Q: Convertible top not working.

asked by on January 13, 2016

My convertible top is not operating.

Convertible tops have a few different motors and switches that must all work together or the top just won’t work correctly, if it isn’t working at all check for a mechanical blockage or maybe a failed fuse, if it isn’t any of those have a mechanic from YourMechanic come inspect and diagnose it for you.
