    My arial keeps going down by itself. Hold the up button until a light click sound. Then down she goes at some time.:b:
    Replaced the control unit with the other car - no change.
    Put the arial in the other car. Other car has problem.
    Anyone had this problem before?

    If its not the aerial module, then its an aftermarket aerial.

    Aeropro aerials etc. often do this and from Brand new. I had my genuine aerial replaced cause the motor was gone, and I have the same problem.

    If it bothers you, just skip the module. Wire the aerial straight to the cd player, then when you listen to the radio, it will go up...when you listen to cd's or turn the radio off, the aerial will go down.

    Did this happen after putting in a CD Player? What happens if you hold the up button, does it stay up. If it does slip in a 5c in there to keep it up.

    lol ummm... Isnt that a little overboard? Having to replace the fuse all the time? Much easier to just remove the aerial module and connect the wires straight to the aerial so it goes up when the radio is on, down when the radio is off...
