So This weekend i had a dreaded top problem. My top went down fine, we drove to a drive in, it started to drizzle and so I went to put the top up, and the trunk opened but the top did not go up. when i went to put the trunk back down the button started to blink and the trunk stayed up. The hydraulics are working fine with no leaks, so i know that this is not the problem. That leads to the lock cyclendar in the roof not working correctly(?) or a microswitch. I have the top up manually, but I need to get it fixed an am willing to go to in Indy shop to have it fixed right, i just want to give them something to start with.
first of all could it be a problem with the roof lock actuator getting stuck in the locked position when the top os down?
which Microswitch would give me this problem?
any help would be great so I can cut down on the labor rate of diagnosing the problem with the top. If its something easy I wouldnt mind doing it myself.
Also how would you go about getting the roof to work again automaticly?
As always your help is wonderful.
