    I’m putting in an OEM electric antenna,

    How does the circuit work?

    The 2 wires on the OEM antenna are
    1) solid green with a red strip
    2) solid green,

    The radio power antenna wire is yellow.

    Is this a positive negative setup ? How do you wire it up?


    How would you wire the antenna up?
    Thanks in advance

    If it's anything like my aftermarket antenna both needed power. One needs constant power (the wire that makes it go down) and the other needs power when the radio is on (makes it go up).

    So neither of these two green wires would be for a negative source ?

    Does it potentially ground via the mount like the horns do?

    Possibly, I just don’t want to short the antenna out by wiring it incorrectly

    Yeah def. I'd try going straight to the battery with alligator clips for each wire switching positive and neg to rule that out first.

    its been about 8 years since i put the radio in but im pretty sure i just wired the single wire that already ran to stock radio to the amplifier signal wire on the radio. i just turn the "amp" off and antenna goes down. like cynical said one wire to antenna is constant power and other is signal as far as i know

    I've done this but not with the shifter. I added a coolant temp light, trans temp light, 4hi, 4low and a indicator for when the lightbar is on. @BartMaster1234 help me with that part of it. Made the gel color indicator for the slot. Just have to install it. Yes some creative wiring but it all ties into the 3 original cluster plugs.
    I'll post some pics soon.

    It’s not much of a mod, but I thought it would be a good visual reminder to watch out for the big ass fan lurking beneath the shroud.
