Question about 2009 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder

Open Question

With the convertible top up and locked the warning light is lit and sounding an alarm. Have tried to fully open and close the top but cannot get the system to recognize the top is fully closed and secure. Any thoughts? 2009 Eclipse.

SOURCE: Convertible top on 98 mitsubishi eclipse spyder will not retract

There are 2 motors in the back located behind the speaker pannels on each side of the back seat. fist make sure they are both working. second there is a switch inside your trunk on the drivers side loceted behind the trim pannel to the tail light to switch from motors to manual top removal. third if your still lost the suport bar closest to the front of the top (not the one against the window with the clips) but the silver one has 2 smal black piviting bars on each end that sometimes get stuck try manualy removing the top and pushing that bar to the back of the car. Hope this helps you

SOURCE: Hi everyone. I just got my Eclipse spyder 08

Run the top so the decklid opens, and down inside the top stow area there is a ~3" square access door for manual operation of the pump. Make sure the valve is tight!

I have seen many many 2008s that were never tightened enough from the factory.

SOURCE: My 2007 Mitsubishi Spyder Convertible

it sounds like your motor that opens and closes the top might be going out. with the motor going out it will not send the signal that the top is closed. get the motor for the top checked with a volt meter to see how much power is going to it. if theres a problem with the wiring and its not getting enough power to it, it wouldnt work properly. if it does have enough power goin to it then your motor might be going bad. hope this helps

Hyundai accent 5DR 2005 car alarm keeps going off..


It sounds to me all you need is to adjust the trunk hatch. Its going out when you hit the brakes so the switch isn't bad. It may be worn but if you can push on it and the light goes out it is the reason your alarm is going off. Make sure there isn't debris under the rubber seal preventing it from fully closing.

2004 vw beetle drivers side window does not work with key fob or door switch and does not go down slightly when door is open or convertible top is lowered. all other windows work. door locks will not work...


Open the drivers side door and see if you can peel back the covering on the wires going into the door. Sometimes from opening and closing the door so much 1 or more of the wires break or rub bear and contact each other or something else. Check if all the wires are good.

Convertible top alarm alarms when top is down when i stop n start


I believe the Qs - which is found many place is for when the top is open.
My selection of answers that make some sense, although I haven't gotten mine to stop, except for a little while yet!
Make sure the arm that you pull and twist to unlock is totally fully clicked back in it's holder before opening. There is definately a sensor that says this is in the strong position .

In the bow next to that mechanisim (near a securing spot) there is a sensor that goes bad. (One of the more common reasonable sounding answers (found above too) - especially as the car ages - it seems 5+ years and one can imagine where it is gets a bit rusted).

Same idea as above - and because of what it is - the sensor is just dirty and confused. Try cleaning with something that does not leave a residue.

Again the idea above, but with better - where and how. (This just sounds like the million $ answer for most): There is a small switch where, when closing and securing the top, it triggers the flaps to close. Location: passenger side windshield frame. What to do (might move the seat back and stand up). Place your pinky finger pointing in toward the driver's side and you will feel a little metal switch. You should be able to lift this up and down with your finger. Get some electrical grease and coat the switch as best you can. The problem is that a great deal of road grime accumulates and covers the switch.

Assorted suggestions to disconnect the buzzer or electrical: All bad. These cars like most modern ones have computer checks that do NOT take well to any override.

Clean all the seat buckle connectors. The top has sensors for these too. Maybe has greese on it?
The dual key turn in the drivers door to unlock fixes alarm problems like this in many cars.

Auto tailgate warning light is on dash board but tailgate closed.


I have a similar problem, my tailgate stopped working with the outside handle and the remote but can be opened manually from the inside. I don't have an alarm so there is no problem with that but did you get a solution for the tailgate problem that I could try?

When the roof is open, the warning light won't go out.


I know that when you lower the top, you have to hold the button up for several seconds after the top is completely lowered in order for the locks to engage. The top motor will still run and when it is finished, you will hear a "ding". to indicate it is fully down. The error will go away and your temp will show up again. I had to call the dealer to find this out.
