Question about 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Open Question

Power Antenna not extending and retracting..

My radio Antenna on my UK 1998 Grand Cherokee is only partially working. It will partially extend on power on but as it doesn't go all the way up, the radio doesn't pick up a signal. If I manually pull the antenna up the signal works but the antenna doesn't stay extended on it's own and will drop while driving. Likewise, when I switch off it doesn't retract (not so concerned about that).
Any suggestions and help would be very much appreciated.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Antenna motor runs after car is shut off, without retracting the antenna. I have to disconnect my battery to stop it

Relay #27 in the box under the hood runs only the power antenna on a 1992. For the future here's the parts guide for everything in your jeep. Page 180 has a picture of what you want to pull.

Radio antenna is making a grinding noise


The antenna cable/regulator is usually made out of plastic with tiny slots that engage the antenna motor gear. When worn, they make grinding noises and usually don't retract or extend all the way. There is no quick fix for this; replace the antenna assembly.

The radio on my 2004 Tiburon gets only static on every station, however the CD player works perfectly fine. Solutions?


if it has a built into the window antenna, install a real one on the fender. if it has an antenna which retracts and extends automatically, replace it with a real one. if it has a good antenna, make sure it is actually plugged into the back of the radio.

Coil broken off in antenna motor assembly. How do


You don't. Go to a salvage yard and buy a used antenna unit and replace the entire assembly.

Or, to save money, take a pliers and extend the antenna out. It won't retract, but you can still enjoy your radio.
