Question about 1989 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

1989 convertible top has worked great, today putting it down, it stopped just about down, now the relays back by the pump just click, click, click when I press the switch. I changed the relays and they still make the same noise with no motion up or down, Can a switch just stop working out of the blue? or is it a pump? The guy I bought the car from said he just replaced the pump motor, Can they just go bad? out of the blue?

Yes they can but it sounds like the "after load switch" sticking up,,,not the pump,,the top has a switch that tells it when its fully closed and this switch turns off the pump,,i would look at this first

I have a 1996 chevy silverado 2500 every once in a while it will stop running,when i pull the fuel pump relay out and put back in it starts back up. it is very warm to the touch,just noticed today tha


I would just replace the relay. Then if it still happens, your fuel pump is drawing too many amps. Causing the relay to overheat and shut off. Time to replace the pump, before it dies on you.

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.

1995 Jaguar convertable XJS quarter light windows wont go up


The rear windows are controlled by a timer in the top's ECU. If
the rear windows stop fully closing before your top is closed, the
problem MAY be with top's hydraulic system.

Check your top's hydraulic reserve tank for low fluid level. Lack
of fluid will greatly delay the top's closing sequence, leaving
those rear windows partially open.
Your top's hydraulic pump system is located beneath the right side
of the cubby/storage box behind the front seats. Raise the cover
and you'll see a removable trim panel on the right side. The pump
is behind that access panel.

You can use power steering fluid to top off the tank, but don't
fill it above level indicator line. You may have to add more fluid
after you cycle the top up and down to get the air bubbles out of
the lines.
It could also be a relay. On a 95 the relays that are in the trunk above the battery.
Perhaps, just switching the relays might prove which one is failing..

1989 LINCOLN NO POWER TO FUEL PUMP CHECK FUEES NEW RELAY


Could be the pump itself. If you have power to the pump but the pump is bad, cuuld make you think you weren't getting power to it.

'02 BMW 330 convertible top (fully automatic) stopped working while putting it down today. How do I repair it?


I would start by checking the pertaing fuses and relay. To check the relay swap one from another accessory that you don't imediately need.If you top operates then you just need to replace that relay. Keep in mind you have power centers under the hood, under the dash and sometimes under the rear seat.If the roof is stuck halfway and is dangerous to drive with there should be an emergency release located between the hydraulic pistons it is usually in the for of a T-handle.

1989 mercedes 300e can the fuel pump relay be reset or does it have to be replaced? is there a way to check it?


autohaus.com is a great place to get relays, usually cheaper than anyone. Normally the fuel pumps just go bad tho. I checked my pump with 2 wires while the car was of and put straight power to it.

Convertible Top Not Working Properly


This is not a low fluid problem, this a contorl motor problem. I had a 1989 Z24 conv. and the same thing happened. I replaced the motor and the top worked just fine.
