    I have the same problem with a 1997 Cutlass Supremem antenna remaining in the up position.



    Is there anyway I can disconnect the antenna to get it to go down until I get it repaired?



    Thanks

Fault is within the power antenna unit. Needs replacement. If you dont mind the mast being up, it can be disconnected , in order to stop the motor running. Car washes will damage the mast in the event it stays up. Hope this helps.

THERE IS A SWITCH IN THE ANTENNA MODULE THAT SHUTS MOTOR OFF WHEN IT IS ALL THE WAY UP OR ALL THE WAY DOWN. YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE ANTENNA MODULE NOT A DIFFICULT JOB.

Check relay or if it's aftermarket radio I bid you Godspeed cuz it's probably the wiring then ??? Auto shops have repair books you can buy for twenty bucks that provide info on things like this.

My 96 Oldsmobile Delta 88 has had issues with a fuel leak for sesveral monthes. Just recently it's been having issues with power loss with driving, not starting right away, or reving the engine upon...


if still leaking will cause lower pressure which causes issues with engine fuel management such as idle -start -driveability and is dangerous

Location of fuel reset button


Hello rohoii.
Your Oldsmobile does not have one.
Ford has a "inertia switch" that is designed to shut off fuel in the event of an impact but no other North American brands are so equipped.
Your Oldsmobile fuel system will shut off if the engine stops.
Hope this helps you.

My power antenna runs even with ignition off. I have taken out the fuse for a quick fix. How can I disconnect it?


look by the hood hinge I think the wires with a plug come through there. you are looking for three wires plug. should be green, white, and grey. find it and unplug it.
If you dont find it there you will probably have to pull the inner fender down.
You can buy just the tip of the ant. with the nylon "noodle" (thats what I call it) aand repaired it by taking it apart and remove the broken nylon "noodle" , reassembling it and feeding a new noodle into the ant as you have somone turn the radio off.

Is there a fuse for a 1985 delta 88 power antenna


Depends. Is this factory or aftermarket? If factory... just the standard fuse in the fuse panel under the sah. Should be a red 15A. If aftermarket... there should be an inline fuse on the orange wire coming from the antenna.

Power antenna. 1986 olds delta 88


Obviously if fuse panel has a power antennae fuse, simply pull it, otherwise you may have to get to connector at motor by removing part or all of sheild in wheel well to access it in some cases. Only other option would be to remove radio from dash & disconnect antennae power wire from radio. Don't forget you want it up before disconnecting if you can.
