    Default Roof wont work

    will roof not work at all if fluid is on the min. line? Just got car and valet switch is in right spot and support pad in trunk is correct. Just ordered fluid . When I press the switch for roof nothing happens. I can lift it but is very hard or heavy. List of check points or order would be great. Thanks

    HI LTS.

    That is OK with me, that what he is saying on previous memo and hope that it is not now with thunderbird.
    Thanks for the message, at least i know that he must had the chance to read my comments and seens to be partly favorable with the conversion that i have done.
    You have also probably read my comment to PZ and got in contact with CCClark.

    You never answered my question. Are you getting any message in the DIC? That would help with diagnosing your problem

    If no operation and no DIC msg, verify all top-related fuses. If the same symptoms persist, verify the Folding Top Contol Switch is working.

    HI Benny.

    I admire your determintion as in trying to solve the roof problem is not an easy repair, when i purchase my XLR in 2011 at a GM dealer the trained thecnictian had a lot of problem to come up with fine repair.

    The XLR is a computorise car conception to be mostly repair by yhe cadillac dealers, this captive cars his data has to be update frequently, similar of your PC window10.

    If your car is not up date, even if you get succesful to fix it, you will end anyway to the dealers to update the top software.

    The photos that i send you previously is showing the rear module that is the brain of the top, is the connectors covered with blue depots… yes, then what ever you try the top will not work, is your pump gets power, if no then again your chances are very low.

    I know that going to the dealers many of us dont like it, with my experience it cost more, but finally the different is not always so big…. as you get the most update of your cars, the very expensive components still mostly available from the dealer.

    Good luck man.

    IAN
