Hello and welcome back to justanswer.com
Yes unfortunately it does seem like that pump is starting to fail as we previously discussed. I would like to first swap out the top up and top down relays just to rule them out first as that pump is very costly. Also make sure the fluid is not thicken up. Click on the link for the relay locations.
It is interesting that you mention the up and down relay because if I remember correctly the fuses have only blown when operating the top in the up direction.
Just to be clear you are recommending Swaping the Relays with new ones not moving the top relay into the bottom location and vica versa.
So after replacing the relays, the top was operating fine for about 5 open and close cycles but then the 40 Amp fuse began to blow again. The fluid in the reservoir looks like oil should when I shake the car it flows back and forth. So does this mean I have only one more option which is to replace the pump/motor. Is there any value/procedure for flushing out the old fluid and replacing it with new fluid first? Is this speacial hydraulic fluid?
