1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Engine Size unknown Wheel Drive Type unknown Automatic 66000 miles
I have a 1989 Cutlass Ciera, and just yesterday the antenna stopped working. See, the antenna has, up until this point, retracted into the car whenever I turned off the radio or turned the car itself off.
Now, if I turn off the radio or turn the car off, the antenna will not go down, but instead make a grinding, straining noise, like the antennae is trying to retract, but can't. I've tried pushing it down, to see if it was just stuck, but that didn't work.
Even when the car is off, the motor responsible for bringing the antenna down is running, and won't retract the antenna.
I was able to fix the problem by pulling the fuse from the fusebox that runs this whole thing, but when I do that, many of my lights and interior functions stop working as well.
I have been trying to locate the wire that goes to the antenna, so I can just cut it, and then the antenna will remain up all the time, but have not been able to. Anything you guys know about this will help me a lot. Thanks!
have the same problem?
