I try to be here most weekdays and some weekends. If you respond and I do not respond back right away I will do so as soon as I can.

Chrysler Mechanic: Pete, Technician replied 2 months ago

O.k., what is occurring is one of the roof position sensor/switches is not sending the correct signal. This allows the top to open to a certain point and stop like your seeing but allows the top to then close as needed. There are several of these position switch/sensors on your model here that can act up causing this fault.

What has to be done is to have a fully compatible scan tool that can read all computers in your model plugged into your vehicles data port to see what codes are set. Once this is done any codes set then need to be diagnosed to then help to locate and repair this issue here. If no codes are set then the scan tool is used to monitor the roof position sensors to locate the faulty sensor sending a false signal and then that sensor will have to be replaced.

This has to be done to help in locating and repairing this issue here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above). You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question. I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks, Pete

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
