View Full Version : what is it

I recently picked up a replacement hatch for my celica with a 3 peice wing for dirt freakin cheap and in practically perfect condition. But my question is there is a cord on the right that looks like an antenna cord, but no idea what its for. My old hatch has the sleeve for it, but not the cable. Any ideas?

Could it be the cord to lift the cargo cover?

Would obviously easier to explain with a picture, however you mentioned that the new lid came with the 3 piece spoiler . . . did you have the spoiler on your old one? It could be the brake light cable.

well I cant find my damn camera lol so cant get a pic right now. It is on the passenger side, looks like an antenna plug. The car was a GTS, it did have a moonroof which i have and plan to install in my car. It is not for the brake light, the only other thing I could guess is the defroster but since my old hatch didnt have the plug that doesnt make sense

Secondary antenna plug? -- if I recall correctly, GTS with system 10 had an antenna wired into the hatch glass.

+1 . . .looked at BGB for you and there is a glass printed antenna, and with the pic you just posted, it would confirm that is what it is. If you didn't have it before, I doubt you'd need it now.

thats kinda crazy lol I wondered why the defroster was more apparent on this hatch. This GTS didnt have system 10 though
