Smart top installation

Well,
I have finally got round to installing my smart top module,
however,having followed the instructions i then reconnected the battery and bingo a flashing green led.but upon pressing the remote unlock twice to test the windows as suggested, the cooling fan comes on.
I have submitted a support ticket to mods4cars and await a reply, but wondered if anyone had any suggestions

thanks in advance
Chris

Have a response from Mods4cars, they are stating there is an incorrect connection within the wiring, so please recheck all connections and i will find the mistake. I am impressed with their speedy response

A lot of problems arise with getting the correct pink wire in the fuse box , you might want to start there ...

Will now have a revisit to the fuse box wires
Thanks

Hi,
All sorted now
My thanks to Jbanks15 and Curro101 who was spot on the money, the pink wire from fuse no7 had another wire connected also, but that was the correct one, after changing the connections it works perfectly,
Fantastic forum thanks for your help guys.

So should I invest in this device. Or is it more trouble than it's worth?

No trouble at all. It makes putting the top up and down so much easier. I highly recommend it, but then again probably everyone who has one would highly recommend it too!

Definitely worth doing
A fantastic piece of kit
I had a minor problem where i had connected the the wrong pink wire at the fusebox ( Quickly pointed out to me on this forum )
No looking back now, it is working fine.

I had woolly by my side when I fitted mine and had exactly the same issue and it was exactly that, an incorrect connection.

Usually between $289 -$299 US dollars. You can convert. See Dbgrn's sig block for where he bought his in your neck of the woods
