I would suggest using something like a handle (cabinet or drawer handle) that you can screw into the inside of the top's frame so when she goes to close it she can use this as a means of more leverage to help pull it that last 2 inches so it can be latched down

See if the trunk has springs or metal rods that can be adjusted, like a garage door spring. Or, if it has gas struts, see if there is a stronger strut for a Sebring with a spoiler on the deck lid. It will be stronger to lift the heavier deck lid.

Chrysler Sebring 2004 Convertible Bad Battery Charge Problems


I would look at the alternator. I had a grand am that would do that to me, even with a brand new battery. The alternator output wasn't able to run the vehicle and charge the battery. Alternators are picky things, especially being in Canada (which I assume from the KM), the hot and cold cycles don't play nicely with the brushes and core. I'd have the alternator checked and replaced if needed.

The convertible top will not go up or down, although it sounds as if it wants to. Is there a way to manually raise/lower the convertible top?


There are 2 hydrolic rams that raise and lower your roof. You can just disconect them from the top, then manualy raise and lower the top. But it sounds more like your fluid level is low. Open your trunk and find the pump pull the plug and fill the resiorvor.

Lowering convertible top


There should be latches you have to pull first to unlock the top from the windshield. Pull down the sun visors, the handles should be under them. Then push the power top switch.

Convertible top closure


Alot of people cannot close these, I have seen it many times at the dealership. The only solution is to have a second person to assist. It simply is a bad design for anyone at any age.
