Question about 1993 Mercedes-Benz E-Class
The automatic antenna does not rise on my 1993 300E (2.8) when the radio is turned on. Checked the fuse, which is o.k.
I disagree with Duane. What you need to do is turn on the ignition and power up the radio. If you hear the motor trying to work, you can try giving gentle assistance to the antenna as it may need cleaning/greasing. Turn the radio back off. You can have someone help you or you can hit ON and quickly step out and gently try to assist the antenna up. If it goes up, it probably needs to be cleaned and greased. This happened on my 300E before.
If you hear NOTHING from the antenna motor, you may need to check the cable that connects to the motor. It might be loose. If you can verify that power is reaching the motor and you are getting no result, then the motor may be burned out. But check all of the alternatives first as replacing the motor itself is much more expensive than the cables and such.

This can go each of the ways previously mentioned. There is also one more issue to look at other than power to the unit or mast broken. There is a control board either in or on the unit then over time corrodes due to moisture. Try going to a junkyard if the other answers dont work and get a new control board and replace.

The motor is bad, need a new one. Probably in the winter it broke, trying to force the gears as it tried to break ice and snow.
