The electric tops have a retraction mechanism that is designed to unfold and fold the frame, which is often referred to as the power top. The driver has to push a button, and the top retracts.
If the relay is clicking and you are confirmed then relay is functioning but the motor is not working or it has got weak or it is getting blocked. One of the major problems that electric convertible tops have are failure issues. The electric motor that controls that top can sometimes fail and result in either the top not going up or not being able to go down.
The other thing to check the voltages at the switch.If the top switch is faulty then it will not let the motor to spin or the top to work. check yor fuse panel and inspect the fuse for the conv. top motor and replace if needed. The top motor is in the lower right trunk below the floor covering. the top will not release unless the trunk is closed and locked. often the wire harness in the trunk hinge breaks or the trunk lock motor binds. check these after you make sure the fuses are good. also check for oil under the spare. sometimes the top reservoir leaks, no oil, no operation of top.The convertible switch is located in the center console. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Saturn ion door

on the far right is where the location of the door lock relay.
this could be the problem however there is also in the same area a door lock controler.
could be one or the other ,most relays are the same in a car.some times you can switch places with one relay with another relay in the same general might have to drop down the glove box to access these relays or controler.
because of the clicking sound my bet is on the relay, most cost about ten bucks at any auto parts shop.
good luck,Gary

1995 chrsler lebaron rear passenger window

If you can get access to the motor try tapping on it while pushing the switch it will usually start working again temporarily, but as far as replacing the regulator assy. Trust me on this you're going to want to take it in and have it done, I've done a few at our shop andit is a huge pain in the rear...lots to re adjust once it's back together due to convertible..I personally hate doing them.. And I'm pretty sure you can only get the motor with the whole regulator assy..

I have a 1995 LeBaron convertible. Sometimes the top goes up and down fine and other times it does nothing.

Yes there is a fuse. It is the easiest thing to check as its right down under the driver's left knee, next to the door, under the steering column. Chances are, if its working sometimes, and sometimes not...its not the fuse. There is a hydraulic pump in the truck that runs the rams that push the top up and down. Take your spare out of the truck, and look back toward where the back of the back seat would be. You'll see it in the middle of of this area about a foot, foot and a half away from the seat. There are two hydraulic lines that run into it. I ran into this same problem and for me it turned out to be the brushes in the motor that ran the pump. If you are technically and mechanically inclined, you can find instructions for rebuilding one with new brushes online...other wise, you might check around with some local shops that say they rebuild starters or alternators. Most of these kind of shops will also work on other types of electric motors (Like the one in the top of the pump the runs the hydraulics). Good luck!

The convertible top will not go up

I would check the switch if you don't hear the pump run. There are some relays in the trunk area that may have a problem. It also maybe the hydralic pump which is mounted in the front of the trunk under some cardboard and carpet covers.

1982 Chrysler LeBaron Convertable

What happened on mine was the motor failed.Check behind he rear sear at the motor to see if you have voltage. I was't willing to replace the motor for 300 bucks so i disconnected the rod ends that push and pull the top and made it a manual top.Works fast and not too hard.

Convertible top's motor is out, is there another way to get it up?

you will have to find out where the motor is and disconnect the arm or mechanism on the motor and then you will be able to pull it up manually also just check the fuse for the top motor if you havent already hope that helps.
