My name is ***** *****. Is there a safety to prevent top

Customer Question

Hi. My name is ***** *****. Is there a safety to prevent top from going all the way down? I forgot I had an empty box in trunk and tried to put top down. ( I know I wasn't supposed to have anything there, it was just an empty box). Anyway the top started to go down, and stopped when it hit the box. Now it starts to open, but stops right before the top starts folding. Help!!
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: It unlatches, starts to go up and back, then stops
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Chrysler Mechanics generally expect a deposit of about $16 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied).

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!No vehicle information was posted with the question but I'm assuming you have a 2007 or later Sebring or 200. If that's the case then the protection between the top and items in the trunk is the cargo divider. There is a switch in one side where the cargo divider installs and prevents the top from moving if the divider is not in place. If items are in front of the divider or the divider isn't being used (something holding the switch closed) then mechanical damage will be done to the top if it hits something when opening.What year and model is the vehicle?
