Top Stops Moving During Operation (Raising or Lowering)
The circuit breaker could be tripping, which interrupts the power supply to the circuit by design. This will cause the top to stop before completely raising or lowering. Usually, after a period of time, the breaker will reset itself and allow you to complete the raising or lowering process. The breaker itself can go bad, or another electrical component can draw too much power, resulting in the breaker opening. Check to see if the top switch gets warm when operating the top. It's somewhat common for the switch to go bad. A loose connection, corroded or loose ground, or a damaged wire can also be responsible. irstly, if you cannot hear any clicking from the front when you press the switch, either way, I would go looking for a problem with the power supply to the switch. The wire could have come off the switch. You must remove the rear seat to gain access to the motor and relay>. Un-clip the seat base by pushing rearwards on the bottom of the seat base, about a quarter of the way in from the outside, to release the base from the two floor-mounted clips. you have to unbolt the outer seat belt bolts as these hold in the seat back retaining brackets. After that carefully lift the back, to clear the top hooks. The Relay can then be tested for power, etc.
