Antenna Relay

Where is it located? My antenna stopped working and the last time this happened was because of a bad relay.

Hm, reading through the eletrical diagram it shows the power antenna getting power from fuse #24, a 7.5A fuse. That fuse powers all sorts of other things, sun roof and clock and a zillion accessories, so have you seen any other problems?

After that fuse it splits off onto wire 20U, which powers the power antenna, vehicle security, and "EL-NATS". Security system working okay?

Maybe there is a relay build into the antenna unit it's self? No "standard" relay (meaning a pluggable relay in the relay box under the hood) is shown in the eletrical diagram as being associated with the power antenna...

Not really sure if there's a pluggable one. The audio store I sent the truck into to get fixed said it was the relay. I just figured there was one. Got my friend who works at Nissan checking it out now. I just hate to bother him during working hours.

I checked fuse #24 & #12 (the Nissan tech recommended that). Both were fine. Fuse #24 actually has a 15A fuse in it. Although I don't think that's a problem since the anntena had worked before. Any other suggestions?

Well, page 218 to 221 is the diag info:

Seems pretty straight forward, it gets power from two sources, one directly from the battery (fuse 24) and one through the sound system, the latter controlling if the antenna is up or down and the former actually powering the antenna motor. What I would do is pull that antenna connector (M69) and use a multi-meter to start checking the power wires and the grounds.
