1999 Toyota Celica GT Convertible - Top not working

The Toyota Celica Convertibles were made into convertibles by a company in America - the owners manual is no help. I checked all the fuses to no avail, but am not sure if it would be a regular 20A type fuse in the fuse box would be the answer....... Any ideas? It was working fine when I put the top up a month or so ago - any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    I have yet to tackle my top project. If you can hit up Toyota Ed, see above (he may not see this posting), he would likely know and be able to send you the .pdf file of the manual to show you the location. If you do get that, please forward on to me. I am getting close to start tackling my top not working. Thanks and hope this helps. Jon

    Be sure to check the "bypass" switch in the trunk........I missed this switch which is marked with "MANUAL" on it. It must have gotten bumped by something in the trunk. Hope this helps. This bypass switch is located in the upper left (facing the trunk) behind the liner and connected to the cross bar by a zip tie.

    The retract motors are powered by the 10 amp GAUGE and the 30 amp DOOR fuses. There is also a relay, which may be labeled as "Top Stack". If you send provide your e-mail address, I can send you a .pdf with all of the wiring shown. Please advise.

Power windows will not work on 1989 Toyota Celica convertable

How do you know it is a fuse or a relay? It could be a broken wire. It could be a faulty master switch....It could be a LOT of things....

The power window circuits need to be properly diagnosed to determine the cause of the problem.

With that said, the ONLY relay related to your power window circuits is the "auto-down" relay, which is an integral part of the driver's master switch assembly - you cannot replace it without replacing the entire switch.

There is no fuse for the power window circuits on your 1989 Toyota Celica...I guess that explains WHY you cannot find it. Your power window circuits are protected by a 30 Amp, self-resetting circuit breaker located in Junction Block #1 (in the left kick panel).

Where is the head light fuse for 01 celica

This will probably be a "maxi-fuse" in the underhood fuse holder(an owners manual or service manual can tell you for sure),but many cars have the fuse identity in the cover.

Go to for some sections of the factory repair manual. I have not seen the owner's manual posted online anywhere as of yet. You can ask one of the owners if they will post it for you.
