    The current suggestion forces me to have the car towed! Isn't there a manual override which allows me to shut the trunk so that I can at least drive it as a convertible?

Unfortunately, there is no manual override. If the convertible top motor isn't engaging, check the fuse. If you have a blown fuse, replace it, then see if there is anything in the way or jamming the top and keeping it from going down, then have somebody work the switch while you assist the top back up.

Hello,
I would say it is not a problem which you can correct..it could probably be a problem in wirings of the Convertible top and thats the reason it affects the windows too,so better take it to a Mechanic who will completely correct it..Thank you..


Regards!!...

    Dont worry Please try the following which are the only step which could be done by a non-mechanic..



    First check fuses F7-5 amps, F27- 5 amps, F35-25 amps, and F43- 5 amps.




    Second, check the wires at the first bend of the soft top


    at the driver's side. If any is cut/frayed/damaged then repair it...



    Hope this helps you out!!..

    If the top cover gets stuck half of its way, used is because of a deformed part. The top getting stuck can blow the electric windows fuse, damage the motor and create additional problems on thhe electric windows system, that is probably the reason why your windows now get stuck as well.
    Try to find the problem on top cover, if you cannot find it go to a mechanic and have it fixed before you get more troubles.

My 350z Nissan convertible top wont close all the way to the trunk


Lubricate every single part that moves in the top frame all the hinge points, use a light oil like 3 in1. Wipe off the excess do not get it on the interior trim like seats and door panels. Move the top up an down a few times to work the oil in and then try putting it all the way down. Good luck

HEY GUYS MY 97 328I CONVERTIBLE WONT OPEN OR CLOSE THE TOP, AS RIGHT NOW IT IS IN CLOSE POSSITION BUT THE LIGHT KEEP ON BLINKING, i DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO ANY MORE COULD ANY BODY HELP ME?


Turn on the radio so the battery is engaged, or turn on the engine.

  • 2 Fold down the cargo partition in the trunk and lock it on both sides. If the cargo partition is not down, there will be no place in the trunk to store the convertible top.
  • 3 Press the convertible button forward to open the top. It's located under the circular control button on the consul. The button has a picture of a window with one arrow pointing up and another pointing down.
  • 4 Pull the convertible button backward to close the top.
  • 5 Use your key to open or close the top when you are outside of the BMW but still close to it. Press and hold the arrow button on top of your key to open the top. To close the top, press and hold the Lock button. The car does not need to be turned on to operate the top with the key.

    Convertible top won't go down on my 1998 bmw 323ic


    Sounds like the sensor has faulted or the pump has become disengaged. Usually when the light is flashing it's a sensor. You can check for a pinched line or low fluid also. There is a manual lock overide procedure to get the windows up, it's in you owners manual.
    Good luck...i hope this helps,

    I can't get my convertible top to go up or down, it is stuck half way. Is there a manual release for it?


    The convertible top motor and release lever are in the luggage compartment.
    From the Bentley manual, the following general procedure is suggested in order to close the top in an emergency situation.
    Main motor. To release the top linkage from the motor, lift the left corner of the rear seat to access emergency release handle.
    It is then possible to push the top manually to a near closed position. In case of the semi-automatic top, simply attach and lock the front latches.
    Front latches. Once the fully automatic convertible top has been released from the motor and manually pushed to near-closure, emergency latching of the top is possible by using the S-shaped hex key provided in the emergency tool kit(attached to the trunk lid underside).
    First, remove the the plastic cover over the latch motor in the front bow of the convertible top.
    Next, use the hex key from the tool box to crank the front latches shut.

    Trunk,backend of car stuck in up position


    My 2007 EOS stops with the truck up in the air, going up or down, when the temperature is very hot. The manual says if the hydraulic fluid gets too hot, you must wait for it to cool. I find this unsatisfactory as I live in a very hot state. I had it in the shop several times, then found this in the manual, and took it in again last week; the service manager at the dealer says he has seen reports of this, but there is not solution that he knows of. I am contracting the National Headquarters this week, and then an attorney if they do not remedy it as I only have a few more months of warranty to work with them....hope this helps.
