I have a 94 cutlass convertible that I can hear the motor run when I hit the top down button but when I press it to go up I hear nothing and does nothing. Is it more likely the switch gone bad or is the motor for the convertible need to be replaced?

If there was no fluid, it wouldn't go down either. That was one of my original issues, I had a messed up pump and the top had to be operated manually.
First place to look would be the wiring or the relay. The relay is in the trunk near the pump.

checck the relays, mine would go up a little, then stop, and after a couple minutes the relay would reset and it would go up again....checked the fluid first to see if it was low, changed the relays out, but in the end it turned out to be the pump...i found a used mustang pump on ebay that worked just fine.

Mine is doing exactly the same thing it can be helped and then works if you lift while its raising .Is there anyone out there that had this symptom with a different cause? ITS LIKE THE MOTOR KICKS OUT WHEN IT GETS HOT OR THE RELAY GETS HOT NOT SURE ?
First look inside behind the seat with the top up, and make sure you can actually see the cylinders connected to the top lifting brackets!
