Yes, it is explained in detail in your owners manual. If yours is missing and you need a PDF copy, go here:

2005 PT convertible top won't raise - can top be manually raised?


Check your manual for the location of the top fuse.
Your car left the factory as a hardtop and was converted to a soft top by a Chrysler authorized company so the top fuse(s) may not be with the other fuses.

Just bought 1990 Corvette convertible w/Hardtop. we took the hardtop off to put the convertible top up - left driver's side latch works, the right side will NOT release - we can't get the hatch open to get...


All I can do is suggest as my 'Vette's are older.

If my research is correct, I did find that the decklid latch mechanism is released by a cable. The cable probably has stuck in the cable sheath, due to years of neglect, (Failure to periodically lube the cable. Hint/hint)

You need to manually release the decklid mechanism.
Now bear with me, as again, my 'Vette's are older, ('70 and '76), and their seats tilt forward.

If you can tilt the passenger seat forward, perhaps you can get in there and lube this cable through it's sheath. (Use penetrating oil at first. I would then remove the cable, and clean it, then lube it, after getting the decklid open. Lube? White Lithium in a spray can)

Then try to pull the latch mechanism in the direction the cable would pull it, to release it.
(The cable may be broken?)

Yes! Whoever does this feat of magic, of getting to that decklid mechanism, will look like a contortionist! Hit the jacuzzi afterwards! lol!

After removing the Hardtop, the softtop will not raise.


I'd check at switch itself first. If you can get a test light on wires at back of switch, you will get power at one, when switched one way, and should have power at another when switch other way.
