Some times you can get a new antenna to go into the old motor if it is still trying to operate. You can install a new unit in the pass. wheel well and rewire it to the radio.More expensive.

How do you replace radio antanna


What kind of car is it? If it is a fixed antenna you just unscrew the old one and screw on the new one. If it is an automatic antenna, you can buy either the motor or the mast. Assuming you just need to replace the mast, it comes with the plastic piece with the teeth on it. You need to remove the old broken plastic piece from the antenna motor. You might need to disassemble the antenna motor from the car to get enough of the plastic to grab onto with pliers. While you are pulling on it have someone turn on the radio to activate the antenna up motion and pull the old plastic piece completely out. With the old plastic runner out, the motor installed on the car, and the radio on, run the new plastic runner first through the doughnut screw that holds the mast to the car. Then cram the new plastic runner as far as you can into the hole that leads to the antenna motor. Then hold the very end of the mast (the tip), align the base to the opening as best you can and have someone turn off the radio to activate the down antenna motion. It goes quick so don't have your fingers where they can get pinched as the motor sucks in the plastic and the mast down into the hole. With the mast retracted, tighten the doughnut screw to that the mast won't flop out when you turn the radio back on.

The antenna on my 94 Cutlass Supreme no longer goes down. I can hear the motor on it buzzing as I turn off the car. Radio still works fine. How expensive to have this fixed?


Hello: You will have to replace the antenna, The dealer antenna will be approx 200.00 installed. You could also get a mast antenna for alot less. In the mean time you need to unplug the antenna so it doesn't run the battery down.

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!

'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.

Temperature display "read out" led display + radio antenna


the gears in your antenna mask are plastic sometimes they get stripped. you can take the antenna out through your trunk. I got the part at the toyota dealer. Sometimes it is easier to ask one of the mechanics to put it in for you.
