  1. Hi fellow Porsche owners please help me!!!! My 997 2005 cab doesn't seem to want to latch. It tries then unlatches and tries to latch again and won't stop this until I take my finger off the switch. I am do this at a time of roof closed tight but obviously it hasn't finished naturally so won't let me operate the windows and the note on the dash says convertible top not in limit position. I did see a similar problem on the 996 forum bit that was to replace the plastic cover on the latch hook. I don't think they have that on the 997 plus my latch does fully go in the hole and trigger the switch I can hear it click. I have also metered that switch and it is open or closed. Have I missed something here? My indie has put the roof through a calibration and nothing flagged up. Any ideas welcome please peeps. :)) Ed.
  2. Hi guys. My 997 cab is doing exactly the same thing. I tried pushing the microswitch with a pen and no different . The top tries to latch and unlatches and so on. I metered the microswitch and it is either open or closed, is this right ? My indie has had it and run it through a calibration and all seems ok no problems kicking up on the machine. They even swapped the control unit under Passenger seat,wasn't that. So still have this problem of latching and unlatching . The 997 didn't have the plastic cover and is hitting the switch ok in the windshield. Am I missing something here guys. Summers coming and I need it working!!!! ?
