Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You could have a convertible top repaired at most any shop. Any dealer would be able to do the work, most independent shops and body shops would also be perfectly capable and willing. Some modern tops though are controlled by modules which some independent or body shops may not have a scan tool that will communicate with it.

What year and model is the car?

No

Are you seeing a warning message on the instrument cluster when it stops then?

Nope, the windows go all the way down, it attempts to open but stops less than 1/4 down, can you give me an estimated cost to repair?
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Cost to repair it will depend on what is wrong. If the pump stops running then the module is stopping operation because of something it's seeing. The module watches a series of microswitches to know the state of each component during operation. In your case it's most likely seeing a switch in an incorrect state either due to mechanical failure, wiring, or a failed microswitch. This is something that a dealer may need to diagnose as many shops won't have the proper scan tool. If it's a switch failure then the cost to diagnose and repair it will probably be in the $2-300 range.

That's not bad depending on that being wrong with it. I know Chrysler dealership charger $200 just to see what's wrong with it
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

They would most likely charge .5 to 1 hour of labor to diagnose the issue, some shops have a one hour minimum charge. Some will diagnose an issue for free if you allow them to do the repair, it just depends on their policy.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
