Hey all.... haven't been thru here for a while.....
Well, my power antenna on my '99 T/A busted. Think the cold might have had
something to do with it.... shouldn't have parked it outside at my 1st ex's
house all night....
As it sits now, in the garage, the antenna is almost completely up. I can push
down the very top
section with no resistance. The rest of the antenna won't push down easily. I
did work the antenna
back down once with the radio off. The motor suddenly came alive and sucked it
down the last 2 or 3
inches. Radio on; antenna came back up nearly all the way but didn't even
twitch when the radio was
turned off after that. Motor 'works' but doesn't seem to pull/push the antenna
Haven't pulled the antenna yet and I'm not real sure as to the internals on the
unit. From looking
around, I'm assuming the antenna mast has a flexible 'tape' that the motor winds
and unwinds on a
spool to push or pull the mast. It would be nice to just replace the mast/tape
assuming that is
what's buggered up. This place has one;
Presumably I will pull the system and open it up first to see if that is the
only part busted.
Anyone have any better experience with these?
