Look under the back seat to see if there is any oil . Sometimes the hydrolic rams that move the top will leak fluid. If there is oil refill the fluid may help get the top open, but the ram will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: The convertible roof leaks and also needs a

If you need a manual, you need a factory manual. Aftermarket manuals seldom address the convertible top.
Convertible tops seldom leak till they are 5-6 yrars old unless the material is defective.
Your problem is probably weatherstrips.
Either they are damaged or out of place.
Door window adjustment will also cause a leak at the weatherstrip.
If the water is in the rear of the car, you probably have plugged drains.
Convertibles leak at the rear from new. there is a gutter that directs the water to drain holes near the rear wheels. If the drains get plugged, the water will seep into the rear carpet or trunk.
Solution...clear the drains.

SOURCE: 2002 Chrysler Sebring Convertible - Trunk lid will not stay open

All gas charged supports are not created equal. I recommend using O.E. for this application.
Snow,ice and trapped water make the lid heavier than it should be make sure these are not the issue.

If you're not hearing a click from the starter check for a starter relay. May be burned out! DO you hear the fuel pump kick in when you turn the key on? If not something might have triggered your security system and locked you out!

2008 Chrysler Sebring hard top convertible goes halfway back to open then stops in the middle of the cycle.


There are many possible causes of this problem on the convertible Sebrings, the most common problems are as follows;

1) The cargo platform in the trunk is in the wrong position which blocks the rear window from folding downward. Ensure that the cargo platform is in the down position before attempting to operate the top.
2) The Hydraulic pump is low on fluid, it is located in the trunk, in the left rear corner, underneath the carpet. Inspect the fluid level in the reservoir.
3) There is an electrical fault in the system.
4) There is physical damage to one of the panel pivots, inspect for panel binding while the top is moving.

A couple questions for you;

When the top stops moving can you still hear the pump running or does it go quiet?

When the top stops moving does the cluster display "convertible top in operation" or "convertible top malfunction" or something else?

Report back with anything you find or if you need further help.

Why is there an intermittent loud hissing noise from engine compartment, usually just after startup?


You just hear it better if you lower the roof or open your windows. It could just be your air intake. Unless your rpm`s are really racing to above 2500 or it is at high idle for a long time, you shouldn't kick it down. When it is cold your choke is helping to warm it up quickly. Nothing is really working properly until it reaches normal operating temperature. Let it warm up. If you are still concerned, listen under the hood for better perspective and when in doubt, take it to a professional.

Why won't Convertible top won't go down 08 Sebring


the humming is the motor trying to open roof , the windows dropping is a normal part of the operation , without seeing the vehicle it's difficult to be exact but unless there is a latch /lever that has to be pulled prior to pressing the switch i'd recommend getting a auto electrician to look at it , could just be a relay not powering up enough keep me posted if you wish

try to reach up under the front of the car with your arm and try to locate the latch with the hood release cable attached to it. Use your fingers or plyers to manipulate the latch to release-pull on the cable. You may have to remove the grill to access it.

1996 sebring convertable wont start without jump but when it does start it knocks and gurgglesthen dies


Hi Mike, Im glad to help!

Mike if you haven't already done so. My first repair on this car would be a battery replacement and check the charging system for proper operation. WHY? Because if the computer and all the relays are not getting the proper 12 volts then the car will not run properly. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Mike.

My 2008 Chrysler Sebring Limited convertible has a problem with the trunk latch. It won't stay closed. It keeps unlatching. Do you know what the problem is? How do I get it to stop unlatching?


I did this to my car once. Be sure the latch isn't closed as you are trying to close the trunk. With the trunk open pop the trunk once, then see if the trunk latches properly.

You probably have either a hole in the floorboard or the gromet that seals the e-brake cable is worn out or fallen out. Also a possible culprit is the gromets under the hood on the firewall.
