If the convertible top hydraulic pump did not make any noise, the problem is either the switch or the relays. You will need a test light or digital multi meter to do a few electrical tests. Please let me know if you have either of these.
Ok. You can either remove the rear seat bottom and back cushions to access the convertible top motor and relays or go through the trunk and remove the inner panels to get to it.
The is a circuit breaker in the engine bay fuse box that sends power to the relays and fuse #20 in the dash fuse box is power to the switch.
Below is the wiring diagram for the top.
Make sure both relays have power on the RED/LIGHT GREEN striped wire with the key turned on. Then we will have to check for power from the switch to the relays after that.
Fuse #20 sends power to the switch and the switch sends power to the relays.
There should be three wires at the switch.
Gray/Light Blue striped
Gently pop it up. One wire will have constant power, one wire will have power when the switch is pressed down and the other wire will have poser when the switch is pressed up.
Look at the diagram I posted. There is an up relay and a down relay that send power to the pump motor when the switch is pressure for raise or lower top. Power goes from the switch to the up or down relay to energize them.
I am in Florida, so I am in the same boat as you. I'll be on line tomorrow during the day.
Cold air intakes, better exhaust. The chips will require the proper programing tune that only performance shops can do properly. And 100 HP is just a claim, especially on the 3.8L V6.
Your very welcome.
Pull the circuit breaker for the top which is in the engine bay fuse box. Then check for power on those wires.
You will need to check the wiring at the relays and the top pump motor behind the rear seat in the trunk. Unplug the motor first and do the check with the circuit breaker back in. Then unplug the 2 relays and retest.
