Hey guys. Just wondering if someone can help me out with my radio aerial. When I bought the car, the fuse box and battery were mounted in the boot. I relocated both back into the engine bay. I noticed there was a wire coming off the battery terminal going towards the radio aerial harness, and when I went to switch the radio on, the aerial didn't go up (it worked previous to taking the battery out). So I realised that wire had something to do with the radio wiring (power to make the aerial go up and down?).

If it's not too much trouble, can someone take a pic of their wiring, and show me how an unmongrelised car looks?

This wire I'm holding in the pic was off the battery terminal. Where should it be?:



Grateful for any help. Thanks.

I thought some S15's have the aerial in the rear window, and some on the rear right quarter panel? You can see my aerial in the pic above. Or am I going bonkers? :eek:hwell:
