I've noticed recently that my power antenna (not working) all the sudden went down the other day....Hmmmm. Why would it go down but not up? The back ground is I re-built the actual antenna gearbox and shaft and tested it on the a battery and it works..so I plugged it in NOTHING! But now it will go down. Short? This is exciting maybe I CAN get this thing working after all! Any experience on this would be helpful. Some more back ground is I have a after market Blaupunkt Key Largo DM2000 stereo and I don't know if it has auto down when off.

Do you have the antenna up/down dash switch? if so did it's setting get changed? I put a Blaupunkt Key West in my 87, and the antenna still functions fully as it should, up with radio on, down with radio off, partly or fully extended deepending on switch setting. Choice of radio is probably not the problem. recheck your connections, look for corrosion on the wiring terminals in the trunk.

Is there a connection under the pass floor mat? Yes there is a switch but as far as I know it doesn't seem to work.
