Default help with universal power antenna wiring

Hi,

This is my first post on this forum so forgive me if I do something wrong.

I have just purchased an universal power antenna for my 2001 PT cruiser and need a bit of help with the wiring.

I have mounted it to the wing and have also plugged the antenna cable into the adapter under the kick panel (which I read about in another thread) I just need help with the 2 power wires.

The antenna has 3 wires:

Red - I'm guessing is probably a constant 12v wire.
Green - again I'm guessing that its probably for when you switch the radio on.
Black - which I'm pretty sure is ground.

Here is a link to the antenna so you can see for youself:

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Brilliant thanks for the response. Just tested the wires and found that the pink wire in the radio connector was a constant 12v and the red and white wire also in the radio connector was only hot when the ignition was on. but couldn't find a wire that was only hot when the radio was on.

Thanks for your help so far.
