No fix for that screen , too costly and cheaper to purchase a new one. The cable inside the antenna is broken . Wrecking yard fix but check it prior to purchase.

Front passenger Window only will go up when driver door is open, Trunk pull down is not working, and the radio antennae will not retract.

if you try to operate the window as you move the door from close to open and it works then stops when moving the door then it could be the wiring that passes from the body of the car to the door itself were the door should have a rubber cover that covers the wiring.these have a tendency to brake wires in this area that will touch and not touch when the door is moved.the trunk and antenna could be a fuse problem that can be checked with a test light.when you turn off the radio do you hear the motor working,if so then the antenna motor will have to be should also hear the trunk pull down motor working.does it raise up with the trunk lid open or stay could need replacing.make sure the connector hasn`t been disconnected.

Antenna motor runs after car is shut off, without retracting the antenna. I have to disconnect my battery to stop it

Relay #27 in the box under the hood runs only the power antenna on a 1992. For the future here's the parts guide for everything in your jeep. Page 180 has a picture of what you want to pull.

I can hear the sound of the motor but the retractable antenna of the car radio do not work.

Try removing the motor and replacing. But before that try to see if it will come apart and check to see if parts inside are loose or striped.

I have just bought a lovely mazda 323F (s reg) however the electric aerial won't go up even though the motor (and the stereo) appears to be working. I have put some WD40 on it, is there anything else I can...

Does the antenna motor make any sound when you turn on the radio? (you should be able to hear it when it goes up and down. If you hear nothing, the antenna motor should be checked, as it may have burned out. If you hear something, the gears have probably stripped, so the motor runs, but won't extend and retract the antenna. countrycurt0

Power antenna does not go all the way up, does not power retract

Does the motor continue to run even though the mast doesn't retract? Is there a loud 'click - click - click" as it tries to retract and extend or more of a chattering noise? Did you clean and lubricate the spool into which the toothed belt goes when the antenna retracts? Use an all weather grease (white lithium). Did you clean the teeth on the gear that drives the belt? There is a small metal guide where the belt meets the drive gear, sometime this wears and allows the belt to slip on the gear. Pull the giude straight out, then rotate it 180 degress and reinstall.
