1992 Buick Century limited 3.3 from North America
Good car. Help me with antenna please
I noticed that some one had a comment about their radio antenna. 1992 Buick Century.
"Radio Antenna will not go up or down, stays running constantly. I have to pull the fuse to turn it off."
I have the same problem. The plastic cord that pushes and pulls the antenna pulls and down has now broken. This doesn't allow the limit switch for the full up, or the full down, to engage. Therefore the power antenna runs forever and kills the battery. The antenna is located in the front fender and is pain in the you know what to get at. Is there a way to kill power to the antenna with out getting to the antenna motor itself? Keep in mind that the power to this motor is not only powered by the radio, but by the ignition also. I understand that there might be a solenoid. Where ' exactly ' is that located? Also, If I simply unplug the radio, would that have any effect?
Been good except this radio antenna thing.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have the same problem; it also affects the horn and the radio. We can't use the horn and therefore we will have a problem getting an inspection sticker. Looks like we will have to take off the fender.

My mother and grandmother had the same problem with the antenna motor running non stop.
When the antenna was full extended in the up position, I pulled back the carpet over the kick panel in front of the passenger side front door to access the wire harness for the antenna and I cut the power wire to the antenna motor on the antenna's wires itself, as opposed to the harness which plugs into it.

The horn isn’t needed as part of an inspection. I’ve been through emissions tests in 3 different states and never had to use the horn as part of that. They only care if your check engine light is on.
