The convertible top on our 2009 EOS is stuck open with the trunk lid up, the windows down and the sliding roof open (but we can get the sliding roof to close again). We have tried the emergency close procedures to no avail. When we restart the car, the message says "Cont. Convertible Top Operation," but when we try to get it to complete opening or close back up, it says, "System Fail Convertible Top Workshop." We cannot drive it to the dealer like it is. Is there anyway to reset the system from home so we can get it to the dealer tomorrow?

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.

Trunk light stays on how can I fix it. I tried closing the trunk didn't work


Could be the mercury switch is out of position. When trunk is raised, mercury flows to the end of switch an makes the circuit complete, turning the light on. When closed, mercury flows away from connection. If doesn't have a mercury switch, then must have a button staying out on the lid, or out of position that the closed trunk isn't depressing the button. This button is connected to a ground white ground wire to make a connection. Light always has power to it, but the button completes the circuit by connecting the ground when button it out with trunk open.

How to fix My 2006 Chrysler 300 trunk...it will not close. It just happened and not sure if a latch or something is stuck.


My Buick did this and I shot WD40 on all the working parts and used a screw driver to make the latch work Mine was stuck in the open position. Now it works. Some times if you don't use the trunk often the latch will seize up . It's good to lubricate all the working parts once in a while. I do my doors as well at least once or twice a year.

2010 Town & Country trunk won't shut


When you pull the trunk handle back towards yourself to open the trunk, it may be sticking in that position, so give the handle a tap to pop it back into its original position. Then shut the trunk and see if it has latched.

Trunk won't open


Lower the back seat and crawl into the trunk and see what the latch is doing when you activate the key fob. the trunk lid will have to be open to enable any repairs. Also an emergency release cable is probably visible (yellow handle) inside the trunk and will Open the trunk lid.

This is easy, first locate the top button on the center console but do not push yet, next the lever on the front off the top, reach your right hand up and grab lever and pull down and twist counter clock wise to unlock it, you may feel roof pop up a little then with roof unlocked push handle back into its slot, next is push button and hold, the roof will start to open and the trunk will start to open and the roof will store away i the trunk,, make sure trunk is empty at first use, then with the top down and trunk closed you are done, open the trunk just to look inside to see where the top goes, this is to make sure nothing gets in the way of the roof, i cant remember if area is blocked off or not but this is a good idea just so you know.
To close the roof you hit and hold the button and roof will come out of the trunk area automaticlly the roof will end up closed all you do is pull lever down then pull on lever to close roof all the way untwist lever and it will go into lock, you will feel this, once it is in the lock groove you will twist lever to the right to lock it, with it locked you then push lever back into its slot. good day

'91 LS400, trunk will not open. key will not turn, electric latch switch clicks but won't open. valet lock in open position. Tried 1) disconnect battery, reconnect battery, use switch, push down on...


If you hear the sound of the electric latch switch, then it's working but stuck somehow. Just put the key in the switch and turn it to the right and then pull up the trunk or ask someone to help you. it will open. I tried it today and it opened with me. It was stuck from inside by some kind of a broken plastic pieces. Just removed it and now it's working fine. good luck

The trunk will not close anymore. Husband thinks some kind of spring is missing.


I had the same problem on my 96 Cavalier and it ended up being something so stupid. With me, the latch to open it from inside would get stuck in the open position after pulling and needed to be pushed back down so that the trunk would remain closed. It wasnt blatently obvious as it was barely stuck up, but it was enough to prevent locking. Hope your problem is as easy to fix as mine was!
