Sounds like you just have a bad connection at radio power wire. Check radio fuse first to make sure it's o.k. but then you'll have to get someone to trace power wire to back of radio & check connections.

How do I put the radio antena down to go through a car wash?


If it's an electric antenna, it should retract when you turn the radio off. If not either the relay or the drive motor has failed. if its a "fixed" antenna, you don't do anything and just leave it in place.

I think it's a problem with the radio itself. The antenna only responds when the radio is turned on / off. So the antenna sounds like it's working properly.

The radio antenna on the Volvo S 40 is fully retractable. It opens up upon swtching on the radio and retracts upon its closing. The radio antenna is now stuck although the motor can be heard.


I have similar problem. Not sure why it started, but the motor TRIES to move the antenna when turned on or off, but it pushes it maybe an inch or two then stops. If i try and pull it up or push it down it is VERY hard to do, feels like i am forcing it somewhat.
Its almost like the motor has forgotten where the top & bottom is. Any solution would be much much appreciated!

Antenna motor runs while the radio is on or off. The antenna is stuck in the extended position. When the car is shut off the antenna motor continues to run to retract the antenna, but it doesn't go


You need to pull the fuse for the antenna or just unplug it. It has a fairly ridgid plastic wire that pushes the antenna up and down. Works fine until the wire breaks then it rolls up (antenna down) but it never increases resistance because the antenna never comes down , it's like a fishing reel when the lure breaks off, so the motor thinks that the antenna is still coming down and it will run and run and run trying to do it's job. Your lucky it stuck up and not down. If you want your antenna to go up and down again you'll have to buy and install a new one.

Antenna will not retract.


The most likely cause is your antennae mast is broken or has stripped its teeth. The mast is sold separately and contains the snake-like gear. The motor must be removed through the right inner fender well. You may have to open up the gear in the motor to get out the broken piece of the snake-like gear,

'95 Riv - antenna does not retract


Most power antennas have a plastic cable with teeth that feed into the power antenna motor.  I recommend replacing the antenna.  A special tool is required to remove the slotted nut where the antenna comes out of the car.  You could use something else, but be careful not to scratch your paint.  I also recommend taking apart the motor to remove any remaining broken pieces of cable.  Usually only one nut holds the cover of the antenna motor in the center. After removal of the old antenna follow these instructions: 1.  Feed the new antenna cable down into the antenna motor; teeth facing the front of the car. 2.  Have someone turn key enough to operate the radio.  You should feel the teeth raking against the teeth in the motor.  If you do not, face the teeth toward the back of the car. 3.  Have your assistant turn the radio off, and allow the antenna motor to pull in the cable.  The motor will automatically stop when it feels resistance.   4.  Return the slotted nut, so you do not have to repeat steps 2 and 3.

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.
