition controlled wire.

I have a crappy 200 watt amp with 2 10" subs in the trunk running off the remote turn on from the power antenna. I've had zero problems with this setup other than the need to upgrade my 7 year old(and did I say crappy) amp.

I use the antenna area for my ground, while we're on the subject, but i just ran my own turn on wire, and my deck has two remote wires aside from the antennae one.
