There seems to be an intermittent electrical failure on the wiring from the radio to the power antenna.
Is this power antenna the original one?

Power antenna broke and I need to replace it. How


Buy replacement antenna mast. Remove old one by unscrewing the retaining cap nut. Turn on the radio & let the antenna cable run all the way up while you pull on it to remove it.
Install the new antenna mast by turning the radio 'off' so the spool inside goes back to its beginning while you feed the cable of the new antenna down into the antenna mast hole.
Once the cable is all the way down, reinstall the retaining nut/cap and turn on the radio to allow the spool to run the antenna 'UP.'... cycle the radio ON and then OFF several times allowing the antenna to move all the way up and all the way down.
That's it!

Temperature display "read out" led display + radio antenna


the gears in your antenna mask are plastic sometimes they get stripped. you can take the antenna out through your trunk. I got the part at the toyota dealer. Sometimes it is easier to ask one of the mechanics to put it in for you.
