Hello, a ctually the module and the antenna are kind of one in the same and same location, The module? It s enses when full down or up and does in fact cutoff the antenna,Right front inner fender, I have not been able to locate factory repair information for the antenna but Both are located close to each other, The issue is most likely the module and not the motor
I was having to work off a wiring diagram schematic for the module location, I am sorry in that it is not a clear as it should be, May be best I opt out and open the post to the other experts and one should be along soon to continue helping, I am sorry I could not, Just not enough repair information on my end to assist with more details back to you
Does the antenna motor keep running when the antenna goes all the way up?And does it bring the antenna all the way down when the radio or key is turned off?
The problem is the antenna mast which has a plastic cable like a zipper that runs off the motor which has a gear on it to run the antenna up and down. You will have to replace the antenna mast, but first, you will have to remove the antenna assembly which includes the motor, and take the cover off the motor and remove the broken off bottom half of the plastic cable. Then reinstall the antenna assembly back under the fender and leave the cap off. You will need an assistant to turn the radio or key on and off to pull the cable into the motor. Below are the directions to do this.
The Power Antenna Modules senses the radio turning on either by the button on the radio or the ignition turning on and it directs power to the antenna motor to either raise or lower the antenna.
Your very welcome,
