Question about 2000 Ford Mustang

2005 PT convertible top won't raise - can top be manually raised?

The switch still lowers all the windows, but top doesn't raise. I don't have an owners manual - can I manually raise the top without breaking it? Anyone know where the relay and fuses are for the top? The main fuses look fine - but none are marked for the top.

Check your manual for the location of the top fuse.
Your car left the factory as a hardtop and was converted to a soft top by a Chrysler authorized company so the top fuse(s) may not be with the other fuses.

How to fix mini Cooper convertible top after battery change


After a dead battery or a battery change the mini can "forget" the positions of the windows and flash an error code when attempting to raise or lower the top. The fix is to raise and lower the windows completely and then the top will raise and lower normally.

1988 Mazda rx7 window won't raise or lower


Its either the switch or the window regulator. They all 'live' on the passenger side by the way. I have had both replaced on passenger side over the years on my '88 convertible and guess what? Passenger side window decided not to go up today..down yes..up no so I hope its just a switch. She goes into the hospital Monday. Good luck with yours.

If the motor and regulator both work fine or sound like they are engaging when your try to raise the window,but you hear nothing when you try to lower the window then I think it is a pretty safe bet to say your switch is bad.

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.

How do i put the top down on a 1994 mustang convertable


Relase the 2 latches aove the windshield, lower the windows and then operate the switch to lower the top. the top has an electric motor that operates a pump that sends hydraulic fluid under pressure to a piston on each arm behind the rear seat. That raises or lowers the top.

If your window should lower/raise slightly,when opening/closing.
Try reprograming
Make sure other door is shut
Open drivers door,lower window,enter car,shut door,raise/lower several times

The convertible top will not go up or down, although it sounds as if it wants to. Is there a way to manually raise/lower the convertible top?


There are 2 hydrolic rams that raise and lower your roof. You can just disconect them from the top, then manualy raise and lower the top. But it sounds more like your fluid level is low. Open your trunk and find the pump pull the plug and fill the resiorvor.
