Roof not working on my escort soft top

Hi i was wondering if anyone could help i have just bought a r reg escort convertable and the power hood was working fine but the radio was not working neither was the little set of lights on the roll bar thing above your head, i had a play with the fuses and found the radio one was missing, i put the fuse back in and the radio came on and the lights are now working, i did not think nothing abnormal about this but hen i went to show a friend today the poer hood working nothing happened the only thing i have done is put a fuse in the radio fuse holder, do you think this could be something which has caused the problem with the roof i have tryed removing every fuse now and put them all back but still nothing i have left the the radio fuse out now but still the roof does not work do you have any ideas what might have happened please any sugestions would be great, or do i have to get an auto spark in to fix it, thanks for you time all the best adam.

If you hear the motor then you can almost certainly rule out electrical issues, it souonds more likely that the roof panel or drive mechanism is jammed or stuck, If the roof is closed then push up on the rear of the sunroof and see if it "pops up" a bit then while still pushing up hit the button to open.If it is anywhere in between open and closed try pushing it open or pulling it closed while you are pushing the button,if it moves inspect the tracks and lubricate

Go to this website:
http://www.genuineservice.com/genuineservice/en/default?page=genuineService

Pick owner guides from the left task bar.
Input your behicle info then pick get owner guide.
Pick owner guide 1st printing and then go to page 138. This is where your fuse infomation begins.
Maybe this will help you find out if the fuses are in the correct places. You have 2 fuses boxes on this vehicle. One is in the side of the dash on the driver's side and one under the hood.
There are 2 fuses for the turn signals and both are located in the interior fuse panel. They are no. 10(7.5 amp) and no. 21(15amp)

The top on you car is not completely folded back, once the roof appears to be seated keep holding the open button until you hear another click, If this doesn't work it means the roof parked sensor is not working which unfortunately will mean a trip to the dealer.

Hi I have the same problem on my 1999 Carrea, I had the windows at the rear stuck down and the roof latch keeps open and closing, I have not solved this yet it could be a relay but it all started when I was opening and closing on the keypad, if you get the roof up and cant get the rear windows to close get the roof closed to a locking position and where the hood lock pulls back at the roof lock station slide a thin s crew driver up the side of the lock hook they close then, also a tip, if you stick your little finger in the hole where the hood lock goes and press both the rear window buttons up they close when the roof is down. if anyone knows why my hood wont lock please let me know

Convertible top rattles and pops.


the adjustments can be a bit tricky but there are a couple of things you can try.....lube all the seals around the soft top and between the windows ,a light smear of vaseline can get rid of some creaks and groans.also there are 2 metal pegs where the roof locates on to top of the screen if you can find some pipe that will slide over them cut it to about 5-10mm so most of the peg is still exposed, and slide it on this tensions the roof a little and can work wonders.hope this helps.

Yes make sure you use a black window sealant around the seal to prevent leaking, and mak sure not to tighten the bolts to tight as it can bend the frame.....

The problem is that your roof(SOFT TOP) lid isnt closing properly. If you open the roof lid you see there is a button on one of the latches that tells the car that the roof is securely closed if your roof lid is not secure the trunk wont open. To test this press down on the roof lid and the try to open the trunk.
