2002 Rx300 Antenna

Recommended Posts

Hi, i just purchased a 2002 RX300, great car, awesome condition, trying to figure out the operation of the radio/antenna. The reception is poor since the antenna is down. is there a button that i dont know about that activates the antenna or turning the radio on makes it go up or is it just not working ? otherwise a very excellent quality car. I made the upgrade from a Camry, what a difference !!!!

It's supposed to go up when you turn the radio ON. Do you hear any grinding a few seconds after you turn the radio ON?

The motor's probably broken either way.

On the RX 300 models the extension piece that actually raises the antenna breaks after time. It is a cheap part and can be replaced easily by removing the rear interior quarter panel covering, along with the antenna securing thing on the exterior.

If you can hear the motor running when you turn on the radio, it is the extension piece. If not its likely the motor.
