If motor does not run when the switch is pressed then check your fuses, the switch and the connector at the top motor to see if it is getting power. Remember the car should be in park with the emergency brake on. The key switch has to be in the run position. If you can hear the motor running check for the smell of hydraulic fluid. It could leaking from the cylinders that pull the top down and push it up. If one or both will not hold pressure. Replace cylinders if bad.

My 1993 Ford Mustang convertible won't go up.But the motor is coming on.Also it will go down thou


There must be a hydraulic fluid leak somewhere. Check to see if there is oil filler cap on your hydraulic pump located in the trunk compartment. Fill if necessary with just enough fluid to raise the top. The reason it won't go up is cause it is lacking pressure from the low fluid

Sounds like the switch is bad. Also check the relays. You might have one for up and one for down.
