have a look at my post on retrofitting an aerial to a VH SL/E , although the model is different I think the operation is similar. Good luck

Sounds like you're not using the controller box that they had in them for electric aerials.

When i did dads VK it worked as factory, there is a little magic box somewhere under the dash or fuse box that controls the aerial.

You would have to check a wiring diagram but it has a constant power, then an input from radio to tell it to go up or down. Then whilst up and radio on you can move it with buttons.

From what I understand you need a 'Semi Automatic' aerial to use with the module and dash up/down button; a 'Fully Automatic' aerial won't work with the module and up/down button. Fully automatic aerials are common and found regularly on ebay; semi automatic aerials are rare and extremely difficult to find. Also and equally important you will need the original radio cassette which compliments the module operation.
