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.

The radio antenna does not fully extend or contract when radio turned on/off. I can hear the little motor humming away, but I need to manually pull the antenna up or push it down to stop the motor. ...


This is a shot in the dark ... spray your antenna with some cleaner or lubricant product. WD-40 comes to mind though this is not a true lubricant. Put a rag at the base of the antenna to keep the spray off the finish of your Toyota.

I hope this works for you ...

Antenna will not go up or down?


Check the connection to the power antenna. If it has power, the motor is shot. If no power, check the fuses...

Common problem. Salvage Yard would be your best bet as a new one is pricey.

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.

Power antenna motor will not shut off


I assume that the power antenna unit is an original equipment unit, if so.
1. Does it run for about a minute then stop? If this is the case, your antenna shaft needs to be replaced. This is a very simple procedure that your local radio install shop can do for you in about 20 minutes.
2. If the motor never shuts off as long as the key is on, you probably have a defective relay on the antenna motor. At this point you need to replace the entire unit. A job that can be a bit pricey because of the price of the unit itself. A cheeper fix is to replace the power antenna with a manually telescopic unit, (no motor), or a fixed unit, (doesn't go down). If you opt for the latter, remember to unscrew or lower the antenna in automatic car washes!

Antenna mast broken


    Give these instructions a shot. Might be too generic but might be enough to get you going. Removing Original Antenna
  1. Step 1 Activate the antenna switch to the up position.
  2. Step 2 Using the wrench or needle-nose pliers, loosen and remove the original retaining nut on the base of the antenna mast.
  3. Step 3 Gain access to the underside of the area where the antenna is located.
  4. Step 4 Remove the bracket or brace that is below the hole and holding the antenna in place.
  5. Step 5 Remove the mast.
  6. Step 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. Step 7 Remove the ground lead from the panel.
  8. Step 8 Pull out the antenna coaxial cable.
  9. Step 9 Unplug the coaxial from the extension coaxial cable.
  10. Step 10 Remove the original antenna coaxial cable. Note the route the cable follows.
    Installing the New Power Antenna
  11. Step 1 Inspect the fender area where the antenna mast will be mounted for rust.
  12. Step 2 Clean the area before installing the new antenna.
  13. Step 3 Plug the new antenna coaxial cable to the extension coaxial cable. (On some General Motors and Ford cars you may need an adapter to mate the 2 cables together. Car audio retail stores sell such an adapter.)
  14. Step 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.
  15. Step 5 Connect the power lead of the antenna to the power antenna lead on the radio.
  16. Step 6 Connect the 12-volt constant lead to the antenna to a 12-volt source or to the ignition switch.
  17. Step 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.
  18. Step 8 Ground the ground lead from the motor to a clean metal surface on the metal panel near the mount.
  19. Step 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.
  20. Step 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.
  21. Step 11 Stop the motor after the cable goes into the housing 12 to 25 inches.
  22. Step 12 Secure the bracket or strap to the bottom of the antenna mast and to the metal fender.
  23. Step 13 Replace the retainer nut to the base of the antenna mast and secure tightly.
  24. Step 14 Replace the panel that covers the antenna mount area.

'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.
