Those car tops are fairly complicated. I would try to find a T-Bird specialist rather than let some hack play around with it. If you are a do-it-your self kind of guy then post this question on a "Jet" bird forum.


On the deck lid their is a switch at right front of inner panel on body that ma be stuck,so 2nd faze of top opperatation can't actuate. It is called plunger switch.
