My buddy and I both have 1994 SL's (500 & 600).
Interesting to see the problems we have in common.
Latest problem is our antennas.

Both slowly started to intermitently malfunction (not go up). No antenna up = no radio, CD, WB. No antenna motor sound and tried all variations of phone powering up and down with no luck. Most likely issue appears to be antenna not receiving signal to engage.

Any thoughts or experiences on...
1) problem
2) replacement/alternative (other than 600-700 options)

Thanks :)

Sl Antenna

I also experienced a similar problem with my '94. I simply "helped" it extend and then wiped it down with WD40. The rag I used was rather dirty after, so I assumed it was just dirty. I did this about 2 years ago, and haven't had a problem since. (Although it does appear to be getting a little slow again.)
