Remove the plastic cover inside the trunk that surrounds the motor. There should be a connect at the bottom of the motor on the right side. Disconnect it there.
The motors for the convertable top are in the trunk in the very back behind spare tire there is a up motor and a down motor.I believe the driver side motor is the up motor. There is one motor/pump assembly and it is located directly behind the rear passenger seat. It can be accessed by removing the rear seat or by going through the trunk.
The pull down motor switch could be defective. Check for power to the motor
it should be right behind the glove box. take out the glove box or pull it down out of the way by getting the tabs on the sides of the compartment to push in so the glove box drops down. disconnect the connector on the motor & take out 3 or 4 small screws on the motor & pull it out
First, Remove the fuel Pump Relay then crank the motor for few seconds. Stop the motor, put the fuel tank down and disconnect the plug from the fuel pump.
motor is out or you have a fuse blown
motor needs to be replaced, i had same problem
disconnect the electrical connector from the blower motor and remove the 3 screws from the blower motor housing.pull the blower motor and fan straight down. to remove fan from blower motor,squeeze spring clip togetherand slip fan off the shaft.some models have no clip or screw holding fanto shaft, in this case use 2 screwdrivers to pry it off.install fan onto blower motor housing and install blower motor into the heater housing.
The one or one's your looking for are in the trunk under the speaker and back seat trim cover. (Access through trunk) Lot's of fuses here so if checking by sight, only pull one out at a time. The one or one's you want will be secound down from top left.
I am going to answer my own question......As I have had this problem before, my first thought was the pull down motor had gone out again. I replaced it aprox 12 years ago and thought the motor had died again as I use the trunk all the time. Easy fix this time.....what could it hurt (?)......changed the fuse......it worked!
check in trunk, right or left quarter panel for fuse box
possibly the up solonoid located in the trunk attached to the convertable top motor.
in the trunk you have to pull out the sideing (the side of the antenna of course) and you will see the motor behind the sideing, un bold the motor, and hold the silver ring (outside the car on like were the antenna goes down) and twist the antenna inside the trunk and it simply unscrews.
The motor shaft and the wipers are'nt connected properly(the timing is off), just disconnect the wipers from the motor. Turn your car on and cycle the motor and it should be back at the home position. Pull your wipers back down and reconnect and all should be fine.Thats if you put in a new wipermotor. If not, maybe the wiper switch is bad.
The trunk pull down motor is probably blown. I got a used one from a salvage yard and paid $35.00 for it. It take around five minutes to change. Take old part off and take with you to insure you get the right motor.
how can i fix my convertible top motor? no up or down, 1999 BMW 323i
Yes. With enough of a load on a motor the rotation can be stopped. As the motor starts to slow down the current draw of the motor starts to go higher. Usually what will happen is as the current goes higher the overload protection on the motor's starter will trip and disconnect the electrical supply from the motor long before the motor stops turning.
Empty the fuel tank, disconnect your battery (+ and -), take down the tank, disconnect the connector of the sender and the 2 fuel pipes. Then unscrew the sender assembly out of the tank. You have the pump, the strainer and the level sensor.
You'll need to take the fuel tank down, but you have to be careful to disconnect the wire connection on the top of the tank before it comes all the way down.
Where the roof meets the top of the front windsheild, there should be a lever on each side. Pull the levers to unlock the roof from the front window. Then down to the lower right of your steeringwheel, there should be a switch to operate it. If that does not work then their are other issues with motor or wireing. It can also be manually done. If there is no power, unlock the roof from the window and go in your trunk, there is a motor for the roof with tubes running in and out of it. disconnect those tubes, but make sure they are sitting in a container as fluid will pour out if you dont.
If this question is about the trunk lid pull down---there is a switch on the side of the pull-down motor--first step. Else complete pull-down assembly from junk yard.
If you mean the trunk pull-down motor, order it from the dealer. I ordered one last week (August 2008). The part number is 4378724.
you need to go to the buick dealer and buy a new module and replace. it cost me 15.00 for a 92 park ave. easy job 10 min.
there is a fuse, but 9 out of ten times it will be the motor.
you pull down the motor cover over the back seat (pull down the front first) remove the 2 screws on the side, remove the motor. Put a pair of vise grips and turn
