Antenna motor runs but antenna does not move ate


Hi Carl.,

If the antenna motor runs and the antenna does not move out, then there is something wrong inside the antenna unit. Replacing a fuse will not solve the problem. Change the antenna unit.

Good luck.

first of all, is your radio factory or aftermarket? If its factory the you probably have a bad ground or a short in the radio power to antenna. If its after market, then the remote antenna wire is hooked up wrong. Check to make sure the antenna wire is hooked up to the antenna. Good luck

Antenna does not come up


If the antenna motor makes noise, then the antenna motor is ok, and the antenna is stuck, oil it with a light lubricating oil (3-in-1, Marvel Mystery oil, store brands, etc.)

If antenna motor makes no sound, replace. Antenna motor.

I don't have a service guide for this car to help you replace the antenna motor. Usually replacing these motors are a screwdriver job, but you may need to buy a special "antenna wrench" to remove a specialized keyed nut holding the antenna to the body.

I was removing the antenna, and it broke off. Do


Depending on if your car has a power antenna or not, you may have to replace the whole unit.

The good news is, no, you usually don't have to replace the wires on most GM vehicles. Open your trunk, remove the insulating carpet from the side of the trunk where your antenna is located , to expose the power antenna unit.

This is a stock photo of what the power antenna unit and kit looks likes.

Unplug the electrical connector from the antenna . Unscrew the plastic ring on the outside of the car, where the antenna rest on the body of the vehicle. Pull the antenna unit inside through the hole to remove.

You can usually get a new one for about $89 bucks at Autozone.

Installation is the reverse of remove. Make sure the ignition key is completely off when performing the replacement. Follow all installation instruction on the package. Improper installation could cause rain to leak in your antenna during bad weather and not be water tight.

Replace antenna


Remove old Antenna
  1. Activate the antenna switch to the up position.
  2. Using the wrench or needle-nose pliers, loosen and remove the original retaining nut on the base of the antenna mast.
  3. Gain access to the underside of the area of the trunk where the antenna is located.
  4. Remove the bracket or brace that is below the hole and holding the antenna in place.
  5. Remove the mast.
  6. Find the motor that controls the antenna mast. Generally, power antennas will have a constant 12-volt lead and a ground lead. The ground lead will be grounded to the panel next to the motor.
  7. Remove the ground lead from the panel.
  8. Pull out the antenna coaxial cable.
  9. Unplug the coaxial from the extension coaxial cable.
  10. Remove the original antenna coaxial cable. Note the route the cable follows.

Install new Antenna
  1. Inspect the fender area where the antenna mast will be mounted for rust.
  2. Clean the area before installing the new antenna.
  3. Plug the new antenna coaxial cable to the extension coaxial cable.
  4. Plug the new antenna's coaxial cable into the radio's chassis antenna jack if there is no extension coaxial cable. Tie or tape the string you put on the extension cable to the new antenna coaxial cable. This assures that the 2 cables stay together as you route them to the antenna mount in the fender.
  5. Connect the power lead of the antenna to the power antenna lead on the radio.
  6. Connect the 12-volt constant lead to the antenna to a 12-volt source or to the ignition switch.
  7. Direct the new antenna cable via the same route followed by the original antenna cable on up to the hole in the fender in which the mast will be mounted.
  8. Ground the ground lead from the motor to a clean metal surface on the metal panel near the mount.
  9. Insert the mast into the hole. Face the serrated side of the plastic cable on the bottom of the mast toward the motor side. The plastic cable can be inserted freely to about 12 inches and will stop.
  10. Turn on antenna switch to down position until the plastic cable goes down and catches into the gear mechanism of the drum housing. If the plastic cable does not gear into the mechanism, twist the cable slightly until the cable contacts into the gear mechanism while the motor is in operation.
  11. Stop the motor after the cable goes into the housing 12 to 25 inches.
  12. Secure the bracket or strap to the bottom of the antenna mast and to the metal fender.
  13. Replace the retainer nut to the base of the antenna mast and secure tightly.
  14. Replace the panel that covers the antenna mount area.

Antenna replacement


There should be a nut at the base of the antenna or in the car right under the antenna. take that off. then there might be two ways to do it. 1. you might have to run new antenna wire to under the dash board. or the antenna will need the adapter right under where the antenna sits.
