That's because the mechanism on the inside of the electric antenna in detached from the actual antenna and will run till it manages to read that it has gone down . simple solution is to cap off one of the power wires so it stops as it will need to be replaced to work again any way, the only wire you need to leave is the antenna wire in the middle (or the biggest one there) and it will still work as you do not need a power supply to run the antenna.

Why wont my S82 rider stop when I push in clutch

If it's cable actuated clutch, the cable may have snapped, which is also indicated by the clutch pedal dropping to the floor or becomes lighter to press. Check at the transmission bell housing, the clutch lever may have been broken or bent. If it uses hydraulic system, the slave pump may have been dislocated, at the transmission side.

The only reason to have an electrical wire going to the antenna is for a motor that raises and lowers the antenna. The antenna cable to the radio is the only wire on the antenna.
To replace the antenna, you have to remove it from where it connects onto the car, then lift it out from there. The antenna and the cable cannot be separated, it's all one piece. You pull the cable off of the back of radio, and tie a strong string onto it, because when you lift out the antenna, the cable will be pulled out from under the dash and to wherever the antenna is situated and out that hole. Now tie the string onto (hope you had a long string, lol) the end of the cable on your new antenna and cable, and stick the end of the cable into the antenna mounting hole. Pull the string from under the dash by the radio and you will bring the cable back into the dash and where you can plug it into the old radio and listen to good old music again !

The antena won't go down when car is off and the

a plastic tape runs the ant. up and down via a motor that sits behind the carpet in your trunk. the tape is broke or in a bind. most cases in broke. if you want to fix it short of buying a new/used ant. assm. pull back carpet and while ant is in the up position disconnect the motor wire so it doesnt run constant. it wont go down when car is off but the motor wont run either. but those are your two choices.

1999 Mazda 626 antenna won't go down, hums.

Spray the antenna with a spray lubricant (WD40) or similar. and let it sit for an hour.

Then start the car and see what happens.

The antenna is probably full of filth or corrosion..

If that doesn't work take the side cover off the trunk on the side where the antenna is and you will find a plug in electrical connector near the motor that winds the antenna up and down, pull that plug out and the antenna will stop trying to wind itself down..

The antenna goes up/ dowm really slow and then continues to click when it is all the way down

when the antenna winds all the way up grab it and try and pull it up as far as you can get a bit of oil/grease or lubricant and run it along the antenna to help it run smoothly, this wont fix your problem but it will reduce the amount of clicks it does and may help realign the antenna as the clicks are the motor still trying to pull it down because it thinks its still up. the antennas do this because they may have a kink or bend in it, most cases you need to replace the antenna, can get one for under $50 get a generic one as its cheaper and does the same thing.

Replace antenna on 2003 mr2 spyder

my antenna just stopped working in my MR2 2003 Spider. The motor still runs but the antenna will not go up and down. It made a weird noise and I had to pull the top of the antenna up to stop the motor from sounding loud.

Should I replace this or can you disconnect it and push the antenna up and down?
