Hello, you need a new mast installed in your antenna, or a new whole unit.
If you open the trunk and on the right side by the ant. pull the mat down a little. You should now see the ant. About halfway up you will see some wires. If you disconnect either one of them your ant will quit running. The are plugged into the relay, so is is best to unplug the car harness side, if possible, but it does not matter which you do.

Power antenna motor won't stop running. Do you know where the cutout switch is located?


There is no switch. When the plastic gears inside the power antenna strip out they continue to run because the limiter switch inside the unit never gets tripped. If you can assist the antenna up when it's running, leave it up and disconnect the power to the motor. If i remember correctly the antenna is mounted on the passenger rear quarter panel. You should be able to pull some of the truck trim out a little and disconnect the two or three wire connector.

My 1984 cadi eldorado keeps dying or losing power when I first start it up. It does not die when I am driving it. I have just replaced the fuel pump and thought that it would end the problem. Is there...


I have an eldorado 1984 barritz 4.1 engine. I am no mechanic but had a similar problem and it ended up being the main head gasket bolts were loose out of spec causing loss of compression and water and oil mix. I did the work myself but it was a fight. the car runs strong and with alot of power.

Power antenna motor will not shut off


I assume that the power antenna unit is an original equipment unit, if so.
1. Does it run for about a minute then stop? If this is the case, your antenna shaft needs to be replaced. This is a very simple procedure that your local radio install shop can do for you in about 20 minutes.
2. If the motor never shuts off as long as the key is on, you probably have a defective relay on the antenna motor. At this point you need to replace the entire unit. A job that can be a bit pricey because of the price of the unit itself. A cheeper fix is to replace the power antenna with a manually telescopic unit, (no motor), or a fixed unit, (doesn't go down). If you opt for the latter, remember to unscrew or lower the antenna in automatic car washes!

Antenna motor runs while the radio is on or off. The antenna is stuck in the extended position. When the car is shut off the antenna motor continues to run to retract the antenna, but it doesn't go


You need to pull the fuse for the antenna or just unplug it. It has a fairly ridgid plastic wire that pushes the antenna up and down. Works fine until the wire breaks then it rolls up (antenna down) but it never increases resistance because the antenna never comes down , it's like a fishing reel when the lure breaks off, so the motor thinks that the antenna is still coming down and it will run and run and run trying to do it's job. Your lucky it stuck up and not down. If you want your antenna to go up and down again you'll have to buy and install a new one.

Power antenna motor runs, but antenna doesn't


Fault in the retractor assy. Is the mast bent. If it is gently try to straighten best possible lube with silicone spray. With someone turn off the radio , try manually putting antenna down with the palm of your hand squezzed around mast and forcing. Do the same going up, pull by the end tip ,

Power antenna wont go down


The flex drive cord that raises the antenna mast and lowers it is most likely broken, you can replace just the mast and drive cord.
