Re: Power Antenna

I, too, have had some problems with the OEM power antenna on my '86 
4000csq. What I've found is some erosion of the contacts on the relays. 
Simply disassemble, use a fine emory cloth or contact file, bend the 
frames slightly to bring the contacts to the almost touching point, and 
your antenna most probably will work fine.
