Convertible hood will not go down - 2000 Saab 9-3 Viggen

    When I toggle the convertible hood to go down, I get the 'check top' alert, but when I check around the car, nothing seems to be wrong. This alert only comes on once, then the toggle seems to not be working anymore. Seems like a fuse has blown.

The sensor for the latch may be shorted or water is in the sensor, the sensor is most likely attached to the hood latch and to verify that just look for wiring and the latch and follow it to the sensor for the hood latch.

Hood latch stuck wont let hood drop all the way down on a 2002 sebring convertible

spray wd-40 or any good lube into hood latch. find the arm inside the hood latch the cable connects to and manually move it towards the cable (long flat tip screwdriver works well). Your hood should shut now. may have to move back and forth several time to free up

How can i reset the power hood? it was working but because i manually took the hood down for tinting i cannot reset it

your hood alignment is more than likely off...the safety switch and strikers must be adjusted for the module to work properly...make sure that the hood at 1 mm lower than normal at the middle edges.Then unplug the negative terminal for 5 minutes then power her up...Hope this helps you my friend...

Noise under hood

Its likely your catalytic converter's heat shield that has come loose due to rust. Raise your car, and thread two or three large pipe clamps (the screw type) together. Wrap this assembly around the catalytic converter and tighten down. Hope this helps. Bilal Hassan Clarksville, MD

Where is hood latch on 99 Geo Tracker

It is in the glove compartment to keep theives from opening the hood and stealing the vehicle or engine parts. Since the vehicle is a Jeep-style convertible, the interior is not secure.

To open the hood do the following (I own a 1997)

open the glove box.
reach up and to the right and you will feel the handle.
Pull handle.

The hood will still look closed, so you have to lift up on the front of the hood and then push the internal release, whioch is in the middle of the front of the hood.

Could be 2 things...
THe nipple on the hood can be adjusted higher and lower to make a looser or tighter fit...
or the release cable can be tighted but a small clamp on the radiator core support check those 2 things first...
