Question about 2002 Lexus SC 430

Open Question

Top goes down sometimes

Retractable roof sometimes will go down and sometimes it won't. If I pull fuse #17 and re-insert sometimes roof will go down immediately. Dealership says the gear arm is slightly bent ($2,000 to replace) but that makes no sense as it would either go up or not if arm is bent. Any suggestions?l

Check to see that the safety cover in the trunk is properly aligned in the brackets. It must depress a switch on either side of the trunk for the roof to close. Thank you for using Fixya!

Does the inside control panel for a roof top bonaire evaprative cooler have fuses. if yes how do i open the cover?


At least one fuse should be in the house meter box, otherwise on the roof, you must lift the element side panels up (there should be tabs to grip along the edges), pull/swing the bottom of the element panel out and down to remove them, repeat for each side, fuse may be on an upright corner toward the top near the isolator switch.

This is easy, first locate the top button on the center console but do not push yet, next the lever on the front off the top, reach your right hand up and grab lever and pull down and twist counter clock wise to unlock it, you may feel roof pop up a little then with roof unlocked push handle back into its slot, next is push button and hold, the roof will start to open and the trunk will start to open and the roof will store away i the trunk,, make sure trunk is empty at first use, then with the top down and trunk closed you are done, open the trunk just to look inside to see where the top goes, this is to make sure nothing gets in the way of the roof, i cant remember if area is blocked off or not but this is a good idea just so you know.
To close the roof you hit and hold the button and roof will come out of the trunk area automaticlly the roof will end up closed all you do is pull lever down then pull on lever to close roof all the way untwist lever and it will go into lock, you will feel this, once it is in the lock groove you will twist lever to the right to lock it, with it locked you then push lever back into its slot. good day

Convertible top will not go up. Message say fault switch


The first thing that you need to do is scan the BCM (body control module) for failure codes.This top is computer controlled & will not function is certain failure codes are set

I would suspect a hall effect switch failure which will stop the operation of the top

The power retractable/moveable top system consists of the following components:
Roof door module (RDM) • Hydraulic system including pump motor • Hydraulic lines and valve manifold • Electronic actuator for latching the top to the header • Folding top mechanics for the top: - Top - Stowage compartment lid panel - Stowage compartment lid extension panel - Latching mechanism for the top • Serial data communication • Position sensing hardware: - Limit switches - Hall effects as position sensors of the cylinders • Top open/close control switch • Power supply: - RDM/windows 30 circuit breaker - PWR roof 30A circuit breaker - RDM2 15A fuse - IGN 0 10A fuse • Grounds: - G300 - G301
Good luck, i hope this helps.

Top won't go down, sometines it won't go up


I have seen this problem many times. One of your microswitches is either giving a false reading or fell of its retaining bracket. It is much easier to diagnose with a scan tool. My first guess would be that your retractable cover in the trunk lost it's switch input. Check the switch that is contacted when your cover is pulled out. If that is o.k. look inside the hard top deck lid cover very carefully and you will probably see either a broken wire or a loose switch. You may have to manually close your top becuse the switch inputs are illogical. Your manual will tell you how to close your roof.
