My electric radio antenae was broken so I ripped the cable out from the top. Then my check engine light went on shortly after. Is there a correlation?

Mazda 626 1999 with electrical problems. Replaced alternator, battery checked out, electrical quits while driving.


When you say everything goes dead are we talking all lights, radio, wipers? If so, main power or ground cables bad or fusible link. If just engine, check coil, ignition module, crank/cam position sensor.

Having a large draw on the jumper usually indicates that the problem is in the main feed of the electrical system. I'd begin by checking the battery (charge and have it load tested). From there, check your positive cable that goes to the starter to make sure it has not touched and burned onto an exhaust component.
It's also possible to have either an internal short inside the starter or alternator...Also check main sub wiring for grounding (like the larger wire that goes to the back of the alternator). Though the problem was defined as "huge" most times a large short is far easier to find than an intermittent or slight draw from one of the smaller systems. Therefore, it should be relatively easy to find and repair.

Could be a bad battery and alternator, the alternator should still be covered. But the battery will need to be replaced, and make sure there are no short in the electrical system.

Fitting new antena aerial to Saab 93


Len-
The replacement only costs about $20. The dealer can also provide a replacement but it can cost upwards of $50+. Part number is 5035944.

The hardest part is removing the metal sleeve from the mast pole. Once you get this out, refit the new mast with the teeth so the motor will pull the new mast down when you turn the radio off. refit the 17mm nut on top of the mast and then turn the radio back on. It will click a few times and then be properly set.
