Question about 1999 Chrysler Sebring

Sebring convertible top won't work

It started getting slow going up and down, then stopped completely. After a minute or two I was able to hit the button and it went back up--now I'm afraid to try it.

You are probably low on hydraulic (ATF) fluid.
Check the lines and cylinders for leaks. Replace any leaking lines or cylinders. Always replace them in pairs.
When the leak is fixed...
Behind the rear seat is the motor/pump/reservoir.
With the top down, fill the reservoir with ATF.
Cycle the system a few times.
Repeat till the reservoir will accept no more fluid.
You can change it to a manual top by removing the bolt at the top of the cylinders and lowering the both shafts down into the cylinders.

2008 chrysler seabring convertible top is stuck


The top is operated by a electrically driven hydraulic pump, so more then likely you have a loss of fluid due to a leaking hose or cylinder and this lowers the system pressure and causes the top to stop functioning.

How to make my convertible top come up without assistance?


If it will go down completely,it won't need fluid.And needing 2 people just to put the top back up can be a problem if it's about to rain.Sounds like the pump is weak from use and needs replaced,and it needs all the power when folded.Rather than replace the hydraulic pump,first oil the joints with a light spray lubricant and see if it will work.Those joints may be worn and binding when folded.Kinda like your grandpas knees,he needs help getting up from a crouched position.

2010 sebring convertible top won't go down


when you are looking at the motor to your top, on the right side were the wires are coming out of the end. you need to tack that off, you only need that little piece on the inside of that cap is where the problem lies. cheap workmanship there are to fuses and two wires that create a path for current to bring power from your relay (basically it is built very weak, and with age and wear the already cheap weak wired motor wires come loose)there are two wires can anybody guess what for? that's right up and down....so if you have tried everything and can't seem to understand why it still doesn't work I asure you this is the problem

Check the front brake disks for warping and pad condition for wear.
You won't usually be able to see warping with your eye, and may need a measuring device.

2003 kia sorento keeps slowing down to a stop but doesnt cut off.I have to wait before I press on gas again.


I can't see the T/Belt giveing that problem however if the T/Belt is due it should be done ASAP because if the belt breaks it can cause pistons to hit valves (Very expensive to fix) but could be the catalytic converter or a number of other things. My thought would be to undo the o2 sensor in the exhaust & run car this will allow exhaust to escape without going through the catalyst. If car stops slowing to a stop you know that the catalyst is blocked. Or remove the catalitic converter & look through it it should look like honey comb you can see through. P.S your car posibly won't go without the o2 sensor in.

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.
