SOURCE: 2002 Chrysler Sebring Convertible - Trunk lid will not stay open

All gas charged supports are not created equal. I recommend using O.E. for this application.
Snow,ice and trapped water make the lid heavier than it should be make sure these are not the issue.

I believe it's electric. It sounds like the motor is going bad. In theory, it would be harder for the motor to lift it, than it would to lower it.

I hope this helps

2008 Chrysler Sebring hard top convertible goes halfway back to open then stops in the middle of the cycle.


There are many possible causes of this problem on the convertible Sebrings, the most common problems are as follows;

1) The cargo platform in the trunk is in the wrong position which blocks the rear window from folding downward. Ensure that the cargo platform is in the down position before attempting to operate the top.
2) The Hydraulic pump is low on fluid, it is located in the trunk, in the left rear corner, underneath the carpet. Inspect the fluid level in the reservoir.
3) There is an electrical fault in the system.
4) There is physical damage to one of the panel pivots, inspect for panel binding while the top is moving.

A couple questions for you;

When the top stops moving can you still hear the pump running or does it go quiet?

When the top stops moving does the cluster display "convertible top in operation" or "convertible top malfunction" or something else?

Report back with anything you find or if you need further help.

I have G6 convertible sensor "top not secure" warning on panel. However secure and working. The hard top just stopped opening. Please advise Deborah


Hi Deborah , Your going to have to take to the dealer , there is a DTC - diagnostic trouble code stored in the ( FTC ) folding top control module . Such as this one DTC B1296
S14 is the Folding Top Front Latch Actuator Position switch. The Folding Top Control (FTC) Module uses S14 to determine when the top is latched in both the open and closed positions. S14 closes and pulls the signal circuit low when the top is latched.
DTC 1296 01: Movable Roof Header Unlatched Sensor Circuit short to battery

DTC 1296 06: Movable Roof Header Unlatched Sensor Circuit short to ground or open

DTC 1296 58: Movable Roof Header Unlatched Sensor Circuit incorrect reaction after event

DTC 1296 59: Movable Roof Header Unlatched Sensor Circuit circuit/component protection time out

Circuit/System Description
S1 is the Folding Top Header Latch Cylinder Sensor. The Folding Top Control (FTC) Module uses S1 to determine if the Folding Top Header Latch Cylinder is in the latched or unlatched position. S1 is a hall effect sensor that becomes active when the cylinder is in the unlatched position.

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

The trunk of my 2007 Eos convertible won't close


i havent ever had this problem but i'm familiar with the eos so i can say almost undoubtedly that the you have a bad trunk latch. there is a switch in the trunk latch that tells it if it's closed or open and i'm guessing that the switch is bad. once the switch tells the car that the trunk is closed, it runs the motor that close the trunk fully.

however, i say again that i've never had this problem on an eos so there is a fair amount of room for other issues. volkswagens are rather complicate and use a lot of different switches and such in the convertible top. also, the only way to know for sure is to bring your vehicle to the vw dealer becuase only the vw 5051 scan tool is capable of reading the inputs and outputs of the convertible top control module and this is what is required to properly diagnose the problem. don't waste your time throwing parts at it, the dealer should be able to give you a 100% positive diagnosis with one hours labor (about $90)

Trunk,backend of car stuck in up position


My 2007 EOS stops with the truck up in the air, going up or down, when the temperature is very hot. The manual says if the hydraulic fluid gets too hot, you must wait for it to cool. I find this unsatisfactory as I live in a very hot state. I had it in the shop several times, then found this in the manual, and took it in again last week; the service manager at the dealer says he has seen reports of this, but there is not solution that he knows of. I am contracting the National Headquarters this week, and then an attorney if they do not remedy it as I only have a few more months of warranty to work with them....hope this helps.

The convertible top is controlled by 2 electric motors. One for each side, located in the back corners near the rear 1/4 windows. Check 30A PWR ACC fuse in the panel left end dash panel. Convertible top switch located in center overhead by rear\view mirror. Make sure BYPASS switch L/R trunk is in NORMAL position. There is also a RELAY for the conv top in the R/R trunk. Hope this helps.
