why, the power is not that bad...H*** mine lasted 13 years, no reason for me to get a non power one
I went through the original one and a replacement in four years.

That was enough for me.

Both broke the nylon cord inside it.

If you want to go brand new Metra, sells new power antennas.
Metra as in Metra Kits & wire harness for aftermarket radios.
I don't know how good the quality or waranty is for there antennas, but there kits & harness for installing aftermarket radios are favorite among electronic installers.
Here is there site:
http://www.metraonline.com/anatomy.php?sec=antenna
You can't buy directly but they have a link for finding a representative (stereo shop etc.)
I'm thinking of getting one myself, I already replaced the original with one from the scraper and its not much better.
When I last checked the price direct from authorized distributor I think cost was $80 Canadian.
Nice ride by the way looks the exact same as my 92.

Mine just went bad today. It worked the 1st time I went out, but the 2nd time it didnt. I looked at the fuses but there wasnt anything about the power antenna. Also my power trunk release doesnt work either. I just used that today before I went out. But my keyless remote trunk release works. I hope I'm not stealing your thread 93SSE. Just figured I wouldnt start a new one.

Check the valet lock (it'* a rocker switch to the left of the trunk latch) before going any further. It'* easy to move the switch putting in groceries or whatever.and setting it causes just the problems you're describing.

Well I got my antenna fixed for the time being...hopefully for good. I got in there and wiggled the bottom part of the antenna motor and it started working.
