Power antenna keeps running in down position on 1987 Buick Grand National. Is there a fuse I can pull as opposedto disconnecting the battery


Its most likely running because of a broken mast cable.
The ACC fuse powers the antenna. But it also powers the interior lights, door locks, etc..
May just want to go under the dash and find the connector and unplug it.
If you go for an aftermarket replacement mast, not all work.
The cable on that is most likely a smooth cabel with a J hook at the end. Most the aftermarkets have teeth and no hook.
Napa auto parts sells replacements that may work. When the antenna mast did the very same thing on my 89 Camaro I got a replacement from Corvette Central. Pricey for just a top section of the mast but just about all I could find.
Aftermarket antennas are fairly cheap and can work.

Need to know how to remove a regular antenna from a 1996 Toyota Tacoma. It is not a power antenna.


Toyota Pick-ups/Land Cruiser/4Runner 1989-1996
Antenna - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

If your antenna mast is the type where you can unscrew the mast from the fender, simply do so with a pair of pliers. Most damaged antennas are simply the result of a truck wash or similar mishap, in which the mast is bent.

Manual Antenna
  1. Disconnect the antenna cable at the radio by pulling it straight out of the set. Depending on access, this may require loosening the radio and pulling it out of the dash.
  2. Working under the instrument panel, disengage the cable from its retainers.
On some models, it may be necessary to remove the instrument panel pad to get at the cable.
  1. Outside, unsnap the cap from the antenna base.
  2. Remove the screw(s) and lift off the antenna, pulling the cable with it, carefully.
To install:
  1. When reinstalling, make certain the antenna mount area is clean and free of rust and dirt. The antenna must make a proper ground contact through its base to work properly.
  2. Install the screws and route the cable into the cab. Make certain the cable is retained in the clips, etc.
  3. Connect the cable to the radio; reinstall the radio if it was removed.

Power Antenna Mast
The power antenna system contains a relay. If the power antenna is inoperative, the relay is the first place to look. The actual motor rarely fails.
The power antenna mast is replaceable on the Pick-Up and 4Runners. If the mast is damaged or broken, proceed as follows:
  1. Perform this repair with the battery cables connected. Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position.
  2. Remove the antenna nut.
  3. If equipped with a CD player, press the AM and FM buttons on the receiver and simultaneously turn the ignition switch to ACC .
  4. For non-CD player units, press the AM button and simultaneously turn the ignition switch to ACC .
  5. The antenna motor will run, unwinding the mast from the spool. have an assistant guide the mast so it doesn't fall and damage the bodywork. When fully extended, the mast will be released. Remove it, and leave the ignition in the ACC position.
To install:
  1. Insert the new cable so that the teeth face the rear of the vehicle. Feed the cable into the motor until the cable reaches the bottom, about 12 in. (30cm).
  2. Have an assistant ready and prepared to guide the cable. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK . The motor will run, winding the cable onto the spool and drawing the antenna down into the mount.
  3. If the cable does not wind, twist the cable at the top of the housing; the part at the bottom may have turned while being pushed down the hole.
  4. Once wound onto the spool, install the antenna nut even if the antenna is not fully retracted. Test the antenna elevation and retraction; the mast will eventually retract fully.
Hope helped with this (remember rated this post).

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?

Thanks

Installation of vt holden commodore aerial rope and mast


You access the ariel via the left hand wheel arch.
1. Remove left wheel mud guard. It is held in with a bunch of press studs which can be difficult to remove. I found pulling on the plastic mud guard whilst turning the screw helped.
2. unbolt the electric ariel assembly. There is an earth strap that needs to be unscrewed as well.
You should be able to get the ariel out far enough to work on it.
3. Remove chrome plated nut to top end of mast tube.
4. With great anger and force, remove the dead ariel and drive cable from the mast.
It's difficult to get the mast to work unless it's earthed properly.
5. Get you hand inside the wall and remove the ariel face plate. Swear if you have to.
6. Put the ariel mast assembly back into the wall and hook it all up minus the new ariel.
7. Switch your radio on, then put the new ariel into the mast. Gears facing the rear of the car. Switch the radio off, it should retract. If not you may need to push it in a little further.
8. Remove the ariel mast again and slip the chrome nut to top end of mast tube and tighten securely.
9. Ask the spouse to close up whilst you have a beer.
