Hi Scott,

	When this happened to me the fuse under the rear seat had blown. I
replaced it, but the antenna is still stuck up; the rear speakers work again,
and I never noticed about the ".0" thing. The rear amp is controlled by this
fuse and the controls for the antenna are in the rear amp. module...I think?



P.S. Does the hum change with the rear defroster?
