Make sure the broken mast is in the same state as the replacement mast (most likely fully retracted). There will probably be two connections on the unit, motor power and radio signal. Examine the latches on the motor power connector to see how the work; most likely you have to squeeze in a pair of plastic tabs while pulling on the connector (don't pull on the wires!) in order to unlock the connector.

Check the gasket around the antenna base. If it is hardened, and the replacement antenna does not have a good gasket with it, apply an automotive-grade body sealant or caulk to keep water from getting into the car body. (Many of those I've seen use a rubber base without a separate gasket; often this is hardened and will not seal without help once it's been removed.)

If the radio cable has a screw-on connector, put it on snugly finger tight. Cranking it on with a wrench may break the terminal inside (I've seen a number of TV tuners destroyed this way). However, most car antenna connections I've seen resemble over-sized phono plugs and jacks - push on and pull off. Often there is a protective sleeve or boot over the connector; you may have to pull it back along the cable first. Again, pull on the connector, not the cable. If that doesn't work, it may be a bayonet-style connector that you have to push in and rotate a quarter-turn counter-clockwise, then pull it off (I don't recall ever seeing that on an antenna, but it's mechanically possible).

problem is in the hydraulic clutch system
low fluid indicates a leak at the slave cylinder and not holding pressure indicates a leak at the slave cylinder or in the clutch master cylinder
If the master cylinder and slave cylinder have not been replace in side 5 years ago , the have them replace by a specialist brake and clutch shop
at this point there is nothing wrong with the clutch proper

Sounds like a bad wheel hub. Or it could be just the brakes. Can you tell which corner it is coming from? Can you jack up that corner and spin the wheel? Wheel hub job about $400 brakes about $200 or less. Good luck

If it's fuse 36, it should have a 15 amp fuse.
Do not confuse this fuse with the radio backup fuse, which is 7.5 amps but runs a lot of other circuits.
Put in a 15 amp fuse.
If it burns, the lighter may have a short.
See diagrams at link below.

could be the head gasket has gone take out spark plugs and check there condition and look for water in the piston, water and fuel dont burn well. as you have done an oil change it may have gotten into the oil but its harder to tell with new oil, as water will sit on the top of the oil.

Try to jump start the car.
Put the jump leads on and leave it for 10 mins
that will charge the battery up
then try and start.
Also check the starter motor.

Doesn't matter if you're looking up at the petcock or down at it, it turns counterclockwise. You have to visualize looking straight on to the petcock as it fits into the radiator, and rotate the petcock counterclockwise relative to the stationary radiator.

Try cleaning all battery terminal connections. A little corrosion can prevent it from working properly. Probably need to take the clamps off the post and wipe it out/off, the rub it with some fine sand paper. All connections should be good, clean metal to metal. If there is rust, sand it down where the metal parts touch so it's clean. Sounds like a battery connection issue since it seems to run fine once started. Had a similar issue with an older nissan I had. Battery post corrosion was keeping the power from getting to the starter.

It is a known problem and the ignition switch was part of a recall. Lots of information here and a few fixes. Look at the video tab as well.

You have two problem. The heating and defrost if the blower won't come on problem most likely is either blower motor or control panel. The door locks problem is with the electronic locking system. For some reason the system is getting the unlock command. Try deactaviting the auto lock. Could also be the unlock button on key fob is stuck
