What each colourvwiringis for in vx ,2002,Commodore


The Holden Commodore (VX) is an executive car that was produced by the Australian manufacturer Holden from 2000 to 2002. It was the second iteration of the third generation of this Australian made model. Its range included the luxury variants, Holden Berlina (VX) and Holden Calais (VX), and it formed the basis for a new generation Holden Ute (VU) coup? utility and Holden Monaro (V2) coup?.
The VX series was produced between October 2000 and September 2002, as a minor restyling update to the VT series from 1997. It introduced greater model differentiation along with gains in crash safety. An intermediate Series II was launched in August 2001, featuring a revised suspension system among other changes.

Thanks,

Landon

I have a 15-20 ft. pine tree. We recently trimmed alot off the bottom of it and now the healthy branches on the tree are turning brown. Is my tree dying?


Pine trees seal themselves with sap fairly quick so you don't have to worry. If the needles are turning yellow and dropping it could be experiencing some shock or it may just be dropping needles for the fall.
If the needles are actually turning brown, check the trunk and branches for signs of boring insect damage such as hole with sap coming out.

How do i fit aerial mast only, to already existing aerial motor? thanks


Typically there are two ways: easy and major surgery. The easy way is available, depending on exactly how the old mast is broken....Car off, radio off, unscrew the external pieces of the antenna at the mount, right where it exits the vehicle...Have assistant turn on radio and activate the antenna. It should spit the whole mast and inner piece. The new one goes in, BUT BE ready to carefully and without kinks, feed the new mast assembly.
If this method does not work, you have to extract the entire motor assembly and open it up. Sometimes easier to replace the assembly.

Hi,just want to know where fuse for electric aerial is situated as aerial is damaged and makes terrible noise when i start my truck and turn it off.my vehicle is a 1996 mitsubishi challenger


Hi,
Ussually the fuse is in the aerial motor connector or comes with the radio fuse.
If ur annoyed by the antenna, just disconnect the electrical connector in the antenna, not the antenna wire!

U could buy the rod of the antenna only it is chepaer than buying the whole assembly!

Order it in ur nearest parts dealer!

My volvo S40 (Y reg) antenna mast get caught by a branch of tree and now when i switch off the car, it can't goes in fully. Help!!! my husband will kill me!! well, not really!!!


well they are almost impossible to straighten without breaking most likely it will snap off and you may need to replace the whole auto antenna unit ( not to exppensive if you can fit it) best of luck you can try straighten it if you want.... best of luck p.s if you try straighten i would recommend using pliers to squeeze the antenna back into shape at the bottom of the bend just be careful not to squish it flat etc.....

Antenna will not go up or down?


Check the connection to the power antenna. If it has power, the motor is shot. If no power, check the fuses...

Common problem. Salvage Yard would be your best bet as a new one is pricey.

Automatic antenna on my '97 500sl is not being driven up and down. Antenna motor runs when radio turned on and off. Antenna slides up and down manually very easily.


Mercedes preferred supplier of aerial masts is Hirschmann. There is a connector to the top of the box a coax aerial connection to the mast root, an earth lead strap and a bolted bracket to the base. The aerial mast exits through the car skin in a rubber fitted sleeve. You say that you can hear the motor running but that the mast refuses to emerge. The beauty of Hirschmann is that their motor drive antenna assemblies are readily disassembled (and reassembled). You will need to take the mast assembly out of the vehicle; disconnect the wiring plug socket, remove the bracket bolt, earth strap and unscrew the coax cable connector. Pull the mast firmly down and out of the body work sleeve. The outer aerial mast is driven up by a toothed plastic flexible inner rod normally stored in a coil within the motor assembly. Remove the torx screw in the middle of the rounded end and separate the two halves. At the top is the electric motor set horizontally which drives a rubber belt to a helical drive immediately below it lying parallel. If this belt is broken this would give rise to the motor running but not engaging . The helical drive engages with the edge of the storage drum feeding out and retrieving the coiled rod to raise and lower the antenna. If the helical drive or the drum edge has missing teeth then the aerial cannot function. All these components can be be bought from Hirschmann spares or through your Mercedes dealer.

THE ELECTRIC AERIAL ON MY 2003 VOLVO S40 STICKS IN THE DOWN POSITION. THE MOTOR IS TRYING TO RAISE IT BUT FAILS.


the antenna mast has a nylon cable attached to the end of it which goes into the electric motor that raises it and lowers the mast. This cable has snapped apart causing this problem. A new mast or antenna will be needed to repair this back to working condition

Pt cruiser aerial


At the base of the antenna, take a small crescent wrench or pliers and unscrew the antenna from the mounting bracket. Any Chrysler dealer should have a replacement antenna.
