    Either the motor's shot or the stiff wire that's inside the antenna (it pushes it up and pulls it down) has snapped.

    i think it might be broken cuz when the radio is turned on/off, you can hear the motor go like its putting the antenan up/down, except the antenna doesnt move .

    also..... lookin on ebay and that are the replacement antennas the entire piece including the part that extends outside the car or do you just replace the motor and all that inside the car???

    I would wait for warmer weather and see if it still does it. If it does then just replace it.
