There is no convertible top that doesn't do this. This is caused by the spring action of the tops fabric, pull it down and and latch it, if you can't do that then the top cloth has shrunk and you will need the top replaced.

There are 2 motors in the back located behind the speaker pannels on each side of the back seat. fist make sure they are both working. second there is a switch inside your trunk on the drivers side loceted behind the trim pannel to the tail light to switch from motors to manual top removal. third if your still lost the suport bar closest to the front of the top (not the one against the window with the clips) but the silver one has 2 smal black piviting bars on each end that sometimes get stuck try manualy removing the top and pushing that bar to the back of the car. Hope this helps you

SOURCE: convertible top will not close /open

I have had this problem with my 2005 S4 Cab - sometimes the top will not latch. I have found that this was because the fabric near the rear passenger window was not folding into place over the steel structure. I just back up the top and made sure the fabric unfolded and all was well.

Nissan altima sunroof wont close all the way. It closes, but the rear of the window doesnt lift to create the seal at the back of the window. Any suggestions?


hi,
With the car OFF and sunroof OPEN inspect all around the sunroof's frame. If nothing found that might be in the way (rocks, twigs, etc.), turn on the car CLOSE the sunroof and see if you can push it UP while closing to 'help it'. If it works, I'd just leave it closed 'til you can take it to the dealer/shop to fix it.

2010 sebring convertible top won't go down


when you are looking at the motor to your top, on the right side were the wires are coming out of the end. you need to tack that off, you only need that little piece on the inside of that cap is where the problem lies. cheap workmanship there are to fuses and two wires that create a path for current to bring power from your relay (basically it is built very weak, and with age and wear the already cheap weak wired motor wires come loose)there are two wires can anybody guess what for? that's right up and down....so if you have tried everything and can't seem to understand why it still doesn't work I asure you this is the problem

Beetle servo motor stuck


All operations are handled by the convertible top control module. Assuming everything else works except the roof lock(s), the control module may not be getting the right inputs for locking. The convertible top operation switch could be defective or the top open/closed position switches could be defective or the linkage flap position sensors could be defective and finally, there could be a mechanical problem

unfortually the dealer may be your only option. these tops are very difficult to check out and repair. when this messgae comes up, it will require a GM tech 2 scan tool to isolate the problem, this top has several latches and several micro switches. any one of the latches or micro switches can cause this message. the scan tool can monitor the latch and switches operations to isolate which one is at fault. in most cases it is one of the front three that causes the problem
