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

The electric motors on the top have shear pins located on the drive gear of the motor. It could be you sheared the pin. I have had the same problem and that was the fix for it.

My 2007 Mitsubishi Spyder Convertible top will not open. It appears to be completely closed and locked. Indicator light is on while driving and beeping indicating it is not closed.


it sounds like your motor that opens and closes the top might be going out. with the motor going out it will not send the signal that the top is closed. get the motor for the top checked with a volt meter to see how much power is going to it. if theres a problem with the wiring and its not getting enough power to it, it wouldnt work properly. if it does have enough power goin to it then your motor might be going bad. hope this helps

Having replaced the battery the convertible top will not close - computer reset error, coincidence or other?


changing the battery should not affect your conv. top ,the system runs on fluid pressure,have it checked at the dealership,2007 should still be under warranty-good luck

Unfortunately, this is not something you can fix yourself. You will need to take the car to either the dealer or a shop which specializes in fixing convertible tops, headliners, etc (commonly called an automotive trim shop) Most used car dealers have a trim shop that they can recommend.
