Answers :

Look by the hood hinge I think the wires with a plug come through there. you are looking for three wires plug. should be green, white, and grey. find it and unplug it.
\015\012If you dont find it there you will probably have to pull the inner fender down.
\015\012You can buy just the tip of the ant. with the nylon "noodle" (thats what I call it) aand repaired it by taking it apart and remove the broken nylon "noodle" , reassembling it and feeding a new noodle into the ant as you have somone turn the radio off.
There should be a wire connector, either on the antenna motor it's self or in the wires close to it.

The antenna stop working and now the car won't start once it's turned off. the fuse for the radio had to be taken out a few months back because the car wouldn't start. now the motor for the antenna keeps running after the car is shut off and that causes a drain on the electrical system. how can i get to the motor? do i have to take the right end fender off just to get to it since that's where the antenna is located?

Does the 1996 Achieva have a fuel pump relay and a fuel pump fuse, and if there is a fuse can anyone tell me where to find it. We are trying to test the fuel pressure, we disconnected the relay and started the car so to run it out of gas in the lines but the thing is the car runs for another 30 mins. This is how the book says to get the pressure out of the lines but for some reason I don't think it should run that long if the pump is not pumping. We know we have the right relay cause when it is


Releaving the pressure does not mean run all the fuel out of the lines. Thats actually a bad idea. All you need to do is remove the gas cap. Hook up your guage. Turn the key to the on position wait for the fuel pump to cycle. Turn the key off. Press ... 1996 Oldsmobile Achieva

2003 saab conv,what does the second maxi fuse do next to the battery. it is drawing current when the car is shut off. it is also drawing current and killing the battery. also the battery is not getting charged but the alternator was taken off and checked it is putting out 13.5 volts. when this fuse is taken out the ignition system does not work. we have a new battery in the car 12.55v. when the car is running the battery reads 12.25v. i think the problem may go beyond the fuse but i do not know
