    In regard to the Blackwood power tonneau cover!
    I'm NOT assuming any wiring problem as it worked just fine while in storage, which has been since late August 2008!
    What points are the correct one (to apply 12 volts) to test for an opening status??

    Thank you in advance!

  • jdloh Feb 26, 2009

    Where is the 12 volt D.C. motor located?
    Is it necessary to have the tonneau cover open manually to access this motor etc. EXPLAIN!!


    Thanks Ocean's

If the motor was OK before, that is unlikey the problem. Try opening and closing the power tonneau manually, follow instructions below:

"To open the cover Manually:
If an electrical or battery failure
happens, your vehicle is equipped
with a manual release lever that can
open the tonneau cover.
1. To open, locate the manual
release lever under the right front
corner of the pickup box.
2. Using the ignition key unlock the
cover and pull the lever down to
manually open the tonneau cover.
3. Push the tonneau cover up for
access to the pickup box.
4. To close, push the tonneau cover
down on the pickup box until it
latches."

yes its necessary.read the instructions.
Normal Operation
The tonneau cover switch sends a ground signal to the tonneau cover module through circuits 1628 (WH/RD) to open and 1629 (PK/LG) /1631 (PK) to close. The tonneau cover module then checks these inputs for these conditions:

  • cargo door ajar switches, circuit 1351 (TN) and circuit 1630 (BN/YE) indicate the doors are closed.
  • pinch strip circuit 1626 (LG/RD) is not active.
  • vehicle is in PARK or NEUTRAL.
  • VSS circuit 679 (GY/BK) indicates the vehicle is not moving.
The tonneau cover module will then apply power and ground to the appropriate tonneau cover motor circuits and tonneau cover motor clutch circuits. The tonneau cover module then checks input from the tonneau cover sense circuits, 1617 (WH/LG) and circuit 1618 (WH/BK) to verify the motor is operating in the correct direction and to detect obstacles.
Possible Causes
  • tonneau cover control switch circuits 1628 (WH/RD), 1629 (PK/LG) and 1631 (PK) open or shorted to ground
  • left tonneau cover motor circuits 1600 (TN/RD), 1602 (WH/OG), 1609 (LG/YE), 1610 (WH/LB) 1615 (WH/YE), 1616 (OG/LG), 1617 (WH/LG) and 1618 (WH/BK) open, short to ground or short to voltage
  • right tonneau cover motor circuits 1599 (TN/LB), 1601 (WH/PK), 1607 (PK/LG) and 1608 (OG/LB) open, short to ground or short to voltage
  • circuit 679 (GY/BK) open, short to ground or short to voltage
  • circuit 1626 (LG/RD) open, short to ground or short to voltage
  • circuit 1627 (BK/OG) open
  • circuit 1598 (RD) open
  • tonneau cover switches
  • tonneau cover motors
  • tonneau cover module
  • tonneau cover pinch switches
  • tonneau cover lock out switch
There is a lengthy pinpoint test associated with the failure. It does somewhat require the use of a scan tool capable of communicating with the module.
A toolbox with a built-in-roll-top tonneau cover for installation within an open cargo bed of a pickup truck. The toolbox in one configuration is a rectangular shaped tool-box having in combination a cigarette lighter adaptor and a roll top tonneau cover. The roll-top cover is rotatably mounted and secured within a concealed rear portion of the tool box. A special lock mechanism secures the cover to the tailgate in an extended state which protects concealed items from theft and weather. The roll top tonneau is uniquely formed by a plurality of successive and interconnected slats via a reinforced rubber connecter assembly. Each of the plurality of slats is attached to a first and second, respective adjoining edge by a successive or adjacent slat. The adjoining edges are formed of a first and second tapered channel for fictionally securing the reinforced rubber connector assembly therebetween. In another arrangement each adjoining edge includes an extension edge portion and a mating recessed edge portion for successive connection with an adjacent slat as a reinforced connection. A set U-shaped guides are mounted on the top edges of the side walls of the cargo bed and extend from the front portion of the cargo bed for providing virtually friction free contact therebetween. The roll-top tonneau cover is activated via a spring-loaded rotating shaft which assists in returning the cover to a retracted position.

Can you test the unit yourself by giving it the voltage it requires to function and see if it opens? if it works when you give it power, then theres a problem with the wireing between it and the source, would suggest to follow the wireing and see whats wrong. Long but sure fire way of fixing it.

    Would suggest to first if possibly disconnect the device from the battery first, then find the + an - on the motor, and check its voltage rating, it should read on it, most are 12volts. and give it a go.

The most likely cause of this is sticking brushes in the DC electric drive motor, if u can reach the motor tap on the bottom and if the brushes are sticking it will most likely start working, if not check to see it has 12 volts at the motor connector and a good ground, if that's ok then the motor is going to have to be replaced, based on 30 years of repair experience this is the most common issues for this kink of problem.

07 corvette top will retract but deck lid makes no effort to close, then top will not go back up. Need to release pressure in block lift top up about 1/4 of way then top will go back up


Manually Moving the Folding Top from the Down Position
Important: Allow the system a minimum of four minutes to bleed down pressure after the last cycle.
Manually release the folding top cover latch using the emergency release cable.
Raise the folding top stowage cover.
Manually raise the folding top, holding the 5 bow up.
Manually lower and latch the folding top stowage cover.
Manually unfold the top and latch per normal procedure.

