Not seeing a wiring diagram or not knowing what manufacturer made it I can only guess.
First thing I would check would be the battery in the fob. Make sure its fully charged. Then I would check the car battery. In my system if the voltage is below a certain voltage the system wont work.
If all these check out ok then I would check to see if the control module is getting power and working.
My system has a relay. If yours has one I would check that next. Make sure its getting power and working.
thanks for the reply ive not had the car that long so dont know that much about it
the fob works as the lights all flash and the alarm beeps etc as it did before the roof stopped working.
i have a brand new battery on it already i did try also connecting a power pack for extra boost but that made no difference
im not that great with the electrical side of it working out what does what
ive hopefully uploaded some photos of my nova as it is now before i got it it was left in a garage for 10 yrs
it has been fitted with a scooby engine which i have managed to get running so that is good
anyway thanks for your help i will see if ican find the relay
Is the top operated by hydraulics or linear actuators.?
Check for power at the pump (hydraulic) or motor (linear actuator)
See if there is a company name or model number on the control module. If so you maybe able to find the wiring diagram for it on the internet.
Pictures would help of the piston tubes your talking about.
If its an linear actuator system, then its all one unit.(lifting strut and motor)
If its hydraulic the lifting strut will have 2 hydraulic lines going to it and those run from the pump to the lifting strut. The pump is often place up front under the hood/bonnet.
If you have the hydraulic style system its also a possibility that the pump went bad.
Again pictures would help.
Subaru conversions are nice. I think you have a good starting point there for a project.
The hydraulic pump is almost always under the front hood/in the front trunk. It’s usually a cylindrical pump that’s a little bigger than a big coffee thermos. Somewhere fairly near that pump should be two relays that provide power to it. They might be shaped like cubes, but more often than not the builders probably used a pair of starter relays which look like cylinders (about the size of a D cell battery) with four wire posts sticking out. Usually you can get the top to open by using jumper cables to energize the big posts on one relay or the other. (One will be for “up,” one will be for “down.”)
Here is a picture of a typical starter relay.
Forgive me if any of that is overly simplified. I hope some part of it is helpful.
Just a guess but is that an air tank in picture #3399 ?
I see in picture #3397 there is an air pump(right side of picture) thats normally used for a horn. Does the discharge line of that go to a horn or to that tank.
i think you are correct i believe it is for air horns not sure if they work
i can see the horns in the front wheel well but i would need to get the wheel off to check if that is all it is doing
i may have a look tomorrow
also in picture 3399 that is the right side of car and pic 3397 the air pump is on the left side of the car
Yes I did notice that. Hence my reference to the picture and not the car.
I would trace the line back that feeds the lifting strut and find out where that goes. Maybe that would tell you more of how the system operates.
