Thanks FarOut but I was thinking more of a inline switch so if I should decide to listen to the radio I could just throw the switch and reactivate the antenna. The fuse removal is a option though . Thanks
88 Convert ( SOLD ) /1973 coupe 4 speed/1964 Vert!
It looks like
You can take a peek-A-boo at the assy if you remove both tail lights ( Pass side ).
There is a sheild over the entire antenna assy.
What your looking for are 2 connectors
1) Coax for the actual antenna signal.( not this one).
2) A 3 wire connector ( antenna motor drive)
You would have to run 2 wires into the cabin to make or break the Dark Green circut ( SPST switch) and install that where you like.
The pix in the shop manual doesn't show the level of detail needed to assist further.
The pix for the convertible shows removal thru the tail light hole & the 2 wires ( coax & 3 conductor cable) and there is a grommet
to go from the cabin to the outerworld in the rear corner..1/2 way up.
The schematic for 1998 shows an orange Pin A ( Always Hot) and a dark green Pin B( radio on command) Hot when radio is on.
And a black Pin C ground.
But the connector drawing shows...
Pin 1 N/C
Pin 2 Dk Green power ant relay feed-coil
Pin 3 Pink Radio signal on
Some observation is in order.
Still betting on Dk Green
To install the bypass kit do you have to access the antenna motor or tap in the green line somewhere near the fuse box. I really don't want to take the tail lights out to get at the motor. Thanks, Michael
the rt quarter can be removed very easy,its only screwed on with less than 15 torx screws but you have to remove the rt tail light to get to the 10 mm nuts that hold the rt side of the bumper cover. It is only a 20 minute job. The coupe has the antenna in the rear window. and my hardtop really sucks , it has a fixed antenna.
