This is a 1 owner , immaculate roadster...which wont be driven hard by me...only once in awhile. Is that just too many miles on a 4 Cyl engine to risk it? Thank you so much!

automatic roof light blinks and beeps wing windows won't go up after manually putting roof up. roof stopped working when I dropped a bag of potting soil into the trunk. It may have hit a latch or sensor

Recently bought and ran great when I purchased it but suddenly it doesn't accelerate properly when stopped. On highway at high speeds if I hit a bump u can feel a noticeable pickup in speed and power or vice versa I have no clue what to do

What makes the high beam not to work?

Car tact, speedometer, temp, fuel, when car cooled off, they work, when ran briefly and restarted they stop working?

Started car in garage. Shut off. Tried to start 6hrs later. Car turns over, acts like its gonna start then falls flat on It's face. Shows "start fail" for maint code on dash.

soaks floor board on that side of the car when I run it thru a car wash

My Mechanic is suggesting that it may be the malfunction of a 'Relay". This is the first time this occurred. I drove the vehicle the evening before the morning when it did not start.

It will continue to flash until I put the roof up, which resets everything. It will also continue to beep periodically every may 10-15 minutes for maybe 15 secs again until the roof is raised and the system is reset. It is very annoying. I think it may have something to do with the sensors perhaps but I am not sure and need advice on a fix so I can go back to enjoying driving the car with the top down. Please help!

The battery has been replaced twice. I run it while parked until it reaches 180 operational temp. on days it isn't driven. Yet it will not start w/o the Battery Tender being connected. All diagnostic checks are alright. The front right fender(battery side) was damaged & repaired.

Took it to a shop and they stated it was the computer under the hood, they said it got wet, which seem impossible they way it is sealed

My voltage meter reads 12 volts after recharging and I get nothing, no dash lights, head lights, nothing. Everything is dead. What should I try next?

I close the luggage cover (meaning it is pulled out and latched), the hand brake is pulled on, the rear windows go down and I can hear the motor trying to open the top, but it seems like something is locking it in the closed position. The light does not blink indicating there is a malfunction. The trunk hydraulics do not keep the truck lid up, I have to use a stick to keep it opened. Does this have anything to do with the problem?

The car will brake and pull to the side quickly, the warning light will flash and the ESP/BAS light will stay on until I turn the car off. It happens very quickly, but scares me when it happens. It will occurs in all weather conditions.

Sometimes im in a hurry and just jump in my car and start her and take off. Not giving her the opportunity to warm up. Could that cause my check engine light to come on and diagnostics give me a code of P0410?
Just curious cause theres no change in the way the car runs. She runs great. I didnt continue driving her after I noticed the check engine light come on. I drove straight home and parked her till we did a diagnostics and havent drove her since. But driving her home I was paying attention to see if there was any change in the way she drives and etc... Shes my baby and I love her.I just got her a few weeks ago

repaced fuses, O2 sensor. Check engine light still on. what I should check next

The material seems tone shrinking somehow. It is still attached at the sides and ends but is unglued in the middle and hangs down but the material seems tight.
It's odd. Most of the time when the liner comes loose on a car it just sags down on your head.

It won't crank but you can cross over and it will crank but wont start
