Default 2001 Mustang GT Convertible Top Problem, Wont Move!

Hey All! My first time posting so please correct me if Im not following any rules.
So Ive owned an 01 Gt convertible for over 2 years now.

August 2010, I had problems with my convertible top. The top went up and down fine, but the problem was to initiate the motion of the top, once initiated it moved just fine.

I think the problem is with some connection/sensor in the ebrake which allows to move the top, because I had to pull and release the ebrake several times and one magical time out of the ten times I would do it, the top started moving down.

So after about two weeks, I figured out if I pull the ebrake and kind of pull it towards myself sitting in the drivers seat and the top would move just fine.

The car just came out of storage after 4 months, and now the top doesnt move at all. Ive tried to hit the ebrake at all angles, but nothing happens now!!



Please Help!!

Welcome.

A couple of things. The convertible top is protected with an automatic reseting circuit breaker. So it's possible for the top to appear to have a mind of it's own.

You job is to isolate the problem. The circuit is fairly simple. I would start by verifing power from the circuit breaker.

Next, some disassembly of the center console is needed to access the parking break. Test the ground through the switch. This will test the switch and the ground.

Also try jumping the parking break switch and see if the top moves.

Diagram attached.
