glass fuse./antenna.

Well, the power antenna was broken off from my car and I replaced it with a manual antenna, now I just tied the wires that were going to the power antenna around the emmission canister. Should I just completely get rid of them or am I risking more severe electrical damage having them loose?
On another note, I accidently blew a fuse, I'm guessing it's a radio since my stereo won't turn on. I blew it because I accidently touched a part of the ignition with my screwdriver. I found out that I have glass fuses mixed in with the other fuse's that normally come with the 944. Should I replace those glass fuses' with the ones that should be there or is it really not a problem? Thanks in advance.

Where is the power antenna? I could never find mine. I think mine broke off too.

Cooler - your antenna is in the windshield.

your antenna in the winshield is powered as well........

it should have a little wire with the antenna plug.

That needs power to get proper reception.........
