I do have the '94 Accord service manual and using that I've already
replaced the radio once, so I know how to do it. However, I'm not sure
the best place is at that wiring harness to make the splice for the
toggle switch. Oh, and yes, you're right about the color coding of the
antenna trigger wire: it is YEL/WHT at the antenna end. WHT/BLU is for
the constant battery voltage there.

If you put in an after-market stereo, you probably used an adapter
harness that plugs in between the stereo and the original plug on the
car wiring harness. If so, I would splice the toggle switch into this
adapter harness.

Actually, I installed the same model AM/FM radio as the original
was, so I needed no adapter harness. I got the replacement radio from a
junked car.
