Yes you have to have an antenna. Does the car not have one originally? If you changed the radio you would have unhooked a large black wire in the back of it. Or maybe it just came unplugged. Anyways without one it won't pick up ****. Good luck

Rear whip antenna stuck in up position. Motor is working but antenna not moving down.

there is a plastic, white toothed belt inside the motor that has probably stripped or broken, a common problem as they get older. There are rebuild kits that are sold on ebay for Ford antennae motors, and they are cheap (about $15). They can be a little tricky to replace as you have to remove t motor and take the assembly apart, and it needs to be 'timed' properly so that it stops when fully extended or retracked. You can also usually find a used one, again on ebay or a junk yard for less than $50, sometimes as cheap as $20 in a pick-and-pull junkyard.

Hot to stop engine heat from entering cockpit

The control switch for temperature is faulty, cable must have come off, leaving the heater core flap open. Make sure all cables are connected to the climate control switches. If it isn't anchored properly, it will move freely and not controlling the flaps or valve to position. Cable locks do come off and fall around the assembly, once that happens the cable doesn't have any counter resistance of it's position and move from it's own slack making it useless..

You mean the crankshaft position sensor. Just follow your spark plug wires to the coil packs and ignition module. Then there will be two wires from ignition module to crankshaft position sensor which is in lower part of the engine block

It sounds like your vehicle needs a major tune-up. Try putting in some fuel injector cleaner gas additive and a new air intake filter.

Power antenna wont go down

The flex drive cord that raises the antenna mast and lowers it is most likely broken, you can replace just the mast and drive cord.
