Question about 1999 Mazda 626
The antenna suddenly stopped going down when the car is shut off. Now it hums for 30 seconds and stops. Is there a way to disconnect the power until we decide to replace or repair the antenna?
Spray the antenna with a spray lubricant (WD40) or similar. and let it sit for an hour.
Then start the car and see what happens.
The antenna is probably full of filth or corrosion..
If that doesn't work take the side cover off the trunk on the side where the antenna is and you will find a plug in electrical connector near the motor that winds the antenna up and down, pull that plug out and the antenna will stop trying to wind itself down..

Tips for a great answer:
Engine stalling and rough run
issue at low speeds
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
