I just got a 1964 thunderbird and I’m having problem with the top. Does not go down when I hit the switch you can hear a relay click but that’s about it. I been trying to work it with a power pro and check power cable on the relays. The car it’s been sitting for 20 years I done everything to get the car running already but the top keeps giving me a headache. Any suggestions,is anyone in Plantation fl or close that could help me fix it
