My 1996 Chevy Caprice Antenna will not turn off and is just making a clicking sound. HELP!!


It is broken - the antenna is designed to either open or close and then turn off. The turn off circuit is not being activated and you hear the motor and the clicking clutch assembly.

Usually only works when the ignition is on so it will not drain your battery but the noise is annoying.

Antenna relay switch


is it original antenna and radio? the antenna runs on a seperate switch oor goes up and down with radio on and off switch? if it is original stereo that is original chances are the antenna is broken and stuck in up position the mast may be purchased at dealership but motor may also be no good or not far behind. Listen at antenna for motor noise when radio is turned off if you hear the motor the plasic that drives it inside is broken.

My heater fan is turning on and off, and it sounds horrible when it does work. Is it the resistor pack? I only ask because of the noises.


It is not probably the resistor pack, because that only is in circuit at lower speeds, and would not cause noise.
If there is not something in the fan, like leaves, then it is probably the fan motor bearing.
If you can get at it, you could try lubricating it. Thin sprays get in better, but don't last as long.
Heavy grease is best.

1993 T100--Unplug antenna motor


Find access to where the antenna motor is, and visually inspect/trace what kind of electrical connection there is going to it. It may be a simple unplugging of two connectors. I am suspecting that the antenna motor and the radio share the same fuse, as the power from the radio passes thru to the antenna motor when the radio gets turned on. So, can't just pull the fuse. But if there is a fuse JUST for the antenna, then pull it out.

91 Olds electric antenna does not work; noise continues after shu


The drive cable in your power antenna is broken. You should be able to unplug the motor or cut the ground wire. The motor is on the bottom of your antenna, under the fender.

96 Nissan Maxima Radio Antenna


The gears are going out in the motor. If the antenna goes up and down, then the gears have corrosion. If it does not move....then the gears are toasted or the antenna cable inside the housing is broken.
