Power antenna motor gone? kaputz? finished?
#1303054 - 08/18/06 03:04 PM

Well I just replace dthe power antenna a few months ago and it was working fine until I came home on night and it went down for hte last time. The antenna won't move up and is stuck in the down position. I started noticing it when my radio would cut out on stations that I wouldn't hear static on. I checked and when turning on the deck, the antenna motor doesn't make the sound of it moving up and down? I've searched in the forums, but I was wondering if I can fix this problem by taking apart the motor or re lubing something? I tried lubricating the antenna but I think the motor is gone? What should I do to easily and cheaply fix this problem? BTW when I Was at the yard recently, all the Mystique LS's were gone so junk yard antenna motor is probably out of the question for now. TIA CEG
