How do you replace a 1994 Honda Prelude antenna?

You would need to get a tool to remove the notched chrome piece that holds the antenna mast, or carefully use pliers to unscrew it out. After you remove that, the antenna itself is held by a 10mm bolt. to get to it you'll need to open up the trunk lining near the antenna location and remove that bolt. Then, pull the antenna far enough to disconnect the antenna wire and power. Assuming the antenna motor is still functional, you can then replace the antenna mast with a new one. Or, you can install an aftermarket rubber antenna.


Can the antenna on a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo go down?

Chances are that, unless you have a high end stereo system in your Jeep with electric antenna, you probably have a fixed post antenna that will not retract. This can be replaced with an aftermarket antenna that can go down but my experience is that the sheet metal that the antenna is mounted to is at such a severe angle that every aftermarket mounting kit that I found will not allow the antenna to stand properly vertical. You might try the dealer if its important enough. I believe they got away from the older style retractable antennas because they just don't last.....especially if you go down a trail that has branches that will catch the mast.


Why does stereo accessory wire does not work with aftermarket stereo on 2002 intrigue?

Can you replace power antenna on 99 4 runner without replacing it with a power antenna?

There are a lot of aftermarket antenna masts that you can get to fit your 4 runner and if you do decide to go with a fixed mast just make sure that you make sure that the wiring harness at the mast doesn't ground out on any metal. Other than that there is no problem with replacing it with a fixed mast antenna.

The antenna location on a 2000 Ford Expedition is going to vary depending on the type of radio installed. If XM Radio is available, the antenna will be a very small square on the back roof of the vehicle. If the radio is normal, the antenna is located on the side of a rear, driver's side window.


Antenna TV plus netflix and hulu.?

The new TV antennas look more like modern transistor radios. I installed an indoor amplified antenna and get 20 channels which include the major networks, this works best in metropolitan areas. Then I installed a external WIFI antenna and get speeds faster then DSL or Cable Basic Internet. WIFI is very cheap and in some places free. Finally I installed a cell phone antenna and dropped my land line. With the cell phone antenna/repeater I get 5 bars at home on my cell phone. I dropped my landline, cable TV and Cable Internet. Saving $170.00 per month, you have to do the math because the antennas aren't free. TV Antenna approximately $40.00, WIFI Antenna $400.00, Cell Phone Antenna/Repeater approximately $200.00. You have to look at your monthly savings in my case it was worth every penny, to get rid of those monthly bills.

How do you get the antenna to go up with a new stereo installed if the antenna wire is connected to the stereo but the antenna won't raise now even from the switch?

The motor that raises and lowers the antenna is controlled by a wire which is connected to the power switch in the stock radio. The wire from the antenna itself has nothing to do with raising and lowering the antenna. Touch the wires that were connected to the stock radio to a hot wire and see if the antenna starts to move. If if does, hook that wire to the wire from the new radio which is supposed to control the antenna motor. If there is no such wire, connect the antenna motor wire to the Accessory circut. The antenna will go up whenever the key is turned on. Or, you can get fancy and install a switch for it.

Is there a radio antenna plugged in back of radio controls in a c320?

No. The antenna (a black wire and a blue wire) plugs into an antenna amplifier which is mounted below the rear glass. That amplifier output plugs into the radio control. The guys at EconoAutoParts.com helped me with this answer. My AM stations all disappeared after I had window tint installed.
