SOURCE: replace antenna on 2003 mr2 spyder

my antenna just stopped working in my MR2 2003 Spider. The motor still runs but the antenna will not go up and down. It made a weird noise and I had to pull the top of the antenna up to stop the motor from sounding loud.

Should I replace this or can you disconnect it and push the antenna up and down?

Thanks

SOURCE: 2003 MR2 will not idle

I had the same problem. My check engine light was on. Took it to the dealer and they checked the code. It was the throttle control motor failure. The good news is I got the wiring wet and that seem to be the problem. They reset the check engine light and it runs fine now. Bad news is if I had to get the motor replaced they said it would be about $1300.00 I hope things work out for you.

SOURCE: 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.

Power antenna keeps running in down position on 1987 Buick Grand National. Is there a fuse I can pull as opposedto disconnecting the battery


Its most likely running because of a broken mast cable.
The ACC fuse powers the antenna. But it also powers the interior lights, door locks, etc..
May just want to go under the dash and find the connector and unplug it.
If you go for an aftermarket replacement mast, not all work.
The cable on that is most likely a smooth cabel with a J hook at the end. Most the aftermarkets have teeth and no hook.
Napa auto parts sells replacements that may work. When the antenna mast did the very same thing on my 89 Camaro I got a replacement from Corvette Central. Pricey for just a top section of the mast but just about all I could find.
Aftermarket antennas are fairly cheap and can work.

Cruise control in my 2003 mr2 spyder suddenly went out


check the fuse for the cruise control from the driver side located on the left side of the dashborad. Make sure the fuse is not blown out.
If it bad, change it out but make sure it is the same rated fuse.

Good luck

Mr2 transmission


use only OEM Toyota trans fluid. If there is one lesson I learned with my MR2, its that Toyotas own trans fluid is the best. Yes, its a few dollars more, use it anyway.

As for your top, there is a product called Amazing Roll off. Its for boat canvases and its simply the best thing i've ever used. try it, you wont be disappointed.

MR2 after 2 mins of starting the smt light comes on.


it sounds like the clutch actuator is worn out.
The clutch actuator has 2 parts:
1. the clutch master cylinder
2. the clutch slave cylinder.

Try to replace the slave cylinder first, and if it is still not solving the problem, then try to replace the clutch master cylinder

Good Luck

Antenna for 1997 jaguar xk8


There is a mast available, part number is lnc4134aa or lna4134aa, sorry but I am on holiday and dont recall the correct number.
You may have to remove the antenna and take it apart to retrieve the broken piece of mast, all basic stuff, really eaasy to do.

You can buy the mast aftermarket and on ebay for $25-$35, of pay the dealer $60+ for the same unit.
