The stock power antenna was driving me nuts with the way the after market head unit was constantly running it up and down, plus it looked tired and heavy.
I purchased and installed a cheapy antenna from the local auto parts store and it had a standard type plug - I think its called a Motorola connector. I figured it would be easy to plug into the stock antennae - not so.
I looked at removing the stock antenna wire but its a major job to remove it from the interior so I looked at ordering an adapter.
I could not find anything that looked right using traditional search methods so I emailed some pictures to Crutchfield whom I have had good luck with before. I was shocked they could not help! They are a huge on line DIY car stereo site - sort of the Amazon of car stereo.
More searching and I found this place:
I sent them the pics and after some research got back to me and said they had and adapter.
Adapter AA02 - ~$10.
I received it yesterday and installed it.
No more power antenna!
Great service from The Antenna Source - recommended!
As a bonus I think I saved about 2 lbs!
There is a pic of the antenna in post 710 above. There is a stubby replacement for about $6 that I am going to try also.
