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.

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.

Where was the antenna located in the 1953 Corvette?

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.

Where is the radio antenna located on a 2006 Ford Fusion?

on the 2006 models of the ford fusion. the radio antenna is embedded in the back glass with the rear defrosters. It's important to know that when installing aftermarket radio you should connect pin 5 on the radio harness to a switched 12v source. If not done this will cause problems with radio reception! pin 5 is the antenna's booster power wire and was originally powered off of the stock radio but the aftermarket radios do no supply this power source. I reccommend using a relay and the remote antenna wire and 12v constant wires off the new radio harness to make this connection! this will allow the the remote wire to switch the relay on and off when the radio powers on, and connect the the tapped 12v constant wire to the antenna booster power! thats how i would do it!
