Default Top Wont Go Up

My radio, windows and top motor don t work. I banged the glove box a couple of times and now every thing works. I'm taking the BCM out this weekend and checking the joints. Is there a manual way to raise the top and close the windows?

Is there a common fuse for these? I don't know of a way to manually raise the window without taking the door panel off. Not sure about the top, but I believe there is a valve near the pump that may be turned to allow the top to be raised manually. Should do a search.

There is an opening panel on top of the pump under the cd changer. Turn the **** on top to release the pump pressure and the top operates manually.

when my top wouldnt go up properly i pushed the button & could hear electronics trying but top refused to go up. finally a shop knew it was a little flap of carpet in the trunk on the left side , flip that up & turn the valve. that fixed mine. hope that helps but losing power to top & windows was not my issue so goodluck.
