Hi folks! My '98 Riviera has the automatic radio antenna that the last 1 1/2" sticks up after shutoff. Isn't it supposed to go all the way down? And so, how do I fix it? It also only goes up about a foot and a half upon turning the radio on. Ha, but what do I know, I just got the car a few days ago. wink It ain't broke. Just thought maybe ....

Try cleaning it. If you are familiar with power antennas, you could disassemble it, clean it, lube it and reassemble and then it should work fine.

Just disconnect it, it outdates the car.

if you have the OE antenna, you can get a replacement shaft from rockauto.com, Delco # 88891023 . HOWEVER, probably the most cost effective thing to do is get a working power antenna from a junkyard, for instance moradpartscompany.com -- a bunch of 90s and 00s GM cars with those antennas are in yards, they are not hard to get nor very pricey. Dependig on the yard and the car I am thinking $10 to $30.
