Exclamation Convertible top not working/ and front lights

I have a 2005 cruiser turbo and i got it in May of last year used. The top worked for like a week then it stopped. Now, it will not go down..windows go down and it sounds like a motor or something..I have been doing some research and some people say the fuse but I am not sure what number or where to find it. Also, the bright lights are the only ones that work now. The turn signals don't work in the morning but once the car is driven a little bit they start working again. Please help someone. It is going to be summer in a minute and I can't go another summer with a vert top that doesn't work. Or driving with my high beams all the time..PLEASE..

Hmmm... First I would check to see that the switch to top on the dash hasn't come loose and is plugged in, then check ALL the fuses to see if any have blown and lastly look to see that the ground wires on the car are not separated from the car. As for the turn signal, I'd say you may have a multifunction switch going or has gone bad.

If you hear the pump motor, then it may be hydraulic as well.

I'd also check hydraulic fluid .

I'd try PCM reset first to see if light problem goes away by removing battery cable for 5 minutes, that's probably not if in this case, but on this car I've found this fixes a lot of things that you wouldn't expect

Hello

I have the same problem...when I want to take the top down I hear a sound like the car is really trying hard to make it happen but the top stays on...any advise? The dealership told me to replace the motor without even inspecting it and it's ridiculously expensive, I think they are trying to rip me off for an extra buck! They sold the normal pt's in Dubai but mine is an import as they never sold the convertibles over here and this is now the reason for insane quotes. I have a friend that can buy the parts for me in the US and bring it back and would appreciate any suggestions. My front light covers are also very dull...do I need to replace them or can it be cleaned somehow? I have a 2005 convertible and LOVE my baby but she needs a bit of a fix me upper and I refuse to let go of her...I actually have a list of things that would need repairing and can share it as I would really like to have her in optimum condition.
Many thanks
