If you remove the top two screws on the radio bezel you can pivot down and remove the radio bezel. Your top switch is attached to it. The connector may just be loose on the switch. Using a test light or meter, the center pin on the connector should be the hot wire. Probe between that pin and ground to light up the light or measure 12 volts. If you have voltage at the connector the switch may be faulty. Once you find the hot wire on the connector, if the switch is not working you can make up a little test lead and jump from the hot wire to each of the other two. One connection gives you down andthe other gives you upIf you have no juice at the switch connector you will need to drop the black plastic cover under the steering column that gives you access to the fuses and relays. Look for a non stock looking wire going into the fuse block with a spade lug connection or possibly a disconnected wire. I believe that ASC made a connection at the fuse box to feed the switch. Another way to go about this is to get to the top motor behind the cardboard trunk panel. There are two thick wires and a ground wire attached with a screw into the metal of the body. You can take a 12 volt source, such as another battery and put the negative to the ground screw, and try each motor wire. Again, one is up and one is down. If you can't get any operation this way you have a burned out motor. So you can have one of these problems:1. Loose or disconnected wire at voltage source. 2. Bad switch3. Break in wiring going to the top motor4. Loss of power at door switches for windows5. Relay problem with controller that lowers windows when you operate the top. Let us know what you find. It's common for a connection at the fuse block to get loose. Brian
