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.

Trunk won,t open so I can get to boot to open mu gas tank


Have you checked the fuse panel for blown fuses? If not, check there first. If so, check to be sure all the wiring harnesses in and around the fuse panel are tight ans secure. If you're really in a pinch and you have rear folding seats you can crawl into the trunk that way.

Convertible top doesn't open all the way


first let the system cool down if you try to open it and it was blocked by those hats because the hydraulic system have some thermal sensors .if after 30 minutes is still not working check the level of hydraulic oil (not the one from the steering ) i must be somewhere in the back of your car depending the model .U can also try to help a little with your hand but don`t apply extreme force ,just help it on the move especially on the last part where is not working well

I have a 2004 convertable beetle and I have had nothing but problems. When I try to put the top down it won't lock into place. When I get frustrated with it I just want to put the top back up and it...


I can not stop my car from dinging every time I put on the breaks. The sensor for the top is flashing but i know the top is closed. I need to find someone that knows how to disconnect the wire.

Top worked fine yesterday but today tried to let down only clicked


It is a hydraulic pump that applies pressure to the 2 hydraulic pistons to raise & lower the top. So, check for something obstructing movement first.

The convertible top:
  • is motor-driven.
  • requires parking brake engaged to complete circuit for operation.
  • is equipped with a back window glass (42006) . The back window glass is permanently attached to the folding top back window curtain (52500) and cannot be opened.

1999, 93 convertible top starts to open or close sid beeps.


sounds like somethings preventing it from closing properly. Check it well worst case you need a new convertable module. Cost money but better then buying a new top

Convertible top will not close /open


I have had this problem with my 2005 S4 Cab - sometimes the top will not latch. I have found that this was because the fabric near the rear passenger window was not folding into place over the steel structure. I just back up the top and made sure the fabric unfolded and all was well.
