you will need to check to make sure no coins fell into the track and is jammed it if not you will need to replace the bottom frame of the seat possible with a junk yard one much cheaper than buying new and junkyard frames come complete.

SOURCE: Can you rebuild a window regulator on 1999 Volvo

These items are timed very well to insure that the window goes up and down smoothly. I've tried and I've been doing this over 20 years. It can be done but by the time you get it done, the frustration level and time it takes, you could already have it fixed and not worrying about the repair. buy used if cost is an issue. They work just fine and cost about 1/4 of a new. Check with local salvage yards in your area. If you're in the midwest, plan on having one shipped from the west coast. It will be cheaper and quicker than spending days looking in the immediate area.

One of the microswitches at the latches is not engaging stopping the cycle for safety reasons in case something is stuck, open the roof again and inspect the latch down areas for foreign objects or a misaligned microswitch.

Hi can't open boot due to roof not working and cannot close the roof at the back catch because u need to turn Allen key bolt to lock it manually which is in the boot can u help please


Hello, One thing is, you never mentioned was when the top stopped working in the first place (i.e. did the car battery die, the nit stopped working, out of the blue, etc.. etc..).
That information could be very helpful in diagnosing the problem.

You may already know this, but someone else reading this info may not, so hopefully it's useful to someone.

The windows need to be working properly and be normalized for the top to function. If you have a specific window that is not working, fix that window first.

Do this to "normalize" the windows:
Press power window switch and roll the window up/down (depending upon where it is when you start) until the window is either completely closed/open and when it reaches the fully opened or closed position keep holding the button for an additional 2-4 seconds. Repeat procedure in both directions up/down for each window. After this point the auto up/down features should be working.

If they won't go up at all after power loss, try this:
If windows won't go up after loss of electrical power. Make certain trunk and all doors are closed. Stand outside by driver's window. Use the key remote to lock car. All windows should go up.

If this doesn't get your top to move, I would hold/press the rollbar button up for 20 to 30 seconds and then down for 20 to 30 seconds. Once the rollbar is put back down, the top should start working again.

If it still doesn't work, I would get some WD-40 or some equivalent penetrating oil and oil where the rear key goes in on the boot/trunk lid and try it again. Sometimes these get stuck and the WD-40 will get them moving again.

Hope this helps and if it doesn't please post back what happens, so I can try to help.

Thanks,
TJ

HARD TOP WILL NOT GO DOWN. HARD TOP WILL STOP MID WAY THROUGH THE PROCESS.


Hi. There are 2 flaps, one left, one rights the fold back when the roof is retracted. they are triangular in shape, and fold in half just behind wher the rear windows should be. check that these have folded back, it is normaly the right side that does not fold. reposition this flap and if the roof works the a simple string correction will be needed.

Convertible top


Taken from answers .com There are several fuse boxes on the Cadillac Allante. I know that, in particular, the 1993 Allante has a fuse box in the trunk, right next to the battery, underneath the ashtray assembly, and then one more in the engine compartment. For the one in the trunk-- lift the trunk. Facing the rear of the car, looking at the back window, move over to the right rear wall of the trunk and flip up the panel there. It is a carpeted panel that is not obvious. Shake that panel a bit and you will see that you can flip it up. I believe it has some Velcro tabs that keep it down. There is a fuse box sitting there inside the shell of the body once you open that flap. You won't miss it. For the one by the battery, which is located within a shelf behind the passenger seat---slide the carpeted shelfing facade towards the passenger's seat.

HEY GUYS MY 97 328I CONVERTIBLE WONT OPEN OR CLOSE THE TOP, AS RIGHT NOW IT IS IN CLOSE POSSITION BUT THE LIGHT KEEP ON BLINKING, i DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO ANY MORE COULD ANY BODY HELP ME?


Turn on the radio so the battery is engaged, or turn on the engine.

  • 2 Fold down the cargo partition in the trunk and lock it on both sides. If the cargo partition is not down, there will be no place in the trunk to store the convertible top.
  • 3 Press the convertible button forward to open the top. It's located under the circular control button on the consul. The button has a picture of a window with one arrow pointing up and another pointing down.
  • 4 Pull the convertible button backward to close the top.
  • 5 Use your key to open or close the top when you are outside of the BMW but still close to it. Press and hold the arrow button on top of your key to open the top. To close the top, press and hold the Lock button. The car does not need to be turned on to operate the top with the key.

    I have a 2004 325CI BMW. My problem is that the top will not go down. When you push the button you hear nothing. The top was working fine one day, the next day it was not.


    first thing to check is in the trunk there is a flap that folds up to give more trunk space when top is up. but needs to be manually pulled back down to allow top to operate i.e. so the top has room to fold up into whendown other wise the button will just blink when pressing button and nothing will happen.

    Trunk wont open and the back seat wont fold down on our kia optim


    By switching the lever you locked the inside trunk release, you will need to put lever back. as far as the trunk you may need to remove the rear seat, pop lower part out and then remove the bolts to the top half of the seat then try to reach the lever so it will open from the inside. i've found that many of these cars with the pop lever inside have sticking trunk locks from not being used, what you do first is spary lock good,with wd40 or pb blaster then slide key in and out and try to turn this may take a whhile but it works then tumbler will free up, you just have to keep spraying inside lock and working the key.

    Convertible top won't go down on my 1998 bmw 323ic


    Sounds like the sensor has faulted or the pump has become disengaged. Usually when the light is flashing it's a sensor. You can check for a pinched line or low fluid also. There is a manual lock overide procedure to get the windows up, it's in you owners manual.
    Good luck...i hope this helps,

    2005 crossfire top wont go down


    This can be caused by your trunk lid not being all the way shut .  But the most times this has happened to me the separator panel that lifts out toward you and latches to separate top from trunk space is not lifted into the latched position.. very frustrating till i figured it out.  Hope this helps helps.
