Question Answered: Convertible top problem
February 22, 2011, 10:35 AM
Get it fixed and then SELL IT I have had nothing but problems with mine and because of this I will never own another convertible unless it is under warranty and then I would have to think about it!! I had the potentiameter replaced and then have problems with the top going back up and completing its cycle the light flashes on the dash and so this triggers the car to tell me this by dinging and not stopping. Unother words I got the top back up on mine as well with the help of 2 other people but it still is dinging and the light is flashing. It is a very costly repair of course and just seems like its better to keep it up bcse you never know what is going to happen when you try to put it down even if I got it fixed!!
Problem Reported: Sun Visors Will Not Stay Up and Interior Light Stays On

The sun visor can break at the hinge area, causing the visor to fall down. This break can also cause the interior lights to stay on all the time, draining the battery. Disconnecting the visor will stop the lights from draining the battery, but the visor will need to be replaced to address this problem properly.

Problem Reported: Check engine light is on due to secondary air injection system
May 27, 2010, 11:08 AM

If the check engine light is on and diagnostic trouble codes point to the air pump system, then the entire system needs to be checked.

There are a few issues that arise from the vacuum lines becoming plugged or disconnected but the most common issue is the air pump itself fails. The reason the air pump often fails is from a defective air pump check valve that allows exhaust gasses to contaminate the pump.Replacement of the air pump and check valve is necessary to address this issue.

One thing to be aware of: If the problem is not addressed eventually these exhaust gasses can contaminate the MAF Sensor and Oxygen Sensors as well, causing the engine to run very poorly and cost much more to fix.

The convertible top may have problems with the micro-switches and potentiometers that help control the raising and lowering of the top.
