The soft top control module should reset every time the ignition switch is off and the key is pulled out. There are two types of flashes. If the switch flashes fast it means the luggage cover in the trunk is not in place. If the light flashes slow it means there is an electrical problem. Meaning the control module is not seeing one of the micro-switches in the correct position. You can try manually opening and closing the soft top by locating the pressure relief screw in the back of the trunk. There will be a little flap of carpet towards the left center. Use a flat blade screwdriver to turn the bleeder screw to the left. This allows the hydraulic fluid to bypass the pump so that the top can be moved manually. You will need a 5mm allen to unlock/lock the latches.. Double check in the owners manual there might be illustrations I can't remember for sure if it does or doesn't.

Flashing top light 2008 vw convertible


Make sure you hear the beep after the top is down. The beep indicates the top is in full resting position. If you don't hold the button until you hear the beep, the light will continue to flash.

On my 1998 mercedes benz sl600 i cant get the convertable top to open. i have replaced two of the struts for the roof and now my roof wont open. is there a way to resync the roof or am i just doing so


The top is controlled by you guessed it a computer module, have the dealer test that with a scan tool. The top is very complex in the control end, not simple like the old Mustangs I used to fix

I had the top replaced on my 1997 3 series BMW convertable. and now it wont open all the way. I press the button to open an it goes through the 1st step of opening then the top gets stuck, it just stops....


Either have shop that redid your top or a BMW dealer, re-sync the power top motors. They do a literal "ballet" back there and if they are out of sync can twist your top. Have a specialist sync your top motors.

Convertible top switch works sometimes but other times it does not work


If the convertible top switch not working properly every-time.Then the switch and its electrical connections/wirings needs to be checked. The switch is typically located in the trunk, positioned right beside the covering of the left or right tail light. The switch should be set to automatic, not manual. If the switch is properly set, then other things are causing the problem. The other things blocking the top to move up and down is its hinges.If the hinges are bent or cracked or got loose then this can be the other reason. If the hinges are in good condition, then check the convertible top struts. These are the mechanisms that lift the convertible top. Lift struts deteriorate due to wear and tear and will need to be replaced if it's the source of the problem. Another very common reason for a not working convertible top is the worn out elastic straps. Furthermore, the convertible top's fuse could be blown out and as a result it's causing the convertible top to stop working. In newer latest models the convertible top is controlled by a single button conveniently located next to the handbrake. You press a button to release a center locking device - none of this moving the sun visors out of the way and releasing two latches on other sides of the car stuff! - then twist the device with its conveniently large handle. Then you press the button, and if you're lucky, it'll work the first time. If not, try it again! The temperature display goes from blue to yellow and shows a "convertible top opening" graphic, and the top opens up and neatly folds itself in back. You can release the button when it beeps again. Putting it back on again is the same basic process, though you have to wait for the beep, then press the latch release, twist it, pull down, then re-twist the latch again. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

2007 Mini Cooper Convertible top doesn't open all the way when I push the button.


The top down function is a two step process...1- hold button until sunroof is all the way open then release button. 2- Press and hold button again until top goes all the way down.

If you try this and it still doesn't work , note the light on the button. If it's flashing it indicates a fault... most likely an obstruction. Check that latches on rear cargo shelf are firmly latched. Check that parcel shelf is firmly down. (open and firmly close all three of these things and try again)


cheers
