SOURCE: 2000 chrysler sebring convertable top will go down but will not

Typically, when when this happens, the system is low on fluid and/or must be bled. Here are the procedures:
Lower the top to the full down position.

  1. Remove the rear seat cushion, seat back and inner quarter trim panels. Pull up sharply on the seat cushion at the front about midway between the middle of the seat and the outside edges. The seat back is held in by nuts. The quarter trim panels are held in by screws I think.
  2. Remove the cylinder mounting brackets and remove the cylinders from the trunnion pivot mounts.
  3. Rotate the cylinders 180 degrees (the hose fittings will now face to front of the vehicle.
  4. Disconnect the motor/pump retaining clips from the body.
  5. Rotate and raise the motor/pump assembly so the reservoir is in the up position. The rubber filler plug will be at the top.
  6. Raise motor/pump fitting to at least 2 inches above the horizontal rear seat back reinforcement.
  7. Tilt the motor/pump assembly to approximately the 10 o'clock position, with the rubber filler plug still at the top CAUTION: THE MOTOR/PUMP ASSEMBLY MUST REMAIN IN THE CURRENT POSITION UNTIL THE RUBBER FILLER PLUG IS REINSTALLED IN THE Step 12.
  8. Remove the rubber fill plug from reservoir.
  9. Fill the hydraulic system by adding Dexron 2 Automatic Transmission Fluid to the bottom of the fill hole CAUTION: DO NOT OPERATE THE TOP SWITCH IN THE UP (CLOSING THE TOP) DIRECTION.
  10. With two people, activate the top switch in the down (opening the top) position to fully retract the cylinder rods and hold for approximately 5 seconds, until the motor/pump stalls. A percolating or gurgle sound/feeling is an indication that the procedure is working.
  11. Top off the motor/pump with Dexron 2 and insert the filler plug.
  12. Install the motor/pump assembly into the vehicle mounting bracket.
  13. Rotate the cylinders back to the original position (hose fitting rearward)
  14. Install the motor/pump lead and hydraulic line clips (the hydraulic line clips are to assist in the production process) to ensure that the seat back/seat cushion do not pinch the lines. If the sticky side is no longer holding to the floor pan, the clips can be left off.
  15. Ensure that the bushing is still on the trunnion pivot mount and bracket. Tap the top switch in (raising the top) to get the cylinder trunnion onto the trunnion pivot mounts, if needed.
  16. Install cylinder mounting brackets.
  17. Raise and lower the top to ensure proper operation.
  18. Install the inner quarter panels, and the rear seat back and cushion.
  19. And Just a fair warning here - you WILL spill fluid inside your car. If you manage not to, I want to know how. I cover everything with garbage bags because there have been a few instances where I accidentally hit the button the wrong way and that stuff went EVERYWHERE. Be careful and good luck.

SOURCE: fuel pump relay

I was just looking for another fuse and came across this diagram and it shows every fuse and relay and where it goes. The Fuel Pump Relay is in the O slot in the fuse box under the hood which is located near the battery. it is a 20 amp mini fuse. Hope this helps, i saved the link for future use if i need it, might be a good idea for you too. Good Luck here is the link.....

SOURCE: How do I change the turn signal bulb on 2000 Ford Mustang

Actually its easier that what the other guy said. lift your hood, look at the headlight there will be two rods that u can pull on the top of the light where it sits in the frame. pull those and u can then pull your headlight out, that will make it alot easier to get to.

Hope This Helps.

SOURCE: convertible top won't go back up, can you help?

IT is probably a fuse. Does it work at all? my mustang had a busted cylinder and only 1 side would go up. If it doesnt work at all then check your fuses. With no manual you will have to use a flashlight and shine on them and see if one is blown. IF they all look good then I would go buy a testlight for about $10 and manually check the fuses for power. It oculd be the motor, however that will cost you several hundred dollars and that is if you install it yourself.

Testimonial: "Thank you so much. I have a friend checking fuses now, not sure. The top would still work to go down, but would give me a problem to go back up.THANKS"

My 1993 Ford Mustang convertible won't go up.But the motor is coming on.Also it will go down thou


There must be a hydraulic fluid leak somewhere. Check to see if there is oil filler cap on your hydraulic pump located in the trunk compartment. Fill if necessary with just enough fluid to raise the top. The reason it won't go up is cause it is lacking pressure from the low fluid

Rag top / convertible top motor/pump won't work. Needs fluid or motor?


most soft tops are operated with an electric wiper motor could be just a rust problem, check behind the seat or in the boot of the car, these are normally behind a panel, a little Q20 should sort it out

How do i put the top down on a 1994 mustang convertable


Relase the 2 latches aove the windshield, lower the windows and then operate the switch to lower the top. the top has an electric motor that operates a pump that sends hydraulic fluid under pressure to a piston on each arm behind the rear seat. That raises or lowers the top.

Convertible top goes down and won't come back up.


You are probably low on fluid.
Behind the rear seat is the motor/pump/reservoir.
With the top down, fill the reservoir till it overflows with ATF. Cycle the system a few times. Repeat till the reservoir will accept no more fluid.
Look for leaking lines or cylinders. The fluid must have gone someplace.
Always replace lines and or cylinders in pairs.

Where is the top motor on the convertible? mustang 2001


My 2001 mustang had the same problem. The fluid is low in the pump. The pump is located behind the rear seatback. Easy to get to. Google removal if you cant figure it out. Once you get to the pump, there is a rubber plug in the end of the pump. Remove the pump from its rubber mounts and stand it on end. remove the plug and fill it with Mercon transmission fluid. Replace the plug and the pump and then run the top several times to get the air out and your done. There is probobly some slight seepage on one of the pistons that raise and lower the top, but I didnt see any leaks on mine and will deal with that later if the problem comes back. Good Luck
