hey how are , sorry I just logged back in for today

these are the location of the micro switches , if you have an ohmmeter you can check them for resistance ,since no scanner is available .it is not an accurate test like a scanner for sure, but the is the best you can do with out a capable scanner, you can read them and the resistance of them should match if you see one has no resistance change it

I checked switches 6 7 9 and changed deck bar cylinder position senser but trunk and second stage opens up but soft top doesn't fold back it stops also how do check senser 8&10 with meter and how to get to switches 1,2&3
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 11 months ago.

the only test you can do without having a diagnostic scanner that can pull up lived data on the system and see the switches position, the only thing you can do is ohm the out for resistance they usually should all match or close numbers, like 8 to 15 ohms you need to see.

the switch 1,2 & 3 you have to dismantle the trim around where the roof close at the frame to get to them .
