The only thing I remember about power antennas is that they would up and down with turning on and off the power source on the radio. When you turn on the radio, the antenna should go up. I don't think the speakers would affect the antenna.

I think the key word here is Pioneer. Unless the Pioneer radio has an antenna wire specifically to use for the antenna circuit to go up/down, it won't. While you have the antenna connected to the appropriate hole in the Pioneer unit, it needs more than that to make the up/down motor to work. If your Honda has a connector where the antenna goes through the fender, it won't work. I'm sure it does since you spent the money on it.

Look on your Honda radio for a separate wire that raises and lowers the antenna. If not, you are going to have to find it in the wire bundle. Read your users manual on the Pioneer to see if it does in fact have that option. If it does and everything is properly connected, then possibly there is a fuse malfunction.
