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.

2008 sebring convertible when top is up trunk will not close


Mine took several hard slams to latch, with top up or down. Finally got dealer to adjust the latch which they originally said wasn't possible. Wore grooves into the latch rod while it was out of adustment, but at least now it closes.

Trying to change spark plugs. 3 are visible. other are under a covering and don't know how to get the cover off. Also, on the convertible, something was bent and top will not go all the way down.


some of the covers have 1-2 bolts holding them down, normally 1 on each side, then there are some of the plastic covers that just pop straight up, and off, check yours for these suggestions. on the convertible top problem, raise up top slowly, and then check the areas of where it goe's back down to make sure nothing is restricting it from going all the way down. also check the metal arms that hold the top in position.

Effective immediately Rapid Response Transmittal (RRT) 07-040 is cancelled

NOTE : This notification applies only to the above vehicles built from August 31, 2007 through September 28, 2007 (MDH 083100 through 092821).


IMPORTANT : Some of the involved vehicles may be in dealer vehicle inventory. Dealers should complete this repair on these vehicles before retail delivery. Dealers should also perform this repair on vehicles in for service. Involved vehicles can be determined by using the VIP inquiry process.



Subject
The Power Top Control Module (PTCM) software on about 1,200 of the above

Lowering convertible top


There should be latches you have to pull first to unlock the top from the windshield. Pull down the sun visors, the handles should be under them. Then push the power top switch.
