Any noises at all, like the motors trying to move it? Or is just nothing happening at all?



I've heard of other vert owners disconnecting their motors and raising/lowering the top by hand, but I don't know how that'd done.

there are manual cranks on the motors just like the headlights have. Not sure of the exact location though as ive never had to use it myself. however with it not beeping i wonder if either the dash switch or safety switch could be the culprit. This is one of those things you just have to start testing things to narrow the options. I know the ebrake must be up to operate the top id check that switch first.
