    Vy Crewman Antenna

    G’day, I’ve fitted a new head unit and the power antenna worked fine, but once I’d installed the steering wheel control module the power antenna stopped working. Used pioneer plug and play systems. Can anyone shed some light on this?? Cheers, can’t find anything on the page!

    Looking at anti-theft alarm info in a manual I came across this image showing the various control modules in VT-VY cars and I'm perplexed by this "diversity antenna module". I can't find any references to it online in relation to Commodores. What does it do?

    Since installing an aftermarket head unit I've got poor radio reception, especially AM.

My very basic...

    UHF/VHF antenna query

    Hi, here's an interesting problem which seems wierd, but may affect a fair number of owners who need to use 2-way radios from their cars. I want to fit a small vhf/uhf amateur radio set into my VF SV6 sedan. The radio itself is tiny and presents no problem. But trying to find a place to...

    Aerial motor mounting bracket problem

    I have just installed a new aerial mast in my VS and I'm having some difficulty reattaching the mounting bracket. I loosened the 1/2 inch bolt which secures the bracket to gain better access to the motor as I don't have a jack and couldn't remove the wheel to do this. I installed the mast...

    Antenna clicking

    Whenever I turn the radio on/off, the automated antenna erects/retracts and makes a clicking sound at the end of the process. My best guess is the motor is winding the antenna more than it should and the clicking sound is teeth jumping? I haven't a clue how to fix that :/ Would it be worth...
