Chrysler Sebring 2008 convertible top malfunction message


As long as the trunk is open, It won't work. The top has it's own computer. Have the codes read. Takes a scanner. These have like 20 sensors and switches for the top and trunk. You can try to close the latch on the trunk with a screwdriver to get it to work. Another thing is there is a cover that pulls out . This has to be pulled out and latched in place. This will keep it from working also.

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.

Chrysler sebring roof wont open


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.

What would cause the convertable top malfunction?


ALL CONVERTABLE TOPS HAVE SEVERAL PIVOT POINTS THAT MUST OPERATE SMOOTHLY TO RETRACT AND CONTRACT TO THE CAR! ALSO A MOTOR HAS TO OPERATE ALL THIS OPERATION! IF ANY OF THOSE PIVOT POINTS ARE BENT, RUSTED, OR NOT WORKING PROPERLY, IT WILL CAUSE A MALFUNCTION!
