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 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 B3667 Tonneau Release Circuit
DTC B1011

I have G6 convertible sensor "top not secure" warning on panel. However secure and working. The hard top just stopped opening. Please advise Deborah


Hi Deborah , Your going to have to take to the dealer , there is a DTC - diagnostic trouble code stored in the ( FTC ) folding top control module . Such as this one DTC B1296
S14 is the Folding Top Front Latch Actuator Position switch. The Folding Top Control (FTC) Module uses S14 to determine when the top is latched in both the open and closed positions. S14 closes and pulls the signal circuit low when the top is latched.
DTC 1296 01: Movable Roof Header Unlatched Sensor Circuit short to battery

DTC 1296 06: Movable Roof Header Unlatched Sensor Circuit short to ground or open

DTC 1296 58: Movable Roof Header Unlatched Sensor Circuit incorrect reaction after event

DTC 1296 59: Movable Roof Header Unlatched Sensor Circuit circuit/component protection time out

Circuit/System Description
S1 is the Folding Top Header Latch Cylinder Sensor. The Folding Top Control (FTC) Module uses S1 to determine if the Folding Top Header Latch Cylinder is in the latched or unlatched position. S1 is a hall effect sensor that becomes active when the cylinder is in the unlatched position.

There seems to be no way to unlatch the hood release for my 92 buick regal. i have the grill off, but can see nothing at all on how to disengage. i need a diagram of assembly to figure out how this works.


Can you grab the cable with some vise grips and pull on it to open the hood? If not you need to crawl under the front remove the rock guard and look up were the cable is that runs to the hood latch. Once located use a pair of wire cutters and cut the cable as far away from the latch as possible. Once cut try pulling on the plasic covering to see if it will pull off the actual cable. Then pull on the cable and hood should unlatch.

Tailgate won't unlatch


sometimes pushing in on the gate will release pressure on the latch enough to pop it, but the real problem is the linkage to the latch. it's probably stretched or bent from force. once you get it opened, take off the panel and manually latch and trigger latch it. see how the linkage acts and take out any slack w/pliers etc.
