Convertible top will not come up

2001 porsche carrera 4 the retractable top will not come back up. the light flashes on the dash when button is depressed. we have had the car for 5 months and have followed the proceedure for raising & lowering the top lots of times, this time did not work. the only difference was last time it was lowered the light remained on, on the dash, so depressed the button again & the light went out. would ihe flashing light be an error message on the dash or perhaps a mechanical problems which needs servicing. have checked the fuses, all ok.

SOURCE: olio carrera 4s porsche

Usually the specs are located in the owners manual. It tells you the grade and amount of oil required on an oil change. If the specs are not in the owners manual, you can look at the oil fill port on the engine and normally has the recommended grade of oil. Otherwise, see if you can get your hands on a service manual. Good Luck.22

Porsche parking brake light and convertible top

you should be able to get to the ebrake switch by the e brake lever. If you can, to get top up you can cross the two wires going to the switch together and get the top up normally with switch. If this turns the parking brake indicator on on the dash, then order yourself a new switch and replace.
