RE: [DML] RE: [DMCForum] Which wire for power antenna?



Note that DMCH has defroster switches without the logo stenciled onto
them, therefore a blank on/off switch that you can install replacing a
blank nest to a window switch.

I found it.

On my 1983 Delorean It is the white wire that runs up the center
console.
Behind the driver's seat it has a connector that adapts it into a green
color wire. The green wire runs to a relay block where it spans out to a
white, yellow and brown set of wires that goes back to the rear pontoon.
When I separated the connector where the wire goes from White to Green,
the
mast lowers down. When re-connected, it raises again.

I can sever the white wire on the center console, and wire my switch in
there. :)

Thanks

I forgot to ask, what's the brand and model number for your radio?

I just looked at my schematic and the antenna isn't even listed. If you
aren't using an amplifier you could cut the wire near the radio and add
your
switch in there. It should accomplish the same result.

Mine is an early car and if I remember correctly the antenna wires ran
separately behind the driver's seat and into the rear pontoon. It was
very
obvious.

I have no amp in the car....

I do remember a wire on the radio to be hooked up to the power antenna
lead,
but I don't remember which wire it was on the Delorean that it attached
to.

Kevin,

Do you have your wiring diagram for your radio? If not, you can probably
find it for download on the web.

It can depend on the type of radio you have. Some have separate antenna
and
amplifier turn on wires while some have just antenna and are also used
to
turn on the amplifier. If you have the latter and using an amplifier you
will have to add the switch after the amplifier.

I want to install a switch in my center console to cut power to the
antenna.
Why? I listen to mostly my ipod (directly connected) and the CD Player.
I
think the car looks nicer without the antenna up while driving and also
would like to preserve the life of the antenna mast. 

When I installed my radio several years ago, I thought I remember there
being a wire that runs up the center console that feeds power to the
antenna
if the radio is on/off. Is my memory correct? If so, what color the wire
that I want to tap into with my switch?
