Customer Question

Chuck, I have an 07 GT Convertible. Sometimes the top won't go down, yet in can drive a couple miles stop then it will go down and needless to say, visevetsa. Almost like a possible short or something. When I works it works great both ways. When it doesn't, the windows still go down and sometimes more then few I can hear a a double click. Then nothing, every time I push the rocker switch in the downward position. Not sure if I hear it the other way going up. Hell, I can't hardly hear regardless

Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Unfortunately what usually acts up or fails here is one of the roofs limit/position switches sending a false signal on what position the roof is in.It may be that when driven the movement of the vehicle allows the acting up switch/sensor to send the correct signal then allowing the top to then operate properly.

What has to be done from here is to have the fault codes checked in all computers to see what codes are set.Then those codes diagnosed to then locate and repair this fault.If no codes are set then the scan tool is used to read the sensor signals to locate the faulty limit sensor/switch needing replaced.Your model has several of these sensors so this does need done to pinpoint which sensor is at fault.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation.
