SOURCE: convertable top wont go down..I hear motor running

Your top motor is in the trunk on the drivers side wall behind the panel. Remove the two screws to remove the cover. Check the fluid level in the reservor. Check that no lines have come off of the pump and have someone pushing the top down button while checking. If this is not the problem, then it is a possibility that the e-brake connection is not working right.

SOURCE: emergency break cable broke on 2004 silverado

I had the same problem on my 2003. Open the driver door all the way. Get on your knees just outside the door. Follow the plastic tub that holds the parking brake release cable inside the truck. Start from the release lever and follow to the end of the tube. There will be a metal lever that the cable was attached to before it broke. You have to pull that lever with your hand to release the parking brake. Very Important!!!...Hold the parking brake activation pedal with your other hand when you release the brake. Let the pedal out slowly when you pull the metal release lever. The pedal will come back very fast and you could injure yourself if you are not careful. Good luck!

SOURCE: where is the release for a drawer in a hi lo

There really isn't a release as such. Just lift up on the front of the drawer before you pull it out. If you'd like more help on this or any Hi-Lo camper problems visit the Hi-Lo Trailer Forum at

SOURCE: windshield wipers don't move, but hear motor running

check the nuts on the wiper arms and make sure they are tight. If the nuts are tight then a linkage on the wiper transmission probably came loose or broke. You'll have to pull some cowling off to access it.

The breaks stopped working on my 1996 jayco slide out camper what could cause this

If they are electric brakes I would be checking all the wires from the car plug through the plug to the brake magnets.. It they are over ride hydraulics I would be cleaning out the old fluid and replacing it and pulling the wheel cylinders and master cylinder on the over ride shaft to remove the rusted items.. Mostly caravan hydraulic brakes just rust up for the moisture r that gets into the fluid over time.

You are going to have to disconnect belt and try to turn pulleys on drive system to locate the excact location. It sounds like a belt tension or bearing problem to me.

Have just replaced park brake motor on 03 s type jag does it need to be set up

Yes it needs calibration . Start the car hold the lever for the electric brake all the way up for 15 seconds ( you should hear the brake motor run ) then push down to release the electric brake for 15 seconds . If they are no other problems the brake is now calibrated. Like i said in the procedure when you pull up to apply the brake you should hear the motor run if you don't their is a further problem like the relay or fuse .

I just bough a 1995 Chrysler LeBaron and I don't know how to put the top down.

Flip the sun-visors down. There should be two swivel latches there. Pull the latch handle toward the back of the car. In most cases you'll have to clear the hook from the lip underneath (that'll make sense when you see it). Once the latches are loose, look down at the middle console behind the shift selector. There should be a switch there that will operate the hydraulic pump that pulls the top up and down. Be forwarned...the top motors are inherit to electric motor breakdown (the brushes wear out pretty quickly) so if you hit the switch and don't hear the motor kick in...that is the most likely culprit.

Fan just started running siow

Hi, remove the cover to see if you can get to this fan motor. Turn it off and see if you can touch it to see how much heat it is giving off. I don't know the age, but you may be loosing this motor, or it may have a run capacitor on the side of it that is bad or going bad. This would be cheaper to check and replace then the motor. Most are oval, some are round like a small chrome soda can that will have wires coming out the top. Have this checked or changed. Go to your rv place to do this. Good luck,

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.
  • Damaged fluid reservoir.
  • Damaged folding top hydraulic cylinders .
  • Damaged folding top motor upper and lower hose .
  • Damaged convertible top regulator.
  • Parking brake not engaged.
  • Open power distribution box circuit breaker CONV TOP (30A), fuse junction panel Fuse 1 (15A).
  • Circuitry open/shorted.
  • Damaged convertible top switch.
  • Damaged raise/lower relay .
  • Damaged folding top hydraulic lift motor and plate kit .

  • Convertible Top Does Not Raise/Lower
  • Open circuit breaker or fuse.
  • Circuitry open/shorted.
  • Damaged folding top switch.
  • Damaged raise/lower relay .
  • Damaged folding top hydraulic lift motor and plate kit .

Why is my front brakes bighting the disk it seems as the bike is holding back

Have you confirmed that the front brake is the actual problem? If it is, it means that the hydraulic pressure is not releasing when you let go of the lever or the caliper itself is sticking on its mount or the piston in the caliper is stuck. To check for a hydraulic condition, apply the brake hard, release it and open the bleeder; if fluid spurts out, the hydraulic pressure isn't releasing and the first item to suspect would be the rubber brake line having an internal collapse. If that test shows the hydraulic pressure is releasing, take the caliper off and press the piston in as if you were changing the brake pads. If the piston retracts smoothly, you can rule it out as the cause of the sticking. Lastly, while the caliper is out, check the sliding surfaces and make sure they're all clean. Apply some brake grease on the sliding surfaces to ensure they don't bind and reassemble. Safe riding.

Rear brake light not working wheneither lever is used, bulb is good

If the rear brake light is working when the rear brake pedal is depressed but not when the front brake lever is pulled, the most likely problem is the front brake light switch is bad. The switch is located inside the right handlebar switch housing. To get to the switch, you must disassemble the switch housing. Loosen the throttle and idle cables. Take the two bolts that hold the switch halves together out. Carefully lift the top half of the switch housing and disconnect the throttle and idle cables from the throttle sleeve. Be careful not to lose the ferrules that go on the ends of the cables. Lower the bottom half of the switch housing and you should be able to see the switch on the inside of the end that faces the front brake master cylinder. To replace the switch, you must de-solder the wires, replace the switch, then re-solder the wires to it. When you put everything back together make sure you don't pinch any wires and that the throttle operates as it should.

Good Luck

How do you open the top of a convertible mustang

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. There are two release levers that need to be pulled out and they are located above both of the sun visors. Press the switch just to the left of the emergency break lever. If you can hear the motor running and the top still doesn't go down, check for the smell of hydraulic fluid in the trunk. 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.
