Q: Power antenna not working

The problem is most likely the motor for the power antenna. Motors wear out over time (28 years) and will eventually stop working. I would first check the fuse to see if it is blown, if so the antenna motor is drawing too many amps, which blows the fuse. The high amp draw could be due to the antenna being in a bind, or the windings within the motor. Replace the fuse and see if the antenna begins working. If not the motor will need to be replaced.
