I have experienced this issue in the past with 95 Chrysler Le Baron Convertible . Found a short in the switch that controls top up , or down . Fixed that , and again happened out of the clear blue couple months later , and finally stopped working altogether . Here is what I know , and hopefully will help you . If you can hear the motor running when you push the switch , it's not the motor . Mechanics charge one hundred bucks an hour to track electrical short . Most lie , and say motor blown , and needs replaced . My motor could be accessed by removing back of back seat . Motor sat dead center . Two wires ran from motor to switch . Locate short between 2 places , and you are good to go . Time can loosen connection and pothole , etc . jars it in position , and stuck dead til tightened in place . Can test motor for power 1st to see if it's good . If you hear it , it's good . Good luck !
