How do I get past the check soft top error?
Expert:  Eric replied 1 year ago.


I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

Ok, in order to see if there is a reset procedure or a method to retreive the fault codes to see what is failing on your softtop, I need to know the year of your 900S as I do not see that listed anywhere and year is critical in pulling up schematics and directions

1996 900 S
Expert:  Eric replied 1 year ago.


Ok, for the 1996 900S, it requires a scan tool to both reset and relearn the soft top as well as read the fault codes to diagnose it, so unfortunately unless you have a factory level scan tool, it will require a visit to the shop for this
