The antenna cable/regulator is usually made out of plastic with tiny slots that engage the antenna motor gear. When worn, they make grinding noises and usually don't retract or extend all the way. There is no quick fix for this; replace the antenna assembly.

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.

Fix A Honda Accord Antenna


Anyone that has owned an older Honda Accord (1990-1998 or so) has probably had a problem with their radio antenna. My problem was actually there when I bought the car. Whenever I would turn the car off the antenna would retract and when it was all the way in it would make this horrible grinding/clicking noise. Eventually it stopped working all together. As I was looking into this problem I found out that it was a very common problem, but one that had a very easy solution. I would say that almost anyone could preform this antenna fix. If you are having the same problems here is how to fix it:<br>
1) Get a replacement antenna mast. You can find them on Ebay for around $15.

2) Remove the old mast by taking off the chrome nut that hold the antenna onto your fender. You might need a small hammer and a punch to get it off. It should be fairly tight. <br>
3) Pull out the old mast. You have to give it a good tug as the end is in there tight. Check to see if it is all there. If some of it is still stuck in the antenna motor you might need to take it apart to get it all out.<br>
4) Turn the radio on then put the new mast into the hole for the antenna with the teeth facing the rear of the car. Push it as far as it will stopping when it won't go in anymore. You don't want to force it.<br>
5) Have a friend turn off the antenna while you guide the new mast in. If it doesn't go quite in all the way that is fine, it will eventually.<br>
6) Re-install the holding nut. <br>
That's all it takes. You can now enjoy your radio again!

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.
