Hello and welcome to Justanswer!

If there are truly no fault codes setting then the most likely cause for the top not working would be the pump motor itself, but you would have cleared any fault codes with a battery disconnect, and you may not be using the correct equipment to try to read the fault codes.

Are you using a generic OBDII code reader? That would only be able to read codes from the engine controller and not any of the other modules on the vehicle. An actual scan tool would be needed to diagnose the problem, an actual scan tool starts at $2-2,500 for an entry level unit.
