Question about 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
The car's antenna doesn't retract when the car is off. More of a problem: the antenna makes a whirring noise even when the keys are not in the ignition.
I stopped it myself! just turn off radio and remove the key. Then go to the trunk and remove the cover to the rt. rear of the trunk where the motor is. Then pull the large black wire from the antenna. It just pulls out like a speaker wire but it's larger.It's located at the top of the motor. Be sure to push the antenna all the way back down and then wait a couple of minutes before you plug the connector back in. That stopped it for now but I'm not sure if it would do it again when I turn the radio back on. It's very dark outside and I will try it in the morning.It seems that everything is like a computer and requires a disconnect 1st. and then a reconnect for anything to work now days!!

The antenna is wired to go down when the key is turned off. The motor is probably stripped out. You need to replace the motor at the base of the antenna, or unplug the bad one to make it quit running with the key off
