    Ariel motor

    Im havin a strange problem. The car could be turned off for the guts of an hour and all locked up and out of no where the motor for the radio ariel will start making a clicking noise as if the ariel is trying to come up. The ariel works properly and goes up an down as i turn the radio on and off. Ive checked the wires and ther doesnt seem to be any obvious damage. Any body got any ideas would be much appreciated.

    After a certain length of time they give bother as water gets in to the unit . Unless there’s another power source it shouldn’t go up . Is it a stand alone unit in the boot passengers side

    It runs down the aerial into the box and the little green control panel gets wet
