Buick riviera power antenna no go up. where is the relay? fuse checks ok for radio. any other checks you recomend?

Check all the fuses there as an issue with 80's GM vehicles where things were fed by two circuits. It's a 20 amp fuse, I just cant remember what circuit it is. Check all the yellow ones.

How do I access the fuel sending unit on my 85 riviera

In order to access the sending unit the fuel tank will need to come out.
  1. Remove the negative cable from the battery and have a Class B fire extinguisher near the work area.
  2. Use a hand operated pump when possible, to drain as much fuel through the filler tube as possible.
  3. If a hand-operated pump device cannot be used, or to complete the draining process, use a siphon at the main (not return) fuel pipe at the fuel pump or the fuel tank gauge sender unit.
  4. Undo the fill and vent hoses that are accessible support the fuel tank, undo the tank straps and carefully lower the tank undoing the wire harnesses and any remaining hoses as you do.
  5. Once out, remove the sender retainer ring using a brass punch (no sparks) by tapping it counterclockwise.
  6. Reverse procedure to reinstall.
