I wasn't able to get the power antenna to work after getting rid of the bose and putting in a kenwood, so now i plan on going straight for the relay and running a cable from there. I searched the forum and found three posts about this all saying that the relay should be under the rear trim, all i found was the hatch poper relay.

I have the GM service manual and it has a picture of the relay but i can't figure out where it is?



Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Dave :confused:

Under the rear black plastic piece in the cargo area...#2 would be the bracket that holds the release for the targa top storage latch,,,

Yep left side attached to #2 with 2 7mm screws...you should see a bracket with 2 holes as shown on the rear of #2 in the diagram.

There's nothing attached to there. The wires that come into the car from the antenna plug into a plug that you can see in pictures 1 and 4 (pink black and orange).

:huh:

well there's nothing on the left side except for the three wires that come in from the antenna and then it plugs into a body harness. On the other side there is a relay for the hatch release and some other box with 3 wires going into it, might it be that?



left side connector



right side with the hatch release realy and something else
