old post. what year. easy fix for any mech. 1: fuse blown. 2: brake switch bad, 3: wires bad. 4: PO (previous crazy owner) hacked in trailer wiring, and now its all shorted out or he cut the wires, and uses useless wire nuts. that are all corroded now , and useless. 5: collision damage never corrected.
first try it with one new light on each side , only 1, not 2 lamps can short easy (over twisting) $1 for 2 new lamps, try that too.
You can always close the top by pulling it up by hand. It pulls hard but you can pull it up and it might require two peaple, and then latch it down. Fuses fail to connect in the fuse panel and the switchs fail as do the motor in the pump that makes the top move. Your right also that if the car doesn't sense that the e= brake isn't on or the is'nt moving it'll not work the top either. Many fuses have to be good for all the systems that interlock the top to work the most common fuse to blow is the cigar lighter fuse as peaple plug in things that short out oftern.
Hi Gil.Please locate the fuse box in your car that contains the fuses related to these accessories, eg convertible, CD player, lighter, door locks/windows etc.The location of the fuse box would be in the user manual provided with your car.If you donot have a user manual then it should be in under the hood or the dashboard ( behind the glove compartment ).See if the fuse relating to the convertible is OK.If its bad then replace it with a fuse of the same value.If the other fuse too goes bad then you probably have jammed motor of the convertible which is putting extra stress on the fuse, or that your wiring gets short somewhere when you press the button for the convertible to work.If you want to test the switch then simply pull the connectors of the switch from its behind and touch them with eachother if the convertible then works then the switch is bad.Regards.
Check your manual for the location of the top fuse.
Your car left the factory as a hardtop and was converted to a soft top by a Chrysler authorized company so the top fuse(s) may not be with the other fuses.
drivers kick panel shows a convertible top fuse , #4 15amp fuse .now i see something in the schematics called TOP STACK , googled it and it refers to a convertible top , wierd , but anyway , it shows a top stack switch , a top stack main relay and a top stack fuse and a top stack relay . if you have the same manual , work with me , does your motor that powers the top have a blue/red and a blue/yellow wires to it , and the switch does it have a blue/red , a blue and a black wire ? do you see in your manual a top stack fuse r/b #3 ?
If there is no brake lite switch on the arm of the brake pedal then look to see if there are two wires hanging down with a plug on them, as perhaps the previous owner removed the brake lite switch with the intentions of replacing it and just never got around to it.
