2000 toyota 4runner antenna problem

My 2000 4runner is having the problem of the antenna not going down when the radio is turned off. it is making the sound like the motor is trying to pull it down, but it won't. i have to manually push it down. the sound lasts about 10 seconds or so then goes away. it also makes the sound when it goes up and lasts for about the same time. is this something that i can do myself or easier to take it in somewhere? if so........could someone explain it step by step in a way to understand? thank you very much.

SOURCE: Antenna will not retract.

The most likely cause is your antennae mast is broken or has stripped its teeth. The mast is sold separately and contains the snake-like gear. The motor must be removed through the right inner fender well. You may have to open up the gear in the motor to get out the broken piece of the snake-like gear,

SOURCE: antenna will not go up and down, making loud noise

Yes the motor can be unplugged, the plastic gears in those motors have a tendency to wear out.

SOURCE: The radio antenna does not fully extend or

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 ...

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. ...

Clock doesn't work. I put in an after market radio


Check your instrument panel fuses. #18 AC it controls your clock, antenna, radio, and power rear view mirror. If the fuse is OK then it is most likely an internal failure in the clock. I offer an affordable repair service and have the removal instructions. Check out

Replacing radio power mast on 2002 toyota 4runner


Sometimes you can put the new antenna cord in the motor, even with the old piece in there, and not have a problem. But, if it makes noise, the fender well needs to be pulled back, and the antenna motor removed enough to pull the back plate off,and remove the rest of the plastic cord. I have done MANY MANY of these. Its easy, some plastic clips, 1 10mm bolt, and some phillips screws.

Radio just didn't go on...


On a 2000 4Runner, there are two fuses that control the radio. They are:
15 amp ACC
and
15 amp DOME
If both fuses are good, you have an internal issue in the radio assembly.
The graciousness of a FixYa rating would be greatly appreciated.
