Hi,

It you're getting fully closed, then getting the message you likely have a failure of the header latch motor, which locks the top down once it closes. Unfortunately there's no manual way of latching it. You'll need a Chrysler scan-tool to verify that this is the issue. I'm sorry to say I don't have a quick fix for this. We've seen quite a few failures on these, the only way to get the top closed is to replace the latch motor. I hate to say it, but you're going to have to get it into the dealer to get it fixed.

Are you sure there is nothing in the trunk, sitting in the area where the top retracts to? Commonly people place things in the front area of the trunk where the top sits causing issues. If the top isn't able to fully retract it will set codes disabling the top, Also if the panel that separates the two area's of the trunk is dislodged from the groove it sets in the top will be disabled as well. Just make sure everything appears to be in place in the trunk..

Another thing you can try is disconnecting the battery to clear the codes, this may allow the top to operate. Unfortunately without a scan-tool there's no way to tell what's stopping the top from operating.

Also Read the Manual and make sure, you are following the Correct Procedure.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Exactly what is the top doing...I can give some basic troubleshooting, but not knowing more symptoms, I am shooting in the dark here...having to make assumptions. Assuming that the motor is not operating at all...(The electric motor that powers your top), it could be a fuse, wiring, switch or the motor itself. These would be the first things to check. I want to know more, so I can assist more. Good Luck! I hope you find this very helpful!!

Chrysler Sebring 2008 convertible top malfunction message


As long as the trunk is open, It won't work. The top has it's own computer. Have the codes read. Takes a scanner. These have like 20 sensors and switches for the top and trunk. You can try to close the latch on the trunk with a screwdriver to get it to work. Another thing is there is a cover that pulls out . This has to be pulled out and latched in place. This will keep it from working also.

Why won't Convertible top won't go down 08 Sebring


the humming is the motor trying to open roof , the windows dropping is a normal part of the operation , without seeing the vehicle it's difficult to be exact but unless there is a latch /lever that has to be pulled prior to pressing the switch i'd recommend getting a auto electrician to look at it , could just be a relay not powering up enough keep me posted if you wish
