If what you are trying does not fix your problem and the motor runs, then crack the line loose at each top cylinder, the cylinder is equipped with a check valve inside it that may be stuck, releive pressure and try again to operate, if possible check pressure at the pump.

My convertible top on my mustang gt wont go up or down


Check to see if the top motor is running when you press the top up switch. Car has to be in park with emergency brake engaged. If motor runs but top will not move or binds then one or both of the lift cylinders are bad. Usually there will be hydraulic fluid leaking from the cylinders if one or both will not hold pressure. Replace cylinders if bad. The top could probably be manually closed if the lift cylinder arms are detached from the top frame.
If motor does not run when the switch is pressed then check your fuses, the switch and the connector at the top motor to see if it is getting power.

Convertible top goes down easily, but when putting it up its slow and motor makes a strange sound.


you can try and lubricate all moving parts ( hinge areas ) -- but it sounds like the motor is either starting to fail or is not getting a full 12 volts to it, ( check voltage at motor and battery ).

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.

There is a fuse No.20 (15amp) in the under dash fuse panel and a 25amp circuit breaker in the under hood fuse panel that controls the top.

Sounds like the switch is bad. Also check the relays. You might have one for up and one for down.

Where is the top motor on the convertible?


Based on a third party source, the actual motor is in the general area behind or underneath the rear headrests.

2001 Mustang GT convertible won't go up


You are probably low on fluid.
Behind the rear seat is your motor/pump/reservoir combination.
With the top down, fill the reservoir to overflowing with ATF.
Cycle the system a few times and repeat.
Do this till the reservoir will take no more fluid.
Check the lines and cylinders for leaks. The fluid must be going somewhere.
If you replace any lines or cylinders, always do them in pairs.
