I DO NOT HAVE A OLDSMOBILE CUTLASS AUTOMOBILE. I HAVE THE BUICK REVIERA '95. I HAVEN'T TRIED IT YET BUT I DID POST THAT I WAS ABLE TO STOP THE MOTOR FROM CONTINUOUS RUNNING BY PULLING THE MAIN BLACK WIRE FROM THE TOP OF THE MOTOR BOX IN THE TRUNK. I DIDN'T NOTICE THE POSTING I PLACED ON YOUR SITE FOR THAT FIX.

The gears on the automatic antenna are stripped so when I turn the car off the antenna motor runs non-stop trying to lower the antenna. How do I disconnect the motor?


If i remember correctly this cars ant is located on the pass/side fender, the best way without trying to pull the fuse because then you will loose other systems, look under the passenger side part of the dash, you will need to remove the cover if its still there, most older cars are missing this cover, there are a few screws holding the cover remove them and drop and pull cover out, next look under the dash you will see wires coming from the fender area towards the radio there are green and theres a plug there, look close to the right and just unplug the connector, have the key on so you can here when the ant motor stops running and this will take care of that problem. good day.

The motor of the power antenna runs continuously weather the car is running or not causing the battery to die. I simply would like to cut a wire to the motor to stop it from accessing any power. What wire...


theres no need to cut the wires, look under the pass/side dash you may have to drop a cover to see, look next to heater box you will see green and black wires follow to the connector, the connector is black just unplug it, the motor will stop if it doesnt then you unplugged wrong wire connection,hope this helps,

1993 Buick Lesabre ...........antenna won't stop running and it's draining the battery.....can't find another motor assembly


For now would unplug it till you are able to find one.Sometimes all it is just the cable in the antenna mast that breaks and just may only require a new antenna to be installed and not the complete motor.

1993 T100--Unplug antenna motor


Find access to where the antenna motor is, and visually inspect/trace what kind of electrical connection there is going to it. It may be a simple unplugging of two connectors. I am suspecting that the antenna motor and the radio share the same fuse, as the power from the radio passes thru to the antenna motor when the radio gets turned on. So, can't just pull the fuse. But if there is a fuse JUST for the antenna, then pull it out.

Antenna motor running. Antenna remains up even after engine is turned off. 1991 buick lesabre


Unplug relay at the bottom of antenna to stop the motor. Leave antenna up and keep on driving or replace antenna to watch it go up and down.

The motor wont stop running to the radio antenna


Unplug the relay at the bottom of the antenna. The antenna mast cable has broken. Leave it part of the way up with relay unpluged or replace the whole antenna.

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 doesn't retract when car is off


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

Antenna motor runs while the radio is on or off. The antenna is stuck in the extended position. When the car is shut off the antenna motor continues to run to retract the antenna, but it doesn't go


You need to pull the fuse for the antenna or just unplug it. It has a fairly ridgid plastic wire that pushes the antenna up and down. Works fine until the wire breaks then it rolls up (antenna down) but it never increases resistance because the antenna never comes down , it's like a fishing reel when the lure breaks off, so the motor thinks that the antenna is still coming down and it will run and run and run trying to do it's job. Your lucky it stuck up and not down. If you want your antenna to go up and down again you'll have to buy and install a new one.