Manually Moving the Folding Top from the Up Position
Important: Allow the system a minimum of four minutes to bleed down pressure after the last cycle.
Manually release header latch per normal operation.
Manually lift front of roof off of the header and raise the #5 bow at the same time.
Manually release the Folding Top Cover latch using the emergency release cable.
Fold the roof down into the well.
Manually close and latch the folding top stowage cover.

Power Folding Top System Components
The power folding top system consists of the following components:
• Folding top control (FTC) module
• Body control module (BCM)
• Folding top control switch
• Serial data communication
• Folding top cover latch actuator
• Folding top cover pull down actuator
• Folding top pump motor with valve manifold
• Position switches and limit switches:
- Pin receiver switch
- Luggage barrier switch
- Folding top cover open switch
- Top open switch
- Top closed switch
- 5 bow raised switch
- 5 bow lowered switch
• Tonneau release relay
• TONNEAU PULL DOWN ACTUATOR Fuse 20 A
• TONNEAU RELEASE Fuse 10 A
• BATT 2 Fuse 40 A
• REAR FOG/ALDL TOP SW Fuse 10 A
• Folding top mechanical components:
- Folding top
- Folding top cover
- Folding top valve 1
- Folding top valve 2
- Folding top valve 3
- Hydraulic lines and cylinders

Folding Top Cover Latch Actuator
The power folding top system includes a folding top cover that is powered open and close by a hydraulic system that is controlled by the FTC module. A power unlatch motor is used to unlatch the folding top cover before the folding top control (FTC) module powers the top cover open. The folding top cover unlatching is requested by the FTC module via class 2 message, but is executed by the body control module (BCM). When requested, the BCM applies battery voltage through the folding top cover release relay control circuit to the tonneau release relay. The relay is energized and battery voltage is applied through the folding top cover release control circuit to the latch actuator. The actuator is energized and the latch releases the folding top cover.

The electronics on this are very complex ,

System Operation
Before any movement of the power folding top is allowed, the folding top control (FTC) module must be aware of the following conditions:
• Unlatch the header. The FTC module reads the pin receiver switch is Inactive.
• The windows must be normalized. Refer to Power Window Reinitialization.
• The ignition must be placed in Accessory or RUN.
• The transmission must be placed in PARK, or with manual transmission, the park brake must be applied.
• Trunk status must not be ajar.
• The luggage barrier must be in place.
• The pump motor temperature must be within the operating range.

After the last cycle of power folding top operation, allow the hydraulic system a minimum of 4 minutes to bleed down before attempting manual operation of the top.
Your best bet take and have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .
DTC B3666 Rear Tonneau Position Error
DTC B3667 Tonneau Release Circuit
DTC B1011
DTC B1291

Why won't passneger seat move


If the seat is electric, you may have blown a fuse or switch - or worse yet, burnt the motor. The easiest way to check really is not easy without the proper tester ( they run about $100.00 or so). Check the fuse panel under the dash and under the hood, looking for burnt fuses. Use the panel cover for the location of the proper fuse. If neither is the problem, then you'll need to buy that high dollar tester ( it will have a red cable and a black cable coming out of it as well as a switch to activate).
This is not a beginner level job - getting professional help will keep you from ruining something vital - or burning up your car!!
Hope this helps!!

Your not doing that yourself

You better study the engine design

Either motor would take a professional a complete

My toneau cover on my lincoln blackwood won't stay closed.


Hello, If you are talking about a hard cover, what you need to do is open the tailgate and look at the underside of the cover. You should see some contact pads on top of threaded shafts. These contact pads need to be adjusted to allow for the locking mechanism to work.

The lid must go down far enough for the lock cables(rods) to expand and secure the lid. You may need some Torx or Allen-headed sockets to turn the parts. With the tailgate open, you can see what needs to be done. You might want to check any Bed mounts you can see as they may have loosened up.

The side locks of the Bed require just the right amount of length in the Horizontal lock rods. If they are too long, you will never get the lid open with the handle once you close it. I hope my Solution is very helpful to you.

What fuse controls window operation in 1999 lincoln continental


The fuse must be in the main fuse box. The position and function of the fuses is normally marked on the inside of the fuse box cover and also in the owner's handbook. If you don't come right with these, work your way through the fuses looking for a blown one. To ease your search the window fuse it should be around 30 amps.

I have a 2002 lincoln blackwood and the brakelights aren't working. i checked the fuses and all of them are working and none of the lights are blown.


It's likely the brakelight switch which would be located above the brake pedal. May be loose, have a loose / corroded connection or it may have burned contacts.

More info, let me know.

Lincoln blackwood climate control


have had my drive seat fixed 3 times and is being repair as we speak for the fourth. Passenger side I had repaired once and it is out now also. I love my Navie, but the seat accessories are junk. I too, have a 2000. If you can bear with me for about a week, I will know why these are not working and will be able to follow up with you about yours first hand instead of guessing. Fair enough?
