07 corvette top will retract but deck lid makes no effort to close, then top will not go back up. Need to release pressure in block lift top up about 1/4 of way then top will go back up

Manually Moving the Folding Top from the Down Position
Important: Allow the system a minimum of four minutes to bleed down pressure after the last cycle.
Manually release the folding top cover latch using the emergency release cable.
Raise the folding top stowage cover.
Manually raise the folding top, holding the 5 bow up.
Manually lower and latch the folding top stowage cover.
Manually unfold the top and latch per normal procedure.

Manually Moving the Folding Top from the Up Position
Important: Allow the system a minimum of four minutes to bleed down pressure after the last cycle.
Manually release header latch per normal operation.
Manually lift front of roof off of the header and raise the #5 bow at the same time.
Manually release the Folding Top Cover latch using the emergency release cable.
Fold the roof down into the well.
Manually close and latch the folding top stowage cover.

Power Folding Top System Components
The power folding top system consists of the following components:
• Folding top control (FTC) module
• Body control module (BCM)
• Folding top control switch
• Serial data communication
• Folding top cover latch actuator
• Folding top cover pull down actuator
• Folding top pump motor with valve manifold
• Position switches and limit switches:
- Pin receiver switch
- Luggage barrier switch
- Folding top cover open switch
- Top open switch
- Top closed switch
- 5 bow raised switch
- 5 bow lowered switch
• Tonneau release relay
• BATT 2 Fuse 40 A
• Folding top mechanical components:
- Folding top
- Folding top cover
- Folding top valve 1
- Folding top valve 2
- Folding top valve 3
- Hydraulic lines and cylinders

Folding Top Cover Latch Actuator
The power folding top system includes a folding top cover that is powered open and close by a hydraulic system that is controlled by the FTC module. A power unlatch motor is used to unlatch the folding top cover before the folding top control (FTC) module powers the top cover open. The folding top cover unlatching is requested by the FTC module via class 2 message, but is executed by the body control module (BCM). When requested, the BCM applies battery voltage through the folding top cover release relay control circuit to the tonneau release relay. The relay is energized and battery voltage is applied through the folding top cover release control circuit to the latch actuator. The actuator is energized and the latch releases the folding top cover.

The electronics on this are very complex ,

System Operation
Before any movement of the power folding top is allowed, the folding top control (FTC) module must be aware of the following conditions:
• Unlatch the header. The FTC module reads the pin receiver switch is Inactive.
• The windows must be normalized. Refer to Power Window Reinitialization.
• The ignition must be placed in Accessory or RUN.
• The transmission must be placed in PARK, or with manual transmission, the park brake must be applied.
• Trunk status must not be ajar.
• The luggage barrier must be in place.
• The pump motor temperature must be within the operating range.

After the last cycle of power folding top operation, allow the hydraulic system a minimum of 4 minutes to bleed down before attempting manual operation of the top.
Your best bet take and have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .
DTC B3666 Rear Tonneau Position Error

2007 GT. Where do I check the hydraulic fluid?

Folding Top Fluid Addition
Caution: Refer to Eye Protection Caution in the Preface section.
When servicing the hydraulic system do not allow the fluid level to drop below the minimum indicator line on the reservoir.

Inspect the hydraulic fluid level with the vehicle parked on a level surface, the folding top in the closed position, and the stowage compartment lid open.

When new, the power folding top hydraulic fluid is golden clear. As the system is cycled, it picks up the carbon black from the numerous O-ring seals used in the system. The carbon black acts like a dye and causes the fluid to darken considerably and take on a black appearance. This is a normal occurrence and no repair attempts should be performed, as replacement fluid will also darken.

Place a protective covering over the interior and the adjacent body panels. Locate the hydraulic pump in the folding top storage compartment area on the right side. Remove the rear quarter trim panel. Refer to Rear Compartment Side Trim Replacement - Right Side . Place a shop towel around the pump motor to control any hydraulic fluid spillage.
Important: Wait 5 minutes before separating the hydraulic cylinder lines at any connectors.
Remove the reservoir filler plug. Add fluid GM P/N 88901975 or (Canadian P/N 88901976) ONLY, add the fluid until the level is at the middle of the indicator line on the reservoir.
Notice: Refer to Fastener Notice in the Preface section.
Install the reservoir filler plug.
Folding Top Deck Lid Access
In the event that the rear compartment lid is inhibited from conventionally opening due to a folding top symptom, displaying a TOP NOT SECURE message or that the folding top operation can not complete the opening or closing sequence as it is inhibited by the rear compartment latch being ajar, displaying a TOP INOP-TRUNK message, follow the steps below to determine the specific Tech 2 Special Function to gain access.
Important: Allow the system a minimum of three minutes to bleed down pressure after the last cycle.

  1. Ignition On, engine OFF.
  2. Press and hold the folding top control switch. Verify the TOP INOP-TRUNK message does not appear in the driver information center (DIC).
  3. ?‡'
    If the specified message is displayed, perform the TOP INOP-TRUNK Access procedure.

  4. Press and hold the folding top control switch. Verify the TOP NOT SECURED message does not appear in the DIC.
If the specified message is displayed, perform the TOP NOT SECURED Access procedure

Your better off to take it to the dealer - Chevy ! no Pontiac any more !

Oyster satellite dish wont go up it just saying Y Blocked

Get a small pointed screw driver and check that
the plug /wire connections into the plug going into the control box are all pushed in oK.

Also you might have low battery voltage, run the engine for 10-15 mins to charge the battery.

It is possible to fold the dish manually by getting on the roof and undoing the two bolts one either side then folding the dish down and re doing the bolts tight in order to stop the wind getting under it.

I have a 1988 vw cabriolet, it of course has a manual top, and it goes about 2/3 rds of the way then it wont budge anymore. ive got it down before, then the next day i tried to put it down and it wont go...

Make sure that as the top is folding backwards, the soft part of the top is not getting stuck in the hinges or between the support bars. If it is folding improperly, there might be a piece of the top that is keeping the rest from folding as it is supposed to. My father had this problem on his Mazda Miata once, but resolved it by paying closer attention when he opened it (he usually opened it from the driver's side, but once it started getting stuck, he had to walk around the car and make sure the passenger side was folding properly, too).
If it is not part of the soft top that is jamming you up, check the hinges all the way around. If one of them has a loose screw or broken rivit or something, that can jam it up too. Also, while the top is open, check the storage space that the top folds into -- if there is something in there, it could block the top from having the space to fold into.

How do i fold up the stroller... i have done it many times but it is not folding

If it's stopped folding something has jammed the mechanism best to remove all detachable parts so you can see the bare frame then carefully watch how each part moves as you try to close it. It could be something bent out of shape or jammed. Silicon spray is the best lubricant to use on buggy frames.
