SOURCE: 2000 chrysler sebring convertable top will go down but will not

Typically, when when this happens, the system is low on fluid and/or must be bled. Here are the procedures:
Lower the top to the full down position.

  1. Remove the rear seat cushion, seat back and inner quarter trim panels. Pull up sharply on the seat cushion at the front about midway between the middle of the seat and the outside edges. The seat back is held in by nuts. The quarter trim panels are held in by screws I think.
  2. Remove the cylinder mounting brackets and remove the cylinders from the trunnion pivot mounts.
  3. Rotate the cylinders 180 degrees (the hose fittings will now face to front of the vehicle.
  4. Disconnect the motor/pump retaining clips from the body.
  5. Rotate and raise the motor/pump assembly so the reservoir is in the up position. The rubber filler plug will be at the top.
  6. Raise motor/pump fitting to at least 2 inches above the horizontal rear seat back reinforcement.
  7. Tilt the motor/pump assembly to approximately the 10 o'clock position, with the rubber filler plug still at the top CAUTION: THE MOTOR/PUMP ASSEMBLY MUST REMAIN IN THE CURRENT POSITION UNTIL THE RUBBER FILLER PLUG IS REINSTALLED IN THE Step 12.
  8. Remove the rubber fill plug from reservoir.
  9. Fill the hydraulic system by adding Dexron 2 Automatic Transmission Fluid to the bottom of the fill hole CAUTION: DO NOT OPERATE THE TOP SWITCH IN THE UP (CLOSING THE TOP) DIRECTION.
  10. With two people, activate the top switch in the down (opening the top) position to fully retract the cylinder rods and hold for approximately 5 seconds, until the motor/pump stalls. A percolating or gurgle sound/feeling is an indication that the procedure is working.
  11. Top off the motor/pump with Dexron 2 and insert the filler plug.
  12. Install the motor/pump assembly into the vehicle mounting bracket.
  13. Rotate the cylinders back to the original position (hose fitting rearward)
  14. Install the motor/pump lead and hydraulic line clips (the hydraulic line clips are to assist in the production process) to ensure that the seat back/seat cushion do not pinch the lines. If the sticky side is no longer holding to the floor pan, the clips can be left off.
  15. Ensure that the bushing is still on the trunnion pivot mount and bracket. Tap the top switch in (raising the top) to get the cylinder trunnion onto the trunnion pivot mounts, if needed.
  16. Install cylinder mounting brackets.
  17. Raise and lower the top to ensure proper operation.
  18. Install the inner quarter panels, and the rear seat back and cushion.
  19. And Just a fair warning here - you WILL spill fluid inside your car. If you manage not to, I want to know how. I cover everything with garbage bags because there have been a few instances where I accidentally hit the button the wrong way and that stuff went EVERYWHERE. Be careful and good luck.

SOURCE: vw convertable top

There are two strings in your top...they are red I believe...look down inside the sides of the top...pull them up to release the tension on the top....then open your trunk lid and on the left side there is a little switch turn it counter clockwise then you should be able to release your top and put it up manually....then latch it into place...then go back to your trunk and turn the switch back....it should work fine

2008 Chrysler Sebring hard top convertible goes halfway back to open then stops in the middle of the cycle.


There are many possible causes of this problem on the convertible Sebrings, the most common problems are as follows;

1) The cargo platform in the trunk is in the wrong position which blocks the rear window from folding downward. Ensure that the cargo platform is in the down position before attempting to operate the top.
2) The Hydraulic pump is low on fluid, it is located in the trunk, in the left rear corner, underneath the carpet. Inspect the fluid level in the reservoir.
3) There is an electrical fault in the system.
4) There is physical damage to one of the panel pivots, inspect for panel binding while the top is moving.

A couple questions for you;

When the top stops moving can you still hear the pump running or does it go quiet?

When the top stops moving does the cluster display "convertible top in operation" or "convertible top malfunction" or something else?

Report back with anything you find or if you need further help.

I have a 2000 Sebring convertable. I have lost


Sounds like a grounding issue.

You will need a wiring diagram and someone who is good with a multimeter to run it down.

The three systems you identified are all fused from the same location. Which should make running down the bad ground wire a little easier.

Good luck and as always be careful!
