Question about 2001 Audi TT
Hi. I've had the dealer replace the sensor for the convertible top a few times now. Tired of spending so much each time it happens.
Problem: the convertible top "icon" keeps flashing even when the top is up and closed, and the windows don't function properly (don't go up all the way, car has to be turned off/on to get them to go up, etc.)
Do you know what part (sensor?) causes this, and how I can repair/replace it myself?
Thank you for any and all help!
Mine has did this also! I put a rubber peice at the end of the left top latch hook and it applies enough pressuer to active the switch to show that the top is closed

I have a 2001 Audi TT and the dealer wanted a couple of hundred dollars to adjust the sensors. I found on another forum that if after you close the top and lock the latch just push on the driver side of the latch with the palm of your hand. The ICON on the dash will go out and the windows will close all the way. I have been doing this for about a year.

You can also superglue a piece of tin metal on the small sensor plte itself (driver side)and the latch will then push the swith closed . (permanent solution)

Yeah, me too. In fact, I think it is the instrument cluster. I say this b/c I became part of a class action lawsuit when a lawyer contacted me. Turns out there are quite a few enough people that have not only this problem, but there all the lights come on in the cluster. This is what happens to me on a damp day. The whole panel lights up like an X-mas tree and my soft top light is on all the time.
