Question about 1992 Pontiac Firebird

1 Answer

Convertible top switch going on and off

I just replaced the battery on my 1992 Firebird and everything works except one thing.  There is a switch to control the locks that open the compartment behind the back seat to fold the top into.  Without pulling the switch I can hear these locks going on and off on a cycle about every two seconds.  They will not stop, car on or off.  The timing seems to be on a pattern.
I have a manual but there is no mention of this area in the electrical section whatsoever, not even an acknowledgement that it exists, even though I can see the cables coming out of the switch.  They are routed through the trunk and then up above the wheel well and I wasn't up for tearing my car apart just to see where they go.
Anyway, kind of on odd problem.  If anybody with a convertible top has ever seen this or can point me in the right direction that would be wonderful.  Thanks.

If you can see the actual electrical line going to the locks,why not cut a switch into the line so that you can turn it off? Not the 100% correct answer but you could turn it on & off.

Beetle servo motor stuck


All operations are handled by the convertible top control module. Assuming everything else works except the roof lock(s), the control module may not be getting the right inputs for locking. The convertible top operation switch could be defective or the top open/closed position switches could be defective or the linkage flap position sensors could be defective and finally, there could be a mechanical problem

Does anyone know where the motor for the convertible top is located on a 01 pontiac firebird?


its actually a very intricate system of motors and support arms i wouldnt try to do it yourself. pontiacs are notorious for having problems with those type of motors like windows, headlights, and convertable tops. as a matter of fact i had a pontiac sunfire with the same problem i just got the convertable top up and left it that way cause it got stuck half way up once so stop using it till you get it fixed or you might have a permanent convertable.
