Q: Convertible top doesn't work

asked by on

The convertible top and rear passenger's side window are not working.

Hello. If these both stopped working at the same time then you may have a bad connection. I have had the top on this vehicle end up causing some broken wiring due to contact with the harness. I typically have to tear part of the vehicle down and do some voltage tests to find the problem.
