If the motor is only moving top one direction, either the switch is bad or the motor is bad. You can use an ohmmeter or volmmeter to test the switch. Place meter probes on the wiring that attaches to motor. Now press the switch in both directions. See if there is power in both directions from switch. If not the switch is bad. If you do get power both directions, than the motor will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: 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.

Why won't my convertible top go down


Most likely the motor has failed so have it tested. Also check the fuse for the motor.

If you are having trouble with the top don't try and keep opening it because if it goes down or partly down you may not be able to get it back up again.

My 2006 Toyota Solara convertible radio volume goes in and out, what can I do


Sit in back seat passenger side. Remove panel which is on top which is below rear window, same panel where seat belt goes into panel at top. You will need to remove #2 Phillips screws which hold panel in place. Screws are hiding behind seat belt front cover where belt goes down in panel, under cup holder which allows arm rest cover to lift off and one more right on left side of head rest in corner. Remove panel. You will see switch which is in vertical position. If for any reason you want to by-pass switch, just unplug switch. Radio will still work in standard mode. The amp sound will not increase in performance when top is down and sound will not be as sharp.

05 audi a4 convertible top goes half way up and stops. Won't go farther or back down


Happened to me while parking on a slight incline...moving to flat surface alleviated problem. However, my top stuck in down position so dealer replaced the module for $750...probably should be a recall item.

Convertible top switch works sometimes but other times it does not work


If the convertible top switch not working properly every-time.Then the switch and its electrical connections/wirings needs to be checked. The switch is typically located in the trunk, positioned right beside the covering of the left or right tail light. The switch should be set to automatic, not manual. If the switch is properly set, then other things are causing the problem. The other things blocking the top to move up and down is its hinges.If the hinges are bent or cracked or got loose then this can be the other reason. If the hinges are in good condition, then check the convertible top struts. These are the mechanisms that lift the convertible top. Lift struts deteriorate due to wear and tear and will need to be replaced if it's the source of the problem. Another very common reason for a not working convertible top is the worn out elastic straps. Furthermore, the convertible top's fuse could be blown out and as a result it's causing the convertible top to stop working. In newer latest models the convertible top is controlled by a single button conveniently located next to the handbrake. You press a button to release a center locking device - none of this moving the sun visors out of the way and releasing two latches on other sides of the car stuff! - then twist the device with its conveniently large handle. Then you press the button, and if you're lucky, it'll work the first time. If not, try it again! The temperature display goes from blue to yellow and shows a "convertible top opening" graphic, and the top opens up and neatly folds itself in back. You can release the button when it beeps again. Putting it back on again is the same basic process, though you have to wait for the beep, then press the latch release, twist it, pull down, then re-twist the latch again. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Vw convertable top


There are two strings in your top...they are red I believe...look down inside the sides of the top...pull them up to release the tension on the top....then open your trunk lid and on the left side there is a little switch turn it counter clockwise then you should be able to release your top and put it up manually....then latch it into place...then go back to your trunk and turn the switch back....it should work fine

Mustang 2001 convertible top goes up but not down.


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