We present sensitive, high-resolution 21-cm VLBA+VLA observations of the radio jet and nuclear HI absorption in NGC 4151. The 25-mas (1.6-pc) resolution continuum image reveals a highly collimated radio jet, underlying the discrete components seen previously with MERLIN and the VLA. Spatially and kinematically complex HI absorption is detected against the whole 3-pc extent of the continuum component predicted by Ulvestad et al. to contain the AGN. Instead, we suggest the component against which the absorption is detected is part of the eastern counterjet, ruling it out as the location for the AGN.
