If it is fluid drive, check fluid first. Remove the spare tire and on the right side of the spare compartment there is an oval gap in the metal. You may have to position the black cover out of the way. Reach in and see if there is oil on the bottom of the compartment. If not, probably no leak. Same oil as the power steering and not easy to top off. You may be able to look in there with a mirror, also. Nothing about the Cab top is simple. Typically, there are broken wires in the harness in the trunk lid. They may be broken internally and you can't see the break. You must trace each wire and check it for continuity with an ohm meter, then split the wire insulation and repair it or replace it, typically at the bending point. Way too expensive to buy a new wire bundle from Audi. In your case, the failure occurs at the point in the sequence where the trunk lid is locked. If the trunk does not lock, or the Convertible Top Control Module does not receive the signal that the trunk is locked, it stops the opening sequence. This prevents the convertible top compartment cover from banging into an open trunk lid. There may be other issues, but this one is typical. This system for control of the top is very complex; u will need to have the Audi dealer test it if still it does not work after doing all the above things.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

    Start out by checking the fuses..most of the time it is a fuse that is burned out and needs to be replaced

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..

Just got 2001 mustang convertible rear window is loose on right side how can we fix it, also top wont go down I have read answers for top not going down but am consered about window

If the material is loose from the glass, you have a very common problem. Somtimes it can be repaired with urethane adhesive like is used to install windshields.
If that does not work, you must replace the window unit wich is SEPARATE from the top.

Convertible top won't go down on my 1998 bmw 323ic

Sounds like the sensor has faulted or the pump has become disengaged. Usually when the light is flashing it's a sensor. You can check for a pinched line or low fluid also. There is a manual lock overide procedure to get the windows up, it's in you owners manual.
Good luck...i hope this helps,
