Most likely if your antenna will not come up on your 1986 Corvette, it is probably due to a technically issue , such as the stereo is wired wrong. Or it could just be that it is stuck down from sticky goo. It could also just be broke in general.

How do you repair a 1982 Corvette power antenna if the motor doesn't work but when taken off and tested will raise to the up position but not go down?

The unit seems to be broken, it's just a nylon cord that forces the antenna up, then it pulls the ant. down once the signal is lost. The nylon cord came a loose from the tip of the antenna, which is not repairable. By a new one.

How do you get the power antenna down on a 1979 Corvette can hear a click in the back when you turn on the radio is that an antenna relay?

95 % of the time the nylon cord that moves the antenna up and down gets stripped. The power antenna motor is going to cost about $200.00. The antenna mast is about $40.00 which comes as part of the nylon cord. The motor that drives the antenna must bestill working. The procedure to fix takes about 15 minutes. Remove the nut that secures the antenna and slowly pull the antenna out od the socket. Take the new antenna with the nylon leadand feed it into the socket hole. You can then secure the antenna in place with the holding nut.

When you key up your mic the red antenna light does NOT come on as soon as you talk it does Why?

Some transmission modes send no power to the antenna if you are not speaking. If the antenna light is sensing radio frequency energy, it will come on only when you speak. This applies to single sideband (SSB). AM and FM transmitters send power to the antenna all the time.
