SOURCE: top won't go down, sometines it won't go up

I have seen this problem many times. One of your microswitches is either giving a false reading or fell of its retaining bracket. It is much easier to diagnose with a scan tool. My first guess would be that your retractable cover in the trunk lost it's switch input. Check the switch that is contacted when your cover is pulled out. If that is o.k. look inside the hard top deck lid cover very carefully and you will probably see either a broken wire or a loose switch. You may have to manually close your top becuse the switch inputs are illogical. Your manual will tell you how to close your roof.

See if the trunk has springs or metal rods that can be adjusted, like a garage door spring. Or, if it has gas struts, see if there is a stronger strut for a Sebring with a spoiler on the deck lid. It will be stronger to lift the heavier deck lid.

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.

Chrysler sebring roof wont open


Look under the back seat to see if there is any oil . Sometimes the hydrolic rams that move the top will leak fluid. If there is oil refill the fluid may help get the top open, but the ram will need to be replaced.

2008 sebring convertible when top is up trunk will not close


Mine took several hard slams to latch, with top up or down. Finally got dealer to adjust the latch which they originally said wasn't possible. Wore grooves into the latch rod while it was out of adustment, but at least now it closes.
