Hi

Got a problem with power antenna on a ef fairmont

When you have the radio on the antenna only goes up half way and when you push switch it still doesn't go up further.

What the antenna goes up you hear the bcm relay click when it's working but pushing height switch it still doesn't go up fully. Would height switch or bcm be cause or likely antenna itself

Also have a problem with rear demister why wouldn't it work would it be switch or bcm

Simplest and most likely cause - the switch might be unplugged.

The default for the antenna if 1/2 up.

If no power was getting to the antenna, it wouldn't raise at all.

Is the antenna geniune?

As Snap has said, check the switch as it may be unplugged or faulty.

It's fixed now all that was wrong was that the 2 plugs were plugged into the opposite switches so swapped them around and it's all fixed
