the trunk button is not working
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 year ago.

unfortunately you need a Chrysler scanner or equivalent to read the fault codes and find out , which micro switch that tells the top to move in sequence went bad , or any of the trunk, or top latches went bad , or the top module itself is acting up.

if you already did the battery reset and did nit solve the problem that is the only way , since you mentioned the trunk button also, that tells me more like a bcm module that controls that

if trunk is closed but the switch is bad and telling the control module , hey you can move top because trunk is open , even though it is not , then it will drop the window like it supposed but cant go to next step .

Please let me know

Thank You
