'98 Taurus Power Antenna MotorOn my '98 Taurus SE, the antenna motor is near the rear fender on the driver's side. Remove the trunk liner and you find all sorts of things. I think the motor is or is inside the black box between a brace and the quarter panel.

It is also possible to find a replacement mast. I found a source on eBay and paid about $15 for just the mast / nylon drive part.

In my case, the repair did require the antenna be opened up (2 mounting bolts, and 4 small cover screws), but many times the mast can be repaired just from the outside.

Try a search on "Taurus antenna mast repair" - that should get you started.

take it to the Ford dealership

u can disconeect power from antenna at the back of the radio. the electric motor has a stripped gear on it. a replacement is not expensive, but you can remove antenna assembly and replace with a normal antenna in the same place

Where is radio antenna plug on 1996-2005 Ford Taurus - Mercury Sable?

I have a '99 Taurus. There doesn't seem to be an antenna plug near the dash. The only one I have found is near the antenna itself in the left rear fender well. you will have to go buy a antenna adapter... its a long wire that will plug into the back of the anatenna and then run it through you back seat and then under your bottom trim to the center control center if you have any Q's email me at i just put a new CD player in my 1998 Ford Taurus and i have a lot of good tips for people I'm not sure about the Taurus wagon, but I had to replace the antenna on a Mercury Sable wagon. The radio module is located in the left rear trunk space behind the wall trim. You will have to remove the module to replace the antenna wire. Hope this helps.
