Unhappy Convertible top problems

I have a 1988 Mustang GT Convertible with a problem. The top will not go up. The motor is not making any sounds. I checked the fuses under the dash. Can anyone help??? I don't want the call the mechanic for something small.

Re: Convertible top problems

I would take the back seat out Not sure how to in your year car

Then you can see the top motor, check for leaks of fluid, if all that is good use a power tester (screw driver thing with a wire to ground) to see if the motor is getting power when you push the button.

If the power tester shows the wire has power but the top aint moving either you dont have fluid, the top motor is burnt up, or something along those lines. Listen to the motor. You can also wiggle the connections etc to ensure a good contact (clean the contact wires as well)

YOu can disconnect the motor from the top and put it up manually if you have to~
