Question about 1989 Porsche 911 Turbo
The power convertible on my 1989 Cabriolet seems to have a short or lose wire that makes the top inoperable. The red indicator lite on the dash flashes when I hit a bump and if the indicator light is on the top works, no light and the top doesn't work.
I'm assuming there is a sensor that must activate the indicator light and I'm thinking there must be a bad connection at the sensor. Can anyone provide insights as to what and where to check to troubleshoot?

The sensors stop it becos there is a problem,.to prevent further damage. The tops are not reliable, and it could be one of a number of problems. The early cables stretch, then only one side is driven and it jams. The plastic balls (red) alos break or come off. Look at Rennsport technical forums amd you will find the answers you need.

Don' try this yourself unless you are VERY confident... I have seen many $500 kits RUINED by amateurs... Go to a shop that has proven experience with Cabrio tops, they are tricky to get just right!
