The motor sounds like it's working, so I'd say the nylon strip that helps raise the antenna mast is broken. These can be removed and replaced, but requires you to remove the inner liner in the truck to access the motor. The nylon strip with the teeth on them comes part of the new antenna mast. If you want to try replacing it yourself, we can help you a little further.

If I am interested in repairing this myself as I am having a similar problem, what would you recommend?
