Customer Question

I have a 2008 audi tt that has a power top that wont go up or down,, I bought the car used with 29000 miles, so i manually put the top up and of course it has been a problem before because tools were missing .Okay so i have checked fuses and power to the motor which it comes on momentarily then loses power, when the top was down the side flaps would come up and thats when power would get to motor then stop.what do I need to check ,flap motors,top motor ,....Thank You Darrell

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
The first thing that needs done here is to have the fault codes checked/read out with a scan tool that will plug in and communicate with all computers.Once this has been done any codes set will need diagnosed to locate and repair the fault here.I suspect this will be a position sensor/switch at fault causing this needing replaced as this is a common component for this fault.
Thanks Pete
