there may be a TSB (technical service bulletin) or recall on this very problem....let me check~

every body wants money to "check", these things are supposed to be free common knowledge...I don't believe that you have to take the fender off, but use a fish wire if you are able to find the other side easily~

Yes you can power it down. It should work like a power window motor where you switch polarity to the motor.


This is a 3 year old post but others may find it looking for the same answer. Here is the schematic .....first find the 3 wire cable going to the antenna (very easy if your antenna in on the rear) by putting 12v to two wires, it will go UP or Down depending on where you put the power.

    The power antenna intermittently raises or fails to raise. It sometimes raises when I drive over potholes, sometimes when I turn on the radio, but only when it feels like it.
