Convertible Top Question (1995 GT Convertible)

I picked up a '95 convertible to work on with my daughter. The top doesn't go up or down, but the emergency brake light comes on in the dash, and when pressing the button I get clicks from the relays. I also pulled the plug going to the pump (two prong, grey connector) and can measure 12V on the relay side of it when pressing the button. To me this looks like a a bad pump, but I wanted to check with you guys in case there's something else that could be going wrong here that I'm over-looking.

My 01 developed a leak in one of the rams and eventually lost all the fluid. However, the pump still "pumped" with the switch. It's also possible the PO lost the fluid and then burned up the pump trying to raise the top (they are very heavy and resist manual effort). Swapping pumps is not hard but it does take patience. I think you're going to need to take out the rear seats and remove the pump for diagnosis.
