Question about 1995 Jaguar XJ6

1 Answer

Antenna sinks while radio is on

Since a few weeks the motorized antenna on my 1996 XJ6 only comes out in about 50 % of the cases when I switch on the radio, or it gets down while the radio is still on. If that happens, it's impossible to get the antenna out again until the contact has been switched off completely. Switching the radio on and off many many times won't help. I measured the voltage on the antenna connector pins and it looks like the mid of 3 pins controls the up/down position of the antenna. That is, it carries 12 V when the antenna comes out correctly, and it stays 0 V in the cases the antenna refuses to come out. So apparently the problem is not in the antenna, but in the source of the voltage on the mid connector pin. My question: is this directly connected to the radio (which would mean that I probably need to replace the radio :-( ), or is there some other module in the car that takes care of this ?

Dont be fooled by your voltage reading the fault lays within the arial itself i worked on jaguars for many years from an appprentice up the reason the arial wont come out fully is because it probably needs a good clean using wd40 and a clean rag with the arial extended start from the bottom and spray and wipe upwards

Need to know location of the fuse for power antena for 95 jagur xj6


There is not a particular fuse for the radio that I have found. It seems that the Jaguar radio is specifically set to power the antenna. The installer should tell you what they did with the wire. If you told them the antenna was broken, or if they couldn't get it working, my bet is that they left the yellow, or blue antenna wire unhooked during installation. If you have a good antenna, and you have confirmed it, then the antenna should work when the radio is activated. That is the only solution other than the radio having an malfunction. You can check the 10 amp fuse on the back of the radio, but my bet is the antenna wire.

Thanks.

Need to know how to remove a regular antenna from a 1996 Toyota Tacoma. It is not a power antenna.


Toyota Pick-ups/Land Cruiser/4Runner 1989-1996
Antenna - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

If your antenna mast is the type where you can unscrew the mast from the fender, simply do so with a pair of pliers. Most damaged antennas are simply the result of a truck wash or similar mishap, in which the mast is bent.

Manual Antenna
  1. Disconnect the antenna cable at the radio by pulling it straight out of the set. Depending on access, this may require loosening the radio and pulling it out of the dash.
  2. Working under the instrument panel, disengage the cable from its retainers.
On some models, it may be necessary to remove the instrument panel pad to get at the cable.
  1. Outside, unsnap the cap from the antenna base.
  2. Remove the screw(s) and lift off the antenna, pulling the cable with it, carefully.
To install:
  1. When reinstalling, make certain the antenna mount area is clean and free of rust and dirt. The antenna must make a proper ground contact through its base to work properly.
  2. Install the screws and route the cable into the cab. Make certain the cable is retained in the clips, etc.
  3. Connect the cable to the radio; reinstall the radio if it was removed.

Power Antenna Mast
The power antenna system contains a relay. If the power antenna is inoperative, the relay is the first place to look. The actual motor rarely fails.
The power antenna mast is replaceable on the Pick-Up and 4Runners. If the mast is damaged or broken, proceed as follows:
  1. Perform this repair with the battery cables connected. Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position.
  2. Remove the antenna nut.
  3. If equipped with a CD player, press the AM and FM buttons on the receiver and simultaneously turn the ignition switch to ACC .
  4. For non-CD player units, press the AM button and simultaneously turn the ignition switch to ACC .
  5. The antenna motor will run, unwinding the mast from the spool. have an assistant guide the mast so it doesn't fall and damage the bodywork. When fully extended, the mast will be released. Remove it, and leave the ignition in the ACC position.
To install:
  1. Insert the new cable so that the teeth face the rear of the vehicle. Feed the cable into the motor until the cable reaches the bottom, about 12 in. (30cm).
  2. Have an assistant ready and prepared to guide the cable. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK . The motor will run, winding the cable onto the spool and drawing the antenna down into the mount.
  3. If the cable does not wind, twist the cable at the top of the housing; the part at the bottom may have turned while being pushed down the hole.
  4. Once wound onto the spool, install the antenna nut even if the antenna is not fully retracted. Test the antenna elevation and retraction; the mast will eventually retract fully.
Hope helped with this (remember rated this post).

96 Jaguar xj6 Electrical Issues


I forgot to mention about the locks. Mine does the same thing...jumps three times. This is an indicator that one of the locks on the circuit is not functioning properly. Mine happens to be the right front but it could be any door including the boot lid.

The antenna could be a burnt motor; however, my 1987 XJ6 had the same issue. One day it came up just a bit and I was able to slowly coax it fully out. After I got it out, I took some olive oil and lubricated it just a bit--not a heavy lubrication--and it worked well after that although it would still sometimes stick.

1991 jaguar xj6 RADIO couldn't turn ON! The radio can't turn its power on by the switch, the security indicator keeps flashing all the time no matter the switch is "ON" or "OFF". the fuses are good and the relays that I COULD find (in the trunk for the antenna) are good as well. I have power GOING to the radio from all indications but it doesn't come on or flash CODE for me to enter, which I do have. Is there something I'm missing or is the radio just shot? Also I found no fuse on the radio it's self. Is there some SIMPLE fix out there? Or should I START SHOPPING?
Thanks.
