Question about 2002 Maserati Spyder
Usually when I open the trunk the little 5w 12v light comes on and then "times out" after a specified time.... but today the light would not work. I removed the bulb and tested it with a ohm meter for continuity. It was still good. I put a new bulb in anyway... still does not work. I've closed and reopened the trunk... it still will not come on. The manual says the fuse that controls the trunk light also controls the cabin dome light.The cabin dome light works so it cannot be the fuse... what else could it be? A bad timer switch? A wire that is unplugged at the connector?

I must say that this car was very badly neglected by its previous owner(s).The problems i ha with it - fan relay failed, causing the motor to overheat, which warped the heads, resulting in my having to rebuild the engine. Alternator, horn, and front shocks have had to be replaced. Passenger door is starting to show significant rust. The windshield needs to be replaced because the laminate is spliting. Fuel filters were full of rust.

This is the sensor located at the front of the car that reads outside temperature. Quite often turbocharged vehicles use this measurement along with engine sensors to calculate safe boost pressure relative to conditions

Manual roof procedure
The procedure in the manual is just for closing the top.
A) Turn key to OFF for several seconds to bleed off hyd pressure.
B) Turn key to MAR (full electrical, but before start)
C) Remove cap on bulkhead behind the right-hand seat and use flat head screw driver to unfasten the hyd unit valve in order to relieve the oil pressure in the circuit.
D) Remove the cap on the bulkhead behind the left-hand seat and using screwdriver or allen wrench press until the top covering (panel behind roll bars that covers the convertible top well) until the panel's locks are released - you may have to tap the wrench to release the locks.
E) Lift the top covering manually and keep it open while extracting the top from its well.
F) Remove top from well until the front part is near the windshield frame.
G) Lift the rear part of top (rear window) upwards and lower the top covering until the hooks are resting on their respective locks.
H) While still keeping rear part of convertible top lifted upward press Button 1 to attach the top covering locks.
Button 1 is the forward one
Button 2 is the rear one.
I) Make sure locks are fastened. if not - try pushbutton 1 again. If necessary repeat D and H
J) Rest rear part of convertible top on top of covering.
K) At front of convertible top, open (deploy) the top's hooks by using allen wrench to turn the pin mechanism. (located in center of front headliner)
L) Press top unto windshield frame and use wrench to lock the hooks.
M) Press the rear of convertible top, so hooks on rear top insert into respective slots and press Button 2 to secure.
N) Keep Button 2 pressed until hooks properly fasten.
If the top is still tightly latched at the front, you can just start at step "G":
While holding the back of the top in the air, and the "top cover" resting down on its "hooks", press button 1 until it seats well.
Then lower the back of the top down to mate its "hooks" and press it down while holding button 2 until the top seats well.
