This is similar to a solution I offered another member earlier. If the pump runs at all, but the top won't move, then you most likely have lost some of all of the hydraulic fluid. The most likely source of the leak is one or both bad lift cylinders. If this has happened, the pump is probably screwed now, too. Your best bet is to plan on replacing the pump, both lift cylinders, and all the lines. If you try to save a few bucks by swapping out just the cylinders (for example), you will probably be back under the seat to replace the rest of the system in short order. From my own (unpleasant) experience, plan on doing it right the first time, and you won't have to do it twice.

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.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

You may just have system failure. As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive battery connector and let it sit for at least 5mins. before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get your vehicle back to it's normal operation.

This thing really happens and reconnecting the positive battery connector serves like a jumpstart to the vehicle's PCM (powertrain control module).

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

The top of my 1998 ford mustang covertible stop working. does not go up or down swith make no noise.


Make sure the parking brake circuit is closed. If your parking brake light isn't lit up on your dash, it's not closed. I have some issues with that switch on the brake from time to time. It won't supply power to the top switch unless the brake switch is closed. Hope this helps.

Mustang convertible top


You don't need a manual to check the fuses 1 at a time. Just doing a visual (or use multimeter) will sometimes let you find a bad fuse. You do know that the top is raised and lowered using small motor located under the hood. Use dianostic code reader to find out who, what, where the problem is. Most readers are free to use at Autozone, Advanced Auto Parts, and NAPA.

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

Top worked fine yesterday but today tried to let down only clicked


It is a hydraulic pump that applies pressure to the 2 hydraulic pistons to raise & lower the top. So, check for something obstructing movement first.

The convertible top:
  • is motor-driven.
  • requires parking brake engaged to complete circuit for operation.
  • is equipped with a back window glass (42006) . The back window glass is permanently attached to the folding top back window curtain (52500) and cannot be opened.

My top goes down when i push button but will not go up its a 2001 mustang gt


It is most likely your switch when you try to raise the top push a little harder and see if that makes it try to raise up the top, what you are doing is reversing the hydraulic rams in the trunk, if when depressing the switch you hear clicking from the trunk you may have a bad relay.

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.
