Has anyone experienced an issue with the power antenna on their Sequoia freezing in cold temps? On mine, for many years now, the antenna will not raise up in cold temps (@ or below freezing). Sometimes it will move a few inches and stop. Once the temp warms up it works just fine.

What could be causing this and does anyone have a suggestion for a fix? Seems like it may just need some sort of internal service. I'd prefer not to have to replace the whole thing.

Thanks

Bump for some help.
I don't have an answer, but my '04 does the same thing.
Got me spooked because I also have a '96 4Runner that had the antenna slow until it just stopped working. Cost of replacement was somewhat prohibitive considering how much radio sucks, so it pretty much XM only for me now in the 4Runner.

Wd-40 two to three times a year. I see Toyotas all the time with antenna's half way down. Just take a rag and spray a generous about on antenna while hold rag underneath. Then turn radio on and off several times to work wd-40 in the sleeves good. Here in Colorado these thing get all the road grime in them and they start acting up. This method has worked great on both of my Toyota's. Good Luck!
