    I have the same problem with my 1995 saab se top. When I try to lower the top, the display lcd shows the message; Trunk lid open or Close trunk. The trunk is ALWAYS closed and latched properly. Can anyone tell me HOW or WHAT to check to RESOLVE THIS PROBLEM?

Could be a microswitch problem, You will need a Tech2 diagnostic tool to figure this out

Convertable not so fun when the top doesnt operate? Haha.

It seems that my 2005 Lexus ES330 trunk light won't turn off. How to check whether the trunk light is off when the trunk lid is close?


Remove the bulb if you think it runs the battery down. the switch is part of the latch assembly of the trunk.

Convertible top does not operate; information: "close luggage compartment" while it is obviously closed. Attempt to insert an extra spacer between the trunk lid hook and the switch lever does not help. EOS...


the micro switch inside the trunk latch is probably faulty.try manually closing the latch on the trunk with a screw driver[dont hurt yourself] and see if the information display recognises the trunk is closed.also does the boot light go off?if not replace the boot lock...good luck

1999, 93 convertible top starts to open or close sid beeps.


sounds like somethings preventing it from closing properly. Check it well worst case you need a new convertable module. Cost money but better then buying a new top

Check trunk lid warning light comes on even though it is closed


Hi there,

Most likely that the trunk switch has either moved (needs adjusting/tightening) or is faulty.

Have someone test the swicth terminals for continuity. Replace if faulty.

Cheers,

I just went through HELL because my top would not go down! I did EVERY possible solution with NO AVAIL! So anyway, Im in the trunk and noticed a baggy sack hanging in the trunk.. So I figured it was for the roof.. Anyway the sack has 2 straps to hold it up for more room when the top is UP. So I said "I Wonder...." I released the straps and the bag hung again, and GUESS WHAT? Yea the roof works!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1996 Saab 900 S Convertable Will not open/close


there are a few reasons that this might be happening but first i would check the compartment where the top is store when down. There are sensors that tell the car if the compartment is ready for use and if the compartment is being obstrcuted you would get that code. email me at Monster50s@yahoo.com if this does not work I may be abloe to help you futher.
