Hit that same button again in the rear compartment .

Lowering the top is simply a matter of placing the car in neutral, applying the emergency brake and pressing a small toggle switch between the seats. In a few seconds, the top is stowed neatly below a tonneau cover with the promise of open-air adventures just a paddle flick away.
----------

There is a manual override switch in the trunk. remove the driver side tail light cover in the trunk and you will see the switch. See if it's in the manual position, if so, flip it to the normal position. If this doesn't work check and see if the switch is ok. look in the trunk on the driver side under the small removable panel for a switch at the front of the compartment (after you remove the panel) it is the manual operation switch for the convertible top.

In the  trunk. If you look on the left hand side there should be a cover that can be removed...inside there is a switch that changes the convertible motor from manual to power.switch it to the power mode  there will be no problems. 
You may have to have the key in the "on" position to switch it over


Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Can not open trunk on a pontiac soltice. No clicking sound from remote or switch in glove box fuses are ok


The rear compartment lid release system consists of the following components:
• Body control module (BCM)
• Folding top cover actuator
• GMLAN serial data link
• Keyless entry transmitter
• Rear compartment lid ajar switch
• Rear compartment lid release actuator
• Rear compartment lid release switch
• Remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR)
• Trunk fuses
• Trunk release relay

Rear Compartment Lid Release System Operation
The rear compartment lid can be released by operating the rear compartment lid release switch or pressing the rear compartment lid release button on the keyless entry transmitter. When the rear compartment lid release switch is operated, the rear compartment lid release switch signal circuit to the body control module (BCM) is switched to ground. The BCM receives the rear compartment lid release switch input and applies ground to the trunk release relay control circuit. This energizes the trunk release relay coil, closing the switch side contacts, allowing battery voltage to be applied to the rear compartment lid release actuator and folding top cover actuator, releasing the buttresses and opening the rear compartment lid. Ground for the rear compartment lid release switch is provided at G300. The rear compartment lid ajar switch, rear compartment lid release actuator, and folding top cover actuator are provided ground at G301. The rear compartment lid will not release until the vehicle speed is zero and in park.

Do you know what DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are ?
DTC B3265 01 : Trunk Relay Output Short to Battery
DTC B3265 06 : Trunk Relay Output Short to Ground or Open

Do you know what a relay is an how it works ? TRUNK release relay located in the underhood fuse / relay box.

Need to reset the soft top on a maserati spyder


Manual roof procedure
The procedure in the manual is just for closing the top.
A) Turn key to OFF for several seconds to bleed off hyd pressure.
B) Turn key to MAR (full electrical, but before start)
C) Remove cap on bulkhead behind the right-hand seat and use flat head screw driver to unfasten the hyd unit valve in order to relieve the oil pressure in the circuit.
D) Remove the cap on the bulkhead behind the left-hand seat and using screwdriver or allen wrench press until the top covering (panel behind roll bars that covers the convertible top well) until the panel's locks are released - you may have to tap the wrench to release the locks.
E) Lift the top covering manually and keep it open while extracting the top from its well.
F) Remove top from well until the front part is near the windshield frame.
G) Lift the rear part of top (rear window) upwards and lower the top covering until the hooks are resting on their respective locks.
H) While still keeping rear part of convertible top lifted upward press Button 1 to attach the top covering locks.
Button 1 is the forward one
Button 2 is the rear one.
I) Make sure locks are fastened. if not - try pushbutton 1 again. If necessary repeat D and H
J) Rest rear part of convertible top on top of covering.
K) At front of convertible top, open (deploy) the top's hooks by using allen wrench to turn the pin mechanism. (located in center of front headliner)
L) Press top unto windshield frame and use wrench to lock the hooks.
M) Press the rear of convertible top, so hooks on rear top insert into respective slots and press Button 2 to secure.
N) Keep Button 2 pressed until hooks properly fasten.

If the top is still tightly latched at the front, you can just start at step "G":
While holding the back of the top in the air, and the "top cover" resting down on its "hooks", press button 1 until it seats well.
Then lower the back of the top down to mate its "hooks" and press it down while holding button 2 until the top seats well.

The 2 buttons for the emergencey hood reset in the glove box do not work at all - so when pressed do not work? Any ideas why


Are you sure they don't work,the forward one locks the hood cover and the rear locks the rear of the hood down on top of the cover. If there is no noise or movement then the fuse has most probably blown

What is the ambient temperature sensor on a 2002 Maserati spyder


This is the sensor located at the front of the car that reads outside temperature. Quite often turbocharged vehicles use this measurement along with engine sensors to calculate safe boost pressure relative to conditions
