If nothing is jammed, do it at high noon when the sun can heat and expand the top. It may have shrunk after being down.

1997 Camaro SS, the converible top will not lock in the up position. It gets about 2 inches away, even when you pull down you can not get the roof to latch. I went out of town for a few weeks and left the...


Yes. When left in the convertible position the top seems to shrink a little. Have someone to push the top up button while you pull down on the top and try to latch one side. Passenger side usually works for me. After that you can latch the driver side. The less you leave the top in the boot the better.

2007 solstice has lots of wind noise with the top up


Tape various areas where you think the problem is then road test it to see if it made a difference. If so you will have to find some way to alter the wind travel. If not, get out and move the tape to another suspect area.
Good luck!

2005 Blazer key won't turn in the ignition


You may want to try to slightly push / pull your vehicle to take weight / tension off the transmission, which in turn will allow you to turn the steering wheel enough to see if the ignition switch can be turned.

94 nissan pickup latch wont open hood?


The hood latch cable pulls a lever over towards driver's side of car to open the hood. Pulling the lever releases the hood latch.
This is the lever that is not moving over far enough to release, and the one you need to get to. You are right to think of removing the grill. Is it easy to remove? Often, someone can lay underneath and reach up with a prying tool (a screwdriver) and push that lever over. But if it's too far to reach, or if it's obstructed by parts or support pieces, just remove the grill to reach the latch.
Good luck.

2007 350Z CONVERTIBLE TOP LIGHT STAYS ON WHEN TOP IS COMPLETELY SECURED.


MY 350Z ROADSTER HAD THE SAME PROBLEM CLOSED TOP ON SLANT CAUSING PROBLEMS W LATCH MECHANISM. IN THE THE RIGHTMOST LATCH IS A SWITCH WHICH NEEDS TO BE FULLY DEPRESSED BY THE END OF THE HOOK IF ITS NOT EVEN THOUGH EVERYTHING IS LOCKED LIGHT WILL STAY ON. IN MY CASE THE RUBBER COATING OVER HOOK HAD COME OFF. SOLUTION WAS TO INSTALL RUBBER SLEAVE OVER HOOK AND THE SWITCH WAS DEPRESSED AND LIGHT WOULD GO OFF.SWITCH OPERATES LIKE DOOR AJAR SWITCH. ALSO MY TOP HEAD TO BE SLIGHTLY REALIGNED TO CENTER LATCHES IN SLOT. ON THE INSIDE OF THE TOP WITH THE TOP HALF RAISED YOU CAN SEE TWO STOP ADJUSTMENTS ONE ON THE LEFT AND ONE ON THE RIGHT. THEY HAVE A ROUND RUBBER HEAD ABOUT AN INCH WIDE WITH AN ALLEN SCREW IN MIDDLE TURNING SCREW DETERMINES HOW FAR FORWARD O BACK THE TOP STOPS. AFTER ADJUSTING THE SCREW IS LOCKED INTO PLACE BY TIGHTENING NUT A BASE. MAKE SMALL ADJUSTMENTS TILL YOU GET THE HOOKS CENTERED. HOPES THIS HELPS SOMEONE.

Wont start acts like a dead battery wont even click when trying to start, had the battery checeked and charged still wont start 2001 town and coutry


Could be the starter. Check the cable from the battery to the starter. If that's o.k., on a level surface (so it won't roll very far) Pull the gear lever down in drive and try to move it forward a little. If the starter is bad the armator or the bendix may move enough to engage. Try tapping the starter lightly with a hammer. Some towns have shops that will repair a starter cheaper than you can buy a rebuilt one. Check the price first though.
