Power antenna sensor wire???. I have a 1985 c4 when I got the car the antenna was stuck in the up position. Today I tried to put a new antenna in and turned the radio on to have the antenna keep running in the up position until the ribbon broke. Plus if you turn off the radio the antenna wont come back down. I am thinking maybe there are some crossed wires behind the radio,or is there a sensor that tells the antenna when to stop and when to go back down. Any help would be very appreciated. Thanks.

Sounds as if the new antenna was defective,also with the ribbon broken the antenna will not retract as far as I remember. I have had to replace 3 antennas on my 85(not the fault of equiptment,can't seem to remember not to turn stereo on while still under my lift) But have never had one that kept running after reaching full up position,which is why I'm leaning to defective antenna. Where did the new one come from>
