Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

This may be happening due to an electrical issue such as a bad microswitch or wiring issue, it may be a mechanical failure or a hydraulic issue. It's going to require some testing to determine exactly what is wrong.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to see what fault codes have set in the power top control module. Have you read the codes?

All it says is that the top is in operation. There r no other codes.
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

So you still hear the pump and components running?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
No. But if it sits awhile it will go back down when I hit the down or up switch depending on up or down
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

If the noise stops it's because the PTCM is seeing a failure, setting fault codes and stopping operation. How are you checking for fault codes?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
We don't have a way 2 check the fault codes
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Is it something that a place like O'Reilly can do?
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

A parts store would have a generic OBDII code reader but not a scan tool. If you're unable to see physical damage to components or wiring then an actual scan tool is going to be required to begin diagnosis.

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.
