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.

Begin by removing the decorative radio cover from your 1981 Chevy Corvette radio. Remove the radio retaining screws. Slide the radio out and remove the wiring harness and the antenna cable.

Remove the front cover of your 1979 Chevy Corvette radio. Remove the radio retaining screws. Slide the radio out. Remove the wiring harness and the antenna cable from the back of the radio. Reverse the process to install the new radio.

With your radio in the On position, turn your ignition 1 click to engage the power antenna. Then gently pull out old antenna as it raises. Feed in new antenna while your assistant turns the radio to the Off position. the motor will naturally pull in the new antenna...or go to the carwash and convince them their mechanised mildew-removing mmaham are the guilty party, and they owe $35 for a new antenna.

There is no button for the power antenna it works by it self if you turn on the ignition and your radio is on the antenna should come up by it self, if problem doesent go away it could be that ur radio isent hooked up to the antenna (yellow wire) or your power antenna blew.

The options for car radio antennas include internal car antennas, external car antennas, power antennas, and satellite antennas. The internal antenna is the least effective and most cars come with either the external fixed antenna or the power antenna unless their is a satellite radio in the car and then it is a satellite antenna.

Yes there is a fuse. Determining which fuse protects the antenna motor may require some detective work. It may be the radio fuse, or it may be a separate fuse, perhaps shared with the rear-window defroster grid.

Should be the same fuse as the radio

The antenna relay is on the power antenna itself(in the trunk.) a wire goes from the radio harness to tell the antenna there is power to the stereo and then the antenna goes up when it gets that signal(just by the 12volts going to the relay.)

it gets its power from radio so its on the radio fuse but if the radio is working its not the fuse my advice is go buy an antenna that's not powered just make sure it has several mounting pads

Radio antenna can be translated as: Funkantenne Radionantenne

I don't believe there is a relay. When you turn on the power to your radio the antenna should go up and down when you turn off the power. If the antenna is not doing just that, then the antenna motor is bad.

By removing the spare tire, moving the air compressor out of the way, then removing the plastic cover above the Radio Module. The X5 antenna connection is on the radio module. You will see 2 connections- the bigger one is the antenna that gives you signal. The smaller connection is a 12v cable that provides power to the antenna amp.

Bad antenna? Radio needs to be trimmed Bad antenna? Radio needs to be trimmed

It is on the same circuit as the interior light. 7.5 amp fuse. This is the always powered line to the antenna. There is also a power wire from your radio which makes it go up and down when the radio is turned on and off.

The antenna was located in the trunk. The antenna consists of a wire mesh screen fiber-glassed into the interior lining of the trunk lid. Because fiberglass is electrically inert, this solution provided a way of concealing the antenna without creating radio interference. It worked quite well and provided good reception on the signal seeking AM Radio. Although the radio was listed as a $145.15 option is was installed on all of the 300 Corvettes built and sold that year.

The radio antenna converts electromagnetic radiation to electrical energy

User Avatar

no. first check fuses. check ground. check for voltage to memory, and switched power to radio. the only time the antenna would affect the radio in that manner is if the ground was connected to the antenna.

A receiving antenna does "re-radiate" some of the power it receives, but not all. Some of the power it receives proceeds into the receiver ... which is the only way we detect the signal being received by the antenna.

Nothing, it blows out power grids and any kind of radio/TV/etc. connected to an antenna.

Could be broke, or might just be a Hyundai radio. Check antenna, and cable from antenna to radio.

To connect the radio antenna on a 1993 Ford F-150, the back of the radio needs to be exposed under the dash. Plug the radio antenna wire into the back of the radio and tighten the nut.

The antenna is located on the sledding hill, hidden on the pole thing. Click the center where it moves out alittle bit and then your phone will turn green. Click the phone and play the minigame. This is how u beat the mission.
