SOURCE: After removing the Hardtop, the softtop will not raise.

I'd check at switch itself first. If you can get a test light on wires at back of switch, you will get power at one, when switched one way, and should have power at another when switch other way.

SOURCE: WHY WON'T THE CONVERTIBLE TOP MOTOR ENGAGE. WHILE DRIVING TOP BUTTON BLINKS RAPIDLY.

The top should not work above a certain speed or at all if the vehicle is moving. The top can easily rip from the wind if deployed at too fast a speed and even make the car unstabile while rolling.

Most tops will raise above the windshield height when they deploy and can fail to clear carports or drive-thru facilities. The tops can catch low hanging light fixtures or even garage door openings.

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

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.

1995 Jaguar convertable XJS quarter light windows wont go up


The rear windows are controlled by a timer in the top's ECU. If
the rear windows stop fully closing before your top is closed, the
problem MAY be with top's hydraulic system.

Check your top's hydraulic reserve tank for low fluid level. Lack
of fluid will greatly delay the top's closing sequence, leaving
those rear windows partially open.
Your top's hydraulic pump system is located beneath the right side
of the cubby/storage box behind the front seats. Raise the cover
and you'll see a removable trim panel on the right side. The pump
is behind that access panel.

You can use power steering fluid to top off the tank, but don't
fill it above level indicator line. You may have to add more fluid
after you cycle the top up and down to get the air bubbles out of
the lines.
It could also be a relay. On a 95 the relays that are in the trunk above the battery.
Perhaps, just switching the relays might prove which one is failing..

The Covertable top button does nothing, The relay has been replaced and the fuses are good unless there are some I do not know about.


Do you hear the motor running? If yes, then it could be the fluid level in hydraulic unit.

To check the hydraulic unit:
- Remove luggage compartment trim.
- Open convertible top once and close again to bleed the system.
- Convertible top must be closed.

If you have another way of bleeding the hydraulic unit, then do it and make sure to bleed the hydraulic unit.

Good luck!

99 SAAB convertible, top takes a long time to open and close now.


The most common reason for this is low hydraulic fluid. The noise is probably the pump running while empty. When fluid id present it dampens that noise. Behind the rear seat is the combination motor/pump/reservoir. With the top in the DOWN position, fill the reservoir with ATF and cycle the system a few times as far as it will go. Repeat until the reservoir will take no more fluid. If that works, it is only a patch fix. You must now inspect the lines, motor and cylinders for leaks. The fluid does not evaporate. If it is low, you have a leak. Karl at topgunwon.com

1999 vw cabrio convertible top doesn't works


You have to put hydraulic fluid (power steering fluid will work too) in the convertible top motor. The motor is in the trunk, on the left hand side, under a panel. Pull the panel off and that is the electric motor for the top. You'll see a reservoir where you put in the fluid. Put in the fluid and you'll be good to go.
