1964 Lincoln Continental Convertible problem!

Hello everyone,

The trunk lid will not open, so I cannot put the top down. I have also had problems with the top opening and closing. I'm hoping someone has had these problems before and have solved them. And can give me some advise. 

Thank you, in advance.  Gene

Hello and Welcome!!!

 

Oh boy oh boy, these Contis are so wonderful to have, but so extremely complicated.  There are a series of relays and hydraulic lines/pumps/rams and it's impossible to know what is keeping your trunk from opening without a deep dive into the diagnostic tree. 

 

It COULD BE a relay, but who really knows without a lot of disassembly and testing. The only advice I can give you that will actually help is to speak to John Cashman, because everyone has to talk to an expert sometimes: https://convertiblelincolns.com/

Thank you for your reply. It's much appreciated. I had numerous mechanics try to fix the problem, and sometimes the top worked for brief periods, but long.

I will email the 'expert' 

for his assistance! Thanks again!  Gene
