Aerial Does Not Work 1995 SL 500

It worked just fine last night; this morning the radio aerial does not go up. As a result, can't listen to AM or FM.

Is this a fuse, a bad connection of just a burned-out motor?

Turn the radio on and listen to the antenna motor. It will be obvious if it's a broken gear or mast/whip (both of which can be replaced). If you hear nothing then it may be a fuse or electronic malfunction.

Thanks. Would it go so fast - working one moment and not eight hours later?

No noise at all. I'll check the fuse.
