I suggest you take this to the dealer ! This is a complex system with two control modules ,the front control module an rear control module , two relays in the Aux . relay box . Top up relay an top down relay . The two control modules communicate on the SCP serial data bus . If you don't know what I telling you ,best take it to someone who does . Need a Factory scan tool to check this problem out. Communications Network Information Module Cars are getting more an more electronic an with out proper training you just shouldn't try to fix them , It takes special tools an training !

Door locks dont work and convertible top wont come down


Door lock issue could be several things. The switch is usually the cause, but the relay could also cause this. The convertible top is usually the relay in the trunk. It is on the upper area of the rear seat, in the middle of the trunk. Replace it. I have replaced them before, and the new relay did not work. I re-wired some of these with two relays. One for up control and one for down control. Have fun.

Convertible top will not work


Check out the fuse for the convertable top motors. See if something is binding against the convertible machine motors or mechanisms or the material itself. Pull it up slightly to free any obstructions and try again. If you can, check to see if the relays for the vtop motors are working and see if you are getting power to all devices including the switckh on the dashboard.

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.

Same problem with the windows, radio, and convertible top on mine


that is because you have an electrical relay that has burned out. this is a high powered relay running different components in the car. check your owners manual and just replace this from auto parts store.
