Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Top will not latch closed. When I try to retract the top nothing happens....just a motor noise coming from the rear fender well.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If you hear a noise from the trunk when the top button is pressed you're most likely hearing the pump. If the pump is still running then you either have a mechanical issue preventing the top from moving, the pump has failed or there is a hydraulic fluid leak.

How close is the top from touching the header?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The top is about 2 inches from closing.I thought the whole system was electrical. If there is a leak, how can I tell?
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

You would start by checking the fluid level. Are you able to get the trunk lid open?

The rear deck lid is stuck in the oipen position.
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

I was wondering if you could open it from the rear but you have plenty of access with it being open that far. The noise you hear when pressing the top button is coming from the left rear of the inside of the trunk, correct?

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

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.
